Apparently top running back Shawnbrey McNeal is not the only prospect gaining Division I interest at Dallas (Texas) Madison High School.
Madison coach Ronald Johnson says that his cornerback Larry Johnson is the next player to garner interest from several schools. Oklahoma State and Nebraska are the latest two to inquire about the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder.
"Larry is a good cover corner type of player," Coach Johnson said. "He's got great skills, great speed, great hands, and great quickness. He's a guy who will run a consistent 4.41-second 40-yard dash.
"He doesn't have any offers yet, but there have been several schools that are pretty high on him."
Johnson's work on the track team hasn't hurt either. The defender runs several events on the Madison squad.
While Johnson is getting the attention now, it's sophomore-to-be Steve Richard who could be one of the biggest to come out of Madison in sometime.
"He's a 2008 kid who's already 6-foot-4, 265 pounds and plays defensive tackle for us," Coach Johnson said. "His uncle played for TCU, so he's got the bloodlines. He's just a big kid already that's still going to get bigger."
Coach Johnson mentioned that 2007 running back McNeal continues to pick up offers and just won a track event out-of-state. He's going to wait on a decision and not do that early.
