As of now, Tre Flowers isn’t thinking too much about recruiting. He’s getting ready and preparing himself for spring camp.
“Things have been going pretty good,” said Flowers. “We’ve been going over a lot of stuff in football and we’ll be starting our spring season pretty soon.”
For the first time in his high school football career, Flowers will play both offense and defense.
“I’m going to play both sides of the ball and will be playing receiver this year on offense,” said Flowers. “I didn’t play receiver last year, just safety. I’ll do whatever will make the team better, sir.”
At 6 feet 2 inches and 180 pounds, Flowers’ size and speed will be used on the outside.
“They told me that I’m going to play outside receiver,” he said. “I can use my speed on the outside.”
Flowers plans on attending BYU’s Junior Day over the summer and wants to bring close friend and teammate Jarveon Williams.
“He’s going to go both ways also,” said Flowers. “He’ll be playing running back this year and safety. He’s getting some looks but he doesn’t have any offers yet.”
Members of the Cougar coaching staff plan on heading down to Texas soon to watch Flowers while Judson runs through a spring practice. They’ll be able to get a better look at both Flowers and Williams.
“They said to keep in touch and that they’ll be down here for spring to watch me a little bit more,” Flowers said. “Other than that I haven’t really talked to them too much.”
Flowers not only plays multiple positions in football, but he also runs track. He’ll be participating in the 200 meters, 4x100 relay, 4x200 relay and long jump events.
“I’m just getting ready for track this year,” he said. “I ran a 22.1 in the first week of the 200 times. I don’t know what my times are in the relays. In the long jump, my best is a 23.5.”
Flowers’ two top schools are BYU and Kansas State. While he hasn’t spoken much to BYU coaches – which makes sense given BYU just recently finished their spring camp – he hasn’t spoken much to Kansas State either.
“I’ve just been taking it easy right now and haven’t really spoken much to BYU or Kansas State,” said Flowers. “I’m probably going to call them on Monday. When I do reach them they always make time for me and it’s been good.”
Flowers said neither of the two schools holds an edge over the other.
“BYU and Kansas state are still my two top schools,” Flowers said. “They’re about neck and neck right now.”
Meanwhile, there are some other schools showing interest in Flowers.
“Baylor and TCU are showing interest in me,” said Flowers. “They kind of told me the same thing and that’s to stay in touch and they’ll be down here in the spring. That’s pretty much about it.”
When Flowers attends BYU’s Junior Day, he will do so with his parents.
“I think it will be a good thing and I’m looking forward to heading on back down there again.”
