Grand Blanc (Mich.) junior linebacker Lester Liston impressed at the Best of the Midwest Showcase…
Liston Taking Trips
Grand Blanc's Lester Liston is an aggressive, attacking, 6'2, 225-lb linebacker who colleges are beginning to pursue harder. "I'm going to Bowling Green Saturday," he said. "They invited me down to watch practice and meet all the coaches, and I went back to Toledo." The Rockets were one of the first schools to begin recruiting Liston, and he has now been to their campus twice. In addition to those schools, a few more have jumped into the picture. "I heard from Cincinnati, and Michigan contacted my head coach at Grand Blanc and hit me on Facebook. The linebacker coach at Bowling Green wants me to come back to a workout, so they can check out my footwork and hopefully I get down to Michigan in a week or two." Liston says he has received very positive feedback from Toledo both times he has been down there, and he hopes an offer will come soon from the Rockets. "Well they are being real selective at the linebacker position. They're only taking two linebackers, so they want to see the guys in workouts before they do offers, but they do like me." So where will that first offer come from? "Bowling Green is talking about it. We'll see what happens Saturday. Coach wants to meet me in person." var VideoMediaID = "909796" var Volume= "0" var MediaDir = "http://video.scout.com/media/"; var VideoURL = MediaDir + "video/flv/" + parseInt( VideoMediaID / 10000 ) + "/" + VideoMediaID + ".flv"; var ImageURL = MediaDir + "video/flv/" + parseInt( VideoMediaID / 10000 ) + "/" + VideoMediaID + "t.jpg"; var so = new SWFObject ('http://cdn-cms.scout.com/swf/flvplayer.swf','mpl','100%','300','2'); so.addParam ('allowscriptaccess','always'); so.addParam ('allowfullscreen','true'); so.addVariable ('height','300'); so.addVariable ('file',VideoURL); so.addVariable ('image',ImageURL); so.addVariable('volume', Volume); so.addVariable('mute', 'false'); so.addVariable ('backcolor','0x000000'); so.addVariable ('frontcolor','0xFFFFFF'); so.addVariable ('lightcolor','0x00FF00'); so.addVariable ('screencolor','0x000000'); so.addVariable('stretching','stretchfit'); so.addVariable('overstretch', 'true'); so.addVariable ('logo','http://media.scout.com/media/a/_network/mediaplayer/scoutTVlogo.png'); so.addVariable ('showstop','true'); so.write ('player'); #25 LESTER LISTON | LB | Grand Blanc (Mich.)
