Two dozen offers and two commitments occurred involving prospects from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex this past week.
The first big news of the week came from North Forney 2015 quarterback/tight end Hunter Herndon, who got an offer from Rice on March 17 and committed to the Owls. Later that evening, the 6-foot-4, 238-pounder received his second offer from North Texas.
The second big commitment of the week came Tuesday evening (March 18), when Rockwall-Heath 2015 four-star safety DeShon Elliott committed to Texas, which was considered a favorite for his commitment along with Texas A&M. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Elliott holds about a dozen offers from programs across the country.
Here's a look at the rest of the offers that went out this past week to players in DFW:
Tony Nicholson, 2015 ATH, South Grand Prairie -- the second of three DFW-area UTSA offers went to Nicholson, who is approaching double-digit offers.
Darrion Daniels, 2015 DT, Dallas Bishop Dunne -- the 6-foot-4, 275-pound interior defender has about 20 FBS offers, but that didn't stop D-II program Angelo State from offering him this past Monday.
Jalen Guyton, 2015 WR, Allen -- Guyton's FBS-level offer list is in the teens, but prestigious FCS school Yale offered him March 17.
Kaden Smith, 2016 TE, Flower Mound Marcus -- already one of the state's top 2016 recruits, the 6-foot-5, 235-pound Smith got offered by LSU on Tuesday to push his offer list to eight, which includes Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech.
Greg Little, 2016 OT, Allen -- speaking of big-time 2016 prospects, the 6-foot-6, 285-pound Little is an early five-star talent. He received an offer from Georgia this past Wednesday to give him more than a dozen high-major offers.
Chris Orr, 2015 LB, DeSoto -- the first offer arrived for Orr this past Wednesday, when North Texas offered him. He's the younger brother of all-conference linebacker Zach Orr, who played a key role helping North Texas finish 9-4 with a Heart Of Dallas Bowl victory this past season.
Sam Tecklenburg, 2015 TE, Plano -- the fourth North Texas offer of the week went to the big-bodied Tecklenburg, who heard Wednesday from the Mean Green, which is the eighth FBS program to offer him.
Connor Williams, 2015 OT, Coppell -- Williams joined Akamnonu as the second Wake Forest offensive line target in the Metroplex this past week when he got a Demon Deacons offer Wednesday.
Anthony Hines, 2017 LB, Plano East -- it's early, but Hines should be one of the state's -- and possibly the nation's -- top 2017 prospects. Southern Miss and Clemson were the latest schools to offer him as they joined the race for Hines on Thursday and Friday, respectively.
Prentice McKinney, 2015 S, Dallas SOC -- TCU offered a pair of South Oak Cliff defensive backs this past Friday. McKinney's TCU offer is one of at least a dozen for him.
Jamile Johnson, 2015 S, Dallas SOC -- TCU also offered Johnson, who committed to Oklahoma in mid-February.
Austin Corbett, 2015 LB, Plano East -- the 6-foot-4, 200-pounder got his second offer Saturday from UTSA. The Roadrunners join SMU on his offer list.
