Before the season, Converse (Texas) Judson safety Tre Flowers listed a top five of Arizona State, Kansas State, Boise State, BYU, and Oklahoma State. The 6-3, 180-pound three-star safety wants to be clear though that he has not eliminated anyone and continues to communicate with and keep a watchful eye on the likes of Colorado State, Tulsa, and Wake Forest as well.
While he has not made any cuts to his list there are a few schools standing out.
"Three in my top five are kind of at the top right now - Arizona State, BYU, and Boise State," Flowers said.
Each of his three top programs brings a little something to the table.
"BYU, I went down there (in the spring), so I actually have a feel for how what it would be like," Flowers said. "Arizona State, I watched them play Missouri and I like the way they play. And my uncle (Erik Flowers) actually played there, so I know a little bit about them. Boise State, they're a really good program and win a lot and I've always like them."
He is not in a hurry to narrow his list and does not have a definite timetable for a decision, but he does have a few visits coming up in the near future.
"I'm actually setting up my visit with Boise St. and I've set up my visit with Arizona State," Flowers said.
His official visit to Arizona State is set for October 27 when the Sun Devils host UCLA, and right now he is still ironing out the details with Boise State.
"I believe its November 3 and 4," Flowers said. "It's not squared away 100-percent yet, but we have the dates and everything."
Flowers also plans to visit BYU and mentioned possibly setting up a visit for Kansas State. He did not know who would get his fifth and final visit at this time.
While Flowers plans to take his time with the recruiting process, he does know what he will be looking for in his future destination.
"School comes first, so I want them to have my major," Flowers said. "And I want to play. I don't necessarily have to play my freshman year, but I don't want to be behind a lot of people. I want to be able to fight for my spot fairly early."
