Addison Says "Nothing Has Changed"

Fort Bend Hightower stellar athlete Bralon Addison is the desire of a lot of college football coaching staffs and a lot of college football fans, but he is pledged to Texas A&M. He told us Sunday that nothing has changed.

"Nothing has changed," said Addison. "I'm committed to Texas A&M and I've been to two games. I saw the SMU game and I also was at the Oklahoma State game. Really, I haven't heard from many schools. It slowed down when I made my commitment. I still get stuff in the mail from some schools. I still get the stuff Nebraska sends out every week. That's about it."

Yesterday, Addison wasn't able to pay a lot of attention to college football as Hightower had a challenging game on their hands last night in a 21-14 win over Fort Bend Elkins. Addison, who said he is pretty much staying at quarterback this high school season ran for a 24-yard touchdown, his sixth of the season to tie the game at 7-7 in the second quarter. He then gave Hightower the lead when he hit Donald Weathersby for a 15-yard touchdown pass. On the season, Addison, who likely will play running back or wide receiver in college, had run for 481-yards and six touchdowns on 62 carries. He is averaging 7.8-yards a carry. He has completed 71-of-119 passing for 1,161-yards and 10 touchdowns with just three interceptions.

"It's going pretty good right now," said the 5-10, 187 pound speedster. "We started off slow and lost the first two games. It was one of those deals where the offense would play well and the defense would struggle and then the offense would struggle and the defense would play well. We just started working and making progress and now things are really kind of coming around."

Addison and his Hightower teammates will be back in action this next Friday in another area rivalry as Hightower will take on Fort Bend Willowridge.
