East Texas Weekly Recruiting Notebook

2015 OT Chett Munden

Scout.com recaps the busiest week of the past several on the recruiting front in the East Texas region.

The East Texas weekly recruiting notebook went on hiatus for a few weeks during a summer lull, but it's back this week after the past seven days (July 28-Aug. 3) saw multiple commitments and a couple of new offers.

The news started this past Monday night, when Marshall 2015 offensive tackle Chett Munden (pictured above) announced his commitment to North Texas. The 6-foot-6, 303-pound Munden has only the Mean Green offer so far, but has gotten interest from other FBS programs.

Tyler John Tyler 2015 cornerback Isaac Warren also had a busy Monday.

The 6-foot-1, 189-pound Warren made a name for himself at the Texas Longhorns' "Under The Lights" camp July 18 with a stellar performance. Until this past Monday, Warren had only five FCS offers and was a soft verbal commitment to Sam Houston State, but July 28 brought him his first FBS offers from Arizona State and Purdue.

A day later, Warren pulled the trigger on a Purdue commitment.

The region's third commitment of the week came Friday, when Athens 2016 cornerback Travon Fuller pledged to Texas A&M.

Fuller is already a Scout four-star prospect ranked as the nation's No. 13 cornerback and No. 156 overall recruit in the 2016 class. While the Aggies account for his only offer so far, we expect that to change. Fuller is the fourth Texas A&M commitment from East Texas in the 2015 and 2016 cycles, joining the region's trio of Aggie pledges from 2015: five-star defensive tackle Daylon Mack, four-star safety Justin Dunning, and four-star safety Larry Pryor.

Also of note from this past week, Longview 2015 offensive guard/center Broderick Washington got his seventh FBS offer from Louisiana Tech, according to the Longview News-Journal. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Washington already had offers from Arkansas State, Houston, Louisiana-Lafayette, New Mexico, North Texas, and UTSA.

In unofficial visit news, Nacogdoches 2016 four-star safety Brandon Jones hit the road this past weekend to visit two of the more than two dozen schools that have offered him: LSU and Alabama.

Scout ranks Jones, who said on Twitter that he also plans to soon visit Texas, as the nation's No. 1 safety and No. 25 overall prospect in the 2016 class.
