Rain couldn't keep over 130 Houston-area athletes away from Delmar Stadium, the site of Oklahoma State's one-day camp.
The Cowboys have had tremendous success recruiting the Houston-area and their camps are a big reason that they sign so many kids from the area.
Houstonians and Oklahoma State Cowboys Bobby Reid and Andre Sexton dropped by the camp to see the future of Houston recruiting.
The camp hosted several of Houston's top prospects including, Marcus Mendoza of Spring Woods, Ahmad Jones of Silsbee, Zac Scotten of Cypress Creek, Michael Dugat of Dayton, Billy Chavis of Beaumont Westbrook, Harold Turnage of Chavez, Detron Lewis of A&M Consolidated, Quentin Castille of La Porte and Rex McDougald of Iola, just to name a few.
"It was great camp and I really liked getting to meet some of the coaches," Chavis said. "They are definitely in my top five schools right now."
While the Class of 2007 was impressive, some underclassmen made some impressive appearances.
The most impressive sophomore was Eisenhower's Craig Loston, a 6-2, 180-pound safety. While Loston is three years away from making a college decision, he has been a major scoop in recruiting circles. Loston was a first-team, all-district selection and Eisenhower's leading tackler as a freshman.
"It's early, but I like Florida State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Ohio State," he said. "I've got some time though. I've seen a lot of college coaches ask about me though during the spring."
The star of the camp was junior quarterback Andrew Luck, the son of former Houston Oilers quarterback Oliver Luck. The 6-3, 200-pounder has impeccable footwork and an arm with incredible strength and accuracy.
The Stratford quarterback threw for 1,529 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore and could be the areas best quarterback prospect in 2008.
"I had an decent year last year," he said. "I'm looking to really improve this summer to get ready for the fall. I haven't even thought about recruiting yet."
Other impressive juniors included Damien Square of Yates and Derrick Hall of Beaumont Central.
