Add another name to the list.

Colleyville Heritage defensive back Reid Harrison-Ducros committed to Boise State on Friday, increasing the number of Football Bowl Subdivision pledges to 15. Harrison-Ducros received an offer from the Broncos last week after performing well at a Boise camp.

His commitment comes a week after five area players committed to FBS schools, as we reviewed in last week’s Recruiting Recap.

Here’s a look at the rest of what’s been a relatively quiet week in area recruiting:

Dilfer praises Buechele

As we’ve mentioned, Arlington Lamar’s Shane Buechele and Mansfield Lake Ridge’s Jett Duffey will be competing in the Elite 11 finals, a national quarterback competition in Eugene, Ore. next month.

Buechele, a Texas commit, earned his invitation earlier this month at the Elite 11 semifinals in California. When it came time to decide whether Buechele should advance to the finals, it seemed to be an easy decision, as the “War Room” video that was posted this week indicates below.

Former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer on Buechele: “Passer. Passer. He will rip The Opening, because he sees it, he can spin it. Ties his feet to his eyes, and he’s a dude. Done.”

And Elite 11 camp director Brian Stumpf: “Right when he got to the beach house, he was dialed, he competed in everything, he was a leader in everything, a silent leader. He’s not a rah-rah guy, but he’s got a clean stroke. He’s a sharp, sharp kid.”

The finals start July 5 as part of the Nike-sponsored The Opening national football camp. The final two days will be broadcasted on ESPNU.

Numbers from DCTF

Dave Campbell’s Texas Football came out this month, and the magazine included a few interesting recruiting stats from the Class of 2015. Namely, Texas produced the most FBS players in the country, with 412 signees (378 from high schools). That doesn’t include recruits who went to service academies or recruits who signed as grayshirts. There’s always a solid number of players who fall into those categories.

Fifty-five percent of signees from Texas went to Big 12 schools, while a little more than 10 percent went to SEC schools.

Florida was second behind Texas with 380 signees.

Quick hits

Mesquite Horn defensive end Gary Overshown committed to TCU. Overshown’s rated as a lower-end 247 Sports Composite three-star, but it’s easy to see the draw here: He’s listed at 6-foot-4, 217 pounds. That’s the frame of a defensive end Gary Patterson can develop, as he has before.

Southlake Carroll linebacker I.V. Seacat committed to Texas Tech as a preferred walk-on.

Carroll running back Lil’Jordan Humphrey received an offer from Illinois, adding to his double-digit total.

Euless Trinity defensive tackle Chris Daniels visited Oklahoma State last weekend.
