Houston OL receives first offers

The Woodlands (Texas) College Park High School's Eli Dickerson is starting to get some recruiting traction this spring.
The 6-foot-7 offensive tackle had several college scouts on hand watching his athletic period practice Monday.
He currently holds offers from Stanford, Houston and UTEP, while Texas A&M is showing sincere interest.
"He's got a good frame, but what sets him apart is the way he moves," coach Richard Carson said. "He's not afraid to get on the ground and pop up to finish plays. You don't see his athletic ability in a kid his size."
Dickerson will be hitting college campuses this summer and plans on making a verbal commitment by the beginning of the season.
"I know I'm going to Stanford this summer," he said. "I really like their campus and coaches. They are a really up-and-coming program.
He is also interested in Colorado State and Iowa State, who have been showing interest.
"I've been doing a lot of research on Iowa State and want to take an unofficial up there too," he said.
For now, the Dickerson-show will be on display in north Houston, and he's receiving rave reviews.
