Three Offensive Players to Watch at Stampede

Breaking down three offensive players to keep an eye on at Texas Stampede Saturday.

1) Patrick Vahe, 2015 OL, Euless Trinity

Texas has put together the start of an outstanding offensive line class in 2015, including the consensus No. 1 lineman in-state in Maea Teuhema. Vahe may be the consensus No. 2, a mobile and nasty guard who fits perfectly into what the Longhorns love to do offensively. He was set to make his commitment earlier this week … so it shouldn't be a surprise if he elects to make his decision, and commit to the favored Longhorns, on his Texas visit.

2) Sotonye Jamabo, 2015 RB, Plano West

A top Texas target at the running back position, Jamabo recently visited Texas A&M and said the Aggies were at or near the top with the Longhorns. Those are big words from a guy that wore burnt orange on his A&M visit. I think Texas is still in the driver's seat here, and getting him back to the 40 Acres so quickly after his visit to College Station is a great move. Also keep an eye on fellow running back Jay Bradford of Splendora. Texas was the first major school to extend an offer to the blistering-fast back, and he'd make a great complement to Jamabo, should Texas get both players.

3) DaMarkus Lodge, 2015 WR, Cedar Hill

WIth Texas taking such a big receiver class in 2014, there's limited room on the bus for 2015 wideouts. Right now, it looks largely like a "Lodge, Kemah Siverand and shut it down" type of class (that's not counting Keke Coutee, who's already committed). That's the best-case scenario, and Texas has done such a great job recruiting Lodge that the Longhorns have made up, and then some, a ton of ground on a player who was once considered an Aggie lean. Could Texas pull in one of the top playmakers in the state?
