Haltom (Texas) wide receiver Jermey Brent seemed to be like teammate Anthony Lewis with a recruiting process going through the roof, but he was almost close to ending it right then and there just a few days ago.
The offers came in and all of a sudden, the 6-foot-5, 200-pound receiver had a full plate of options before him. Kansas State, Houston, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Washington State, and Wyoming are all offers on the table. One team started to stick out and he about pulled the trigger on a commitment.
"My coaches and I have been talking about Kansas State lately," Brent said about his top team. "We've decided to wait until some of the games start before we do anything though now."

But, Brent admits he was close.
"Yeah, I was telling them that K-State was the school I had the most interest in and we were talking about maybe just committing," said Brent, the No. 53 rated wide receiver in the nation. "I just want to wait and see now and not do anything early."
Now that he has pulled back on his commitment timeframe, what's next?
"I'm going to take some trips," Brent said. "I haven't set them up yet. Kansas State is most likely going to get one but I'm not sure who else out of all the offers. Mississippi State and Wyoming just offered now too."
The three-star, big-framed receiver is taking his time. That has pushed back his final decision until the end of the season.
Brent is rated as the No. 66 overall prospect in Texas.
