Crockett looking for first offer

Southlake Carroll is looking to make another state championship run in 2012. Cornerback Ray Crockett will be looked upon to help them do just that.

Southlake (TX) Carroll high school sends players to the next level every year. The Dragons boast one of the top quarterbacks in the country in 2013 prospect Kenny Hill, who has already verbally committed to Texas A&M.

Another prospect who expects to garner offers is cornerback Ray Crockett Jr. Football is in his blood; his father Ray played at Baylor and was an all-pro for the Denver Broncos during their back-to-back Super Bowl titles.

The younger Crockett didn't get many touches in Southlake's run to the 2011 class 5A state championship, but the 6-foot, 165-pounder will be looked upon as a heavy contributor in 2012 as the Dragons hope for a repeat performance.

Although he doesn't hold an offer to date, several schools are keeping a close eye on the rising prospect.

"Right now I'm hearing from Arizona State a lot, Nebraska, Missouri, A&M, Baylor and Tulsa," Crockett said. "I've been up to TCU and talk to them a lot and talk to Texas Tech here and there."

Crockett says he's currently setting up camp visits for the summer and at the moment he only has firm plans to visit his father's alma mater.

"I'm going to Baylor's camp, Tulsa wanted me to come to their camp too," he said. "I really haven't planned it out as much but I've been invited to a lot."

Despite the fact that he doesn't hold an offer yet, some schools have expressed an interest in extending one. One of those schools is TCU, which Crockett visited for a junior day earlier this year.

"TCU was talking about it the most but that was when I visited them for a junior day," he said. "That was a couple of months ago. I've talked to Coach P every once in a while (Facebook), but it hasn't been that much lately."

Does he plan to camp at TCU?

"I plan to, it's local and close and more convenient so I'll probably do that," Crockett said of attending TCU's camp.

At the moment Crockett says a couple of teams are standing out above the others; and for obvious reasons.

"I feel like I have to like Baylor since I'm in the household," he said. "A&M too because that's all I hear because of Sabian (Holmes) and Kenny (Hill); they come to my school all the time and I visited up there frequently and went to their spring game. I've been talking to them a lot lately."

Crockett helped the Dragons earn a bid to the state 7-on-7 tournament after advancing to the championship game at the Colleyville SQT.
