Several Schools Watching Mizerak

North Garland offensive lineman Tryston Mizerak is drawing interest from several programs.

North Garland, TX offensive lineman Tryston Mizerak recently picked up his second offer of the recruiting process with Lamar University coming forward. In addition to Lamar, the 6-foot-6, 280-pounder also has an offer from Rice and is receiving interest from several others.

Despite North Garland's disappointing 2-8 season from 2012, that hasn't stopped several programs from stopping by the school to get an up close look at Mizerak during spring evaluations.

"I've talked with Iowa, Oklahoma State, TCU, Tulsa, SMU and Utah," he said. "Those are the schools off the top of my head that have been there. A lot of them are trying to get me to their camps; Tulsa said if I have a good camp I could possibly walk away with an offer.

"I've gotten a call from Louisiana-Monroe and they said I'm high on their list but they haven't offered anyone so they want to get guys down to their camp to make sure they're the right fit before they offer."

Mizerak made a couple of unofficial visits to TCU over the spring and has been visited by offensive line coach Eddie Williamson and offensive coordinator Rusty Burns this spring.

"The offensive line coach came by but they were only there for thirty minutes because it was the defensive part of the practice and I'm primarily an offensive player and getting recruited to play offense," he said. "So, they were only there for half an hour but before practice started they said they came to see how I work."

Although an offer hasn't been discussed with TCU, Mizerak hopes to change that this summer as he plans to attend a one-day camp in Ft. Worth. He's also planning to hit several other camps in addition to TCU's.

"Right now I have TCU, Tulsa, Sam Houston State but they're having a camp with Arizona State so I'm mainly going for Arizona State, Baylor, Texas Tech and SMU," he said. "I may go to North Texas."
