2014 four-star Texas safety Arrion Springs received the first offer in his recruitment from Texas Tech last month, and he has recently named an early top three in USC, Florida, and Oregon. Springs grew up a huge USC fan, and the memory of the National Championship loss against Texas still lingers. In fact, he declined a camp invitation to the school, simply because he doesn’t like Texas.
Teams interested in Arrion Springs include Oklahoma, Florida State, Miami, LSU, TCU, Baylor, and California. He has camped at both TCU and Baylor, and the Bears are expected to be involved in his recruitment later on.
The 5’11″, 187 pound star for Roosevelt High in San Antonio, Texas runs a terrific 4.37 forty yard dash with about a 31-inch vertical. Springs is a strong player who is excellent in press coverage and is one of the best coverage safeties in the 2014 class. However, his ball skills could use some work.
Florida is expected to be visiting Arrion Springs soon, and he had an impressive camp in with the Gators this summer. The lone non-Pac-12 team in his top three, UF could be the first team in Springs’s top three to offer him. Texas Tech isn’t in his top three, but they are a team he is interested in. Springs likes Oregon, and I should also note that Florida is recruiting Springs as a cornerback; he can good CB if he works on his ball skills.
Last season, Springs recorded 75 tackles and is the top prospect in San Antoino. He has been a standout at many camps and combines, so be sure to keep him on your radar going forward, as he is one of the the best DB recruits in Texas.
