Hughes Adds Huge Offer

Nathan Hughes will be one of the most highly recruited players in the "Lone Star State" for the class of 2011. Don't believe us? Just check out his early offer list for the confirmation...

Schools like Baylor, Oklahoma State, Houston, and Arkansas have all offered Nathan Hughes, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound defensive end from Klein Oak High in Texas.

But his offer list was bolstered yet again when he got some good news when Big 12 South power Oklahoma stepped up to the plate.

"I think it's great," Hughes said when asked about receiving an offer from the Sooners. "My mom and I loved it because it's so close."

Hughes racked up 81 tackles, 11 sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and played two games where he got three sacks (Westfield and Cy Creek) as junior in 2009.
