Sulphur Springs’ Willy Ivery Picks Up Second Offer
One of the most versatile offensive weapons in East Texas picked up his second offer Thursday afternoon.
Sulphur Springs junior Willy Ivery announced on Twitter that Toledo is the latest school to offer him. The Rockets join Texas State as the two programs that have offered Ivery.
The 5-foot-9, 180-pound speedster had a big junior campaign this past fall, amassing 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, while catching 54 passes for 674 yards and six scores. He averaged 28.3 yards per kickoff return as Sulphur Springs finished 8-3 with a District 14-4A championship and first-round playoff appearance.
Ivery will be a key piece for the Wildcats in 2013. Sulphur Springs welcomes back him as well as Derick Ingram, who split time at quarterback with senior Brad Macek. Ingram threw for 915 yards, six touchdowns, and five interceptions while running for 163 yards and four scores.
Sulphur Springs also boasts a strong 2015 class that includes safeties Larry Pryor (6-1, 185) and Zach Spigner (6-0, 180), as well as offensive linemen Jess Jenkins (6-3, 270) and Austan Davis (6-4, 220). Pryor, who has an offer from Texas, joins Gladewater defensive tackle Daylon Mack as the region's only sophomores to already hold offers.
