Texas Recruiting FW Dunbar Junior Trio

Most recruiting fans are familiar with Fort Worth Dunbar's junior wide receiver Darius White and junior safety/running back Rashad Favors, but the news today is that Texas is also showing interest in a third Dunbar junior.

According to Fort Worth Dunbar Head Coach Todd Lawson, Darius White, Rashad Favors, and junior wide receiver/corner Dominque Sanders traveled to Austin to watch the Texas-Missouri game, and Texas has expressed interest in all three of his junior prospects.

Sanders plays opposite of White, but also gets rushing attempts from the backfield and fills in at cornerback in the defensive backfield. Sanders has rushed 42 times for 400 yards and four touchdowns while adding 31 receptions for 425 yards and four more touchdowns. Lawson confirmed that Texas, Oklahoma, and Washington are showing interest in Sanders as a defensive back.

"He has the hips to be a great corner," said Lawson. "He is the fastest guy on my team. Oklahoma, Texas and Washington are showing interest in him," said Lawson.

Darius White, the 6-4 200 pound receiver prospect, has led the Wildcats on offense with 16 overall touchdowns (14 receiving, one rushing, one punt return) through 9 games. He has 29 catches for 807 yards for a whopping 27.8 yards per catch. He has five touchdowns of over 70 yards. Lawson said that Oklahoma, Texas, Oregon, and Georgia have all expressed interest and has high praise for his talented multi-sport athlete. White also excels on the hardwood.

"We try to get the ball in Darius' hands in a bunch of ways. He returns punts for us. We line him up in the slot to avoid double teams. He has even taken some snaps at quarterback for us. Oklahoma, Texas, Oregon and Georgia are showing Darius interest," said Lawson.

The third Dunbar junior prospect getting a lot of attention from college coaches is safety Rashad Favors. Favors also plays short yardage and goal line situations as a running back where he has tallied eight rushing touchdowns on 26 rushing attempts. Lawson thinks a position change may be in Favors' future.

"Favors has beefed up to 230 pounds. He can cover like a safety and can fill like a linebacker. I think he'll end up at linebacker. Texas and Oklahoma are recruiting him." Lawson said.

Dunbar is currently 8-1, and leads District 7-4A. The Wildcats have reeled off eight straight wins after a season opening loss to Abilene.
