Out-of-state schools have flocked to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in the last few weeks, and this week is no different.
More than a third of the 17 new offers that have gone out so far this week in the region have come from out-of-state schools. Two of those have come from ACC member Wake Forest.
The Demon Deacons first offered Arlington Bowie 2015 offensive tackle Madison Akamnonu on Tuesday, according to Bowie head coach Danny DeArman, who tweeted the news.
The second Wake Forest offer came Wednesday, when Coppell head coach Mike DeWhitt tweeted that 2015 offensive line prospect Connor Williams had received a Wake Forest offer.
Wake Forest is the seventh FBS offer for the 6-foot-5, 270-pound Akamnonu, who has heated up as a prospect during the last week or two. Texas Tech, Kansas State, North Texas, Arkansas State, Colorado State, and Texas State join the Demon Deacons on the strong and athletic Akamnonu's offer list, which is expected to continue to grow.
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Williams, who likely projects as a guard at the next level, added Wake Forest to his prior offers from TCU and North Texas, which has also been busy offering DFW players this week.
Clemson, LSU, Georgia, and Iowa State are the other FBS-level programs to offer DFW prospects so far this week. Clemson offered 2017 quarterback Jason Shelley on Tuesday, while LSU offered 2016 tight end Kaden Smith on Tuesday night.
