Destrehan 2019 RB Talks A&M, LSU, SEC & Recruiting

Destrehan 2019 running back John Emery talks about his impressive list of early offers and what programs have shown heavy interest lately.

Every athlete has the choice of where they will attend college, and for Destrehan 2019 running back John Emery, when the recruiting process is all said and done, he will have quite the list of top programs to select from.

Emery holds offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, Kansas, LSU, Mississippi, Nicholls State, North Carolina, and Tennessee. The 6-foot, 200-pound running back said he has a good relationship with LSU coaches, because they have reached out the most.

Emery may already have an elite list of early offers, but he made it clear he is not going to rush the process.

“I’m just a sophomore so I have two years,” said Emery. “I’m going to wait it out. I still have to look at all of the depth charts, teams, the school and recruiting class that they are getting. I just have to look at a lot of stuff. I don’t want to commit too early like some of these other guys are doing, but just wait it out. Right now I am focused on school and staying healthy.”

Destrehan High School will start spring football in just a few days and will go until the middle of May. Destrehan coaching staff expects a number of college programs to stop in to see Emery and teammate Quinton Torbor; several SEC programs and even West Coast for example.

“I’ve heard from USC, Mississippi State and Texas A&M reaching out,” said Emery. “Oh and yesterday OSU, Oklahoma State. That’s really about it…I’ve never really had interest in OSU, but they’ve had guys like Barry Sanders come from OSU; some nice running backs and I’d like to look into that,” said Emery. “I’ve always been a fan of USC. That would be a dream school. Texas A&M, yes I’ve heard big things about them; players who have gone into the league. These are big schools and I am truly blessed.”

Emery admitted that he does know some about the Aggies offense, but still wants to do his research more specifically on their running game.

“I’ve never really looked at the running backs at Texas A&M,” said Emery. “I’ve really just looked at the wide receivers. I know a couple of the guys; Mike Evans and Speedy Noil. I know a couple of the guys that came from Texas A&M. I will really have to look into and do my research on Texas A&M.”
