Devils Falling Behind With Texas Athlete

One player that could absolutely explode onto the recruiting scene once the season starts is West Columbia, Texas athlete Jared Flannel. He's racked up four offers, but has plenty of interest from others.

"I have offers from Missouri, Houston, UTEP and Duke at this point," Flannel said. "Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Arizona and Iowa have all been on me pretty hard. They have all said they are considering offering."

The 6-foot-0, 180-pound Flannel, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds, could project as a defensive back, running back or wide receiver on the next level.

"I am really liking Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and Missouri a lot," Flannel said. "I am supposed to be setting up official visits to Missouri and Arizona here soon. I want to see at least Missouri before I commit, but I really will probably take two or three of my visits first."

Flannel was district MVP was sophomore and junior seasons. He was also named all-county co-MVP as a junior. As a junior he rushed for 1,498 yards and 15 touchdowns on 171 carries.

"Most schools are recruiting me as a cornerback or athlete," Flannel said. "I think a lot of them just want to get me on campus and see where I fit in best."
