Texas DT O'Guin gets SMU offer Saturday

Van Vleck High School Junior Michael O'Guin attended SMU's Junior Day Saturday and picked up an official offer from Mustang head coach June Jones. Go inside to see what offers O'Guin currently has and what he thought of his visit to the Hilltop.

Being a high school coaches son can have its advantages.

For one Texas high school junior, it has given him the opportunity to play for two high schools in the last two years.

That hasn't stopped college recruiters from finding defensive tackle Michael O'Guin. The talented defender currently has two official offers and is being recruited by several Big 12 schools.

"I got my second offer Saturday at SMU's Junior Day," told Scout.com. "It was a good experience, I really like the SMU campus. It's right in the middle of Dallas, there is a lot of things to do."

O'Guin, a 6-foot-2, 295-pound athlete that runs a 5 0 forty, also has an offer from Kansas State and is being recruited by Missouri, TCU, Nebraska and Tulsa.

"Right now I'm interested in all the schools that are showing me interest," O'Guin said. "I hope to make a trip to Missouri during the spring or summer, I may go to a summer camp there in June, I'm not sure yet where all I'm going to go to camps at. Missouri invited me to their junior day but it was farther away and it was the same day as the SMU Jr. Day."

O'Guin got a chance to meet SMU's head coach June Jones and was very impressed with the second year coach.

"He is so laid back," O'Guin said. "He seems to be a great guy, I got a chance to meet a lot of their coaching staff."

O'Guin played his sophomore season at Ft. Bend Hightower High School with another SMU commitment Darius Johnson. O'Guin's father Michael Sr. was hired as the head coach and athletic director at Van Vleck High School where he played his junior season.

"Darius and I are pretty good friends," O'Guin said. "I wouldn't mind playing college ball with him again."

O'Guin has no early favorites and plans on taking unofficial visits to several schools throughout the southwest and Midwest before making a final decision.
