At the last minute, Hursey finds Texas Tech
Taking the signing period to the absolute bitter end, H.D. Woodson defensive back Don Hursey, who graduated last June and was prepared to enroll at Hargrave Military Academy, finally got the offer he had been seeking and signed with Texas Tech last weekend.
According to Woodson assistant coach Wayne Johnson, Hursey, who graduated with a 3.5 grade-point average, had offers from Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Towson -- all division I-AA schools. Johnson said Hursey wanted to play at a higher-profile program, and was set to spend the upcoming fall at Hargrave and hope to attract additional scholarship offers and enroll at a college either in January or next fall.
Luckily for Hursey, Texas Tech assistant coach Robert Prunty still has plenty of contact with the staff at Hargrave, for which he was the head coach from 2002 until last January. According to Johnson, when an incoming Red Raiders recruit didn't qualify, Prunty asked his former colleagues if they had any players who could fill the scholarship.
That's when Hursey found the scholarship he was seeking.
