Garrett Greenlea is arguably the best junior offensive lineman in the state of Texas. The Klein Collins product has offers from Arizona, Baylor, Duke, Houston, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Ole Miss, and Texas Tech. USC has also expressed interest in Greenlea's talents. Websider's Taylor Hamm talked to Coach Svoboda and got a full scouting report on Greenlea.

On Garrent's abilities on the field,

"Garrett is a really athletic offensive lineman. That's the one thing he can do that not everyone has. He runs under a 5-flat in the 40, he is 6'-7" and 285 pounds. He has a great mindset. He wants to be great, which not every player does, he truly has a burning desire to be one of the great ones and with his ability level I don't see any reason why he can't be. He needs to continue honing his skills and develop the work ethic that he already possesses."

Thoughts on why Texas and Texas A&M haven't been as aggressive with offers as other schools,

"I don't know. They have their reasons. I don't know what is holding them back because in my opinion he is one of the best offensive linemen in the state of Texas. That's their business. I am assuming that maybe schools like Texas A&M who signed a bunch of linemen lately haven't made that position a priority."

On Garrett's performance in the classroom,

"He is a solid student. Without giving out his score, it was in the 4-digits. He takes care of his business in the classroom and that shouldn't be an issue for a school not offering him."

On Garrett's plans with upcoming junior days,

"He is going to OU and Texas had him coming up to a junior day, not sure which one it was, it's either this weekend or the next weekend. OU has one coming up and he is excited about getting up to Norman. There are so many of these junior days that it is hard for him to pick and choose which ones he wants to go to."

On potential leaders,

"I do know that Oklahoma is near and dear to his heart right now. I think it would be a true statement when I say that OU is probably the leader at this point. I still think there is a lot to be determined on that. I know he has family up there and that makes a difference. I still think there is a lot of research that needs to be done on different universities. I don't think he is ready to make a decision by any means."

On Greenlea and Texas A&M,

"Coach Wyatt was recruiting here but now that he is with Kansas I don't know who will be handling this area. Coach Turner was down here a few weeks ago and checked him out. I don't know really where they stand with Garrett. I think he would be interested if they offered."
