Nacogdoches Offensive Lineman Jacob Bragg Receives First Offer
After all the junior day invitations he’s received, Jacob Bragg’s first offer was only a matter of time.
Nacogdoches’ 6-foot-3, 300-pound offensive lineman received that first offer late Monday afternoon from Louisiana Tech, according to his Twitter account.
Bragg attended the Texas junior day Feb. 23 with teammate Greg Roberts, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound defensive lineman. The Nacogdoches players were two of several East Texans who attended the event, including Mount Pleasant receiver K.D. Cannon, Jasper offensive lineman Terrell Cuney, Sulphur Springs athlete Willy Ivery, and Lufkin defensive tackle D.J. Williams, according to HookEm.com.
Bragg has also attended an Oklahoma State junior day the weekend of Feb. 16. The Cowboys and Longhorns are two of at least 10 schools that have invited Bragg to junior day events, joining Alabama, Boise State, Georgia Tech, LSU, SMU, Texas State, UTSA, and Washington State.
The 2014 East Texas class could include multiple Division I FBS offensive linemen. Bragg and Cuney both play center for their high school teams. The 6-foot-3, 260-pound Cuney has offers from TCU, Texas, and Texas Tech.
Carthage guards Adrian Goodacre (6-4, 310) and Griffin Bankhead (6-3, 290), Daingerfield tackle Willie Evans (6-4, 340), and John Tyler tackle Travaughn Moore (6-3, 260) are also potential FBS prospects. Goodacre recently attended an SMU junior day.
Bragg is the 14th player in the 2014 East Texas football class to receive a Division I FBS offer. Click here for a list of the other 13 players and their offers.
