After suffering a set-back with a heartbreaking injury Cameron Yoe standout DeDe Westbrook has missed the end of the regular season, but there is a chance he could return to action. If he does it will be as a Texas State commitment.

Dede Westbrook, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound wide receiver from Cameron Yoe High in Texas informed Scout.com he had made his commitment.

“I verbally committed to Texas State,” informed Westbrook, who has missed the past few weeks of his senior season after his intestines collapsed in the first quarter of 24-20 win over McGregor High.

Westbrook was also receiving interest from programs like Texas Tech, Baylor, Memphis, Oklahoma State and UTEP decided to commit to Texas State because of the family feel and the chance to make an immediate impact.

“(I committed) because it is like a family there,” Westbrook said. “I mean as soon as you walk through the doors they make you feel welcome. I am not even on the team and me and the players bonded so well.”

“That is a place where I can see myself making big plays.”

Westbrook was originally told that he would miss at least six weeks with his injury, which required surgery to open up his abdomen and repair. Yoe has a first week bye in the playoffs and that could help his chances to get back out there.

“I have been running and doing bleachers. I am feeling much better,” Westbrook happily reported.
