With Clear Springs High still deep into their playoff run, and a date with Katy High set for Friday night, two-way athlete Trevon Randle is trying to steer clear of the recruiting trail.
“I have all this unopened mail just stacked up,” he said. “Letters come from different schools every single day, and most of the schools send more than one thing. It is already starting to get where a lot of different places are showing me love, and I still have a season to go.”
“LSU is what I am waiting on,” Randle said. “I must get eight letters a day from them, but no offer yet.”
If and when the offer does come, don’t expect the 6-foot-2, 205-pound prospect to wait around very long.
“I have already told people that when LSU offers, I might just go ahead and commit right then and be done with it,” Randle said. “My interest is that high. I have always been a big fan of the program and I have family in that area, so it is the perfect fit.
“I know schools like Texas and other places are going to keep recruiting me and maybe even offer, but right now I feel like LSU is the team to beat.”
Last month, Clear Springs head coach Clint Hartman talked about what Randle, who projects at outside linebacker or running back, brings to the table.
“There’s no doubt he will be a big-time player,” he said. “I think he is a top player in the nation and he could line up for anybody in the country and make them better. Whoever gets him will win some football games and he’ll be a big part of it.
“I like that he brings consistency. You don’t have to worry about grades or him getting in trouble. He is always going to give you his all. When you look at all of those things, there is nothing to worry about.”
