4-star Hughes up to Four

Waco (TX) University's 6-foot-3, 300-pound defensive tackle Ben Hughes lands a pair of Big 12 offers Tuesday.

It was a week ago that Ben Hughes told FoxSportsNext's Ahmard Vital he felt confident more offers were coming.

His feelings were accurate.

"Two more offers from Oklahoma State and Kansas State today," reported Hughes, who admitted that both came by surprise.

"I hadn't talked much with either one," he said. "But they like me and they want me. That's big."

He has not visited either school yet, but notes, "this summer I will."

He also looks to hit Tulsa and Kansas (his first two offers), as well as Baylor (a possible fifth?)

"It's going to be a busy summer," he laughed.

Until then, he is focused on closing strong in track & field before turning his full attention to spring football.

Hughes will travel to Abilene this weekend to compete regionally in the shot put, looking to beat his best throw of 54 feet, 3 inches.
