Texas 7v7: Day 2 Recruiting Notebook

2015 CB Darrell Miller

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Scout.com visits some of the recruiting storylines from Friday's action at the Adidas Texas 7v7 Championships.

Cedar Hill 2015 cornerback Darrell Miller (pictured above) did not participate in Friday's pool-play action because of a hairline fracture in a facial bone, but he told Scout that he's down to a final four among his 15 offers: Tennessee, Ohio State, Boise State, and Purdue. Miller recently told Scout that Tennessee, Ohio State, and Boise State were part of his final five, but he's switched out Iowa and Michigan State for Purdue. (Gabe Brooks)


West Mesquite 2016 receiver Dee Anderson said he will visit Tennessee next week before visiting LSU on July 27. Neither team has offered him, but the 6-foot-4, 175-pounder already has seven FBS offers. Anderson, 2016 cornerback teammate Bailey Phillips (double-digit offers) and 2015 four-star cornerback teammate Josh Butler (almost 30 offers) all plan to visit Tennessee next weekend. Tennessee has offered Phillips and Butler. Phillips has a cousin at Tennessee: 2012 West Mesquite graduate Dimarya Mixon. (Gabe Brooks)


Katy 2016 running back Kyle Porter said that he has offers from Baylor, Illinois, and Texas. The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder will attend a Baylor camp next Friday. (Gabe Brooks)


Cedar Hill 2017 receiver/cornerback Jaylon Jackson, who had a terrific day playing a lot of cornerback in place of the injured Darrell Miller, hasn't got his first offer yet, but said he's hearing from Baylor and TCU. Jackson plans to attend a TCU camp next Friday. (Gabe Brooks)


Cedar Hill running back Aca'cedric Ware has been busy with visits, and says that Iowa and USC were two that really stood out. Ware, who will likely commit during the season, says that he plans to take official visits to USC, Iowa, Ohio State, and Notre Dame, and that the fifth visit will be to "whoever pulls him in" the most.

West Mesquite quarterback Chason Virgil plans to enroll early at Mississippi State and says that he will likely take his official visit in October, for either the Texas A&M or Auburn game. (Annabel Stephan)


Arlington Lamar 2016 quarterback Shane Buechele holds offers from Kentucky, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and TCU. Buechele is also hearing from Texas (where he will camp on July 18th) and Arizona State. He grew up a fan of Oklahoma and Stanford, where his father played. (Annabel Stephan)


Jalen Hurts, a class of 2016 signal caller from Channelview, has offers from Houston and Mississippi State, but after those schools, said Baylor and Texas Tech are recruiting him the hardest. Hurts has been to a few different camps already, but when asked what coach that he got along with or worked the best with so far he mentioned new Texas offensive coordinator Shawn Watson. Hurts is not sure if he will be making it to Austin for the July 18 camp, but the Horns have already made a clear impression. (Greg Powers)


Obi Eboh, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound corner from Southlake Carroll, was happy to receive his first offer from Rice, but more could be around the corner as he reports that both Oklahoma State and Arkansas are on him very hard and could be next to pull the trigger. That would not be a surprise as he was one of the more physically imposing prospects during Friday's big-school pool play. Outside of his current interest list, he would be excited to hear from schools such as Notre Dame, UCLA, Cal and Stanford because they offer a blend of academics and athletics. (Greg Powers)


Atascocita 2015 receiver Tre Hamilton, a UTSA commit, will visit Memphis next weekend. Memphis is a school he said has been heavily pursuing him. And Hamilton is listening.(Ahmard Vital)
