Houston Madison High School has been known for producing talent for decades under the direction of legendary coach Ray Seals.
This year is no different.
Forced to play out of position as a junior, running back Jeffery Lewis has been a hot name around recruiting circles. Lewis rushed for nearly 900 yards and had 10 touchdowns for the Marlins, who went three games deep in the playoffs.
"Lewis has great moves and he's very explosive," Seals said. "He can make people miss in the open field but is also very natural on defense. He's a versatile guy, who has really impressed some people with his senior highlights."
Lewis has taken visits to Abilene Christian and West Texas, but the University of Houston is closing in.
"I think they are going to bring him in on a visit and offer him," Seals said. "They like him as a return guy and cornerback."
Quarterback Broderick Thomas Jr. is also being looked at by several schools. Thomas rushed for 890 yards and 19 touchdowns and threw for 750 yards and eight touchdowns. Thomas is awaiting a test score to become academically qualified.
"I'm not really sure where people stand on Broderick, but coaches like his athleticism," Seals said
