Tyler (Texas) Lee doesn’t shy away from anybody at all, which is a good thing if you want to test yourself as a Division I prospect. That’s the story for offensive guard Ciron Black, who is ranked as the No. 29 player in Texas by Rivals.com.
“We open the season up against Port Arthur Memorial, and we scrimmage DeSoto next Saturday at DeSoto,” Black said. “Coach (Mike) Owens put together a killer schedule. It’s crazy, but I see why he did it. We have to be ready for our district play.”
And as anybody that follows Texas football knows, Tyler Lee plays in one of the toughest districts in the state.
That competition has helped Black develop into one of the best linemen in Texas. With scholarship offers from big-time programs like LSU, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Houston, Texas Tech and several others, he’s starting to think more and more about what schools he’d visit.
“I’ve been thinking about OSU a little more,” he said. “I went up there a little while back, and I really liked their campus. I put them a little higher on my list after seeing their campus.”
Many figured Black would be an LSU lock since he’s listed the Tigers at the top of his list for quite some time, but obviously OSU is going to provide some competition for the Tigers.
Still it’s too early to count out others.
“If I had to pick the schools I’d visit today it would be LSU, Texas, Miami, Oklahoma State and probably Texas Tech,” he said. “I’ll start to set those up after September 1 when the coaches can call again.”
