Midlands Uncommitted…(Part I)

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. In this feature, we highlight a number of available Midlands players looking to get more offers, interests and visits…

For the players listed below, things could really take off before National Signing Day 2013. But for now, these guys are still working to see how much more activity they will have in their recruiting until then….

LB D.J. Green – Mesquite Horn
After the mutual split between he and Baylor, Green is back on the scene looking for a place to land. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Green has SMU is interested, along with Navy, Colorado and Rice

Emmit Raleigh – Westfield 
He was the workhorse for a team that went three rounds deep into the playoffs. Just recently, Raleigh made a commitment to HBU, but he said that he is still open in the process to see if anything else transpires. 

OL Matt Griffin – Denton Ryan
Last summer it looked like Griffin was in a good place with SMU, but since some of his contacts have moved throughout the country he is nearly back to square one. The 6-foot-3, 290-pound Griffin has made his way to a few Arkansas games, but a Division II program in Abilene Christian is the one showing the most interest. Louisiana Tech, Stanford and ULM are also keeping some contact.

DT Cornelius Henderson – Duncanville
He brings a lot to the table, but Henderson is still waiting to see if a BCS level offer is in his future. FCS-level programs like Arkansas State, Alabama State and Central Arkansas have offered, but the 6-foot-2, 290-pound Henderson would love to see if TCU will come through. He has already visited UT-San Antonio. Alabama State is next up. 

RB Jericho Worrell – Houston (TX) Eisenhower 

He was able to show off his versatility this season, but to date Worrell has only a few offers. HBU and a number of junior colleges have been in communication.
