San Antonio (Texas) Roosevelt defensive back Arrion Springs burst on the scene with a phenomenal spring and summer on the camp and combine circuit. After recording 70 tackles, an INT, and all-area honors in 2011, Springs clocked in the 4.4-range in the forty and 30-inch vertical leap.
In 2012, Springs is already off to a quick start, and Roosevelt is sitting pretty with a 3-0 record.
"The season started off pretty good," Springs said. "The first game I had a couple of tackles and the second game was my best so far. I had a fumble recovery for a touchdown, a blocked field goal, and two big hits. For this game they're moving me to corner so I'll get to show my skills at corner."

Recruiting is also going pretty well.
"I've been hearing a lot from Oregon and a little bit from Florida and a lot from Oklahoma State," Springs said. "It's mainly been a lot of Oregon and Oklahoma State and Arizona State."
Springs put in a lot of work and attracted a lot of attention working at both safety and cornerback. Then this summer he was rewarded by Texas Tech with his first scholarship offer.
"It was really humbling and a load off of my shoulders," Springs said.
Springs has made no secret of the fact he grew up a USC fan and the Trojans have been high on his list. They are still high but another Pac-12 program currently sitting at the top of his list.
"My favorite is Oregon No. 1, and Florida," Springs said.
He does not have any visits scheduled at this point, but he does plan to take an unofficial visit to Oregon in November.
