In April, Sewell announced Texas A&M, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Clemson as finalists and made an official visit to Clemson in early June.
Permian’s offensive style gives Sewell much needed experience in the run game. According to ESPN, Sewell is the 65th ranked overall prospect in the 2023 class.
Clemson has claimed 2 offensive linemen from Texas. In addition to Sewell, Ian Reed (6’6”, 308 lbs.) from Vandegrift High School in the Austin area, also committed to play for the Dabo Swinney and the Tigers.
Permian will play San Angelo Central on October 28, 2022 in San Angelo.
