Blake Ivy, OT

One of the early targets along the offensive line of the Longhorns 2024 class to keep an eye on this fall is the touted four-star League City Clear Springs offensive tackle Blake Ivy. This skilled in-state product was one of the multiple 2024 recruits that got an offer from the Horns during the Texas Elite Bash back in mid-June.

Ivy has continued to see his stock rise throughout the summer since he received his Texas offer a few months ago. Yet, his offer sheet is still sitting in the single digits in terms of the number of schools.

But that might not be the case for too much longer.

Offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood and the Longhorns did a really nice job getting in on the recruitment of Ivy at a good time. That early relationship that Flood and the Longhorns staff cultivated with Ivy and his camp could pay dividends before too long.

As Ivy keeps growing and filling out his frame, he should keep looking like an OT that fills the mold of what Flood likes to have in the trenches. At 6-foot-4 and 275-pounds, Ivy is starting to fill out more of his frame. And he’s got a pretty lengthy wingspan already, just north of 80 inches.

If Flood and the Longhorns keep heightening the priority of Ivy’s recruitment this fall, that should create more interest between the two parties. I would imagine that will be the case as Ivy could be a nice foundational piece in the trenches for the Longhorns 2024 class.
