Houston-area power Katy (Texas) High School is up to their old ways. Ranked fifth in the state, the Tigers are rolling at 5-0 on the season.
A punishing defense and a balanced offense that can wear you out with junior running back Aundre Dean or hit the homerun with wide-out Michael Fuda.
Dean (6-0, 185-pounds) is pounding defenses with slashing and durable style. While he is without an early offer, Dean will garner several as the year progresses.
"He's getting a lot of mail," Katy coach Gary Joseph said. "He is a great competitor and wants the ball. He doesn't go down on the first hit and he can catch the ball."
After starting as a sophomore, Dean has rushed for 623 yards on 114 carries as a junior and will be one of the area's top recruits as a senior.
Fuda (6-0, 180-pounds) has also started since his sophomore season and has been offered by New Mexico State.
"Michael is a Jordan Shipley-type receiver," Joseph said. "He has that kind of speed and and will catch the ball in traffic. He has a knack for making big plays and will be a steal for some college."
