Square receives another offer

Houston Yates defensive end Damian Square recently added another offer to his list of options. Aggie Websider's David Sandhop visited with Square about the new offer and what it means for his recruiting process and Texas A&M.

Houston Yates defensive end Damian Square has seen his stock reach new heights this summer, as many of the elite Division-1 programs from across the country continue to pursue his commitment and eventual signature on National Signing Day.

Square has yet to narrow his list of schools, but he's been offered by the likes of Alabama, Nebraska, Tennessee, Florida, Miami, and Texas A&M to name a few. Add the Michigan Wolverines to that list as well.

"Michigan has stepped it up lately and I'm hearing from them a lot," Square said. "I've just started evaluating them, but I see where I can fit into their system. My skills fit what they are looking for at defensive end."

For an 18 year-old who's being pursued by some of the top coaches and programs in the nation, the 6-foot-3, 260-pound prospect is taking his time evaluating his options carefully and having fun with the process.

"I'm just chillin' and evaluating all of these schools," Square said. "I'm still trying to set up some visits to Alabama and Florida, and anywhere else I can get to but it's hard to find the time to schedule these trips."

The Scout.com four-star prospect is in no hurry to narrow his list of favorites and does not have a timetable for the recruiting process. He says he'll know it when he feels it.

"I'm still collecting information about each school and seeing where I belong," Square said. "I don't know enough yet to say I have a leader. Everybody is even. Hopefully, it will just come to me at a place where I feel the vibe and feel comfortable."

One trip that is scheduled and a little easier for the Houston native to make is the inaugural "Game Night" camp at Texas A&M on July 20, a prestigious event that is attended through invitation only for the top prospects interested in the Aggies.

"I'm going up to A&M for their Game Night thing. It should be good. Everybody is going to be there," Square said. "A lot of guys I know like Sam (McGuffie) and Rod Davis are supposed to go. I'll see what I see. Hopefully it will feel like home."

Square originally committed to Texas A&M along with his cousin Leroy Chevalier in February during a junior day event. The pair later decommitted, wanting to open up the recruiting process and check out some other schools. Chevalier recently recommitted to the Aggies. Will that influence Square's decision?

"Leroy evaluated his options and felt A&M was the best place for him," Square said. "It may be the best place for me. It may not. I have to go through my thought processes and make the right choice. If it's A&M, then being there with Leroy would be great but I've got to do what's best for me."

In the meantime, the blue chip defensive lineman is going to sit back, enjoy the process, and do his research on the many schools looking to sign him.
