Rosser offensive pair emerge with offers

If there was any question about Scurry (Texas) Rosser's offense this coming fall, there are two answers that coach Virgil Crow will answer to that question.
They are his two big time offensive weapons in big wide receiver, the 6-foot-5, 205-pound Phillip Burley and the athletic running back D' Marcus Lang who can do it all. Both of his star players are out from under the radar according to Crow.
"The secret is out on these guys," Crow said. "Kansas just came by about Burley and said an offer is on the way. To be honest I've had 15 Division I schools come through my office in the last three weeks."
Burley obviously has the frame combined with 4.5-second 40-yard dash speed and his running back Lang is so talented some schools are looking at him on defensive at an outside linebacker spot.
Crow, however, believes both of his top notch talents will stay on offense during their college career.
"Yeah, I really see Lang staying on offense because you've got a school like Iowa State who feels he is the top guy on their list for running back," Crow said. "He can do it all though because he's got passing and receiving numbers from last year and he didn't play football before that since his 8th grade year."
"He's come in, built a relationship, and last year we went to an I-formation to get him the ball."
Now that Crow has a quarterback with passing capabilities, Burley will be getting more of a feature in this offense as well.
Plainly put, the recruiting is picking up and these two guys will have plenty of options come the visits time frame – something the head coach has really helped them with now that offers are heading their way.
"The one thing I've let them know about is that there won't be a commitment without a visit," he said. "We're getting it narrowed down to three or five schools they'd like to see and go from there."
