Trojans, Horns closing in on Acho

Big things are happening with Dallas St. Marks defensive end Sam Acho. More scholarship offers are in hand and a pair of big schools could be just around the corner with their offers as well.

Southern Cal coach Ken Norton Jr. has told Acho that recently that the written offer from the Trojans is in the mail and should arrive this week. The Texas coaches are also picking up their interest, according to the rising defender. Several other schools have recently got involved making things tight as the 6-foot-2, 250-pounder prepares to narrow down his list.

"Stanford, Nebraska, and Iowa have all sent their written offers now," Acho said. "Coach Norton said that they're sending me the written offer, I'm excited about that and I'm also excited about Stanford and Nebraska. Stanford has great academics and now that it's official, they're high on my list."
