Rocket Recruiting Roundup
This year the Rockets have offered Brandon Banks, Bakari Bussey, James O'Quinn, and Briggs Orsbon.
Brandon Banks is a 3 star Junior College WR who currently plays for Bakersfield in California. At only 5'8" 160 pounds, size is a major issue, however, Banks does pose 4.4 speed which with his size and speed could make him a perfect candidate for a slot position receiver. He also holds offers from Kansas State, East Carolina, and San Jose St.
Bakari Bussey is a senior receiver from West Chester, OH. He recently trimmed his list to 3 schools and those were Toledo, Ohio, and Miami University. He stands in at 6'2", 195 lbs. with blazing 4.4 speed and good power numbers, maxing his bench at 230 pounds. His other offers come from Miami University and Indiana, though he has eliminated Indiana from contention for his services.
James O'Quinn is a 6'2" 170 pound receiver from Vandergrift, PA. His speed at the position leaves something to be desired as he checks in with 4.6 speed. He currently holds offers from the Rockets, as well as Buffalo. However, North Carolina, Connecticut, and Pittsburgh have been showing interest in O'Quinn.
Briggs Orsbon is probably the most recognizable name on the receiver list for the Rockets. The 6 foot 180 pound receiver from Convoy, OH boasts a number of offers from Division 1 programs such as Toledo, Akron, Ball St., Bowling Green, Ohio, and Air Force and he's hoping to hear good news from Purdue. He recently narrowed down to a top 4 which includes Akron, Ball St., Bowling Green and Toledo. The speedy 4.4 receiver ended up playing QB for his senior season and reports 1,000 yards passing and 1,500 rushing yards.
