Letters are already starting to pour in for 2007 Lufkin, Texas wide receiver prospect Dez Bryant and with his team's records along with personal stats for this year, it's really not a surprise.
As the Panthers have started their season 5-0, Bryant has been a big reason for their success. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound pass-catcher has hauled in 421 yards and seven touchdowns while averaging 30.1 yards per catch. That has numerous schools looking already to the talented young man.
"Oh yeah, I'm getting letters," Bryant said. "Oklahoma State, Florida State, Texas Tech, Iowa, UCLA, and Texas A&M have been the main ones so far. I'm not ready to have a favorite yet because I want to wait until next year."
Though he's clear about not having a top team, Bryant grew up favoring one.
"When I was a kid, I always cheered for Texas A&M," Bryant said. "I just liked how they looked and how they do things there."
With senior teammates E.J. Shankle and Leonard Hewitt look at the Aggies, would that make a difference where they ended up?
"Not really, if I go there then that is a school that I would be going to for me," Bryant said. "That really wouldn't have a huge effect on where I end up.
