Houston (Texas) Jersey Village running back Anthony Bibbs is reminding his coach and some college recruiters of another celebrated Falcon running back - Selvin Young of the University of Texas.
Bibbs (5-10, 180 pounds) rushed for over 1,200 yards with a slashing style that impressed one Big 12 offensive coordinator enough to offer the young junior. Oklahoma State's Larry Fedora and Joe DeForest attended off-season workouts at Jersey Village and had seen enough to offer Bibbs.
"He's a little different than Selvin because Selvin had a lot of growing up to do," Jersey Village coach David Snokhous said. "He might be a little better blocker than Selvin also. He's got a chance to be a great back."
With his first offer coming from the Cowboys other should follow, but Bibbs' admiration for Oklahoma State is mutual.
"I really like Oklahoma State," Bibbs said. "Patrick Lavine, who played here, is playing great for them. They also just got a commitment from Jacoby Reed, who's my teammate. I like the attention they are showing me."
To stay in shape this spring, Bibbs will be running the 4x100 relay, the 4x200 relay and the 200-meter dash for his track team.
Lucky for Snokhous, Bibbs is not the only Division I Falcon flying around campus. While they are both in the basketball program, Tim Benford (6-4, 230 pounds) and Corey Wright (6-3, 255 pounds) are two imposing defensive linemen.
"I'm not sure they know how good they could be," Snokhous said. "They certainly have the size and speed."
Kicker Brian Davis is one of the top kickers in the state of Texas and will be participating in the Lone Star Kicking Challenge this spring. He's hit a 50-yarder in a game and has recorded shots from 68 yards in practice.
