In-State Schools On Top For Mayweather
With the talent pool so deep in the Class of 2009, many great athletes may not have made some of the top recruiting list, but still are solid Division I players. That is where Klein Oak defensive back Jeremy Mayweather falls in. With interest coming from several major conferences, the 5-foot-7, 180-pound Mayweather patiently waits for that first initial offer. "I don't have an offer right now, but I have interest from Texas Tech, LSU, Missouri, Arizona, Texas A&M, Oregon, and TCU," Mayweather said. "I have been to a couple of junior days and both of them went well." The two schools Mayweather checked out were North Texas and Texas Tech. Though the Red Raiders have been showing the most interest to date, Mayweather was quick to say that there are no early favorites. But, if an offer were to come in the near future, Mayweather feels it would come from the Texas Tech program. "It's not telling when I will be offered by any school," Mayweather said. "But if I had to choose a school I think it would come from, it would be (Texas) Tech. I really liked it up there (Lubbock) and it is cool because I have a lot of family from down there." While on his junior day visit, he said that coach Mike Leach "really made him feel welcome" and he looks forward to going back down there. With North Texas, Mayweather was equally impressed minus the family factor. "When I was there I really liked the facilities, coaches and players," Mayweather said. "Everyone was cool and they made me feel at home." For the moment, Mayweather said he would take it easy for a little while during the off-season. He does have plans to visit a few more schools, but have not chosen where to yet because he wants to see a few spring games. As a junior, Mayweather 67 tackles, seven pass break-ups, and four forced fumbles.
