AUSTIN-AREA RECRUIT WATCH ’20: Early Spring College Offers

Hope everyone is staying safe out there!  We are all crossing our fingers that Varsity UIL (volleyball and football) can return this Fall.  We haven’t lost hope that we can squeeze in baseball/softball/soccer/track before the Summer hits – but cautiously optimistic.  (btw, tap follow on our Instagram & Twitter)

Despite the NCAA extending its recruiting ‘dead period’ through May 30th, it has been a busy couple of weeks in Austin-area recruiting.

While most would think this results in a slower time – what has transpired in quite the opposite!  Check out our composite list of Central Texas players who were offered of late.

  • Austin High QB Charles Wright (’21) – Louisiana
  • Cedar Park WR Josh Cameron (’21) – UPenn
    Connally RB Demtrius Garnder-Holmes (’21) – Texas Southern
  • Del Valle OL De’Kedrick Sterns (’21) – Army, North Texas, Arkansas State
  • Del Valle WR Caleb Burton (’22) – Texas A&M, Ohio State
  • Del Valle RB Tavierre Dunlap (’21) – Michigan State, UCLA
  • Elgin ATH Willie Simmons (’21) – North Texas
  • Georgetown DB/LB Andres Langhorne (’21) – Texas Southern
  • Georgetown OL Connor Heffernan (’21) – Tulsa
  • Lake Travis QB Nate Yarnell (’21) – Utah, Nevada, Pitt
  • Lake Travis TE Lake McRee (’21) – LSU
  • LBJ DB Andrew Mukuba (’21) – Texas, Clemson, Michigan State
  • LBJ DL Brendan Jones (’21) – Cornell
  • LBJ DB Latrell McCutchin (’21) – USC, Kansas State
  • Manor DB Devin Lemear (’20) – Arizona, Baylor, UT-SA
  • Westlake QB Cade Klubnik (’22) – Arkansas, SMU, Auburn
  • Westlake RB Zane Minors (’21) – Air Force
  • Westlake WR Jaden Greathouse (’23) – Texas, Oklahoma
  • NEWS AND NOTES:
Austin High signal caller Charles Wright (’21) has already verbally committed to Iowa State, but it hasn’t stopped colleges from calling.

Our preseason 26-6A MVP pick, Westlake QB Cade Klubnik (’22) hasn’t played much, but its not stopping top flight universities from showering #6 with offers.

It looks like Del Valle and LBJ are dueling to see who can have the most players on their roster with Division I offers.  The scary fact – Coach Jahmal Fenner and his Jaguars drop down to Class 4A in 2020.  Armed with elite future Saturday (and possibly Sunday) stars, could we finally see the State run we’ve always expected for LBJ?  The Cardinals issue is being stuck in 26-6A.  You can almost pencil in Westlake/Lake Travis as two of the district’s four playoff teams.  But battling a consistent Hays program, an up-and-coming Bowie team – plus a senior year Charles Wright-led Austin High – it wont’ be easy.
