RECRUITING: Waxahachie OL loves Oklahoma

Waxahachie, Texas OL Marlon Winn is waiting for Oklahoma's offer.


Marlon is a very athletic big men that some college coaches like on the defensive side of the ball. Marlon believes he is being recruited more on offense and thus the designation as an offensive tackle.

Last year was the first year for Winn to start at offensive tackle, but this year he will go both ways as he adds defensive tackle to his resume.

Winn finished last season with 10 pancake blocks and the only sack he gave up last season was to Ennis, Texas star Greg Jones.

"He was awesome and really hard to pin down," said Winn. "I tried to keep him contain and that was though all night. Greg was the best player I played against all last season."

Winn can bench 295 pounds, squats 435 and he had a 25-inch vertical jump at the Texas A&M combine last week.

"I thought I performed pretty well at the combine, but I scratched on my bench press," said Winn. "I had a good time at the combine and it was fun participating in it. I didn't let all the coaches get to me. And to be honest, I have gotten used to them because they are always at my school."

Winn hopes to camp at TCU, SMU and Oklahoma State. Oklahoma State and SMU are the two schools who have offered at this point, but a number of schools talk to Winn each week.

"Oklahoma State Head Coach Les Miles came down to see me the first week that he was on the road," said Winn. "I also like Kansas State and I love Oklahoma, but I haven't heard much from them. do get some mail and they have told me that they will be getting in touch with me soon. I am keeping my options open because I expect to hear from a lot more schools."

Winn has qualified.
