Fort Bend Dulles coach Jim Creech can't remember offers piling up in his office this early in many years.
"It's crazy these days," Creech said. "Everybody wants to get their recruiting done early. That's fine with me. I know Brandon Herron got an offer from Utah off a tape a couple of months ago."
Creech is blessed with three Division I prospects, one who is as hot as anyone in the state of Texas.
"Brandon is a carnival fair freak," Creech said. "There is not a drill that a coach put him through the he can't do better than anyone else. He goes this weekend to the Texas camp, and if he's offered he'll come home a Longhorn."
"He's played down on the defensive line and at safety for us," he said. "He can play anywhere but he'll be at linebacker this year. He's 6-2, 200-pounds, who can run a 4.5, 40-yard dash with a wingspan of 80-inches. You can't cheat on that."
LSU jumped into the Herron sweepstakes this week but it could be too late. Texas defensive coordinator Gene Chizik spent the whole spring game watching Herron.
Herron isn't the only prospect at Dulles. Quarterback Cotton Turner received an offer from Tulane and is visiting Central Florida this weekend. Vanderbilt, Louisiana Tech and SMU are also nearing.
"I'm surprised that Cotton hasn't received the interest that Brandon has," Creech said. "He is a great pocket passer, but he's not 6-5. And he's not a blazer, he's just accurate quarterback who can lead on offense."
Cornerback Troy Woolfolk has also been offered by Houston and Michigan, but suffered an injury during the spring. The 10.4, 100-meter track star reached the regional track meet last month.
"Schools can't tell if he's a track kid playing football or a football kid who can run track," Creech said.
