When the clock struck midnight Monday, it was technically within the rules for high school juniors to begin receiving college offers.
Walsh will likely begin getting some higher profile offers, as will many other of the top area players in the Class of 2011.
So without further adieu, let's take a look at Lone Star Recruiting's list of the Top 100 players of the Class of 2011 and pick out some area stars that could be getting big-time offers today.
1. Ladarius Brown, Waxahachie -- Coming at the perfect time considering Brown's game on Friday, this two-way WR/S is an absolute stud. He returned two fumbles for touchdows (60 and 78 yards) to help stun the state's No. 5 team in Everman. He's already shown interest in Florida, Oklahoma, Texas and Texas A&M.
2. Miles Onyegbule, Arlington -- With one of the top QBs in the state throwing him the ball, this WR will be one of the most coveted guys in the state next season as a senior, if for nothing else, his tremendous size. At 6-4, 200 pounds, Onyegbule has the potential of turning into a tight end down the road, but for now, he's getting love from many big-time programs, including Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State.
3. J.W. Walsh, Denton Guyer -- This guy has climbed this rankings list more than perhaps anyone, debuting at No. 78 back in February, and now has gotten up to No. 26. He's the second-rated quarterback on the list, but the talk around the town is that by the time the 2009 season is over, he'll be the top QB in the state. He was the key in Guyer's breakthough season last year that ended in the state semifinals and now has Guyer ranked No. 2 in the AP Class 4A poll. Aside from his current offers from Kansas and Arizona, he has big-time interest from Oklahoma, Texas and Oklahoma State.
