The Houston Cougars have noticeably ramped up their recruitment of the 2018 class in the last few days, sending out a garage of new offers across the state, region and country.
Head coach Major Applewhite and his staff had been working on the 2018 class to some degree before signing day a week ago, but the action picked up significantly beginning with the staff's first junior day held at TDECU Stadium last Saturday.
One of the players on hand for the Cougars junior day was Houston (TX) St. Pius X receiver Bryson Jackson and the Cougars staff extended an offer to him.
Jackson was a TAPPS fist team All State selection in 2016, catching 69 passes for 4,973 yards with 21 touchdowns. A lot of those came from fellow first team All State selection, 2019 standout quarterback Grant Gunnell who also hold an offer from the Cougars.
The Cougars will be in the market for receivers in the 2018 recruiting cycle, and could take as many as four in the class. Applewhite and his newly assembled staff have plenty of early competition for Jackson as Notre Dame, Miami, TCU, Duke, Vanderbilt and several others have also offered the 6-foot-1, 170 pound speedster.
