J.P. Urquidez Talks Charlie Strong, Values

One of the few 2016 offensive linemen with a Texas offer is 6-foot-6, 305-pound J.P. Urquidez. Urquidez checks in from Hyattsville (MD) Dematha Catholic High School. He has offers from Texas, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Penn State, Oklahoma and Nebraska to name a few.

J.P. Urquidez is a monster offensive linemen in the class of 2016. He has multiple offers and has only scratched the surface of his potential.

"I am 6-foot-6, 305-pounds and we are 3 and 2 on the year," Urquidez said. "I've been opening holes for four games where our running back has 275 yards on the ground. I need to work on my pad level and kicks."

"I plan on being at Texas in the coming weeks, and I will be at Baylor for the Kansas game and Oklahoma for the Oklahoma State game," Urquidez said.

What has surprised the standout linemen four weeks into the college football season?

"Injuries and all the upsets and then teams who upset a great team losing to an unranked opponent," Urquidez said.

Urquidez earned his Texas offer with his performance at Under the Lights back in July.

"Coach Strong is not letting kids who don't have their head on the right path play for him it's plain and simple," Urquidez said. To me, if every college team focused more on the core values then there would be fewer problems in the NFL. I think he had to kick off several people to make an example of them and because they were in the wrong."
