Two of Houston's top 2010 prospects have recently been offered by one of top BCS schools in the region.
The Oklahoma Sooners offered The Woodlands offensive lineman Chad Lindsay and Alief Taylor defensive tackle DeAires Cotton.
"Oklahoma is one of Chad's top schools," father Duff Lindsay said. "They have a great program that dates way back."
Lindsay will be unofficially visiting LSU next weekend for the Tigers' game against Alabama, but no decision is close.
"He will probably narrow his choices after the spring," he said.
For now, Lindsay will be anchoring one of the state's top teams and will be going head-up against Lufkin's Jamarkus McFarland this weekend.
Cotton anchors Taylor's defensive line and holds offers from Oklahoma and Nebraska.
"He's a run-stuffer," coach Trevor White said. "He's very good with his hands for a kid his size. He likes the two schools that have offered him and LSU, Texas and Texas A&M."
Also emerging at Alief Taylor is junior tackle Jonte' Berry, a 6-foot-5, 285-pound road-grader.
"Jonte' is just destroying people," he said. "He's going to have offers after the spring."
Lamar University has officially offered Lion linebacker Jessie Dickson and SMU is nearing. Quarterback Rodney Owens plays quarterback for Alief Taylor but is a sleeper safety prospect. SMU and Arizona are also recruiting Owens.
