Chevalier's stock continues to rise

With offers from some of the top programs in the country, and visits scheduled to more, where does A&M fit into the picture for Houston Yates offensive lineman Leroy Chevalier? Aggie Websider's David Sandhop visited with him about that very question.

Houston Yates offensive lineman Leroy Chevalier continues to see his offer list expand as his stock continues to rise. The Scout.com four-star prospect lists offers from Texas A&M, Arizona, OU, Georgia, Texas Tech, Baylor and Houston.

The 6-foot-4, 285-pound tackle prospect initially committed to the Aggies earlier this spring, but he decided to open up the recruiting process at the urging of his family and coaches.

"A&M was the first college campus I'd seen and I got caught up in the moment," Chevalier said. "After I committed, people around me said I needed to compare A&M to other schools to make sure I made the right choice so I opened it back up." With more schools now knocking at his door, is there still a place at the table for the Aggies?

"A&M is a good school and I'm still considering them," Chevalier said. "I like Coach Malone (A&M assistant coach Van Malone). There's a space at the table for A&M. We'll just have to see how things go."

Speaking of how things are going, Chevalier is certainly on the go this summer. The Houston native recently traveled to Georgia's summer camp and gives the Bulldogs high marks.

"I had a real good time. The players and coaches were great," Chevalier said. "Athens is a nice place and I learned a lot at the camp. The push-pull drill taught me a lot about properly planting my feet and defending the bull rush."

The blue chip lineman isn't done traveling and seeing other schools, as he plans to attend LSU and Alabama's camps in July.

With so many schools entering the picture Chevalier is hesitant to name a top list of favorites, and he's not sure of his timetable at the moment.

"I really don't want to name a top five or anything like that," Chevalier said. "I'm still going to camps and evaluating schools so I don't want to say I have a leader or anything like that. Hopefully, I'll narrow it down before my senior season, but we'll have to see. I just don't know."

Chevalier and fellow blue chip teammate and cousin Damion Square made an early splash when they both committed to Texas A&M in February. But Chevalier isn't sure whether or not the cousins will end up attending the same school once signing day rolls around next February.

"Damion and I are close. We're family," Chevalier said. "We'd like to go to the same school, but we also realize that different schools are offering us. Programs like OU and A&M have offered both of us, but I think we each need to come to the best decision individually. Hopefully, we'll come to the same decision and go to the same school, but it's too early to talk about that."
