Southern Miss is making unprecedented gains in the offers into the state of Texas. Seeking to gain more of a foothold, they've left no stone unturned in their pursuit of talent in the Lone Star State.
One recent offer, Erick Hallett II of Cy Fair HS in Cypress, TX, is more evidence.
The Three star defensive back has 15 offers at this point, including his latest one from Southern Miss.
"Coach Walden didn't have a lot of time to talk but he mentioned that he wanted me to go to the camp that would be over here in Texas," Hallett detailed to GoldenEaglePride.com.
"He also really wants me to come and visit this summer."
Hallett was honest that the offer made him more curious about Southern Miss.
"I have heard about the program but I don't know a whole lot about it yet," he said.
For now, he said he's not ready to trim things down just yet.
"I don't have any leaders yet," he said. "I'm just doing research and learning as much as possible about each school that has offered."
He said he's hearing a lot from Arizona State, Prairie View, Arizona, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, Colorado State and Holy Cross.
