The wait is over for Whitehouse standout sophomore safety Justin Dunning.

The rangy 6-foot-3, 196-pounder received his first offer from Texas Texas while attending the Red Raiders’ spring football game Saturday in Lubbock.

Dunning, who joined teammate Patrick Mahomes — Whitehouse’s standout 2014 quarterback — on the trip to Lubbock, will be one of East Texas’ most sought after recruits in the 2015 class.

He accumulated 61 tackles, five interceptions, three fumble recoveries, and five pass breakups in 2012, helping the Wildcats to a 10-2 record and Class 4A Division II Region II second-round playoff appearance. Dunning was selected to the Football Super Team Second Team for his performance.

Dunning will be a key piece for new Whitehouse head coach Adam Cook in 2013, which appears to a promising season for the Wildcats. In addition to Dunning and Mahomes, Whitehouse welcomes back three of its top four receivers — Jake Parker, Coleman Patterson, and Jaylon Dews — as well as running back Vincent Dunning, linebacker Reggie Long, and defensive backs Nate Brooks, Isaiah Burton, and Chris Reese, who also played linebacker in 2012.
