There are several 2012 prospects working hard this summer so that they can make an impact during their upcoming junior seasons. Red Oak (Texas) Red Oak High athlete Jeremy Brady is no exception. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound playmaker is looking to improve on his stellar sophomore season and lead his team deep into the state playoffs.

As a sophomore, the Red Oak standout registered a gaudy 115 tackles, four interceptions and two fumble recoveries. This caught the attention of several coaching staffs, including the Longhorns, who extended an invitation to their camp in June. Brady, along with several other talented prospects, traveled to Austin to get a feel for how the Longhorns do things.

"I love the campus there, the coaches treat the athletes real well. I think I did well for it being my first college camp. I think I did (well) on the 1-on-1 and the skill drills," said Brady.

Several schools are already showing interest in the Red Oak playmaker. UCLA, Texas, Princeton, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Houston and Rice are currently recruiting him.

Brady has had a great deal of success in the classroom as well. He is in the top-10 percent of his class and has a 6.8 on an 8-point grade scale.

This summer, Brady plans to try and improve some of the more technical aspects of his game before his upcoming junior season.

"I'm trying to get faster and improve my quickness and my footwork. I also want to improve on coming down-hill and making tackles along with judging the ball in the air."

Brady plans on traveling to Vanderbilt and Northwestern to participate in their camps in July. At this point in his recruitment, he claims to be wide open and is mainly focusing on his upcoming season along with improving himself as a player.

"I'm focused on my high school team right now," he said. "This season I want to try and have more interceptions and get over a hundred tackles again. I also want to try and become a more vocal leader."
