Klein (Texas) Collins has made its mark on the Houston area the past two seasons by having one of the top defenses in the state of Texas. Prospects such as Charles Jackson and David Santos have helped the defense lead the Tigers to back-to-back district championships.
However, the offense is getting more attention this season. Running back Shane Rhodes has committed to Boise State and quarterback Tyler Stehling has seen his stock rise as well with a trio of early offers.
"I have a couple of offers," the 6-foot-6, 195-pound Stehling said. "Colorado, Arizona and Louisville have offered me. Pretty much all of them came during spring ball.

"They all sort of came as a surprise to me. Louisville offered me and I hadn't really even talked to them before that. The other ones, I had talked to a little bit before that."
A couple of other programs could soon add their names to Stehling's offer list soon.
"I've been talking to a few other schools as well," he said. "I think Rice is close (to offering). I also talked to Arkansas and Mississippi State recently. They called me to talk."
Stehling plans to hit the camp circuit this summer as well as take a couple of unofficial visits.
"I'm going to try and take a visit to Arizona and to Louisville this summer," he said. "I'm going to camps at Rice, Oklahoma State, TCU and one other camp as well."
Though Stehling maintains that he is still considering every school he admits that a pair of in-state programs has his attention at the moment.
"I like Rice," he said. "I also like TCU but I don't know if they're signing another quarterback or not. Those are pretty much the schools on top right now."
Stehling completed 61-percent of his passes as a junior, throwing for 1,457 yards and 13 touchdowns.
