Houston To Play Washington State

Houston has been on an absolute tear on the recruiting trail in recent days and the Cougars continued to get richer on Tuesday by adding two more commitments into their Class of 2018.

The busy afternoon started when McGregor defensive back Jonathan Phenix announced his commitment via Twitter.

McGregor had one other offer from Incarnate Word and was also getting looked at by TCU. The 6-foot safety was a second team all-district selection for the Bulldogs who also saw time at receiver last season.

He became the 10th commit for Major Applewhite in his first full recruiting class. And just as Monday had unfolded, the Cougars would quickly have another commit out of East Texas in the fold.

Later Tuesday evening, the Cougars would also pick up a commitment from fast-rising (and fast in general) receivers in the state in Lufkin wide receiver Malik Jackson.

Jackson chose the Cougars over offers from Texas State, Sam Houston State and Arkansas State. The speedy receiver was a first-team all-district selection this past season for the Panthers.

On Monday, the Cougars picked up commitments from Fort Bend Marshall wide receiver Henry Thomas and Houston St. Thomas offensive lineman Max Banes, which continues to add to the surge of recent commits. In fact, Houston has seen their class more than double in size since June 9.

There’s a lot of time between now and National Signing Day and with recruiting, you just have to expect the unexpected. That said, Major Applewhite is helping his cause at Houston and we’ll see if he’s able to keep this positive momentum going.
