News and Notes

Brenham has never been short of Division I talent. In fact, you could say that the program is so deep that the next tier of Division I recruits are being evaluated.

While most know that linebacker Tim Cole (Texas), defensive tackle Malcom Brown (Texas), offensive lineman Adrian Bellard (Texas A&M) and running back Troy Green (Texas A&M) have made their decisions, coach Glen West said his program is receiving many visits from Division I programs.

West said Baylor assistant Dino Babers was in town recently to collect film on wide receiver Tremund Moore, linebacker Jerrid Jeter-Gilmon and defensive back Robert Felder for further evaluation. Of course, the evaluation will determine if the coaching staff will follow through with verbal offers to any of them. Of course, written offers cannot be issued until Aug. 1.

"There's a lot of interest from a lot of schools,'' West said. "Felder is the fastest kid on our team at 4.42. Moore and Gilmon are very athletic. I know we've had Minnesota come through here and we're supposed to have Texas Tech's defensive coordinator [Chad Glasgow] by the end of the week.''

Dominique Wheeler update spoke late Wednesday with Crockett wide receiver Dominique Wheeler. In a recent report, Wheeler indicated that Baylor was not among his favorite schools.

But he wanted to clarify those remarks.

"I like them a lot. I just haven't visited them yet,'' he said. "I want to try and get up there in the summer time so I can talk to them and get to know them better. When I said I thought TCU was my favorite. They were my favorite of the schools I visited.''

Wheeler said he wanted to make sure he could visit as many schools as he could before he decided to commit. He is holding 11 offers including the Bears and BCS champion Auburn. He said he saw assistant coach Randy Clements Class 2A Region III track and field meet May 2-3 in Jacksonville.

But keep this in mind about Wheeler. Between football and school he is also holding a part-time job.

"I want to help my grandma,'' he said.

Lufkin coach John Outlaw said he expects to see Baylor assistant Carlton Buckels on his campus this coming Monday (May 9). The Bears could be evaluating scat back Jamarcus Walker and defensive tackle Tomme Mark..…Keller Central defensive back Zack Sanchez said he has spoken with linebackers coach Jim Gush and defensive coordinator Phil Bennett regarding his fit with the defense. Although an offer has not been extended, Sanchez said he has been encouraged to come to a camp in June.
