HOU Notebook (4/30/14) – 2015 Edition

Holton Hill

Scout.com has had lots of activity in the Midlands region. Today, we look at a few recruiting notes from the Greater Houston area.

Two Quick Offers for Lampkin
Last week (April 22), Cy Falls defensive tackle Du'Vonta Lampkin went to twitter to announce that he was going to open up his recruitment after being a longtime commitment to Oklahoma. Soon after, just a few days later, Lampkin was offered by Texas Tech. Following the Red Raiders, this tweet showed on his timeline.

"Offered by Notre Dame University."

It looks as though Lampkin will continue to see what offers come through this spring and continue enjoying the process. 

Anderson Laying Low
Whenever the word gets out that a player wants to open up his commitment, sometimes referred to as a decommitment, there is plenty of assumptions that begin floating around. So when Katy running back Rodney Anderson made this choice to open up from his Texas A&M commitment, several stories came out about why this went down, the cause and what programs are now in play. Nothing on the record has been spoken of, so most, if not all, is hearsay. Only thing that is known was that Anderson was seen at Oklahoma earlier this off season. Aside from that, this appears to be a situation where Anderson simply wants to take a step, focus on the off season and make sure that his first choice was the right one. 

There's an "Opening" for Hill
Last week, Lamar cornerback Holton Hill landed a Cal offer, which he was excited about. But earlier this week, he got some other news that is not really recruiting related, but had him equally elated. He was awarded with spot No. 89 with an invite to The Opening, an elite competition that will take place in Oregon in July. Word is that he remains open to all programs recruiting him. 

Offers Pouring In…
--For defensive back James Locke (PJ) from Beaumont Central, he landed Memphis (most recent, Tuesday), Oklahoma State and Georgia offers. He is pushing 30 offers at this point.

--Port Arthur Memorial running back Corey Dauphine, a Texas Tech commitment, got offered by Baylor.

--Five Star defensive back Kendall Sheffield from Marshall was offered by Penn State

--Sticking with the Marshall program, offensive lineman Sam Awolope has two offers: Nebraska and Wake Forest, both came in recently. 

--The Pac 12 has taken a liking to Alief Taylor safety Kenneth McGruder. On Monday, California offered him. The next day, it was Colorado extending an offer. McGruder has become one of the hot prospects in Midlands region. 

--Manvel defensive back William Lockett wants to make a decision at some point during the summer. Now he will have one more schools to consider as Purdue offered him earlier this week.
