Sam Houston State Weekend: Recruiting Update

This weekend head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff look to address immediate needs for their 2013 team. The Aggies will bring in several top JUCO playmakers for Official Visits as they look to fill the 4-5 remaining slots for January enrollees.

Kelly Lambert

Jeremiah Stuckey

The 6'6" 280-pound tackle from City College of San Francisco was a full qualifier out of high school. After greyshirting his first year, the 18 year old has three years of eligibility remaining. Definitely a late-bloomer, the ceiling on Stuckey is very high. With the probability of losing one tackle (my opinion), and the chance to lose both, offensive tackle is definitely a position that needs to be addressed further.

When I watched his tape, I was immediately impressed with his run blocking out of a two-point stance. He is physical at the point of attack and continues to drive his feet to move guys off the ball. His pass protection was good and he didn't seem to have too much trouble with the speed rush off the end.

Cameron Clear

Coming out of high school, Clear was rated as the #1 player in the state of Tennessee and the #10 tight-end in the country. After originally signing with the Vols, Cameron was dismissed from the program last May after stealing a laptop. At 6'6" 275-pounds, Clear is a Martellus Bennett clone with his obvious size mismatch for defenders and blocking ability. Rated as the 16th overall JUCO player in the country by's composite ranking, Clear has a final three of A&M, Ole Miss, and Oklahoma. After his visit this weekend, he will follow it up with a trip to Norman.

A teammate of Clear's at Arizona Western Community College, the 6'2" 230-pound linebacker will also make the trip to College Station this weekend. The Cedar Hill native projects as a Mike or Will linebacker for the Aggies in my opinion. With numerous players already committed at those positions and the Aggies still in the race for a couple blue-chip high school seniors, it will be interesting to see how Coach Sumlin proceeds.

Za'Darius Smith

The 6'6" 250-pound defensive end from East Mississippi Community College would be the top player left on my board. If Demontre Moore decides to get paid this spring (my opinion is he will), Smith will fill a suddenly huge need. The elite pass rusher is a 4-star and ranked as the #1 JUCO weakside defensive-end in the country according to Composite Ranking.

Ja'quay Williams

The four-star wide receiver from Sandy Creek, Georgia signed with the Auburn Tigers last year. After failing to qualify, he decided to enroll in prep school, Fork Union Military Academy instead of going the junior college route. Williams remains committed to the Tigers but will also visit the Georgia Bulldogs next weekend. Despite several commitments already at the position, the 6'3" star is good enough that I would expect them to take him if he wants to come to Aggieland.

Tony Stevens

Stevens will be the second four-star receiver on campus this week. The Florida high school senior originally committed to the Florida State Seminoles back in February but has decommitted and re-committed several times. He is currently a Seminole commit but also has an Ohio State visit planned after returning from College Station. The 6'3" wide out has impressive speed for his size and is ranked as the 18th wide receiver in the nation by
