New Arkansas State Head Football Coach Hugh Freeze is taking a regional approach to recruiting.
AStateNation.com caught up with another Texas prospect that recently took a trip to Jonesboro to get an up close look at the Red Wolf Football program.
Argyle linebacker Carlston Bossow apparently was impressed with his visit and camp at Arkansas State last month.
"It was really nice there," Bossow said. "I loved the size of the town, the stadium and campus was great. They really have better facilities than I expected."
Bossow, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound middle linebacker, led his Argyle HS team last year with 102 tackles, three interceptions and six sacks.
Camping at Arkansas State allowed the Texas linebacker to get an opportunity to see how he would be coached at his position.
"My recruiting coach Tom Allen is also my position coach, he is a great guy and a great coach," Bossow said. "He really gets fired up and is very energetic."
Bossow was surprised by his first offer being from Arkansas State.
"I got called to my coaches office and he said that the Arkansas State coaches loved my highlight tape and was going to offer me," Bossow said. "To get that first offer means a lot."
Bossow was also impressed with the fact that the Red Wolves new Head Coach Hugh Freeze knew who he was when arrived on campus.
"They treated me and my twin brother very well," Bossow said. "Coach Freeze came up and spoke to me right away."
Bossow twin brother Chad is also a recruiting target for ASU. He plays tight end for his high school team.
Could Bossow see himself being a Red Wolf?
Bossow plans on making a decision either before his senior season or after the first three or four ball games. He is unsure of exact time.
