Getting Back On Track

In recruiting now a days, the most crucial high school year for a student athlete is his junior season. This wide-out missed almost all of it because of injury and now he's battling back.

In the second game of his junior season, Kolton Pierce, a WR from Lindale HS, suffered an ankle injury that would unfortunately derail his entire junior campaign.

"I was injured early on in the second game with a leg injury. A bone in my ankle was broken. It required surgery and a plate was inserted," said Pierce.

He's currently still rehabbing, getting closer to completing it and getting fully released. That hasn't kept programs such as Texas State, Oklahoma State and others on staying in contact with him and showing interest.

The 6'0" 185lb prospect does play both ways for Lindale, but he shows a knack to make plays from his wide-out spot. Along with good size, before his injury he did turn in a laser 4.48 40 yard dash time.

He recently attended the Texas State spring game and will be visiting Abilene Christian later this summer. Earlier in the spring he did try to make it out to the east coast to visit Yale and Harvard, but the timing was just off.

Suffering his injury during his junior season did lead to frustration for Pierce, but he's moving on from it. He's ready to work hard and prove himself to any potential division one suitors.
