Recruiting: Horns Lead For Houston Athlete

Houston Lamar ATH/LB prospect Orie Lemon, enjoying his spring break when we caught up with him, said he has one official offer from a Big 12 South power, with another one on its way.

Orie Lemon, who stood at or about 6-1/6-2, 205-210 when Scout checked him out last year, is now closer to 6-2, 210-215 pounds.

The former all-district middle linebacker for Yates moved to QB last year. While the Horns offered him as an athlete, and we lean toward projecting him as a linebacker, some think he can stay at QB.

Immediate plans have Lemon slated to make both the Oklahoma State and Texas Spring Games.

Leader/commitment time frame?

"Texas is my top school right now," Lemon said. "And, I’ll probably wait till the end of spring before making a decision."<p>

The Burnt Orange appears to be solidly out in front. And, if Lemon does decide to make a decision early, it’ll likely be the Horns…
