Now that student athletes are back in school, colleges are starting to send invites for Junior Days, host early unofficial visits and even offering kids with the next classes of recruiting on their minds.
This week we will be looking at a few athletes who have picked up some big offers and what visits they have planned in the next couple of months...
Class of 2024, OL Koltin Sieracki, The Woodlands HS
This year The Woodlands High School had one of the best OL in the state with a weight AVG of 318.... thats better than most D1 programs. A huge part of that OL was Sophomore G Koltin Sieracki.
Sieracki at 6'3 305 is strong and nasty in the trenches with quickness to get out and lead block on power and screens. The Sophomore picked up offers from Baylor, SMU, Texas Tech, TCU and most recently Arkansas.
Talking with Sieracki about that first offer from Baylor he said "The call from Baylor was insane as it was my brother and I's first offer... we both went crazy! We were on the same call and got ours at the same time so it was a pretty cool experience".
The Woodlands O-Lineman told me as of right now he has built strong relationships with all the coaches that have offered him so far and is excited to keep building connections with more.
The Sophomore said he has some unofficial and junior days planned as well but is still figuring out dates for right now. Sieracki's recruitment is heating up and being one of the man protectors of one of the top QB's in the State Mabrey Mettauer he is bound to pick up a lot more offers in his Junior year.
Class of 2023, DL Samu Taumanupepe, Atascocita HS
Atascocita High School had a strong season last year making it to the state Quarterfinals. While many of the headlines featured 5 star OL Kam Dewberry, on the other side of the trenches DL Samu Taumanupepe was making a name for himself and his recruitment is heating up.
The 6'4 380lb Junior balled out this year receiving some small D1 offers from Texas State, Ball State, UCA and just recently received his first high major offer from Oregon.
When asked what is was like receiving that first high major offer from Oregon face to face on his Unofficial visit he said he was totally "surprised".
Talking with Samu I asked him what coaches he has made the best connections with so far and the two names he mentioned were Coach Tuioti at Oregon and Coach Robinson from Texas A&M.
The Junior DL has Unofficial visits and Junior days planned at Texas A&M, Texas, Florida, Houston, and UCA. Taumanupepe is primed for a big Senior season and expect him to pick up more offers this offseason.
Class of 2023, WR Jonah Wilson, Dekaney HS
Dekaney High School has struggled since winning the state championship in 2011 but has promise going into the 2022 season with star WR Jonah Wilson.
This past year the Junior WR balled out receiving offers from Texas A&M, UNT, LSU, UTSA, Houston, Pitt, Arkansas, Colorado, Baylor, Purdue, Kansas, PVAMU, Ohio State, and Texas.
Talking with Wilson about getting his first high major offer from Texas A&M he said "It was amazing. Getting my first offer feels like the things you worked so hard for are starting to pay off. My coaches told me it would happen but it’s still kind of surreal when it does".
I also asked Wilson about getting that Ohio State offer aka WRU, asking him what getting an offer like that meant to him and he said "Getting that offer was so humbling to the point had to really sit down. To get an offer from WRU is basically them believing i can be just as good or better than Garret Wilson, Chris Olave, Jaxon Smith-Njiba, or Marvin Harrison. That’s just like wow".
As of right now Wilson said he doesn't have any visits planned but said he would like to go up and visit Texas, Baylor, and Ohio State in the offseason. The junior also mentioned he has the best Connections with Coach Marion from Texas and Coach Kee from Ohio State.
Wilson is one of the top WR in the state if not the country and one should expect his offer list to increase going into his senior year.
Class of 2023, DE Ashton Porter, Cy-Ranch HS
This year Cy-Ranch finished second in the district playing good football but suffered a tough 1st round lost to Klein Oak. A big part of Cy Ranch's success this year was 4 star DE Ashton Porter.
The Junior is one of the top DE in the state with offers from Arizona State, Colorado, SMU, Texas, Michigan State, CAL, Baylor, Tennessee, PVAMU, Ole Miss, Indiana, Houston, Arizona, Washington State, Kansas, Nebraska, TSU, TCU, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Southern U, K-State, and Purdue.
When asked about getting the first offer from Arizona State Porter said "The call was great , I thought I was going to just talk to the coach and start building a relationship then they offered me".
The Junior has already attended junior days at Arkansas, Texas, Texas tech , and Baylor but plans on attending more throughout the offseason. So far Porter has made the strongest connections with the coaches from Texas, Baylor, Arkansas, ole miss, Nebraska, Arizona state to name a few.
With his senior year approaching expect big things from Ashton Porter as he will be one of the tope defensive prospects in the State of Texas.
Class of 2024, DJ Lagway Jr. , QB Willis HS
DJ Lagway Jr. has emerged as one of the top quarterbacks in the State of Texas and also the nation. As a young sophomore, Lagway led Willis HS to a playoff berth in his first year as a starter, accounting for 1,580 yards passing yards, 21 passing TDs and 71 rushing yards with 5 rushing TDs.
This year, the sophomore QB picked up offers from Baylor, Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Houston, Texas Tech, Arkansas, LSU, TCU, Buffalo, National Champions Georgia, and most recently North Carolina. When asked what it was like receiving his first offer from Baylor, his dad's alma mater, DJ said, "it was huge blessing to get that first offer from Baylor, and it felt amazing to get that call from Coach (Shawn) Bell , just showed how my hard work was actually paying off".
This past weekend, Lagway made a visit to College Station visiting Texas A&M. I asked Lagway what it was like talking to the staff and specifically Coach Fisher and he said, "I love talking to Coach Fisher. Every time we have conversations, I just learn new things about him and his coaching tactics".
Talking with DJ about what coaches he has built the best relationship so far, he said Baylor coach Shawn Bell, saying "he’s been here since the beginning of my recruitment, and we have a great relationship".
The Willis QB will be one of the top recruits coming out of the Houston area when its all said and done and will be a player to watch out for next year!
Class of 2023, Brad Spence, DE Klein Forest HS
Klein Forest football has struggled the past few years, but this year they have started to see some more success winning their first district game in four years. A big part of that was 4-star DE Brad Spence.
Though many people focus on the Kris Ross' and Harold Perkins' of the world, Spence is becoming one of the best defensive players in the state. The junior DE picked up offers from Colorado, Utah, Kansas, Tulsa, Texas, Buffalo, LA Tech, Cincinnati, Northwestern and SMU.
After talking with Spence about receiving that first offer, he said "getting my first offer was a relief for me and my family. I was excited". The young DE recruitment has started to heat up. This past weekend, he attended the Texas A&M Junior Day and has other Junior Days planned at Texas as well.
Some coaches Spence has been in the most contact with include coach Scruggs from Cincinnati, coach Choate from Texas, coach Scalley from Utah, and coach Ted Roof at Oklahoma.
Spence should be on everyone's radar leading up to his senior year and is primed for a great career at the next level.
Class of 2023, Nate Kibble, OL Atascocita HS
For the past five years, Atascocita HS has been a hot-spot for some of the top OLs in the nation, such as Kenyon Green and Kam Dewberry. The next guy up is Nate Kibble.
Kibble is 6-foot-3 280-pound OL who played tackle for the Eagles this year and earned first-team, all-district honors in a district with some big time talent at the OL position. The junior has received offers from Houston, UTSA, Texas State, Texas and most recently Memphis.
After asking Kibble about what it was like receiving that first offer from Houston, he said, "once I got that call, it was very exciting and I was surprised because being only a sophomore in high school and getting that DI offer made me a lot more confident when playing football. Knowing all of the time and effort I put into my position and the sport, I felt as though it is starting to pay off".
The junior doesn't have any Junior Days or unofficials planned at the moment, but Kibble was in College Station this previous weekend with lots of talented players along with him.
Kibble mentioned the coach he's made the most connection with so far has been, "Coach Jujuan, who was a OL coach for the Texans and is now at Houston". Kibble is primed for a big senior season and will be a recruit to keep an eye on in the offseason.
Class of 2023, Kaleb Black, WR/ATH Klein Oak HS
Though the season did not go as planned for the Panthers this year, there is a lot to look forward to in next season with Class of 2023 WR Kaleb Black.
Black is a game-changing athlete, who can play on both sides of the ball. This year as the Newcomer of the Year in the district, Black accounted for 787 yards receiving, 8 TDs and 1,011 all-purpose yards.
The junior has received offers from Kansas, Houston, Tulsa, Wisconsin, Marshall and Central Arkansas. The feeling of receiving that first offer from Kansas was, "great getting my first offer from a DI school. It was a great accomplishment for me", said Black.
Black plans on making an unofficial visit to Wisconsin in the near future and said he doesn't have any others planned but expects that to change. Some of the coaches who Black has had the best connection with so far, are the coaches from Tulsa, the coaches from UCA, and the coaches at Wisconsin.
