Houston's Klein Forest High School has three talented 2010 prospects who are flying under the recruiting radar.
Offensive lineman Zach Bolton was an all-district selection last year as the Golden Eagles' anchor on the offensive line. The 6-foot-4 Bolton received his first two offers from Missouri and Rice University.
"Zach will get several offers and he's wide open," coach Kenny Hammock said. "He's a big-time athlete with great feet. He's one of the better lineman we've had come through here."

Kansas University recently offered safety Damion Payne, who led the area in interceptions last year. Payne's brother plays at the University of California and his former teammate Jonathan Wilson stars at receiver for the Jayhawks.
"He has Division I genes and the talent to go with it," Hammock said. "He's big and physical enough to play anywhere at the next level. He's only getting better."
Linebacker Cameron Nwosu was a punishing defender last season in a tough district. While he stands under 6-feet tall, he's explosive enough to be a Division I middle linebacker.
"Cameron was offered by Rice and that could be a great fit for him," Hammock said. "He's a great student and could fit into their system well."
Klein Forest also welcomes safety Adrian Bennett, who has transferred from DeKaney High School.
"He'll get offered in the spring when coaches find out he's here," Hammock said. "He's a bona fide big safety that can patrol the field."
