Wal-mart is officially open for business.
La Marque, the superstore of high school athletes, has finally gotten things going on the recruiting front. The offers are starting to roll in.
Quarterback L.J. Castille has been offered Colorado State and UTEP, while receiver Jared Perry has been offered by Ole Miss, Colorado State, Houston and UTEP.
"We went up to Colorado State for a seminar on defense and brought some tape up to the coaches," La Marque coach Bryan Irwin said. "They watched the tape, typed up the offers and sent us home with them to give to some of the kids. They couldn't believe the tape on L.J."
Castille, (6-foot-4, 205-pounds) combines a big arm with untapped athletic potential and will be offered by schools nationally over the next few weeks.
"Texas A&M is flying in this week and Texas will be here also," Irwin said. "Coach (Art) Briles will be here personally to look at L.J. this week also. If a school is not on him now, they are going to miss the boat. Coaches who have seen him say he's the best looking quarterback they have seen this year."
