Houston started offering Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex targets last Monday and continued targeting players from DFW through Sunday, capping a six-offer week for the Cougars in the region.
Houston offered West Mesquite cornerbacks Josh Butler and Bailey Phillips on Sunday. Butler is a 5-foot-10, 163-pound prospect in the 2015 class who holds 15 offers, the most recent of which prior to Houston came from Michigan State on March 18. Butler has offers from Arizona State, Baylor, Miami, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UCLA, and several others.
Dallas Jesuit 2015 quarterback Bo Schneider received his Houston offer Saturday. The Cougars are the third team to offer the 6-foot-4, 217-pound Schneider in the last week-plus, joining Tulsa and Southern Miss.
Arlington Bowie 2015 offensive tackle Madison Akamnonu, a fast-rising 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect, got his Houston offer this past Thursday. The Cougars are 1 of 8 programs to offer Akamnonu, who has also gotten offers from Kansas State and Texas Tech while receiving interest from Oklahoma, TCU, and Texas.
Houston was the fifth offer for Dallas Prime Prep 2015 receiver James Proche II, who heard from the Cougars on Thursday along with Akamnonu. The 6-foot, 180-pound Proche also has offers from Colorado State, SMU, TCU, and Tulsa.
The first Houston offer of the week went to the youngest target. Plano East linebacker Anthony Hines got a Houston offer this past Monday to boost the early Mississippi State pledge's offer list further into the teens. Hines, who is already 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, is expected to be one of the state's -- and potentially, the nation's -- top recruits in the 2017 class. Hines also picked up a Louisville offer Thursday.
