Top JUCO tackle Badara Traore To OV Texas

Recommended Posts

We were able to confirm with four star JUCO offensive tackle Badara Traore that he will in fact take an official visit to Texas as originally reported by Mike Roach of 247. Texas have a big need at the tackle spot and you can bet the House instant playing time will be a selling point.

– Badara Traore: Orangebloods.com was the first to report the news but ASA College (NY) OT Badara Traore plans to officially visit Texas next weekend (October 21st) when Texas hosts Oklahoma State. Traore is a tough guy to get a read on, as he holds offers from schools like OU, Auburn, Georgia, Ohio State, and about 30 others. The thing is that I don’t think all of those offers are commitable right now. Traore is 6’8 315 pounds, so he’s a huge guy. The issue is that he tore his ACL last year and missed the whole season. I will say that Texas would take a commitment from Traore, at least based on what I was told.

He’s been healthy all season, but has been focusing more on the season than his recruitment. The only official visit he’s taken so far was to Auburn in late July. Traore told me that Texas is the only school he has a visit planned to as of right now. He is an early enrollee so his recruitment will be over in a few months at the latest.

Like I’ve said before, the weekend of the Oklahoma State game is going to be a huge one for Texas recruiting wise. – (Andrew)

    •   Harrison come on now. Let’s not act like top programs don’t pay high school kids under the table whether it’s cash or cars. Alabama is notorious for that. 
    • PG is not going to be the fastest team.  They have beat teams that were overall faster than them.....AR High, LE, and Atlanta are a few. However, they have bought in to the system and play as a team really well. They do not make a lot of mistakes.  The key to their success is their line play. They have dominated both sides of the line throughout the season.  In addition, they are a Senior lead team with several kids getting the chance to play at the next level. The only D1 football recruit is Xavier Benson. He has committed to Texas Tech as a LB.  WR Carson Cox has committed to play baseball at Wichita State. The other 5 to 6 players have been offered by several D2 schools.  The best lineman is #77 Nick Gavriel. His Hudl highlights are worth checking out. If he was 3 to 4 inches taller, he would be getting visits from D1 schools.  One name to watch over the next upcoming seasons is #40 DE Landon Jackson. He is a 6'6" Freshman and has started at DE all season. He leads the team in sacks and has a high motor. He possibly could outgrow football because his Dad is 6'10" and has played some pro basketball in Europe .  The kid is a great athlete. Interesting note:  If PG wins Friday, then the three Texarkana, Texas high schools (Liberty Eylau and Texas High) would have each won a state championship in football and baseball. In addition, Texarkana AR High has also won a state championship in football and baseball as well. There are not very many places with a population of less than 70,000, that can make that claim. 
    • He previously committed to Arkansas so I don’t get what you mean. He’s an elite talent being courted by elite programs and doesn’t mind going away from home. Seems to like the idea of playing in the SEC. 
    •   No, Daingerfield. Still holds the national record for shutouts in a year (14) and 0 points allowed to teams in the same classification in a state championship run, 16 game season.
