Irwin twins keep adding offers

Cypress (Texas) C-Fair had an incredible turnaround this past season, going from a winless record to district champions. A big reason for the success was twin brothers Jeromy Irwin and Sean Irwin. Jeromy, a 6-foot-5, 289-pound offensive tackle, and Sean, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound tight end, have seen quite a bit of recruiting attention this spring.

The two brothers have picked up several offers over the last month. This week, the Houston-area duo has already added two more. Other programs are still evaluating them as well.

"I was offered by Wake Forest yesterday and then Nevada called today and offered me," Jeromy Irwin said on Wednesday evening. "They had both come by our school to watch us before this.

"Cal came by today. So did Houston. A bunch of schools are still coming by but I haven't really talked to them because we're not allowed to. They usually call afterwards though."

Irwin feels a Pac-12 program could be the next to offer. An SEC team is also showing heavy interest.

"Coach (Morgan) Scalley at Utah called Sean," he said. "He told him they were really interested. He said that next time he calls he's going to have an offer for us. He has to talk to the offensive coordinator first before he offers.

"Arkansas also seems like they are close to offering. There are a bunch of schools showing a lot of interest. It's hard to tell if they like you enough to offer though."

The brothers have made it clear that they would like to continue to play together in college. Previously, Irwin listed Colorado as his top school. However, he is now completely open.

"I've actually been thinking about it a lot lately and I don't know," he said. "I'm not sure where I want to go. There's not really a top five anymore. This has all sort of happened so quickly."
