Though private schools in the state of Texas do not produce nearly as many college prospects as their public counterparts, they can always be counted on to provide a few hidden gems. One such case in the class of 2012 is Beaumont (Texas) Kelly wide receiver Nick Schrapps.
The 6-foot-3, 197-pound prospect recently put on a very good showing at the Houston Nike Football Training Camp and, since that time, he has picked up a pair of offers.
"I got my first offer from North Texas last Wednesday," Schrapps said on Sunday evening. "Then I got one from Air Force just yesterday."
Schrapps had a chance to check out one of those programs in person this weekend.
"I went to North Texas' camp today," he said. "It went really well, actually. I did well and I got to meet the coaches. I liked the coaches a lot. It was overall a really good experience."
A few more trips on the horizon as well.
"I'm going to Bowling Green on (June) 18 and Colorado on (June) 19 for camps," Schrapps said. "The week after, I'm headed to Stanford. That's all the ones I have planned for sure right now."
Schrapps feels he could be close to a couple more offers.
"Bowling Green seems to be really interested," he said. "They wanted me to come to camp because they don't really recruit Texas. I sent them my highlight tape but the only chance for them to see me live was for me to go up there for camp.
"I'm going to Colorado's senior elite camp. They invited me to that and they seem pretty interested as well. They haven't said anything for sure about an offer but we'll see."
Though he remains open to all suitors, Schrapps does admit that an in-state program has made a very positive impression on him.
"I don't really have a dream school or anything," he said. "I'm just taking the process how it comes. I was really impressed with North Texas though. I really liked the facilities and the coaches were great. I had a really good experience there today."
Schrapps, who also plays safety for Kelly, caught 68 passes for 718 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.
