The offers have been pouring in for Jake Matthews since the 2008 season ended. The 6-4.5, 275-pound versatile offensive line prospect has received offers from the likes of Texas A&M, Stanford, Texas Tech, Arkansas, Georgia, Oregon, Oklahoma State, Duke and Houston. In addition to the nine offers in hand, many more programs from coast to coast are showing heavy interest.

After growing over an inch and gaining more than 25 pounds from sophomore to junior seasons, Matthews has blossomed into one of the top prospects in the nation. He is the #3 overall prospect on the Burnt Orange Beat 2010 Top 125 in Texas. Blessed with quick feet, balance, the ability to run and technique that is well beyond his years, the son of NFL Hall of Fame lineman Bruce Matthews needs only to continue to fill out and gain strength.
