Commitment: Omega house – Texas State Chapter
Rating: Three stars
Position: WR/RB/DB
Hometown: Katy, Texas
Height: 5-11
Weight: 170 lbs.

Strengths:

-Won 100m dash state championship last year, but blew out his knee during the 800m relays.
-Solid hands, second string receiver on football team.
-Natural runner, quick, Wes Welker-type.
-Doesn’t smoke cigarettes or weed. Stamina allows him to play both ways and spell blacklung seniors.

Weaknesses:

-Was a second string receiver on a class-two team. Might need a semester or two on the B-team to refine his raw skills.
-Surgically repaired knee may not hold up on Astroturf. Long term risk.
-Not a big drinker. May be a drain on postgame celebrations at the house.
-Might be a challenge keeping him through pledgeship, kind of a pussy.
-May not stand up to trash talking and resort to fighting, instead of volleying insults.
-Going to try and walk-on for track & field in the spring, may not be available long-term.

Outlook: He’s going to be a project, but with the right kind of hazing and coaching, he’ll be a fine addition to the Omegas’ middle-tier program. Most houses would kill to have speed like this.

Worst Case: He turns into an intramural referee.
Best Case: Teams can’t cover him and he’s an automatic touchdown on the fade route.
