Flowers already has an idea what his strengths are as a football player.
"I'm a pretty good offensive tackle," said the 6-5, 300-pounder who also plays on the defensive side of the ball at times. "I'm also good at doing what the coaches tell me to do. And I do what I can do for the team."
He also knows there are things he needs to work on.
"I'm working on getting my strength up and my speed," said Flowers, who helped his Simmons High School team to an 8-5 record this past season. "I'm also working on being dedicating to practicing and things like that."
He's already caught the end of three colleges.
"I've received a couple of letters that came to the school," said Flowers. "Mississippi State sends invits to their games. Auburn and Georgia Tech are also sending letters."
He took Mississippi State up on the invitations to attend one of their game. And it appears he made an impression with the coach who is recruiting him for Mississippi State.
"I visited a Mississippi State game and I did get to meet their recruiting coach, (assistant) Coach (Melvin) Smith," said Flowers. "(Since then) I have talked to him on the phone."
He already has an idea what he is looking for in a college.
"I want to go to a school where I can learn about technology," said Flowers. "I love technology and I want to major in something like that. As for the football team, I want it to feel like home. Really, I just want to play ball, that's all."
As of now, two stand at the top of his very early recruiting wish list.
"I like Mississippi State and Auburn," said Flowers.
