According to Scurry (Texas) Rosser coach Virgil Crow, the key for his players like athlete D'Marcus Lang is to stay focused on the task at hand. Though his 6-foot-3, 200-pound star player has had quite the recruiting process so far, he is trying to make sure that they look towards the playoffs first.
Lang, a three-star rated prospect and the No. 47 rated athlete in the country, has no problem with that. He has one official visit set up to Iowa State on Dec. 9, but other than that, he is taking things slow. His coach hinted at the fact that when he does get more heavily focused on recruiting, it may be tough to beat the Cyclones for Lang.
"I'm thinking he's leaning real heavily towards Iowa State," Crow said about Lang. "Talking to him, you can tell they they've said the things to him that he needed to here. Coach Tony Alford has just done a great job with him."
"I think he may take a few other trips, but that may be just to compare it to something."
As for a decision, Crow believes that his players have other things on their plate that take precedence.
"I sat down and visited with him before we started making this run and it was really their idea to put recruiting on the backburner," Crow said. "He said that he wanted to take care of our business and that stuff will take care of itself."
Lang is rated as the No. 79 prospect in the state of Texas.
