Guy's got offers

Eisenhower High is no stranger to top flight talent. That said, with the introduction of the 2010 class comes defensive line standout Jay Guy. Guy holds a number of offers, and his list of potential suitors grows by the month.

With his junior season behind him, the 6-foot-1, 300-pound defensive tackle is ready to start evaluating his college choices.


"I have picked up offers from Texas A&M, Stanford, Kansas State and Michigan," Guy said. "They are all really good schools, and I am going to look into all four of them over the next year. All of them have a great standard of education, and that is important to me."


While the early offers hold some weight, the Houston-native is waiting on a few more big schools to come calling.


"Texas, Oklahoma and LSU are some schools I am really waiting to get that offer from," Guy said. "Those are the schools that I have always been big into, so to get an offer from them will be big."


As for the Tigers, Guy admits that he is already feeling the love.


"They are sending me lots of letters and keeping the contact there," he said. "I am hoping they offer. They put a lot of players into the NFL, and I definitely like that. You see a player like Glenn Dorsey go into the league, and you like that he dominated and won all those awards. I want to be that next kind of player."


Guy's teammate, 2009 five-star prospect and LSU target Craig "Poppa" Loston, has helped the junior get a feel for how things would be in Louisiana's capital city.


"Craig always says Baton Rouge is a great place, and that he really likes it," Guy said. "I am excited to get over there. I am coming for Junior Day on Jan. 31. I have always followed LSU, so I am ready to see what they offer. I also want to see if they are really interested in me."


After a 7-3-1 season with the Eagles, culminating in a 62-21 loss to Cinco Ranch on Nov. 21, Guy said that he is ready to bounce back into a solid senior season.


"The season went pretty good," he said. "I got first-team all district. I played pretty well, and I felt the team did as well. I noticed a lot more double teams and sometimes triple teams, so I suspect next season I will get more of that.


"I shed about fifteen pounds and grew and inch over the season," he added. "I am a lot quicker now than I ever have been before. My footwork can get better, so that is something that I need to work on. I have a year to go, so this summer I am going to really work on getting into the best shape that I can be."
