If you can play, college coaches will find you.
It doesn't hurt if you are 6-foot-4, 300-pounds either.
Remington Strickland was offered in the ninth grade when he was at Logos Prep.
"I was definitely shocked when I was offered by Texas State in the ninth grade," he said. "I'll never forget it. I didn't know they you could get offered as a freshman. It really opened our eyes to the recruiting process."
The junior moved to anchor Fort Bend Christian Academy's offensive line a year ago, and is now under the tutelage of coach Jordan Black, the Eagles' first-year head coach and long-time NFL vet.
"The culture is so different here with coach Black," he said. "He is showing me things about the game that I would have never learned had he not been my coach. The offseason we went through has made me so much stronger and more athletic."
The two-year starter at FBCA has yet to give up a sack on his side of the ball, ever. Scary thing is that he's just learning the position.
