Tyler (Texas) Lee wide receiver Jacob Amie was informed by his coach this past week, that new scholarship offers were on the way from several schools. His mailbox should be full soon of those but there also could be more on the way.
The 6-foot-3, 219-pounder has garnered heavy interest early in the recruiting process, but offers had not come. The spring evaluation of college coaches changed that for Amie and he's not claiming a lot of options.
"Yeah I got a couple of new ones," Amie said. "I have Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Kansas State, I believe Rice, and Texas A&M. Coach Owens told me about all those. He just called me into his office last Wednesday and told me everybody that was offering me.
"He said that I had full rides to all of these places if I wanted it."
Colorado State made a phone call to Amie this afternoon in the first day where coaches are allowed to make one phone call to a prospect during the contact period. Missouri also should be calling according to the talented receiver. UCLA has come by the school and could also be pulling the trigger on an offer soon.
One of the schools that have offered is leading the rest for Amie.
"I would have to say Texas Tech is," Amie said about his favorite. "I just like their whole offensive scheme. If you want to play in that scheme, you've got to be smart. The way they spread the ball out, I feel like I'd fit into that pretty well."
UCLA and Oklahoma State are two other schools also high on his list, but for different reasons.
"I couldn't tell you why I like OSU, but I just like them," he said. "That was my favorite school growing up. UCLA throws the ball, so I like their offense."
Another school that has recently been showing interest has been Texas.
"I found out that their receivers coach is going to come up to the school on Friday," he said.
As for visits, Amie says he'd like to visit Texas Tech, Texas, Oklahoma State, and UCLA but has nothing planned as of yet.
