Kimball, Texas package deal?

It's not like Jameon Hardeman has to piggy-back on anyone. He has his own offers and had a very productive junior season. He just so happens to be the team-mate and good friend of one of the nation's most recruited DTs -- DeMarcus Granger.

While DeMarcus Granger is probably the stud of the Dallas (Texas) Kimball defensive line; Jameon Hardeman is no slouch. He already has seven offers and expects more with the latest news.

"Yeah, we'd (DeMarcus and Jameon) would like to go to the same school," Jameon said. "I am up to seven offers. I have offers from Arizona State, Tulsa, Utah, Baylor, Texas Tech, TCU, Colorado and Iowa State."

Hardeman said that Texas is in the process of his evaluation and that an offer could be in his future from UT. Oregon is also very interested in Hardeman and an offer could come any day.

To date, Hardeman has only taken one unofficial to Tulsa. "I got to see the campus and players. I got to how they interacted with each other."

Hardeman says that there are still plans to make two camps. He has plans to attend the Texas A&M and Oklahoma State camps. If it is possible he may set up a camp to Houston as well.

While Nebraska hasn't offered or isn't in any unofficial visit plans for Hardeman he admits that the Cornhuskers are there in contention. "I get some letters from Nebraska talking about the school. I have interest in any school that is interested in me."

Hardeman says that his biggest strength on the football field are his feet. "I can go sideline to sideline. I have a big body and am a sure tackler too."

Last year Hardeman had six sacks, two forced fumbles of which he returned one for a touchdown, 32 tackles for loss and 110 total tackles. He earned second team all-district honors.
