While Houston Jersey Village running back Anthony Bibbs had some significant momentum after picking up offers from Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Nebraska, the running back suffered a minor set back over the past couple of months.
Bibbs underwent surgery on an injured shoulder, which ended his track season and could have him on the sidelines when spring football begins.
"I haven't decided if we'll keep him out just as a precaution," Falcon coach David Snokhous said. "He's a talented guy but we want to make sure he's healthy after the spring. We want to get him the ball 25 times a game next year and showcase him."
A varsity starter since his sophomore year, Bibbs tallied over 1,300 yards rushing for eight touchdowns as well as amassing over 200 yards receiving as a junior.
Even if Bibbs sits out for the spring, Jersey Village has two impressive class of 2007 prospects in Tim Benford and Corey Wright.
Benford (6-4, 230-pounds) is slated to play defensive end, but Snokhous thinks his future is on the offensive line in college.
"Tim is out of basketball now and is getting better and stronger," Snokhous said. "He's a talented kid and when scouts see him in the spring his stock will rise. Same goes for Corey Wright."
