Big 12 Recruiting

Big 12 Football Edition: Best Quotes from Nike Football’s The Opening in Dallas

Nike Football The Opening

On Sunday, myself and HCS columnist Matthew Postins made our way to Euless Trinity High School (Euless, TX) where we saw around 400 prospects display their talents on the field. We battled out the heat, I got sun burn and, in the end, we saw some great plays made along with some excellent quotes from prospects with serious interest in Big 12 schools. We watched over 8 hours of drills, one on ones, you name it, but the important thing at the end of the day is, where do schools stand with these talented young men? Here is the best of the best from Sunday afternoon in Dallas. Enjoy!

2019 3-star DE Trace Ford (Edmond, OK)- Big 12 offers: Oklahoma State & Iowa State

“I’ve been to Oklahoma State three times now — twice for spring practice and for junior days. They’re cool. They like me a lot and I like them a lot.”

2019 4-star DE Marcus Hicks (Wichita, KS)- Big 12 offers: OSU, OU, Baylor, TX, KSU & KU

“I want to have at least my Top 5 by the end of the summer. (The chances of Texas making it) I think so.”

“I think I really fit into their (Texas’) defense because I’ve seen some of their film, and they put my film and their film side by side, and I’ve really been doing exactly what they’re doing. So, it’s really cool seeing that. If I end up going there, there would be pretty much no changes to what I do.”

2020 4-star Safety Chris Thompson (Duncanville, TX)- Big 12 offers: Baylor, OSU, TCU & TX

“I have interest in all my offers at this point. The only visits I’ve taken are Baylor, Texas and I was supposed to go to OSU (Oklahoma State) but I had this camp. They’re nice. College is always nice.”
2020 4-star OT Trent Pullen (Waco, TX)- Big 12 offers: Kansas State and Baylor

“Both are good programs and I would love to go to either one. Baylor is just down the road and I haven’t visited K-State yet, but I heard it’s a great school.”

2019 4-star OT Stacey Wilkins (Camden, AR)- Big 12 offers: OU, TX, KU, OSU & TCU

“I have been having a lot of Big 12 schools look at me. Out of the pack of Big 12 schools Texas and Oklahoma are at the top.”

2020 4-star CB Korie Black (Waco, TX)- Big 12 offers: Baylor, KSU and OSU

“Kansas sticks out to me because my father played there. I really haven’t talked to coach Snyder but my dad told me he is a great coach.” He also mentioned that Bill Snyder stepping down, wouldn’t affect they way he looks at Kansas State.
