Three Aggies Named to Outland Trophy Watchlist

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Matthews, Cedric Ogbuehi, and Germain Ifedi were recognized among the nation's top interior linemen.

Three Texas A&M linemen were named to the 64-man 2014 Outland Trophy Watchlist.

Mike Matthews (6'2" 285 lbs; Junior; 2L) started every game in 2013 and was named to a watchlist for the Rimington Trophy, given annually to the nation's top center.

Germain Ifedi (6'5" 320 lbs; Sophomore; 1L) started every game at right guard as a redshirt freshman and held his own in the SEC trenches. He has made some impressive cameos at RT in spring drills, which gives KDS some always-welcome OL flexibility in 2014. Young, athletic, and an absolute mauler, he is the heir apparent in an increasingly impressive line of first-round draft picks.

Cedric Ogbuehi (6'5" 300 lbs; Senior; 3L) received a first-round NFL draft grade after the 2013 season, but elected to stay for his senior year and will move from right tackle to left tackle. Ogbuehi follows Outland Trophy winner Luke Joeckel and Outland finalist Jake Matthews at the position, and is listed as the No. 1 overall pick in some 2015 mock drafts.

The Outland Trophy is awarded to the nation's top interior lineman, and includes both offensive and defensive players. The Aggies joined South Carolina, Florida State, and Oregon as the only teams with three offensive linemen on the list.
