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.

It sure seems to be heading that way. Make sure you check out the video above as we reveal just how bad things really are, what can be done to fix the problems, and what it will take to get the attention of the Texans and force them to make some changes. Finally, stick around until the end of the video to find out what makes our host walk off the set.
