Lewisville (Texas) five-star offensive tackle Michael Fasusi has trimmed his list of top schools down to seven.

The 6-foot-4.5, 285-pound trench monster told On3’s Hayes Fawcett on Monday that he is down to USC, Oregon, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Missouri, Georgia and Texas.

Fasusi is the No. 19 overall prospect and No. 5 OT in the 2025 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He’s also the No. 6 player in Texas.

Fasusi was in College Station visiting the Aggies over the weekend and provided an update to On3’s Steve Wiltfong following his trip to the in-state program.

“It was great. I had a great time. Me and the fam, love being up there,” Fasusi said of the Aggies trip. “What it all comes down to is I think I can develop there and it’s the right environment for me. I love the coaching staff, Coach (Mike) Elko, Coach (Adam) Cushing those are my guys, great guys. There was a lot of energy too.”

Texas is currently trending for Fasusi’s pledge, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine (RPM). Last month, Longhorns insider Eric Nahlin logged a pick in favor of the in-state Longhorns.

“Missouri, (Texas) A&M, (Oklahoma) and Texas, I’m really tight with those schools,” Fasusi told On3 in March. “So, I think I’m getting to that spot where it’s getting hard to choose. It’s a battle, for sure.” 

Michael Fasusi Scouting Summary

On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings Charles Power writes this about Fasusi as a prospect:

“Strong, physical offensive tackle with a high developmental upside. Measured in at around 6-foot-5 and close to 300 pounds prior to his junior season. Added significant size during the off-season between his sophomore and junior years. Has plus length for the position and a well-proportioned build. Registers as a solid athlete in the combine setting. Also showing encouraging improvement on the field as a junior, adding play strength. Latches onto defensive linemen and keeps his feet moving on contact. Gets a considerable push at the point of attack.

…Plays with an edge and works to finish blocks with authority. Shows good lateral quickness and plays with an improved base and balance. Also participates in track and field, sporting a personal best throw of 46-10 feet in the shot put as a sophomore, a strong mark. Needs to work on his pass set technique but has the baseline skills to be a solid pass protector with coaching and work. Younger for the cycle, turning 17 years old in the summer prior to his senior season.”
