Originally Appeared on Vype
As the page turns on the recruiting class of 2019 with National Signing Days come and gone, college coaches around the country quickly shift their focus to the next.
On the February National Signing Day and the days after, an influx of offers to the Class of 2020 begin to roll out.
MacArthur's Joshua Eaton got caught up in the midst of that. Eaton, in the month of February alone, received 18 offers, according to his Twitter account. He had an official count of 20offers by February 28
"I've been taking everything real slow," Eaton said. "It's a lot of media every day. I just give all the glory to God and thank him for everything he's given me."
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound cornerback is the 35th-rated player at his position in the country, according to 24/7. Eaton is one of two corners from the city of Houston ranked in the Top 50.
Heading into the offseason for football, the three-star prospect, said he is working on getting stronger in his stance and trusting his instincts.
Part of working on the football side of things, Eaton will be playing with Fast Houston this spring and summer, as well as improving with his work on the track.
"Track is going to help me a lot," Eaton said. "It's going to help me get faster, so I can break on the ball a little faster and be explosive."
With all the offers and attention focused on Eaton, this will naturally bring high-profile recruiters on campus.
This excites the junior because he knows he isn't the only diamond in the rough at Big Mac.
"They can see the other guys we have around here because MacArthur has a lot of guys," Eaton said. "I'm not the only one. I want my team to get some praise too because this year's going to be a great season."
