Louisiana Tech Offers Tyler Lee’s Brandon Durman
After Saturday's new offer, East Texas now has a dozen players in the 2015 class with a Division I FBS offer.
Tyler Lee junior linebacker Brandon Durman received a Louisiana Tech offer during his visit to Ruston on Saturday, according to his Twitter account.
Durman is the second player in Lee's junior class to receive an FBS offer. SMU offered offensive tackle Matthew Weeks (6-5, 260) a few months ago.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Durman is the second East Texan in the 2015 class to receive a Louisiana Tech offer, joining Whitehouse cornerback Nate Brooks (6-0, 150), who also holds a North Texas offer.
Including the aforementioned junior duo with Bulldog offers, five East Texans in the 2014 and 2015 classes hold Louisiana Tech offers. Three East Texans play for Louisiana Tech right now: senior offensive lineman Vince Cano (Kilgore), redshirt freshman receiver Grant Childress (Tyler Grace), and senior offensive lineman Matthew Shepperd (Marshall).
