DFW Weekly Recruiting Notebook

New offers came fast and furious the first few days of this past week, but slowed down considerably toward the end of the week. Scout.com recaps all the offers that went out in the DFW Metroplex from March 10-16.

More than a dozen football prospects in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex received new offers during the past week, including two players who garnered three apiece.

Arlington Bowie 2015 offensive tackle Madison Akamnonu started the week with a Texas State offer before picking up Texas Tech on Wednesday and Arkansas State on Saturday to push his offer list to six schools. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound Akamnonu could become one of DFW's most popular targets in the coming weeks.

West Mesquite 2015 cornerback Josh Butler also received three offers to see his offer list grow into the mid-teens. The 5-foot-10, 163-pound Butler picked up offers from Louisiana Tech and Indiana on Wednesday before reigning Big Ten champion Michigan State offered him Thursday.

Here's a recap of the rest of the offers from the past week in the DFW Metroplex:
