Richards was recruited by Oklahoma State and ended up in Stillwater, where he was converted to cornerback on defense. When Ashton Lampkin goes down last season with a bad ankle injury then he steps in and by the end of the season is playing really well on the corner.
That is how it can sometimes go with these camps. You never know what you will discover.
Then numbers have been good over the years in San Antonio, but this morning were a little bit down as 136 campers were in attendance. Two years ago there were 149 and last year right around 160.
One player that reportedly stood out to witnesses at the camp was Refugio, Texas junior quarterback Jaylon Mascorro (pictured above). That really shouldn't be a surprise as Mascorro is 6-2, 205 pounds, and reportedly runs a 4.5 and change in the forty.
As a sophomore, he was the District 15-2A Division 1 Offensive Most Valuable Player. Moscorro is truly a dual threat as he threw for 3,462 yards and 40 touchdowns and only threw two interceptions. He ran for nearly 1,000 yards, coming up just short with 949 yards and 6 rushing touchdowns. He is a very impressive athlete.
He has offers from Houston, Kansas, SMU, and Rice, with interest from Oklahoma State now and BYU, LSU, TCU, Texas and Texas A&M.
There were some talented young offensive linemen in attendance and we think one of them was part of a solid contingent of San Antonio Reagan players. Of course, Oklahoma State has former Reagan standout Austin Hays on the squad and his career is followed closely by Reagan coaches, parents, and players.
The offensive lineman we think was there would be junior tackle Derek Kerstetter. The 6-5, 280-pound Kerstetter is already attracting plenty of recruiting attention.
A couple of other Reagan players worth note are quarterback turned wide receiver Cade Bormet (6-1, 180), safety Jake Hoggatt (6-0 1/2, 190 pounds), and defensive end/linebacker Jonathan Cox (6-4, 220 pounds). All three of those players are juniors.
Hoggatt had an impressive season with 64 tackles and five interceptions as a sophomore. Cox had monster numbers for a young player with 62 tackles, 33 unassisted, 10 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 2 fumbles forced, and 3 fumbles recovered.
The Cowboys staff along with the MHB coaches moved down the road on Friday into Friendswood for the third stop on the Crusader Camps tour across Texas.
