Denton Guyer 2025 DT Xavier Ukponu (6'3, 275) is a man on fire, picking up ten scholarship offers since winning DL MVP honors at the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 Showcase in Dallas. 

Offers: Baylor, California, Miami (FL), North Texas, Oklahoma, SMU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas State and UTSA. 

Ohio State is the most recent school to show a serious interest. 

Ukponu is mostly trying to work on his technique and getting "bigger, stronger, and faster" in the weight room as he still has two more years of high school ball left before moving on to college, but his first offer from Miami (FL) and a recent unofficial visit to Texas A&M are notable moments in his life and his recruitment.
