A new name emerges in Florida (interview by Will Baizer)

submitted Today, 11:55 AM in Recruiting By Will Baizer

If the name KJ Sails, Jr. is unfamiliar, don’t worry. Until he tweeted that UT is recruiting him, most Texas fans had no idea who he is.

The 2016 3-star defensive back from Gibsonton, FL plays free safety for East Bay HS , but is listed by most recruiting services at corner. Sails has formal scholarship offers from more than 20 schools, and after watching the Tampa-area bluechip’s highlight reel, it is evident why Charlie Strong is dipping back into Florida for more high school talent .

Sails is the definition of a ball hawk and packs a punch on receivers that dare make a play on his side of the field. For his size (5’11”, 170 pounds), Sails plays a very physical brand of football. His junior highlights are HERE.

I caught up with Sails right after East Bay finished practicing to gauge his interest in Texas:

Texas is recruiting you “hard.” What does that entail?

KJ: I meant that they should be offering me soon.

Which coach has been talking to you about getting an offer?

KJ: Coach Vaughn - I'm waiting on them to get back with me.

Any plans to visit Texas?

KJ: Most likely that's my plan.

Are you looking to go to any game in particular?

KJ: Not yet.

Have you talked to any other guys in Florida getting recruited by Texas like Shemar Smith?

KJ: No sir.

Where would a Texas offer stand in your current offers?

KJ: They would be in my top 5.

What have the Texas coaches said other than talking about an offer?

KJ: I just started talking to him a couple days ago haven't talked to him since then.

You're a new name for Longhorn fans…

KJ: I do love the state of Texas. I'm trying to get coach Vaughns number.

If not by phone, how have you and Coach Vaughn been communicating?

KJ: He hmu in Twitter.

I understand you're good friends with Armunz Mathews?

KJ: Yes sir.

Is it important to you two to go to the same school?

KJ: Lol doesn't matter.

If that’s the case, what would the Longhorns need to do to get them to be your number 1 choice?

KJ: I have to visit.
