Recruiting: Sumrall Visits Dad's Alma Mater

Austin Sumrall is a 6-6, 275-pound offensive line prospect out of powerhouse Texas high school Katy. A returning starter, Sumrall traveled with his parents on Saturday to Stillwater for Oklahoma State's second junior day this month. For Sumrall's father, Kenneth, it was a return to his college alma mater.

"Oklahoma State has always been my favorite school growing up," said Austin Sumrall of his dad's alma mater. "It was a good experience. We toured the new facilities and they were impressive, and the coaches were great, really easy to get along with. Then we went to the basketball game and that was really good, the last minute, and the final result was good."

Sumrall is early in the recruiting process, but he has heard from Houston, Northwestern and Arkansas in addition to the Cowboys. He is looking to find a major in computer engineering or some related field. He is strong academically, and physically has a 275-pound bench press and a 435-pound max on the squat.

We asked Sumrall to give us a scouting report on his play on the offensive line.

"My strengths are my quickness off the ball and knowing where to go and how to read defensive linemen and linebackers," said Sumrall. "My weakness is playing too high sometimes."

This spring he will continue to work on his strength in the weight room as he was just measured again and moved from 6-5 to 6-6. He will also throw the shot in track for Katy this spring.
