Midlands Recruiting Mailbag (4/29/14)

Scout.com tackles questions in its weekly Midlands Recruiting Mailbag feature...

Q: Now that Rodney Anderson has decommitted from Texas A&M, where do you see him ending up? Is A&M still in the picture?

A: Not much information has been coming out about the recruitment of Anderson since word got out that he was opening up on his commitment from Texas A&M. And though much has not be spoken on "on the record," it looks as though lots of bad info has gone viral as it does in these situations. When it comes to who is possibly in play for Anderson, Oklahoma has to be on that list as it was known that he did make a trip there this off season. Aside from that, Texas A&M is still in as good a place as any program at this point. Who else could be added to this list? That will be something to unfold as time moves on. For now, it looks as though Anderson just wants to lay low, not think about recruiting for a little while and get to work with his teammates to get back to another title game.

Q: Where is former Hidalgo quarterback Shea Patterson now playing?

A: Patterson, and early Arizona commitment and the Scout 2012 Co-Freshman prep Player of the Year in Texas, is now at Calvary Baptist in Shreveport, La. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder had another good season on the field as a sophomore, passing for 2,655 yards and 34 touchdowns to only four interceptions.

Q: Does Dahu Green have what it takes to earn an offer from an in-state program like Oklahoma or Oklahoma State?

A: I think the simple answer here is yes. He does have the skill set to be good enough to get an offer from one of the in-state power programs. His offer list is at double digits now with the latest offer being from North Texas. Green, a 6-foot-3, 180-pounds has the size and speed to be a dangerous outside receiver, reminding me some of former Scout five-star wide receiver Deontay Greenberry who shocked many when he selected Houston over national level offers on national signing day.

Q: What is the spring evaluation period?

A: During the spring evaluation period (April 15 - May 31) college coaches are allowed to come to the high schools to evaluate the prospect on two separate occasions. They are able to make these visits to assess the prospective recruits athletic and academic abilities. The rules are a little different for each class, but for juniors coaches are allowed to call recruits once between April 15th and May 31st. They are not allowed to contact underclassmen. But as always recruits are able to contact the coaches at their own expense at any point.
