Some of the city of Houston's top prospects are taking in camps and winding down their recruiting process, while other sleeper prospects are ramping up.
Rivals100 offensive tackle and Ohio State commit J.B. Shugarts attended camp in Columbus and worked out with the Buckeyes' strength and conditioning coaches.
"It was tough up there," Shugarts said. "They really put you through a workout at those camps. I'm totally solid and we had a good time up there."
Shugarts' teammate John Youboty also impressed at the Ohio State camp. While he has an offer from Missouri, several other schools are hotly pursuing the defensive end.
"Marshall, Akron and Ole Miss are getting close to offering," Youboty said. "I had a good camp up there and I think that's going to help my recruiting."
Klein kicker Randy Bullock went up to TCU last week after getting offered by the Horned Frogs a month ago. He will also be attending LSU's camp in late July.
"TCU was real nice and I have a good relationship with the special teams coach up there," he said. "They showed me around the facilities and then we went back to the coaches' office."
The nation's top all-purpose back Sam McGuffie will be visiting Michigan's campus this weekend.
"I'm going up to see some family and I'm going to visit the campus," he said. "I have to see the Big House. I still like Florida, USC, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State, but I have to get up to see Michigan."
McGuffie received his ACT test scores this week and is academically eligible.
"I'm glad that is out of the way," he said. "I'm happy with my score and it's a weight off my shoulders."
Aldine offensive lineman Daniel Campbell impressed last week at USC's camp and was joined by 2009 prospect Marcus Davis of Clear Creek.
"That camp was tight," Davis said. "The camp had a lot of competition and I thought I did pretty well. Right now I'm favoring LSU, USC, OU and Texas."
In other notes, Klein Forest defensive end Kendrick Payne picked up an offer from Fresno State. SMU has also offered a pair of Houston-area prospects in Waller's David Hunter and Sterling's Ronnie Williams.
"I went to SMU's campus and really liked it," Hunter said. "The coaches showed me around campus and gave me some good instruction. I think Rice and Boise State may offer over the next few weeks."
