Sarvary is becoming a popular prospect

Tyler OT Drew Sarvary (6-7, 315) has seen his stock soar over the past few months and with two offers already in his back pocket he has some options to ponder. More schools have picked things up recently and as he gets ready to start camp with his teammates he hopes a great start to the 2013 season increases his standing amongst four-year schools...

"My two offers right now are from North Texas and Memphis," Sarvary told "I've been talking a lot with South Florida and they seem like they could be pretty close (to offering) and I've also been talking to Louisiana (Lafayette), Kansas, Arizona State, Baylor and Texas Tech and a few more schools too."

This will be Sarvary's first season with Tyler after playing the 2012 season at Florida A&M.

"I played left guard (starting 10 of A&M's 11 games) there last year and I just felt like I could play at a higher level," Sarvary admitted. "I had offers from ASA, Blinn, Trinity Valley and Georgia Military, but Tyler was just the right place for me and I liked the staff here a lot."

This fall, the sophomore will move from guard to hold down the all-important left tackle spot for the Apaches and with that in mind he's been hard at work on improving in every aspect of the game.

"There are some really talented pass-rushers here in our conference, so you have to be prepared every week. They keep you on your toes," Sarvary, who has faced off against Will Coleman every day in practice, noted. "I've always felt pretty comfortable in pass-protection, but I felt more comfortable doing it as a guard, so this will be a little different for me. I love run-blocking from my tackle spot. We run a lot of outside-zone and that allows me to be aggressive and get after guys.

"A big thing I've been working on is my footwork and my hands. You need to have quick hands, so I've been doing a lot of drills to improve that. I've also been running, conditioning and lifting a lot too."

Sarvary is a good student and is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
