With several Division I prospects leaving Corsicana, Texas for the next phase of their career in the last several seasons, the 2008 class looks to be led by a dynamite offensive prospect – wide receiver Omarius Hines.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder is starting his first year on varsity as a junior and he's had around 400 yards and five touchdowns receiving. So far, two Big 12 schools are making the biggest push with mail and an offer may be around the corner.
"Oklahoma State and Texas Tech send me a lot of mail," Hines said. "If I had to guess, I'd say OSU may be the first to offer since they send the most. I don't have a favorite yet though – I'm kind of open right now."
Hines says that as a receiver, he makes "big plays and if the ball is thrown to me, I'll go up and get it."
"I'm a play maker and I just get things done," Hines said.
As a junior, Hines says his top goal is to win state and also excel in the classroom. He also wants to help his team get back on track after an 0-3 start.
"We'll be able to shake this off and get back on our feet," he said. "We're working hard to do well again. I'd like to win state and I'll do anything to get us there."
