Fort Bend (Texas) Hightower High School has plenty of wide receiver talent. If not the best, they are one of the fastest groups.
"People laugh because they thing surely we can't have three Division I receivers," Hightower coach Gene Johnson said. "I wouldn't mind being A.J. (Highsmith) right now."
Junior quarterback A.J. Highsmith is blessed with receivers Isiah Sweeney, Clyde Lee and Anthony Ledet which gives defensive coaches plenty to plan against.
Tracksters Sweeney and Lee are members of the national-record-holding 4X200 relay team, and will participate in AAU track this summer. They hold the record at 123.92 seconds.
"Coaches love their speed, and their success on the track has really helped them in recruiting," Johnson said.
Sweeney has been offered by Northwestern, Houston, TCU and Boston College, while Lee has been offered by Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Lafayette and McNeese State.
"I'm just going to research this and make the best decision for me," Lee said. "Oklahoma State and Boston College are getting close I think."
Hightower's leading returning receiver is Ledet (5-foot-11, 180-pounds), who has been offered by Louisiana-Lafayette.
"He could be the best one, but the other guys are getting the attention for their speed," Johnson said. "He's a great possession receiver and is good after the catch."
