When Deon Hollins Jr. (Fort Bend, Texas/Marshall) got his first scholarship offer from Texas Tech before to his junior season, his father encouraged him to wait and keep working hard in the hopes of someday landing a second offer.

Now the junior linebacker/defensive end has 17 offers. Or maybe it’s 18. He’s starting to lose track.

“This is a tremendous honor,” Hollins Jr. said. “I just never believed it would happen to me. I’ve got more offers than I ever really thought I would.”
