Pearland LB is learning more about UH

Pearland (Texas) linebacker Kendall Ehrlich got to take part in the ultimate accomplishment last season as he helped lead the Oilers of Pearland High School to an undefeated state championship season. The talented junior has seen that success carry over to the early recruiting process.

Ehrlich now holds three offers and he is starting to get a feel for the process. He also attended his first offseason camp last Saturday taking part in the Under Armour camp held at Houston's Spring Westfield High School. Like his junior season, Ehrlich had success and wasted little time proving he belonged.

"Right now I have gotten offers from Boise State, Iowa State and Houston," said the 6-foot-2, 200 pound linebacker. "I am also starting to hear from Arkansas and Texas A&M."

The talented defender has been getting more familiar with Houston in the last month since picking up the scholarship offer and says defensive scheme does not really matter to him at this point.

"I got to go out to one of Houston's spring game a couple weeks ago," he said. "I like coach (Tony) Levine he is the coach I have been dealing with over at Houston. He is a nice guy. I am also going to be out at their spring game next Saturday too."

"I don't really have a preference right now as far as defense goes, he added. "We run a 4-2-5 defense at my school so I'm all for a 3-4 if that's where I end up."

After such a successful season for the Oilers last year Ehrlich knows that expectations will be high. Despite losing a lot of skill guys from last year's team he thinks they can defend their title.

"Well, hopefully we can just do like we did last year", said the all-district linebacker. "We will have eight starters coming back on defense next year so we just need to go out and win games."

Ehrlich was selected to the 22-5A All District team following last season's standout performance and was selected to the Houston Chronicle All-Greater Houston team as well

The Oilers start spring workouts up on April 28th and Ehrlich will look to help them build on last season's state championship.
