Despite being in the middle of one of the most fertile recruiting grounds in the entire country, Houston Furr has not seen many prospects come through its doors as of late. That has changed this year though.
Nomluis Fruge did a little bit of everything for the Brahmas this year, playing running back, wide receiver, defensive end, linebacker, safety and kick returner and colleges took notice. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior recently picked up his first offer.
"I've been hearing from some schools," Fruge said. "I received my first offer as well. North Texas offered me a full scholarship. I talked to their coach and he told me they were offering me a full scholarship."

In addition to the Mean Green a couple of other programs have been in contact with Fruge as well.
"I've also talked to Oregon State and Houston," he said. "They really haven't shown me as much interest yet as North Texas has though."
Fruge could project to a number of positions but he feels most suited for the defensive side of the ball.
"I'm really being looked at as an athlete and I can play anywhere on the defense pretty much," he said. "I probably prefer d-end and outside linebacker right now. I like being able to rush the quarterback."
Fruge admits a local school has piqued his interest early in the process.
"The school that I like the most right now is probably Houston," he said. "My dream school would be UT but that's kind of high hopes.
"UH is close to home. It's a really nice school and they have a really nice football team. My mom would be able to come see all my football games if I went there too."
