Missouri City (Texas) Hightower receiver Isiah Sweeney exploded onto the recruiting scene this spring after helping the Hurricane track team set the national record in the 4x200-yard relay.
College coaches came in droves to the Houston suburb of Missouri City to see if Sweeney's track speed translated to the football field.
His speed did translate and the 5-foot-10, 170-pound speedster currently holds offers from Boston College, Houston, Northwestern, Fresno State and TCU.

"I'm not ready to pull the trigger, but I really like Houston," he said. "They are my No. 1, and I like the fact that I could play football and run track. I love how their offense showcases receivers and track coach Leroy Burrell."
Sweeney, who caught 17 balls for 498 yards last season, just returned from the Czech Republic where he competed on USA World Youth Team.
"We won 14 gold medals as a team and we won gold in for the sprint relays," he said. "We set a world record in one of the relays. It was great experience but we stayed close to the stadium. We didn't get to do much sight-seeing."
He will be traveling to California with his teammate Clyde Lee to compete in the Junior Olympics in early August.
