UTEP Offers Americas Standout Running Back Aaron Dumas
Americas High School standout Aaron Dumas just earned his 15th Divison I offer when UTEP offered the 3-star running back on Friday.
Dumas, the 5-foot-9 tailback, holds a mighty offer from Arizona State, along with top Group of 5 offers from Houston, SMU, UTSA and North Texas. He has been one of the most prolific running backs to come out of El Paso since the likes of Deion Hankins from Parkland. The incoming senior had strong back-to-back seasons for Americas.
During the Trailblazers' 10-2 (5-0 1-6A) district title championship season in 2019, Dumas finished with 3,184 rushing yards and 36 rushing touchdowns as a junior. He had four games where he rushed over 300 yards (Pebble Hills, Oñate, El Dorado and Frenship). As a sophomore, he rushed for 2,332 yards and totaled 15 rushing touchdowns. Dumas is not just one of the best tailbacks in the city, but also one of the most productive rushers in the state of Texas.
According to Sun Devil Source, Dumas started getting interest from Arizona State around the Sun Bowl. They had one spot open for next year's recruiting class and decided to offer the El Paso native.
“At that point, I was really excited. It was my first Power 5 offer, too, so I was already doing backflips in my room. It was just a great feeling and whenever the green light is ready to be shined, I'd like to go ahead and make a decision from there," Dumas told Sun Devil Source.
Now the Miners, who will have fellow El Pasoan running backs Deion Hankins and Reynaldo Flores next year, have thrown their name into the recruiting battle for Dumas.
