Dent Expecting Texas Offer Soon

South Grand Prairie defensive lineman Randall Dent is one of the state's best. Dent came to Austin for a Texas Junior Day and didn't receive an offer, but the 6-4, 270-pound mauler from the Metroplex said that's going to change in the very near future.

Randall Dent has his top three.

"It's LSU, Texas and Oklahoma State in no particular order," he said.

However, Oklahoma State is the only of those three to offer, one of a set he now holds.

"I have five offers," he said. "I have Oklahoma State, Kansas, Texas Tech, Minnesota and Oregon. Texas, LSU and some other ones are showing a lot of interest too but I can't remember them all."

Since OSU is the only school out of his top three to offer, is Dent expecting a full-ride to come his way soon from the Tigers or the Longhorns?

"I haven't heard anything from LSU about an offer but Texas said they will be offering pretty soon," he said.

If the Horns offer would that make Dent rush to make a decision?

"When the time is right and I feel like I made the right decision I will go with it but I'm not going to feel rushed into making one," he said.

He's got his top schools figured out, but what is it about those schools that make them stand out over the others?

Texas—"I know a couple of kids down there and I think I'd fit in very well at Texas. I visited the school and I really liked it so I got a good feel for Texas."

LSU—"I like the program and their style of defense. They have a winning tradition and that kind of attracts me to their program as well."

Oklahoma State—"It's kind of the same with Texas. I know some kids over there as well and I like my recruiting coordinator (Curtis Luper). He seems like a real nice guy. I visited their school and they have a lot of new facilities so I'm real attracted to their program."

Dent has already visited Texas and Oklahoma State but he has yet to step foot on campus at LSU. He plans on visiting Baton Rouge at some point this summer.

As a junior, Dent (6-4, 270) was in on 60 tackles and five sacks, and he caused two fumbles and recovered three more.
