When it comes to prospects that are making moves with college coaches, one prospect in the state of Texas that has shot up through the roof the last month and a half has been Port Arthur Memorial cornerback Danny Gorrer
Gorrer, who is 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, already had scholarship offers on the table from Oklahoma State and LSU, but a stellar performance at the Texas 7-on-7 State Championship in College Station, Texas, opened the eyes up of the Texas A&M coaching staff. And after talking with Aggie assistant Stan Eggen last week, it appears that Gorrer believes he has a scholarship offer from A&M.
“He told me they were offering me and wanted me to come play football and also maybe run track for them,” Gorrer said. “I was excited to hear about the offer and they’re definitely on my list, but I’m not closing the door on anybody.”

Gorrer said he also talked with the Oklahoma State coaches this week and the Cowboys asked him if he would commit to them, but he told them that he just couldn’t yet.
“I told them that I need to talk things over with my mother and I didn’t want to miss out on something that might happen with another school,” Gorrer said. “I really like Oklahoma State and they were the first team on me hard, but like with A&M, I just don’t know if I’m ready to say I’m only with one team right now.”
Gorrer said Texas, Alabama and Oklahoma have also remained in contact through mail and he’s hoping to earn offers also from them with an early season strong performance against Smithson Valley on Friday night in Bryan.
“It’s going to be a big battle,” Gorrer said. “We just have to come together as a team and be ready for what they throw at us. I know that I’ve worked hard all summer for this, and I’m going to do what it takes to help the team win.”
But Gorrer admits that he’s afraid teams won’t throw his direction.
“I’m hoping they will,” the two-star prospect said. “But I guess if they don’t then I’ll have to find other ways to make an impact.”
