The Woodlands (Texas) High School's Randy Knust returned from Spring Break with his version of a lottery ticket.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver snagged his first offer from SMU upon returning from a trip to Las Vegas last week.
"We got home and the offer was in the mail," father Randy Knust said. "He was thrilled to get his first offer. Coach (June) Jones is building something special there and it's a receivers' dream to play in that offense. He's ecstatic and we will be visiting the campus soon."
Knust will be attending Rice University's junior day this weekend with hopes of his second offer. He has already been to Texas A&M, Houston, Texas Tech and LSU's junior days and will be attending Nebraska's spring game in months to come.
He was a second-team, all-district selection as a junior in limited action after suffering a turf toe injury, but averaged nearly 30-yards per reception.
"Randy will probably evaluate everything after the spring and make a decision shortly after," he said. "He just wants to make sure he's making the right decision for himself."
Knust and offensive lineman Chad Lindsay will attract a lot of attention during the spring football recruiting as Highlanders with early offers.
