Another day came and went on Monday, and another offer was extended for one of coach Joey McGuire's players in Cedar Hill, Texas. In case you've not been keeping track in the last week eight scholarships were handed out to five of McGuire's players.
According to McGuire, the latest offer came on Monday when Missouri stepped up and offered outside linebacker Chris Francis. The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder also picked up offers last week on Tuesday and Thursday from Rice and UTEP.
Receiver William Cole (5-11, 164) picked up an offer from Central Florida last week. UCF also offered a scholarship to offensive tackle John Jones (6-5, 280). Jones, who looked good at the NIKE Training Camp, also recently added an offer from UTEP.

Lighting fast receiver Romie Blaylock picked up an UTEP offer last week and also took an unofficial visit to Texas Tech while at a track meet in Lubbock, Texas. Blaylock is one of the fastest rising slot receivers in Texas, and don't be surprised if he ends up with some major Big 12 offers by the end of summer.
Then there is the case of Darrion Weems.
The 6-foot-6, 285-pounder is a Hurricane Katrina evacuee that played his junior season at Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft and earned pre-evaluation Rivals100 honors. Weems had recently picked up an Oregon offer, but late last week Boston College came through with an offer.
Monday was Weems first official practice with Cedar Hill and his new coach said he liked what he saw.
"The Weems kid looked good," McGuire said. "He's got a shot to be really something special."
