Survive and advance. That’s the name of the game in the Texas state playoffs and that’s what Alief Hastings and four-star defensive end Alonzo Dotson are doing. With a win last week against Pearland, Dotson and his teammates have advanced to the state semifinals.
“I knew we’d make it,” Dotson, who is ranked as the nation’s No. 6 weakside defensive end and with four stars by Rivals100.com, said. “We now play Katy in the Dome. It’s all starting to come together for us.”
With that part of his life coming together, his recruitment will have to wait a few more weeks to sort itself out. He was originally going to take a visit to Colorado this upcoming weekend, but is now going to have to re-work that.
“The only thing that I have sort of set is Texas and Oklahoma for some time in January and then UCLA on December 13,” he said.
“But I’m hoping that I have to change that, too. That means we’re playing for state. I had a big sack last week and I’m going to have to step it up again this week if we’re going to do it.”
Dotson continues to maintain that he does not have a leader between Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, UCLA and Arkansas.
