Texas Showing Interest, But No Invite Yet

The Texas Longhorns will desperately be in need of some defensive end commitments from the 2009 class after missing out on the Lone Star State's elite in '08. Some would argue that Houston Chavez's Mike Brockers is the best of the bunch. After all, he already holds four offers. However, he has yet to receive any junior day invites.

"Recruiting is going well," Mike Brockers said. "Texas, Texas A&M and Oregon State have been showing a lot of interest. I've been getting a lot of letters. LSU has been sending a lot of letters."

On top of the schools mentioned above, Brockers currently holds offers from Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and Houston. However, he has yet to receive any junior day invitations.

Junior days or not, Brockers is planning on making several trips this summer.

"This summer or soon, I'm planning on going to LSU, Oklahoma and Texas A&M on visits," Brockers said. "LSU invited me, so I'm going to their summer camp."

Anybody looking for Brockers to stay in Big 12 country might want to think again. He has had a favorite for almost a year now, and it's an SEC school.

"Really my top school for like the last year has been LSU," Brockers said. "I like being in that conference. The SEC is the strongest conference in the nation right now, I believe. I just like their program. I've seen them on TV. Looking on the Internet and reading up about it, and I think I would fit in well with their program."

Brockers didn't recall his stats from his junior season, but he did bring home First Team All-District honors.
