Aundre McGaskey: Enjoys Visit to Austin

La Marque offensive lineman Aundre McGaskey did not get an opportunity to take his official visit to the University of Texas with the majority of his recruiting class back in December. However, he and several other prospects took their trips to the 40 Acres this weekend. McGaskey talked about his experience in Austin.

"Yes sir, I enjoyed being around a lot of my teammates," Aundre McGaskey said when asked about his trip to Austin. "The facilities are great too. They are the top of the line. It was just a great environment."

McGaskey was reunited with one of his former teammates from La Marque High School. Rashad Bobino was his host throughout his visit. McGaskey enjoyed hanging out with Bobino and several others from the Longhorn roster.

"Rashad Bobino was my host. He is a good guy. I already knew him. He went to La Marque with me," McGaskey said. "I got to talk to some of the younger players like Sergio Kindle, Derek Lokey and Adam Ulatoski."

McGaskey also got a chance to talk with several members of the Longhorn coaching staff.

"I talked to Coach (Mack) Brown, (Mac) McWhorter, Cleve (Bryant) and some of the other coaches," McGaskey said. "They talked about getting me up there and things and a little about where I will be playing. They said I could play anywhere on the line."

The biggest eaters on any football team are usually the offensive linemen. Needless to say, McGaskey did not argue about all the food available on his visit to Austin.

"We had a lot of meetings, and we ate, and ate and ate." McGaskey said.

What was the best part of McGaskey's trip?

"I don't know," McGaskey said. "It was all good."

The 6-foot-4, 290-pound McGaskey is ranked as a four-star prospect and the number 10 offensive guard in the nation by Scout.com. He earned first-team all-district honors for his performance as a senior at La Marque.
