Hallsville’s Hayden Wall, John Tyler’s Darion Flowers Each Pick Up an Offer
Two East Texas football players received scholarship offers from colleges over the weekend.
Hallsville’s Hayden Wall told ETSN.fm that he received his first offer on an unofficial visit to Stephen F. Austin State. Wall, a 6-foot-4, 270-pound left tackle for the Bobcats (6-3, 2-2), was a member of the ETSN.fm Preseason East Texas Super Team.
Wall has also received interest from Louisiana Tech and Sam Houston State.
John Tyler’s Darion Flowers picked up an offer from Houston Baptist, according to a Sunday morning text from JT coach Ricklan Holmes. Flowers has 32 catches for 587 yards and five touchdowns for the Lions (8-1, 4-0), who are ranked No. 2 in the latest AP Class 4A poll.
Flowers’ teammate, Justice Liggins, also holds an offer from Houston Baptist, a new Division I FCS program that will start playing in 2013 and join the Southland Conference in 2014. Illinois and Louisiana Tech have also shown interest in multiple JT players, including Flowers and Liggins.
