Texas State first to offer Brandon McDowell


DESOTO, Texas – Per his high school coach, wide receiver/cornerback Brandon McDowell (DeSoto, Texas) picked up his first offer on Tuesday, as Texas State extended a scholarship.

According to DeSoto coach Claude Mathis, McDowell picked up the offer after a productive showing at the Texas State camp at the DeSoto High School’s Eagle Stadium. In addition to being a receiving option for the Eagles, McDowell uses his speed and quickness to be a reliable defender in the secondary. He displayed solid coverage skills against equally speedy athletes at Tuesday’s camp.

Offensively, McDowell was one of seven DeSoto players to have at least 10 receptions last season. He finished the 2011 season with 11 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown.
