FSNext: Midlands Notebook

FRISCO, Texas – Catcthing up with some of the biggest recruiting news and notes around the Midlands region.

Red River Battles

It is likely going to be a Red River battle for the signatures of Scout.com Top 100 offensive lineman Darius James (6'5/300) from Harker Heights High and Scout.com Top 100 defensive tackle Justin Manning (6'2, 275) from Kimball High.

Both of these 'Lone Star State' standouts visited Texas for junior day at the beginning of February and both are slated to be in Norman, Okla., this weekend to check out Oklahoma's Junior Day.

Many believe James is leaning towards the Longhorns at this point in the process, but he has yet to set foot on OU's campus. Manning on the other hand is considered to be a heavy Sooner lean. His older brother DeMarcus Granger played at OU and many believe that Manning will soon follow...

Maybe as soon as this weekend.

New Offers at West Mesquite

It continues to stay busy at West Mesquite High. Its seems like everyday new BCS offers are rolling in for its prospects.

Kameron Miles, a 6-foot-1, 212-pound safety added offers from SMU and West Virginia this week. He was particularly pumped about the Mountaineers offers, since the school will now be competing in the Big 12.

"I am kinda excited about this one," Miles informed. "To me it's just West Virginia. That's why it stands out to me."

Dimarya Mixon, a 6-foot-2, 265-pound defensive tackle is also starting to see a real spike in his interest and he is now holding multiple BCS options. Arizona State and Mississippi were the first two schools to jump on board, but "Washington State" was the latest school to offer the Metroplex standout.

WSU also offered Mixon's teammate Eldridge Massington, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound wide receiver prospect who now holds about a dozen official offers now.

First for Harding

The Sooner State produces plenty of division one signees in every class and the Class of 2013 will not be an exception.

Khari Harding, 6-foot-2, 205-pound safety from Edmond Santa Fe High was happy to inform that he may get the chance to be one of them.

His father reported on Thursday night that Kansas State had stepped up to the plate with an offer -- Harding's first.

Harding has been to two Oklahoma State Junior Days and has plans to attend KSU's Junior Day (3/3) and Nebraska's Junior Day (4/14).

Six More for Prevot

Torrodney Prevot, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound speed rushing specialist may be the hottest prospect in the Lone Star State.

Since Sunday Prevot has added to an impressive offer list that already had schools like Oklahoma, LSU and Texas A&M sitting at the top.

This week he has added offers from Texas, Colorado, Houston, Texas Tech, Ole Miss and West Virginia, solidifying his status as one of the top defensive end targets in the country.
