Sitting behind a table, Eddie Lampkin got emotional.
In front of him were five bags. Each with a school the four-star recruit was considering as his next stop after his playing days at Morton Ranch High School are over. On the bags were TCU, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Seton Hall and WKU logos.
While wiping tears away from his eyes, Lampkin unzipped his black jacket to reveal a TCU t-shirt, while his parents pulled off their sweaters and jackets to reveal the same. Lampkin pulled on a purple TCU hat and threw up the hand signal for the Horned Frogs, officially pledging his talents to TCU.
"When my brother and I started out, everybody doubted us," Lampkin said while wiping tears away. "We just wanted to show them that we could do it."
Lampkin's teammate LJ Cryer verballed to Baylor University earlier this summer, making Morton Ranch one of the most talent-rich boys basketball teams in Houston heading into the 2019 season.
With Thursday games shifted to Saturday mornings, Friday was really the first day of the weekend of Texas high school football in the Houston area.
The skies cleared, for the most part, some parts of the city having to deal with lightning delays early on but everyone ended up getting their games in. The biggest of the night was No. 5 Manvel upending No. 1 Fort Bend Marshall 38-34. It was the Buffs first regular season loss since October 14, 2017.
So, what were the other finals from around the city? Check them out.
