If you follow El Paso High School football closely, you knew it was only a matter of time before El Dorado wide receiver Tyquez Hampton was offered by UTEP after attending UTEP's camp this past summer.
The 6'2, 200 pound Hampton who runs a reported 4.47 40-yard dash is having a very productive junior year at El Dorado after transferring from Chapin.
Hampton has developed into a legit big play receiver this year in El Dorado's explosive offense, and could very well become a big time prospect by the end of this season.
He is currently averaging 29.9 yards per catch, and has four receiving touchdowns this season for El Dorado who is currently averaging 59 points in their first three games this season.
As a sophomore running back at Chapin last season, Hampton rushed for 475 yards and six rushing touchdowns before transferring to El Dorado for his junior year.
It looks like UTEP is Hampton's first FBS offer, although once he makes the recruiting camp rounds after this season, Hampton could be the highest rated 2017 El Paso prospect next to Americas running back Josh Fields.
He has already received interest from Florida, and Texas A&M, and has unofficially visited both schools,
The versatile offensive weapon torched Eastlake High School in a season opening win with four catches for 142 yards, all four catches were touchdowns helping the Aztecs hang 70 points on the board to open the season.
If UTEP is able to swing an early commitment from Hampton it would be a huge get not only in continuing to keep El Paso's top talent here in town, but could add its highest rated prospect in a while.
