Boasting one of the most prolific offenses in the city of Houston, Dulles High School is getting superior production out of their playmakers.
Rolling up 389.8 yards a game, Dulles is led by a bevy of skill players. Senior quarterback Cotton Turner directs the bunch, throwing for 1,359 yards and 16 touchdowns.
Turner (6-2, 200-pounds) joins Bellaire quarterback Max Flinn as enigmas in the recruiting game. Neither have offers, but both have the size and experience to run a college spread offense. Turner is the city's leader in passing, while Flinn ranks a close second.
"I don't know what these colleges want," Dulles coach Jim Creech said. "Cotton is not a real running quarterback because that is not what we do. He makes great decisions and runs our offense to near perfection."
Tulane was hot for Turner before receiving a commitment early this fall. Louisiana Tech and Tulsa are showing interest, but have shown nothing in writing.
Running back Jonathan Thomas (5-10, 205-pounds) has been offered by Louisiana-Lafayette and is receiving interest from TCU. Thomas is a bullish runner with good hands.
Junior Darryl Stonum (6-2, 195-pounds) is Turner's favorite target and leads the city in receiving with 583 yards on 23 catches, including seven touchdowns.
"Stonum is a freak," Creech said. "He's incredible. He's a playmaker like I've never seen. He' brings everything to the table and will be a big time prospect next year."
While the offense has much to do with the team's 4-1 record, the defense is holding its own. Michigan-commit Troy Wolfolk and linebacker Brandon Herron are leading the defense and are national prospects.
"Troy is solid to Michigan," Creech said. "Brandon likes Nebraska and Oklahoma State. He's got a hamstring injury and hasn't been able to do a lot lately."
