Things are still moving along for Rusk, Texas running back Justin Sturns. The talented running back wishes it would just move a little quicker on the recruiting side.
The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder still holds just one scholarship offer from Tennessee, but says that his hopes are high for three other teams that have been sending a lot of mail. Sturns, who also may play baseball, says that he's working hard in the classroom to speed things up.
Right now, his team is the only thing on his mind.
"You can see our team bond in practice," Sturns said. "Everybody is into it out there and we've got the team to make a big run."
Texas Tech, TCU, and Nebraska have been showing Sturns the most love as of late.
"I really would like an offer from Nebraska because they were on me pretty early," Sturns said. "My old teammate Cody Glenn is up there and he they said that if you're good enough to play your first year, you can play."
As for visits this fall, Sturns says he's got a few in mind that he'd like to set up.
"I know I want to go to Nebraska for a visit and hopefully Texas Tech," Sturns said. "Texas A&M is a school I want to visit and of course Tennessee because they gave me my first offer, so I'm looking at them."
Sturns is rated as the No. 26 running back prospect in the country and the No. 51 overall prospect in Texas.
