Kansas City (Mo.) North Kansas City teammates Jayson Palmgren and Stephen Franklin are on the verge of great things.
Both players already have some impressive scholarships on their resume. But with the spring evaluation period right around the corner don't be surprised if you see more and more teams come in and offer the two stars.
"Stephen was offered by K-State a little while back, Stephen and Jayson are both going to Iowa's Ultra junior day next Friday," North Kansas City coach Chad Valadez said.
"They're going to hit a few combines and then also be at the NIKE Training Camp at Ohio State on May 5th."
Franklin's lone offer is from K-State, but teams like Clemson, Kansas, Missouri and several other Big 12 programs are showing interest.
He's a 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete that could project at several positions on the next level.
"He's got great vision and a college-body right now," Valadez said.
"The frame that he has, along with the ability to build will allow him to carry 225 pounds in the college level. He'll be able to that and keep his ability and quickness in space."
Palmgren, a 6-foot-4, 285-pound offensive guard, is the more heavily recruited prospect at this point. He has offers from Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri on his resume.
Other programs like Iowa, Clemson, Notre Dame and Wisconsin are showing heavy interest and most are expected to visit North Kansas City during the spring evaluation period.
