DFW Weekly Recruiting Notebook

Scout.com recaps recruiting in the DFW Metroplex for the week of July 7-13.

The second week of a recruiting dead period (June 30-July 13) once again brought a relatively quiet time in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Nevertheless, there was a trio of 2015 prospects from the region who decided to make commitments.

The first came this past Monday (July 7) from Flower Mound Marcus safety Cade Erwin, who announced his commitment to North Texas.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Erwin chose the Mean Green over Air Force, Eastern Michigan, SMU, and Texas State. Erwin (pictured above), who has played several positions in high school, including running back, quarterback, receiver, and multiple spots on defense, will be a safety at North Texas.

DFW's second commitment came a day later. Tuesday brought the news of Plano offensive lineman Beau Hott committing to Oregon State, which Hott chose over offers from Air Force, Memphis, New Mexico, and North Texas.

Hott, who took a late-June trip to Oregon State, said the Beavers will play him at center or guard.

DFW saw its third commitment in three days this past Wednesday, when news broke of Mansfield Timberview receiver Myron Gailliard pledging to SMU.

Timberview 2016 quarterback Devin Williams was the first to acknowledge Gailliard's decision with a tweet congratulating his teammate. The 5-foot-9, 160-pound Gailliard is SMU's fourth receiver commitment for the 2015 class and possibly the fifth, depending where Leander (Texas) Rouse athlete Billy McCrary ends up playing for the Mustangs.

With Nike's The Opening in Oregon and the Adidas Texas 7v7 Championships in College Station taking up the past week, there was not much news of new offers. However, we learned that Plano Prestonwood Christian Academy 2016 linebacker Deonte Williams owns a new TCU offer, which is his second along with Baylor.
