Four East Texas Seniors Scheduled for Official Visits This Weekend
Three receivers in East Texas' deep 2014 class of pass-catchers -- and another big-name offensive playmaker -- are scheduled for official visits this weekend.
Carthage receiver Terian "Tee" Goree and Sulphur Springs athlete Willy Ivery will visit North Texas, where both players are committed.
The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Goree, who committed to North Texas in late November, led East Texas in receptions (89), receiving yards (1,744), and touchdown catches (28) in 2013, which saw Goree and the Bulldogs finish 15-1 with the Class 3A Division I state championship, their four title in six years.
Ivery, who committed only three days after Carthage's O'Keeron Rutherford and Goree pledged to North Texas, played primarily at running back in 2013, when he amassed 2,059 total yards from scrimmage and 32 touchdowns. He ran for 1,673 yards and 27 touchdowns in 11 games.
Whitehouse's Coleman Patterson has planned an official visit to Southern Illinois this weekend. The 6-foot-1, 165-pound Patterson caught 41 passes for 719 yards and eight touchdowns in only seven games before suffering a season-ending collarbone injury. Southern Illinois competes at the Division I FCS level in the Missouri Valley Football Conference and finished the 2013 with a 7-5 record.
San Augustine's coaching staff told ETSN.fm that Dez Randle is headed to Trinity Valley Community College this weekend. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Randle caught 65 passes for 1,380 yards and 21 touchdowns in 2013, finishing second in the region in receiving scores behind Goree. TVCC is a D-I JUCO program that competes in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference.
Randle led San Augustine in all three receiving categories and helped the Wolves reach the second round of the Class A Division I Region III playoffs.
