UH scores big on Saturday

The afternoon started with one quality acquisition for Houston.

By sunset, the Cougars had a quartet of offensive weapons in the boat for their 2014 recruiting class from their junior day on Saturday.

After landing Houston Westside receiver Bobby Hartzog to start things off, the Cougars added two Central Texas products in quarterback Bear Fenimore (Austin, Texas/Westwood) and receiver Latrell Martin and finally, a Louisiana product in receiver Steven Dunbar (Metairie, La./Archibishop Rummel).

Dunbar, a 6-2, 185-pound receiver, had offers from Air Force, Kent State, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, Northern Colorado and Western Kentucky. He attended Houston's junior day on Saturday and liked what he saw. Perhaps the biggest factor was how he felt about his recruiter, outside receivers coach Brandon Middleton.

"The experience he had, playing at the next level, being an All-American in college, he can help me to reach that or better," Dunbar said. "Also, the opportunity that I have to play and contribute early if I earn my spot is important."

Fenimore summed up the productive day for Houston.

"It was a big day for us," Fenimore said. "I know before today we had some defensive commitments, but to have some more offensive guys is really exciting and the class as a whole is going to be really, really good this year."
