North Shore prospects need a challenge

Houston North Shore prospects Kevin Rutland and Chykie Brown are getting bored. Outscoring opponents 105-16 and being pulled out of the game midway through the second quarter will do that to you.
"I'm just hoping The Woodlands will be better than the first two teams we've played," Rutland said. "It's been kind of boring sitting on the sideline."
Rutland has one catch for 17 yards and has yet to be used on the defensive side of the ball.
"I'm not sure why I've not played cornerback," he said. "I haven't had much of an opportunity on offense either. I should get more time this weekend."
Rutland has been offered by Kansas State as a defensive back and has received calls from Oklahoma State, UTEP and Rice this week.
"I like Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, but they have not offered," he said. "I'm going to wait it out a while and see what happens."
Brown shares the same sentiments as Rutland.
"Teams aren't throwing at me," he said. "That should change this weekend. I'm going to be matched up with Kyle Drabek and he's going to get tired of seeing my number in his face. I'm up to the challenge."
While Brown is content with his verbal commitment to Texas, he is being contacted by one special Pac-10 school in particular.
"USC is calling a lot," he said. "That's far for me but I might take a visit over there. They really want me to set one up."
