SOUTHLAKE, Texas - Louisiana Tech Head Coach Sonny Dykes wants to surround his young quarterback with talent.
Skill position players are a plenty for the Bulldogs and Dykes wants a 2012 recruiting class that has some young talented offensive lineman.
Say hello to James Prince.
The 6-6, 268-pound offensive tackle out of powerhouse South Lake Carroll is a three-star prospect according to the latest Rivals.com rankings. To-date Prince has scholarship offers on the table from Houston, Marshall, Memphis, New Mexico, Oregon State, Purdue and Louisiana Tech.
"Honestly for me right now I'm not really worried about the recruiting process," Prince said. "I am so committed to helping my team win a state championship right now and am doing everything that is needed to try and make that happen.
"I'm still hearing from schools and stuff but I think that they have also realized how important we here (at Southlake Carroll) take our football and they are getting the message. The recruiting process for me will be there. It is really going to have just wait for a while."
When it does come to schools that he is liking and favoring, Prince said the list is very small.
"Purdue is my favorite right now," Prince said. "I like them and am looking forward to making a visit up there. Louisiana Tech is also high on my list. They are close to home and they are doing some good things over there.
"I'm going to make some visits but that is going to happen after my season is over. Purdue and (Louisiana) Tech are two schools that I want to visit. I would have loved to be able to do that for a game, but schedules just don't fit up. So I'm going to make all my visits after my senior football season is over and them hopefully soon after that I will make that commitment decision. It's important and I hopefully will have a decision before Signing Day."
