Mississippi Brothers Latest Texas Targets

With Texas already at 24 commitments for next Signing Day, few spots remain in the class of '06. But that doesn't mean the Horns aren't searching for (and offering) new prospects. The latest in the Longhorn crosshairs? Olive Branch, Miss. Brothers Anthony and Markeith Summers.

Anthony Summers and Markeith Summers (Olive Branch, Miss.) are two very highly recruited prospects. Anthony (6-3, 200, 4.55) is a Scout.com four star WR prospect and Markeith (6-1, 192, 4.6) is a three star WR prospect. Anthony plays QB for Olive Branch HS, although many project him to play either WR or S on the college level. Texas, though, wants Anthony to play quarterback.

"Coach Giles offered us over the phone. Texas is recruiting me to play QB and my brother to play WR," Anthony said. Texas offered both Anthony and Markeith about two weeks ago and they expect to receive handwritten scholarship offers soon.

When two brothers are being recruited, one would think that they may decide on the same school, but that may not be the case with Anthony and Markeith. "Me and my brother may not end up at the same school," Markeith said. "We haven't really talked about that much."

Both Anthony and Markeith have a top five. "My top five is Florida, Ole Miss, Alabama, LSU, and Nebraska," Anthony said. Anthony went on to say that Texas has a chance of moving into his top five. Markeith already has the Horns in his top five. "My top five is Texas, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, LSU, and Florida," Markeith said. Both Anthony and Markeith would like to take their official visits and then decide on a school.

What do Anthony and Markeith like about Texas? "Texas is a winning program," they said. "It's Texas," Markeith added, succinctly.

Both Anthony and Markeith have the same goal for this year's season. "We want to win a State Championship," they said. "I'm not worried about personal stats," Markeith added. Both Anthony and Markeith are off to a great start as they have led Olive Branch HS to a 2-0 record thus far. "I had 151 yards passing and three TDs," Anthony said. "We won 77-0 over Shelby Broadstreet HS," he added. Markeith had an excellent game as well. "I had three catches for 122 yards and two TDs," he said.

Anthony and Markeith both have the athletic ability to be stars on the next level. Both have qualifying GPAs, but they both will retake the ACT.
