After leading his school to its second-ever state semifinal, Frisco Lone Star QB Garrett Rangel reeled in his first Power 5 offer.
The District Newcomer of the Year threw for over 4,500 yards and 50 TDs and took down Highland Park in the postseason. The Scots had won three straight Class 5A state titles.
"It was a wild ride last year," he said. "It was a brotherhood from spring drills to fall camp to the playoffs. We didn't reach our ultimate goal, so we are going to be back for redemption next year."
The Class of 2022 star pulled his first Big 12 offer from Oklahoma State last week. He also has offers from Nevada and Missouri State.
