Justice Solid to SMU

A.J. Justice

A.J. Justice, the three-star safety from (Houston) Stratford, committed to SMU in August and after surveying the landscape at a few other programs, he's solid to the Mustangs.

"I'm solid to SMU. Coach (Jeff) Reinebold came down for our walk-through prior to the Magnolia West game," said A.J. Justice, the nation's #62-ranked safety prospect. "SMU has come back around and continued to show more interest. They're really interested in me and say I'll be able to make a huge impact there.

"I asked Coach Reinebold about the conference situation at SMU, because everybody is switching and joining conferences. Coach Reinebold talked to my coaches, too. SMU wants me to come up for their homecoming game against Tulane. I'm going to try to go with my parents. It will be a regular, unofficial visit. I'm going to take my official after the season."

Justice and his teammates -- after a subpar (1-3) start -- have caught fire and are the owners of a four-game winning streak. The Spartans have not only won four straight, they've flexed their muscles and dominated the opposition (176-36 margin of victory). Last Friday, Stratford strutted onto Magnolia West's home turf and walked away with a resounding 51-13 victory.

"Our offense has played great and our defense has done really good too," said Justice. "I had a forced fumble against Magnolia West that I also recovered. (Three-star QB) Jeremiah Briscoe has turned it on; it's been like night and day with the difference in how he's been playing (Stratford managed only 48 total points in its initial four tilts)."

This Friday, Stratford takes on Waller (3-5). In the final week of the regular-season, the Spartans travel to undefeated Brenham, which features five-star DT Malcolm Brown, four-star LB Tim Cole, and three-star RB/LB Troy Green.
