John Tyler’s Justice Liggins + Darion Flowers Receive Lamar Offers, Will Visit Feb. 1
John Tyler senior receivers Justice Liggins and Darion Flowers have been offered by Lamar and will visit the school Feb. 1, Liggins told ETSN.fm on Monday evening.
Liggins, a 6-foot-1, 195-pounder, also holds offers from Wyoming, Northwestern State, Stephen F. Austin State, Southeastern Louisiana, and Houston Baptist.
Liggins visited SFA this past weekend.
“It went good. It was nice,” Liggins said. “I like how SFA throws the ball a lot. … I want somewhere I can get on the field ASAP.”
Liggins caught 56 passes for 699 yards and seven touchdowns and ran for two touchdowns as a senior, when JT finished 13-2 with a Class 4A Division I state semifinal appearance. Flowers also had a big year with 69 catches for 1,143 yards and nine touchdowns.
Liggins, who plans to major in kinesiology and become a coach, is ready for the recruiting process to be over.
“It’s been hard being under the radar when you know you’re better than some of the people going to some of the big D-I schools,” he said. “It’ just been kinda stressful waking up every morning wondering where you’re gonna end up.”
Liggins and Flowers are two members of a loaded John Tyler graduating football class. Receiver Fred Ross is committed to Oklahoma State, while defensive end Tyus Bowser, who visited Oklahoma State this past weekend, holds offers from the Cowboys, Memphis, Missouri, Texas Tech, ULL, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Quarterback Greg Ward is committed to Houston. Linebacker Richard Gipson and athlete DeQuante Woods are among other JT seniors who are likely to end up with college programs as well.
