Sam Houston (San Antonio) defensive tackle Javonte Magee could make his college decision before national signing day. Magee is still favoring the Baylor Bears over the Texas A&M Aggies and the Missouri Tigers at this time, sources tell SBNation.com. Magee holds offers from Baylor, Texas, Texas A&M, Missouri, LSU and Michigan State, among others. Whether all those offers are still valid is difficult to determine, but Baylor, Missouri and Texas A&M are still pursuing him. Magee has visited all three schools.
Magee looked athletic at U.S. Army All-American Bowl practices, and came away with wins against some of the top offensive linemen in the country. Magee is 6'6" and 290 pounds. He is rated four-stars by the major recruiting services, and is widely considered one of the best 10 defensive tackles in the country.

Magee plays defensive end and tight end for his high school, which makes an evaluation at defensive tackle a bit difficult. His size and length is evident, and he moves very well. I would like to see how Magee does playing on the interior and taking on blocks from different directions, as opposed to always playing on the edge. Still, Magee is very effective at defensive end, and should be able to transition to the three-technique tackle spot with relative ease. He does seem to be more of a guy that is more fast than quick, which isn't always desirable in a defensive tackle. Offensive tackle could also be an option.
