San Antonio was once an area of Texas that most college recruiters skipped over when visiting the Lone Star State. However, the city has become a hotbed as of late.
One of the top prospects in the city, and the state for that matter, in the class of 2014 is Roosevelt safety Arrion Springs. The 5-foot-11, 187-pound junior-to-be has already picked up his first offer.
“I’ve been offered by Texas Tech but that’s the only one so far,” the early four-star prospect said. “I went to their camp and then they offered me after that. They said they really liked me as a player.”
Springs also attended two other camps in the state of Texas and one of those schools has shown heavy interest since.
“I also went to camps at Baylor and TCU,” he said. “Baylor said they’re going to really recruit me. They’re just waiting until my junior year – that’s what they said. I haven’t really talked to TCU that much.”
An out-of-state SEC program could also be close to pulling the trigger on an offer.
“I think Florida could be close to offering me too,” Springs said. “I went to their camp this summer and they were very interested. They’re going to be coming down to watch me play.”
When it comes to favorites, Springs has no hang-ups about leaving home to play ball.
“I really like Florida, USC and Oregon,” he said. “I’ve been a USC fan since I was little. I really like Florida too. That’s like my No. 1 as of right now. I’ve always wanted to go check out Oregon too. I like everything they do up there.”
