Hart Gets First Jr. Day Invites

Dallas First Baptist receiver Trae Hart says he has received his first two junior day invites, and he also explains what he must improve on this offseason.

First Baptist (Dallas, TX) wide receiver Trae Hart has received his first two junior day invites.

The 5'11 junior wide out has been invited to a junior day at SMU and Rice.

"Rice and SMU are the only ones so far, but I think I am going to get some more," Hart said.

Rice, SMU, Cincinnati, and Baylor are the main schools that Hart has heard from thus far.

"Cincinnati messaged me on Facebook recently and told me to send them some new highlights and things, and SMU has been letting me know that they're interested and want me to get out to that junior day."

Hart also said that Cincinnati (under their previous head coach Butch Jones, now at Tennessee) invited him to one of their games, but "I couldn't make it."

Hart also explained that this offseason he is working on adding upper body strength to go with his speed.

So far this offseason, Hart has been working with Dallas-area skills coach David Robinson who said that Hart ran a 4.38 last week in the 40-yard dash.

"He is getting me stronger. Every single day during the week we are hitting the sleds, going up hills and working on my footwork and my speed," Hart said. "I've gotten a lot faster and it shows."

As far as grading his junior season, Hart said he would give himself an A.

"I would give myself an A. There are some things I could have done better, but next year, what I'm really looking forward to getting bigger. Upper body, lower body, just getting bigger [all-around]."

When attending junior days this summer, Hart says he will look at the school's "tradition, and I'll see how I fit into their offense, and just how I connect with the coaches, you know. I always want it to be like home."
