Five New Houston Offers in Texas

Houston is wasting no time during the spring evaluation period. The Cougars have offered five players in Texas since Monday.

A quintet of Lone Star State prospects have added Houston to their respective offer lists since the beginning of the week.

Four players in the Houston/Southeast Texas region picked up offers from the Cougars on Monday before a DFW Metroplex prospect got his Houston offer Tuesday.

Port Arthur Memorial 2015 safety Cornelius Levine was the first reported Houston offer of the week. Then came an offer for Beaumont Central 2015 receiver Michael Jacquet.

Two Houston offers went out Monday within the city to 2015 Kinkaid High School receiver Sam Mays and Second Baptist 2016 running back/cornerback Lynnard Rose. The Cougars are the first team to offer the 6-foot, 170-pound Rose, who ran for 1,165 yards and 12 touchdowns on 8.3 yards per carry as a sophomore in 2013. He also picked off five passes on defense.

Houston was also the first offer for Mansfield Timberview 2015 cornerback Nathaniel Jones, who got the Cougars' offer Tuesday.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Levine has two offers now as he previously held a UTSA offer. Jacquet also has two offers now with U of H and Indiana, which offered him in late March. Jacquet played quarterback this past fall, throwing for almost 1,400 yards and rushing for about 600 while accounting for 33 total touchdowns.

Mays, a 6-foot-2, 170-pound three-star prospect rated No. 76 nationally by, now has three offers: Houston, Fresno State, and Illinois. He caught 59 passes for 1,012 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2013.
