RECRUIT SCOOP: 6 Hot Houston Names In Recruiting Circles
Originally appeared on VYPE
Recruiting is year-round and things are hot in Houston.
No surprise, right?
Several of the city's top targets are locked up, having verbally committed already. Sure, there will be movement, but here are five prospects getting some serious attention.
Kyron Drones, Shadow Creek QB
Things were quiet for the QB… until winning the state championship. He's popped 15 offers since the beginning of 2020 and things aren't slowing down. TCU has been the most recent to offer. Other recents have included Ole Miss, Auburn, Northwestern, North Texas, Arkansas, Missouri and the list goes on. He's a legit 6-foot-2 coach's son, who is a dual-threat with a great football IQ. Checking many boxes.
LJ Johnson, Cy-Fair, RB
Even though Cy-Fair coach Ed Pustejovsky has retired, new coach Jeff Miller has to be thrilled to have super-back LJ Johnson back in the huddle. Johnson is checking out Baylor and Stanford next and has 38 offers to date. He can go anywhere in the country. He's an LSU legacy (Jonathan Johnson) as his dad played for the Tigers. I've also spotted him wearing a Texas A&M band bracelet. It's too early to tell where he will go, but he's a catch at 5-10, 204-pounds. He's a #BeastMode sort of back with NFL potential.
