Timmons high on the Sooners

Aldine Eisenhower WR Greg Timmons has made a name for himself after posting back-to-back solid seasons. Now the hard work put in on the field has brought a handful of Division I interest. He also has a favorite. TPI caught up with Timmons to bring you this recruiting update.

After making the playoffs and advancing to the Texas area round, the Aldine Eisenhower football program seems to be on the up and up. With that said, many of the athletes who make up that team are seeing interest on the Division I level. That includes junior wide receiver Greg Timmons

The 6-2, 195-pound Timmons saw plenty of action this year and has already started raking in some interest.

"I am getting interest from a few Big 12 schools like Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Oklahoma State," Timmons said. "Oklahoma is really showing me the most love and extended an offer to me verbally. I was kind of shocked."

Timmons and a few of his Eisenhower teammates took an unofficial visit to Norman earlier in the season to see the Sooners against the Aggies. After that, he said that Oklahoma is high on his list.

"I like the tradition up there," Timmons said. "Game day was like one big Mardi Gras. The strength coach told me if I was to come there he could get me up to 215 (pounds). I should have went on and gave a verbal (commitment) right there." 

Besides the Sooners, Timmons is interested in other programs. Both Missouri and Oklahoma State rank high as well. With Missouri, he said he likes the spread offense and felt like he could see himself playing there.

With Oklahoma State, he has a connection with one of the Cowboys' star players.

"A good friend of mine who goes there is Dez Bryant from Lufkin," Timmons said. "He told me the program really helps you develop into a better football player. Also, I think they have a good team chemistry."

During his junior campaign, Timmons caught 33 passes for 600 yards and six touchdowns. He considers himself a "balanced receiver who runs routes to perfection." Timmons plans to attend the Army All-American Combine in San Antonio in January.
