When the clock wound down and the game was over, Katy White defeated Katy Red 24-17 in the 2011 Katy Spring Game. As usual, the Katy defense was strong and it looks at though another stellar group of defenders will be lining up for the Tigers.
One prospect who looked good on the day from the White team was Bo Brown (6-0, 215). Still early in the process for him, but said that some programs have been in contact, but nothing serious at this point. He should end up on a college roster. Another player who is one to definitely keep an eye on is sophomore linebacker Jake Blomstrom (6-3, 220). This young man has all of the tools to be a Top 100 linebacker. He played good technique on the run and if he was not first in on the action, he in on the clean up. Remember the name.
For the Red team, prospect and quarterback Brooks Haack is the player who is getting most of the attention on the roster. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Haack still only holds the lone offer from North Texas, but few other programs are in pursuit.’
One of which may be offer No. 2 for him.
“I have talked with the coaches at Wyoming. If I had to guess, I think they would be the next to offer,” Haack said.
Haack said that Oklahoma State, and recently TCU and Pittsburgh have shown interest. He has yet to decide where he will camp this summer.
In the backfield with Haack is the Tiger workhorse, who proved last season a sophomore that he is more than capable of carrying the load. Running back Adam Taylor ripped off quite a few runs of 30 yards or more, but was going against a defense that was quite stingy. Things are still early, but the 6-foot, 190-pound Taylor will be one of the top players in the state sooner than later.
Also on the Red team, offensive lineman Aaron Sowell (6-1, 270), who sat out of the game, said that he is looking forward to a camp circuit that includes Houston and Texas.
Other notes: Plenty of Katy alumni were on hand for the intrasquad scrimmage. From Texas A&M, safety Trent Hunter, Shep Klinke and Terrence Frederick came by the visit with the fans. From North Texas, safety Brad Graham was there as well. Also Illinois incoming freshman running back Donovonn Young was present.
