If there is a guy making a case for a bump in the updated September player rankings it would be Haltom, Texas, receiver Jermey Brent.
The 6-foot-5, 200-pound receiver had nine catches for 143-yards and three touchdowns in Friday night's 49-42 victory over Arlington Martin. In his team's first game, he had four receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown score.
"It just seems like everything is working now," Brent, who is ranked as the No. 66 player in Texas and a three-star prospect, said. "Everything we do works, and I've worked hard to make sure that it stays that way."
Brent's three touchdown receptions came three different ways on Friday.
"The first one was a 25-yard post," Brent said. "I was single-covered, and I just beat the guy. The second one was just a 30-yard pass, but I broke a tackle and then ended up taking it 65-yards for the score. On the third one it was a 15-yard fade into the corner where I caught it over everybody."
Brent said with the success on the field – Haltom is 2-0 – recruiting has kind of slipped his mind. He still says Kansas State is his leader, but he's not ready to commit like he was at one point this summer.
"They're still up there," he said. "That's not changed. I like coach (Bob) Stanely and the way they use their receivers, but I'm going to wait it out because I'm so focused on the season."
Houston, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Washington State and Wyoming are also on his list. Brent, however, said he's not received a phone call yet from any team since the calling period began last Thursday.
