Whitehouse's football class of 2014 is loaded on the offensive side of the ball, but don't forget one of East Texas' top junior linebackers plays for the Wildcats, too.

Reggie Long has started to catch recruiters' eyes. The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder has been invited to a Tulsa junior day Feb. 2.

Long hasn't received an offer yet, but it appears to be only a matter of time. He told ETSN.fm that he's received interest from Michigan, Michigan State, SMU, Tulsa, Utah, and Washington State.

Long had a strong junior season, collecting 80 tackles, six sacks, two interceptions, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and 12 quarterback hurries.

Whitehouse, which finished 10-2 in 2012, also boasts several non-senior playmakers who will join Long on what could be a strong 2013 Wildcat squad. Patrick Mahomes, who holds offers from Rice and Texas Tech, is back at quarterback, as well as Whitehouse's second-, third-, and fourth-leading receivers from this past season: Jake Parker, Coleman Patterson, and Jaylon Dews.

Returning with Long on defense are sophomores Justin Dunning (6-4, 200-pound safety) and Nate Brooks (cornerback), as well as junior Isaiah Burton (cornerback), among others.

Mahomes, Long, and Dunning are likely among East Texas' top recruits in the 2014 and 2015 classes, respectively.
