Wylie (Texas) is not too far removed from a run to the state championship game and the Pirates made it to the Class 4A semifinals a year ago. A lot is expected of the team in 2011 due to the fact that a strong group of seniors returns.
The leader of that group is offensive tackle Kyle Fuller. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound prospect has picked up more than 20 offers and they are still pouring in. Two Big Ten programs have added their names to the list.
"Iowa is my most recent offer," Fuller said. "I've gotten some other new ones too. Michigan State is another school that I've been told has offered."

Fuller is already planning official visits. His first one is scheduled the day after Wylie's lone Thursday night game.
"I think I'm going on an official visit to Iowa," he said. "It's going to be the weekend of Sep. 23. That's their Homecoming game. I was thinking about taking another visit to Virginia too."
Fuller has two other destinations in mind as well.
"I'm probably going to look towards Purdue as well," he said. "They offered me and I like them too. I might check out Michigan State too. There was some miscommunication with them. I had been trying to get in contact with their coaches for a while but they just now found out."
Fuller previously listed a top five of Texas Tech, Oregon, Oklahoma, Virginia and LSU with Texas Tech in the most frequent contact. He has since trimmed it down to four but only one of the previous programs remains.
"I have a different top group now," he said. "I have a top four, I guess. My top schools would be Iowa, Virginia, Michigan State and Purdue. I'm not really hearing from Tech anymore."
Fuller is rated as a three-star recruit and the No. 42 offensive tackle in the country. He is also ranked as the No. 41 prospect in the state of Texas.
