Aguilar gets TCU offer

Birdville offensive lineman Joas Aguilar recently added an offer from TCU and talked about his recent visit to watch the Frogs practice.

Richland Hills (TX) Birdville offensive lineman Joas Aguilar was somewhat of an unknown in recruiting circles until he made a verbal commitment to Texas A&M nearly a month ago.

Since that time, Aguilar has picked up two more offers from Big 12 schools; Baylor and most recently TCU, who offered him last weekend.

Aguilar has played on the Hawks' varsity since his freshman season and has racked up first-team all-district honors in each of his last two seasons. He also made the second-team All Star-Telegram in 2011.

Despite his commitment to A&M, Aguilar has also made visits to Baylor for a junior day and attended a TCU practice last Saturday.

"I liked it over there, the practice had a lot of hard hits and a lot of intensity," Aguilar said of the Frogs practice.

TCU's campus is very close in proximity to Aguilar's home and for that reason the big lineman has a good familiarity with the program.

"I live 15 miles away so I've always been really familiar with them. They're a really good team and they won the Rose Bowl, they're a good team," he said.

At 6-foot-5, 295-pounds, Aguilar uses his size and strength to punish defenders.

"I like finishing my blocks for sure," he said. While on his visit to College Station for an Aggie junior day, Aguilar wasted little time in making a commitment. The big lineman chose the Aggies because of their move to the SEC and the new coaching staff.

"That was my first offer," Aguilar said of Texas A&M. "They're going to the SEC and they have a new coaching staff. I really liked it there."

Aguilar maintains that he is still committed to A&M, but also admits that he's taking these visits to make sure he's made the right choice.

"I'm just looking at all of my options right now," Aguilar said.
