Massive Junior College Tackle Earns USF Offer

Tyler Junior College (TX) offensive lineman Drew Sarvary has seen his number of college suitors expand over recent months. Originally from Florida, Drew picked up an offer from back home in the Sunshine State from South Florida. USFNation.com caught up with Drew for the latest with his recruitment and the mammoth offensive tackle's reaction of possibly playing back at home.

Protecting his quarterback's blindside is what Tyler Junior College's (TX) Drew Sarvary will be in charge of for the Apaches in 2013. Previously playing in the interior for Florida A&M in 2012 where he started all but one game, Sarvary has been perfecting his skills for the transition to take on pass rushers on the outside throughout the Junior College ranks.

"Everything's been going good," Sarvary told USFNation.com. "I've been just working out and just lifting. We're all trying to get our footwork better and I'm working on my technique. We're all working as a whole offensive line, as a unit."

Providing great size and a skill set to anchor down the left tackle position, Drew's stop in Tyler, Texas has been well worth it. Collegiate coaches have dropped by his school and the interest for the offensive lineman has been steadily expanding over recent months.

"I have offers from Memphis, Texas Tech, North Texas, and South Florida," Sarvary stated. In addition to the offers Drew has garnered interest from Western Kentucky, Kansas, Arizona State, San Diego State, Louisiana Tech and more. Originally hailing from Tallahassee, FL, Coach Taggart and the Bulls staff are trying to reel Sarvary back to The Orange State to finish off his career. The possibility of playing back at home in front of friends and family would be intriguing for the Tyler star.

"It's good, I got recruited by them out of high school," Sarvary said. "Of course it was a different coaching staff, but it feels good to have an offer close to home. It's definitely a nice little option to have. I'm definitely probably going to take an official visit there."

As of right now, Sarvary doesn't have any firm visit plans, but he does have an idea which schools might host the massive tackle prospect on their campus in the near future.

"I don't have any visits set up right now," Drew added. "I'm thinking about taking one at the end of the season for USF or at the Miami game, but I haven't worked that out yet. I still have to see when my schedule lines up. I'm definitely going to take a visit to Texas Tech. I'll probably end up taking all five officials. I haven't really decided on what five will get them yet."

Several things are going to play a factor with which school Sarvary chooses to suit up for the next several seasons.

"The coaching coach is going to be a big role," Sarvary told USFNation.com. "Of course, that's the main people you hang out with while you're at school. The second would be the school itself, just the atmosphere and the academic standpoint of it."

I'll probably make my decision towards the end of the season. Somewhere towards the end of the season I probably will."
