There are a lot of things that Johnny Manziel can do. He can easily make defenses look silly with his slipperiness. He can deliver that beautifully clutch pass at just the right moment. He can set bowl records and beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa. And he can completely change the way teams defend his Texas A&M team because of how dangerous he is with a football in his hands. But what he can’t do is get paid for all of this. The Heisman Trophy winner, who because the first freshman in college football history to win the sport’s most coveted individual award, has done plenty for his school — and the NCAA — but can’t see a dime for his duty, unless he wants to lose his eligibility.

The Longhorns are looking to continue stockpiling big bodies after Monday’s commitment by Desmond Harrison. Coach Stacy Searels is believed to be closing in on yet another top notch offensive line prospect: Irving High School Tackle, Rami Hammad. Hammad’s measurable are impressive: 6’5″ and 320 pounds. Hammad is ranked by Rivals as the 172nd prospect nationally, 28th at his position, and 78th overall in the state of Texas. Hammad took an official visit to the 40 Acres this past weekend that lead to him to end his his nearly three month commitment to Baylor. Hammad now lists a top four of Texas, TCU, Baylor, and Oklahoma and is set to announce at 5:00 PM today. It is believed that Texas is clearly the team to beat for Hammad due to how quickly he backed out of his verbal commitment to Baylor after the weekend visit to Austin. A quick film study of shows Hammad to be an aggressive and nasty blocker. He will sustain blocks 10-15 yards downfield on running plays and has a strong base in passing sets. He’s not nearly the physical specimen that Desmond Harrison is, but it’s easy to see that he has a mean streak and isn’t afraid to mix it up. Video: FOX Sports Next – OL Rami Hammad I am concerned, however, with one thing in regards to Hammad and it has nothing to do with what I see on film. On film I see consistency and focus. His recruitment shows something else. June 8, 2012: Hammad commits to Oklahoma State University. November 13, 2012: backs out of his commitment to Oklahoma State and jumps ship to Baylor. January 20, 2013: backs out of his commitment to Baylor (presumably to again jump ship and commit to Texas) I won’t be sold on Hammad to Texas until the signature is faxed in on National Signing Day – especially due to the close proximity of Gary Patterson and TCU. That being said, the idea of adding a young man of his size and disposition to this offensive line is more than intriguing. Here’s an interview Hammad did with Rivals awhile back:

Thanks for all the emails this week. Here’s where you can reach me. Stay tuned tonight for coverage of the Cotton Bowl on the blog, and live commentary via Twitter. Kevin in Austin, Texas writes: David, Why is it that when a player from the state of Texas does well at another school, not at UT, that it was a mistake by us or that we weren’t smart enough to recruit them? We can’t recruit every player that comes from Texas. For example, when Manziel won the Heisman.
