Kevin Shorter continues to reel in offers.
The 6-foot, 190-pound Newton football standout told ETSN.fm on Wednesday afternoon that he received an offer from Texas via defensive line coach Bo Davis.
"He came by to tell me after school," Shorter said via text.
Shorter also confirmed that the offer was for running back, where he led the Eagles with 1,810 yards and 31 touchdowns on 151 carries, averaging 12.0 yards per carry, in 2012. He caught 15 passes for 315 yards — 21.0 yards per catch — and four touchdowns.
