Big OT at Woodlands High School

The Woodlands High School in Texas is home to a very good junior offensive lineman. Brandon Thompson is an athletic tackle with solid run blocking ability. Head Coach Mark Schmid weighed in on Thompson and two other prospects on The Woodlands's roster.

Brandon Thompson has the size and athletic ability to be a major recruit in the class of 2008. The 6-foot-5, 275-pound offensive tackle is already receiving a lot of mail from Big 12 schools. He runs the 40-yard dash in 5.2 seconds.

"Brandon has real good feet. He is a solid run blocker," Schmid said. "He is not one of these unathletic big men. He is a very athletic."

"Brandon Thompson has been getting mail as of late from Division I schools," Schmid said. "He is hearing from just about everybody: Texas A&M, Baylor, Oklahoma State, UTEP and Kansas."

The 6-foot-1, 240-pound Herman Watson plays a big role on the Highlander's defensive line. He can play either defensive tackle or end, but he would probably be better suited to play end on the next level. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds.

"He has real good feet and his motor runs all the time," Schmid said. "So does his mouth. He just talks all the time."

Tracy Milo plays running back for the Highlanders. He is a major part of their offense and has carried the ball over 90 times in the first four games. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Milo had gained 346 yards on 91 carries this season.

"He has strength and great vision. He sees the field real well," Schmid said. "We're a big zone team, so his vision is important. He is a tough runner and is very durable."

The Woodlands High School plays away this Friday night at Klein Oak High School.
