It was just two and a half weeks ago when Sam Houston o-lineman Tony Morales picked up his first offers. Fast forward to today, and Morales has picked up another two offers, including one from SMU. Come inside as he reacts to his conversation with Coach Klemm.

It was just two and a half weeks ago when Sam Houston o-lineman Tony Morales picked up his first offers. Fast forward to today, and Morales has picked up another two offers, plus received interest from another Big 12 school.

"Coach Klemm wanted me to call him, and he told me they watched my film today, and that after ten plays they decided they wanted to offer me," said Morales to PonyStampede.com. "He said that I could play guard or right tackle. Whichever I'm more confident with. I prefer to play guard, because I like playing inside and that is what I play on my team."

At 6'4, 300 pounds, Morales would have a shot at making an immediate impact with the Mustangs.

"I didn't expect them to offer me this fast, because Coach Klemm told me they don't offer a lot of guys right away," said the junior. "I would say that right now, Tech, Kansas State, Missouri, and SMU are all pretty equal. I want to see what each school has to offer."

Besides for his offers from those schools, Oklahoma has recently picked up their recruiting when it comes to this DFW product. Morales will be heading to Norman this weekend for junior day, and plans to hit the Hilltop shortly after.

Morales previously mentioned his brother Alfredo, who happens to be his twin and is also a very talented interior line prospect. Tony says that some schools have not been recruiting him as vigorously because they really believe that the brothers are going to be a package deal.

"They didn't offer my brother, but they said that they were going to come watch him during spring practices," said Morales. "I would like to go to the same place as him, but I need to find a school where I think that I can succeed at."

Last year Morales was a 5A All-District 1st team o-lineman. PonyStampede.com will have a report next week to find out if Morales has nailed down a visit to SMU and how his Oklahoma junior day went.
