Texas ties

With two offers to his name before the start of his junior season, Dannon Cavil expected that number to grow before the end of 2011.

But less than a week into preseason camp, he suffered a torn hamstring. So on the sidelines he sat for the entire regular season.

Cavil tried to rejoin his James Madison High School [San Antonio] teammates in the first-round of the Texas state playoffs. Two quarters into his first game of the 2011 season, Cavil sprained his MCL.

"It was good to get back out there. That was my goal, to play again," he told CUTigers. "I wanted to play, no matter what. I knew there was a risk of injury, but I wanted to help my team.

"To go back out there and be back on the field, it was a great feeling. You take things for granted. It was just a blessing to be back out there."

The junior wide receiver added, "There are setbacks in life, but I'm going to be all right."

Cavil finished with two catches for 44 yards and two kickoff returns for 110 yards.

Clemson and Baylor remain his only two offers, but others have expressed interest.

LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, UCLA, Texas A&M, TCU, Texas Tech, Oregon State, Michigan, Michigan State, USC, Oklahoma and Oregon are also in contact.

Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris regularly sends letters and e-mails to Cavil.

"He just tells me about the season, what he's doing, asks how I've been," Cavil said.

He'll hit the road for combines and camps.

"I don't have any schools down, but I'll probably hit the camp and combine circuit in the summer," Cavil said.

Tigertown is "most definitely" a potential place he'll make a trip to this summer.

As a sophomore at Lake Travis High School, where Morris once coached, Cavil had 27 catches for 565 yards and eight touchdowns. He also rushed for over 100 yards and scored twice on the ground.
