Carrier close to committing

Houston (Texas) Worthing athlete Tyrone Carrier is a one-man team.
The Colts graduated Texas Longhorn Roy Watts and Southern University lineman Erik Smith off of last year's team, and are forced to rebuild after making the playoffs.
"Our class from last year is gone and Tyrone is left to teach the winning ways to some of these young kids," Worthing coach Eddie Snow said. "He's such a great kid and leader. He's a tremendous football player who will get heavily recruited late in the process."

Carrier (5-9, 185-pounds) is a wowwing opponents with his speed and ability to catch anything thrown his way.
"It's amazing what he can do on the football field," Westbury coach Scott Joseph said. "He's fast but he came up with some balls that our kids punished him on. I couldn't believe some of the plays he pulled off. He's a Division I kid."
The University of Houston has offered Carrier in football, while Texas Tech has offered him in track. Indiana and Florida are also showing interest in the dual-sport athlete.
"Houston has been showing the most interest, but my family wants me to wait and see what else comes up," Carrier said.
Off the football field, Carrier has won three gold medals for the Worthing track squad in the state meet. Last year he won the 200-meters.
"All around, he's one of the best athletes in the country," Snow said.
