DFW Weekly Recruiting Notebook

The week of April 21-27 was the most active yet on the recruiting trail this spring in the DFW Metroplex. Scout.com recaps all of the action right here.

Two commitments and one decommitment highlighted a very busy week across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, which was also home to at least 43 new offers.

The first big news of the week came this past Wednesday when DeSoto 2015 defensive tackle Bryce English announced via Twitter that he decommitted from Texas.

That caught the attention of other college programs as he picked up an Iowa offer later that day and an Arizona State offer Friday.

Celina 2015 receiver Cash Conder provided the week's first of two commitments Wednesday when he informed Scout.com of his Western Michigan pledge. Conder visited Western Michigan the previous weekend and came away very impressed with WMU head coach P.J. Fleck.

Aledo 2015 running back Jess Anders became DFW's second commitment Saturday when he pledged to the Roadrunners at their spring game, according to InsideRunnerSports.com. Anders gained more than 2,000 yards from scrimmage and scored 40 total touchdowns in 2013 for state champion Aledo.

Miami, Wisconsin, Arizona State, and SMU were among the most active schools in the Metroplex this past week. There were almost four dozen offers in the greater DFW region since Monday (April 21), so let's recap them right here:

Ryan Wegmann, 2015 DE, Wichita Falls Rider -- sneaking in a player from west of the Metroplex, the 6-foot-3, 255-pound lineman got his first two offers Monday from Colorado State and North Texas.
