Sulphur Springs speedster Willy Ivery received his fifth Division I FBS offer Thursday.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pound athlete was offered by North Texas, he said on Twitter. The Mean Green offer joins offers from Colorado State, New Mexico, Texas State, and Toledo.

Ivery had a big junior year in 2012, accumulating almost 1,600 yards from scrimmage and 29 total touchdowns, including one kickoff return TD.

Ivery ran 86 times for 914 yards — 10.6 yards per carry — and 22 touchdowns. He caught 54 passes for 674 yards and six scores while averaging 28.3 yards per kickoff return as Sulphur Springs finished 8-3 with a District 14-4A championship and first-round playoff appearance.

“He’s extremely talented with the ball in his hands and extremely explosive,” Sulphur Springs coach Greg Owens recently told ETSN.fm. “The Big 12 guys are still intrigued with him, but they’ve told me they’re not sure how he fits in their package.”

Owens said that Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Texas have all shown interest in Ivery.
