Randall Dent Talks Camps

One of the most intriguing prospects in the 2009 class is without a doubt South Grand Prairie's Randall Dent. At the age of 16, Dent is already one of the most physically imposing prospects in the nation and will likely be recruited by many high profile schools. He talked about summer camp visits and recruiting with Inside Texas.

Randall Dent weighs in at 272 pounds and currently stands at 6-foot-4 and is already being regarded as one of 2009's best defensive linemen. During his sophomore season, he started all 12 games rapping up around 60 tackles on his way to earning all-district honors. He talked about the two schools he has come into contact with over the summer.

"It's going real good," Dent said about summer. "I went to a UT camp, an Oklahoma State camp and a National Underclassmen camp."

"It went real well," Dent said about the UT camp. "I learned a lot down there. I liked the experience and the campus down there. Everything was real nice."

"Actually Oklahoma State came down here," Dent added. "I really like their coaching staff. They taught me a lot of stuff as well."

Dent hasn't made a visit down to Baton Rouge, but the LSU Tigers are another school that he thinks very highly of. He talked about what makes LSU's program so special.

"Their defense," Dent said. "They always have a good defense, and they have a winning tradition."

On top of being a great athlete, Dent is also a good student. Academics are just as important to him as the schools football program.

"Well, academics of course," Dent replied when asked what he was looking for in a school. "I also want to feel comfortable and feel at home wherever I go."

South Grand Prairie's junior class is something special. They had six kids attend camp at UT and are expected to compete for a state championship in 2007. Dent talked about his expectations for the defensive unit during his junior season.

"I think we are going to do some big things," Dent said. "Our D-line has four returning starters and we have a couple of guys coming back in the secondary. So, I definitely think we will be able to do some big things."
