No worries for Arlington LB Douglas

When you're a 6-foot-2 outside linebacker, it's hard to slip through the cracks.

That's why Arlington junior outside linebacker Sammy Douglas isn't worried about his lack of scholarship offers so far.

"I've still got to take my SATs, so I'm not too worried about that," Douglas said about his recruiting status.

"Right now, I've been getting letters from LSU and Arkansas, and they both want me to go to a junior day."

Douglas visited TCU's campus twice last year to catch a couple games and despite the pair of visits, Douglas hasn't started talking to TCU yet. But he is talking to a pair of new Big 12 foes in Baylor and Kansas.

He is also interested in Texas and Oklahoma.

"I just like their stadium and everything about them," Douglas said of Texas. "When I was a kid and my brother and I played the NCAA video games, we always wanted to be Texas."

Wherever he winds up, Douglas wants to play linebacker. He has no desire to play anywhere else on the field and the Colts haven't tried him anywhere else.

And who would want to move him after he had 148 tackles, six sacks, four forced fumbles and five recovered on the way to being named first-team all-district for 4-5A last season.

Douglas' friendship with a pair of recent recruits has kept him interested in TCU.

"I have two friends at TCU one that recently committed in Kolby Listenbee (2012 class)," Douglas said. "The other is Laderice Sanders (signed in 2011 class)."

Sanders is an inside linebacker for the Frogs and was Douglas' linebacking corps mate for the Colts. Douglas went head to head with Listenbee, who played quarterback for Arlington Bowie, last season.
