Akamnonu Back from Texas

The No. 21 ranked offensive tackle in the country took a one-day unofficial visit to the University of Texas on Friday. The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Madison Akamnonu checks in from Arlington (TX) Bowie high school and liked what he and his family heard in Austin.

Scout.com recently moved Madison Akamnonu to the elite four-star status. Akamnonu and his family visited Austin this weekend and they were thoroughly impressed with the message.

"My mom, dad and little brother," Madison Akamnonu responded when asked who made the unofficial visit with him earlier today.

Offensive line coach Joe Wickline has made the four-star offensive tackle a top priority and he relayed that message again today in person.

"He talked to me about playing left tackle," Akamnonu said. "He showed me a few offensive line tips and the run and pass blocking. I felt comfortable around him, which was a bonus. Speaking with coach [Charlie] Strong and the coaching staff was a big part also. Me and my family really liked him and he seemed fun and serious when the time called for it."
