Ledwik Makes the Call

While the longstanding football rivalry between Texas and Texas A&M have been put on-hold after the Aggies transitioned to the SEC, the two lone star schools are still battling head-to-head for some of the top recruiting talent in the state. On Saturday, A&M won the battle of a fast-rising OL from La Grange.

While the longstanding football rivalry between Texas and Texas A&M has been put on-hold after the Aggies transitioned to the SEC, the two lone star schools are still battling head-to-head for some of the top recruiting talent in the state. Last week, coaches from both programs offered La Grange offensive lineman Zach Ledwik after impressive camp performances in Austin and College Station.

The 6-foot-5, 272-pound lineman followed that up with another campus visit to each school this past week for a final look before ultimately coming to a decision today.

According to a text from Ledwik's mother, the fast-rising versatile offensive lineman with over 15 D-1 offers called the Texas A&M coaches and committed to the Aggies on Saturday.

Ledwik's pledge gives head coach Kevin Sumlin three OL commits in the 2014 class. With first round draft pick Luke Joeckel now in the pros, and Jake Matthews, Cedric Ogbuehi, and Jarvis Harrison looking to make that jump to the NFL over the next 1-2 seasons, the Aggies need to refill the pipeline. Based on the recent interest in the La Grange native, Ledwik will have Aggie fans feeling much better about the future of the OL despite the expected attrition to the NFL in 2013 and 2014.
