This week, we’ll take a look at a few athletes who have picked up some big deals and what tours they have planned in the next two months…
Class of 2024, OL Koltin Sieracki, The Woodlands HS
This year, The Woodlands High School had one of the best OLs in the state with an AVG weight of 318…that’s better than most D1 programs. A big part of that OL was Sophomore G Koltin Sieracki.
Sieracki at 6’3 305 is strong and mean in the trenches with quickness to get out and block power and screens. The Sophomore has received offers from Baylor, SMU, Texas Tech, TCU and most recently Arkansas.
Speaking with Sieracki about this first offer from Baylor, he said: “Baylor’s call was insane because it was my brother and I’s first offer…we both went crazy! We were on the same call and received ours at the same time so it was a pretty cool experience”.
The Woodlands O-Lineman told me that from now on, he has built strong relationships with all the coaches that have offered to him thus far and is excited to continue to connect with others.
The Sophomore said he has unofficial and junior days planned as well, but is still looking for dates at this time. Sieracki’s recruiting is heating up and being one of the protective men for one of the top QBs in the state Mabrey Mettauer, he is bound to get a lot more offers in his junior year.
Class of 2023, DL Samu Taumanupepe, Atascocita HS
Atascocita High School had a strong season last year advancing to the state quarterfinals. While many headlines featured 5-star OL Kam Dewberry, on the other side of the trenches DL Samu Taumanupepe was making a name for himself and his recruitment was racing.
The 6’4, 380-pound junior was launched this year receiving small D1 offers from Texas State, Ball State, UCA and recently received his first major offer from Oregon .
When asked what it was like to receive that first major offer from Oregon face to face during his unofficial visit, he said he was “totally surprised”.
While chatting with Samu, I asked him which coaches he had the best relationships with so far and the two names he mentioned were Coach Tuioti from Oregon and Coach Robinson from Texas A&M.
The Junior DL has unofficial tours and Junior Days scheduled at Texas A&M, Texas, Florida, Houston, and UCA. Taumanupepe is set for a big senior season and expects him to get more offers this offseason.
Class of 2023, WR Jonah Wilson, Dekaney HS
Dekaney High School has struggled since winning the state championship in 2011, but is showing promise for the 2022 season with star WR Jonah Wilson.
Last year the Junior WR received offers from Texas A&M, UNT, LSU, UTSA, Houston, Pitt, Arkansas, Colorado, Baylor, Purdue, Kansas, PVAMU, Ohio State and Texas.
Speaking with Wilson about getting his first major offer from Texas A&M, he said, “It was amazing. Getting my first offer feels like the things you’ve worked so hard for are starting to pay off. My coaches told me it would happen but it’s always kind of surreal when it does.”
I also asked Wilson about getting this offer from the State of Ohio aka WRU asking him what it meant to him and he said “Getting this offer was so humbling to the point that you really had to to sit down. To get an offer from WRU, it’s basically, they believe I can be as good or better than Garret Wilson, Chris Olave, Jaxon Smith-Njiba or Marvin Harrison. It’s like wow.”
At this time, Wilson said he has no visits planned, but said he would like to ride and visit Texas, Baylor and Ohio State in the offseason. The junior also mentioned that he has the best relationship with Coach Marion from Texas and Coach Kee from Ohio State.
Wilson is one of the best WRs in the state if not the country and one should expect his offer list to grow as he enters his senior year.
Class of 2023, DE Ashton Porter, Cy-Ranch HS
This year Cy-Ranch finished second in the district playing good football but suffered a tough 1st round loss to Klein Oak. A big part of Cy Ranch’s success this year has been 4 Stars FROM Ashton Porter.
The Junior is one of the best DEs in the state with offers from Arizona State, Colorado, SMU, Texas, Michigan State, CAL, Baylor, Tennessee, PVAMU, Ole Miss, Indiana, Houston, Arizona, Washington State , Kansas, Nebraska, TSU, TCU, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Southern U, K-State and Purdue.
Asked about getting Arizona State Porter’s first offer, he said: “The call was great, I thought I was just going to talk to the coach and start building a relationship and then they told me. have proposed”.
The junior has previously attended junior days at Arkansas, Texas, Texas Tech and Baylor, but plans to attend more throughout the offseason. So far, Porter has made the strongest connections with coaches in Texas, Baylor, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Arizona State, to name a few. some.
As he approaches his senior year, expect big things from Ashton Porter as he will be one of Texas State’s top defensive prospects.
