With the nickname of a Muppet Show character, Pearland's Foswhitt Whittaker put up make-believe numbers as a junior and will be one of Houston's most highly recruited prospects next season.
He received his first official offer from Oklahoma State last weekend.
"Schools who are doing some junior recruiting are looking at him," Pearland coach Tony Heath said. "From OSU to Notre Dame to Texas A&M, they all like him."

Whittaker was Houston's second leading rusher with 1,608 yards on 193 carries, which included 18 touchdowns on an undefeated team during the regular season.
"He's not a great big guy, but an incredibly elusive runner," Heath said. "He makes tremendous cuts and sees the cutback lanes very well. He has Brandon Roberson's (Northwestern) size and speed, but runs downhill like Anthony Evans (Houston). He just doesn't take a square hit either."
What's also attractive is that Whittaker is a National Honor Society student and has been running competitive track since his was six years old.
This kid really is make-believe.
