Last year, Scurry (Texas) Scurry-Rosser head coach Virgil Crow had two top players in the state in Phillip Burley and D'Marcus Lang. The 2007 class is highlighted by an offensive lineman in Chad Mullen continuing the tradition of Division I talent.
Mullen, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive tackle, is starting to hear from schools around the Big 12 and is patiently awaiting his first offer to come.
"I've been looking a lot at Oklahoma State and Texas A&M," Mullen said. "I can't even begin to name all the schools sending me mail though. It's from all over. But, OSU seems like they have a good school and I like the tradition at A&M."
As for junior days or visits, Mullen hasn't done that yet. His schedule in baseball has kept him quite busy.
Mullen does want to take in some camps this summer.
"Yeah A&M and OSU will probably be where I go for camps," he said. "We've been doing a lot at school with off-season workouts for football and lifting weights."
Mullen's hard working attitude is what has gotten him far.
"I give everything that I have," he said. "No matter if it's practice or on the field, I'm always pushing as hard as possible 100 percent of the time."
