Klein, Texas running back Jared Hawkins has gotten off to a good start on the season.
“The phone has been busy,” Hawkins’ father, Jeff said. “He hasn’t gotten any more official offers. We are expecting Eastern Michigan to come through soon. They had indicated that if he would consider moving over to defensive back, they would have offered him. But they got a new running backs coach, that wants to see him more as a running back and they might offer him from that.”
Vanderbilt was a school that the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Hawkins had high on his list earlier. The Commodores have not moved.
“Vanderbilt still has him high on the list. They are trying to fill some more key positions first and then they’ll be back to talk some more. Central Florida was by the school the other day. They acted like they would be offering him. Liberty University in Virginia was there too and the same thing happened with them. Texas A&M has also stepped up their interest recently.”
Hawkins has not lined up any official visits to this point.
“Liberty wanted him to come this weekend, but his football schedule is preventing that. UCF would like him to come down, too. They are targeting Nov. 6 for him to come down. He will go to Texas A&M for their game against Texas Tech.”
Through the first four games, Hawkins leads his district in rushing and is fifth in the state of Texas in Class 5A in rushing.
“He has 638 yards in four games with eight touchdowns. They are 3-1 on the season.
He also has about 100 yards receiving.”
