Recruiting heats up at Ocean Lakes

Things are heating up at Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes. Head coach Chris Scott gave the latest on his prospects and what is next for them in the near future.
"I just got a call from Michigan who is extremely interested in Reginald Owens," he said. "That was good news and he was excited about that.
"I know Duke is really interested in Reggie's quickness and size. He's touching right at 6-feet, 185-pounds. His interest is going to come. He's going to be a guy that hits the circuit and they see his frame they'll look more. Michigan wants him to come up for their prospect day on June 5th."
Meanwhile, both of his linemen, Chaz Lowery and Josh Mann are picking up as well.
"Josh has taken a couple visits recently to William & Mary and Old Dominion," he said. "He plans to go to Penn State, Virginia Tech and North Carolina for spring games in the near future.
"Josh has put on some great weight in the last month and a half and is up to 6-foot-3, 281-pounds."
For Chaz Lowery, he's taken a couple other visits.
"He went on a junior day to Virginia and is a guy that's going to end up on a lot of people's boards from Duke to Yale," he said. "He was invited up to Boston College's junior day.
"Virginia Tech's coaches think he's definitely a guy and if it was a different year they may be closer to offering."
A name that is starting to emerge is a bit of a sleeper, 5-foot-11, 212-pound linebacker Lamar Neal.
"He has blown up," he said. "I've had coaches walk in and ask who he is. Colleges including Old Dominion, Virginia Tech and Tennessee want to see him more. It'll depend how well he runs, but he's going to be a tremendous sleeper and one to watch out for."
