Blinn full of prospects

Blinn Junior College in Brenham, Texas, is loaded with prospects with offers on both sides of the ball.

On defense, defensive end Emmanuel Stephens headlines a group of four athletes with that will play at the Division I level next season.

The 6-foot-3 defender has offers from Arkansas, Washington State, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Texas Tech, Mississippi Sate, Kansas State and North Texas.

"Emannuel plays harder that any kid I've had," Blinn assistant Keith Browning said. "He's relentless. He is going to take some visits, but I know that he likes Washington State and Arkansas because we have some kids that played with him at those two schools."

At the other defensive end is Clint Leal, a 6-foot-5, 225-pounder who is receiving interest from Connecticut, Houston, Arizona and Alabama-Birmingham.

"Clint was probably our best all-around player this season," Browning said. "He's a very long and smart player that can play end or outside linebacker."

Blinn linebacker Sterling Lewis and cornerback Paul Stephens are also receiving interest from the likes of Washington State, Arizona, Ole Miss, Tulsa, Louisiana Tech and Alabama-Birmingham.

"Sterling's a big-time linebacking prospect and has a couple offers right now," Browning said. "Paul is all over the field. He has a great knack for making big plays. He was an all-American last season."

Deep-snapper Zach Taylor has been offered by Washington State and has aspirations of playing on Sundays.

"He's that good," Browning said. "He could be the best in the country."

With another year remaining, quarterback Terrance Cain will be a highly-coveted recruit next season.

The North Shore High School prospect is a first-team, all-conference quarterback and ranked fourth in the nation in passing.
