The past week was the first of the 2014 season in the world of Texas high school football, but there were still several interesting recruiting notes that popped up in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Later that evening, McKinney North 2015 safety Bryce Balous (pictured above) told Scout.com that Kansas State is his leader. He also visited the Wildcats on Saturday night for their blowout win against SFA.
Wednesday brought news of a Stanford offer for Sachse 2015 receiver Devin Duvernay, who is a four-star prospect per Scout and one of the state's top junior prospects in his recruiting cycle. Duvernay has an offer list that is approaching 30 schools.
Following Thursday night's 24-22 Garland win against Irving MacArthur, Garland 2015 safety Luther Kirk told Scout that he recently got his first FBS offer from Louisiana-Monroe. Classmate and teammate Donovan Ransom, a defensive tackle, said that he remains solid to Arkansas State, to which he committed in June.
Irving MacArthur 2015 defensive end T.J. King, who committed in July to Louisiana Tech, told Scout that he's now a soft verbal to Louisiana Tech. He added that he has a new offer from New Mexico, plus interest from a couple of Power 5 conference programs.
Also over the weekend following DFW contests, Scout learned that Coppell 2015 offensive lineman Jordan Murray has an offer from North Texas. Murray told Scout that he's 6-foot-10, 335 pounds.
Frisco Lone Star 2015 offensive lineman Charlie Grammel reported recent offers from Tulsa, New Mexico, and Colorado State, while Cedar Hill 2015 receiver D'Aundrey Bradley said he has a new offer from New Mexico.
