Prevot has trio of offers

Houston (Texas) Alief Taylor has seen plenty of recruiters through its doors as of late with junior safety Jonathan Wiggins and sophomore cornerback Chris Hardeman being focal points. However, it is defensive end Torrodney Prevot that seems to be drawing the most interest.
Last week the 6-foot-4, 220-pound junior received his first offer from LSU. In the past few days, though, Prevot has tripled that total.
"I have offers now from LSU, Texas A&M and Utah," Prevot said on Tuesday evening. "Utah offered me on Sunday and A&M offered me today. I really hadn't been talking to either school to be honest. This was like my first contact with them and it was really cool."
Prevot was likely going to be offered at the Texas A&M junior day this weekend but the Aggie coaches pushed up the timetable a bit.
"I talked to coach (Clarence) McKinney from A&M today," he said. "He was really cool. He wanted to offer me since I wasn't going to be able to go the junior day this weekend since I have a track meet."
Prevot thinks another in-state school could be close to offering as well.
"I think Texas might be next (to offer), he said. "Coach (Manny) Diaz and coach (Oscar) Giles came to my school a little while ago. They said they're going to keep looking at me."
Prevot runs the 200 meters in track and his quickness is something colleges covet. There is a chance he could move to linebacker in college but he says every school is recruiting him for the line at the moment.
"Most people are looking at me as an end," he said. "At first, under the old staff, A&M was looking at me to play linebacker. Now, with the new coaches running the 4-3, they're looking at me as an end too."
With all the newfound attention, Prevot says there is no way he can name a favorite or even a top group of schools.
"I really don't know. There's just so much happening so fast," he said laughing. "I can't tell you - it hurts my head to even think about it."
Prevot was an all-district selection as a junior after posting 53 tackles, including 18 for loss, and 12 sacks.
