The Tulsa Golden Hurricane football staff has been out and about in East Texas this week.
Tulsa issued three Tuesday offers to prospects in the region's 2015 class, then added two more offers Wednesday to a coveted 2016 standout and a 2015 prospect with three Big 12 offers.
Texarkana Texas High had two recruits pick up Tulsa offers Tuesday. Running back Javon Thomas, a 6-foot-1, 195-pounder, got a Golden Hurricane offer along with athlete Jarion Anderson, a 5-foot-9, 167-pounder. Tulsa is the first offer for Anderson, who plays receiver and cornerback for Texas High, which also uses him in the return game.
Thomas, who backed up 1,000-yard rusher Tre Walker in 2013, has seen his recruitment take off in recent weeks. Thomas got his first offer in late April from Navy. Less than two weeks ago, Thomas got Rice and Toledo offers on the same day before picking up the Tulsa offer Tuesday evening.
Jeff Gladney was another Tuesday night recipient of a Tulsa offer. The New Boston 2015 athlete also picked up a North Texas offer Tuesday to give him a total of six. He previously held offers from Northern Illinois, Rice, Texas State, and UTSA. The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder projects best as a slot receiver, but could also play cornerback at the next level.
The fourth Tulsa offer so far this week went to Nacogdoches 2016 four-star safety Brandon Jones (pictured above), who tweeted the news of the offer Wednesday afternoon, shortly before tweeting that Mississippi State has also offered him.
It's only Wednesday, but it's already a five-offer week for the 6-foot, 190-pound Jones, who holds 23 offers and counting. Penn State and Ohio State offered him Monday before Stanford offered Jones on Tuesday.
The fifth Tulsa offer went out early Wednesday afternoon to Lufkin 2015 athlete Keke Coutee, who already held offers from Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas Tech. Coutee has been recruited as a receiver and cornerback, but likely projects best as a receiver.
