Houston school has several prospects

Jersey Village (Texas) offensive lineman Bobby Janisch verbally committed to Texas A&M last summer, but a lot can happen in a year's time.

The 6-foot-6, 290-pound tackle saw the Aggie coaching staff that began recruiting him as a junior lose their jobs, leaving him caught in the middle. Since the staff change, Janisch is still a prospect for the Aggies, but the new regime wants to evaluate him for the next several months.

With the Aggies on the sidelines, another Big 12 school has aggressively entered the picture.

"Kansas has offered and is really recruiting him heavily," Jersey Village coach David Snokhous said. "He's a big kid that works hard and has great grades. He will play college football at a strong 300 pounds while being very explosive.

"He's a tremendous run blocker and can protect the edge as a tackle," he said. "He's going to be an absolute brute this fall."

Janisch will be taking in some one-day camps after spring football, but a decision could come soon after and Kansas is the front-runner.

The Falcons have two senior defenders that could climb the recruiting ranks with a solid spring. Linebacker Trey Briggs and safety Stephen Campbell are returning first-team all-district selections and have defined skill sets.

"Trey is a sideline to sideline linebacker who played through some injuries last season," Snokhous said. "He's a really tough kid that will play at 235 pounds at the next level. Campbell is a head-hunting safety that everyone is looking for. Oklahoma is evaluating his film right now."

Joining Janisch on the offensive line is sleeper Eddie Maiers, who stands 6 feet 5, 275 pounds.

"Eddie has had a great offseason and will really emerge in the spring," he said. "He's got a shot."
