ESPN Watch List offensive tackle Demetrius Knox is a coveted prospect.
GigEmNation is taking a weekly position-by-position look at the 2014 recruiting class as it relates to Texas A&M, whom the Aggies are targeting as well as 2013 commits and who on the roster will graduate. Today, we look at the offensive linemen:
Andy Bauer (St. Louis/De Smet Jesuit): The ESPN Watch List tackle has more than 30 offers, including Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Texas A&M. He recently decommitted from Missouri and is open to all options right now.
Ty Barrett (Dallas/Skyline): The ESPN Watch List tackle (6-foot-5, 285 pounds) has offers from Louisiana-Lafayette, Mississippi, Texas Tech and West Virginia. He has camped at Texas A&M and visited unofficially for the LSU game.
Blake Blackmar (Houston/Clear Lake): The 6-5, 299-pound tackle doesn't have an offer yet but has interest from several schools. He unofficially visited Texas A&M's game against LSU in October.
Demetrius Knox (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints Episcopal): The ESPN Watch List tackle has an impressive offer list that includes Alabama, Ohio State, Texas and Texas A&M but his favorite is Texas, where his high school teammate Daniel Gresham is currently committed.
Braden Smith (Olathe, Kan./Olathe South): The ESPN Watch List tackle has at least 15 offers, including from schools such as Kansas State, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Stanford, TCU, Texas and Texas A&M.
