Top of the Class: Top OL of the '23 Class
As we head into the 2023 Football season, we take a look at the top 2023 recruits from across the state of Texas. Our last Top of the Class focused on the top ATH's, this week we end our Offensive Top of the Class by looking at the Offensive Linemen.
**Rankings reflected as of May 18th **
**Stats and Rating gathered from Max Preps**
Harris Sewell- Odessa Permian: The top offensive linemen in the class of 2023 is Harris Sewell. The 4-Star Guard from Odessa Permian looks to continue the MOJO spirit during his senior campaign and is currently down to 5 schools heading into his senior year: Clemson, A&M, UT, OU and Alabama.
Super blessed to be in this position. From this point forward I will be focusing on these schools.
All glory to the man above!

TJ Shanahan- Westlake: The Westlake Offensive linemen will try and help lead the Chaps to their 4th state title in a row. He will be protecting a new QB this season. But the #2 Linemen for the class of 2023 is one of the key cogs into another state title run.
Markis Deal- Naaman Forest: The 6'6" 290 Jr currently holds 41 offers and is a versatile athlete on both side of the ball for Naaman Forest. He will head into his senior season not only looking to narrow down his offers, but to commit. His play during that time will go a long way in him making that decision.
