One of the most anticipated features of the Recruiting Special Edition – as with all DCTF magazines – are the Daveys, the DCTF staff’s awards for the best and brightest in Texas. We hand out awards for every FBS school in Texas’ recruiting class. Here’s a sneak peek at a couple awards you’ll see in the Recruiting Special Edition, available on Friday, February 15.
Biggest Early Impact: Lufkin WR JaBryce Taylor
It’s been quite a while since SMU managed to get a wide receiver recruit with as gaudy of stats as the Lufkin star. Taylor led the Panthers in receiving during his junior year, but took things to an entirely new level as a senior, catching 87 passes for 1,628 yards and 13 touchdowns in leading the Panthers to a 9-4 record. The college game moves at a different speed, but expect big things from Taylor early.
Best Pedigree: West Orange-Stark DB Quentin Tezeno
When Houston-area high school football fans talk about the local football factories, West Orange-Stark is mentioned pretty quickly. That’s because the Mustangs routinely put out outstanding prospects, especially in the secondary, like Seattle Seahawks DB Earl Thomas and former Dallas Cowboys CB Kevin Smith. Could Tezeno, a fleet-footed corner who chose the Miners very early, be the next in the long line of terrific WO-S products?
Most Decorated: Dallas Jesuit WR Jake Oliver
Simply put, Jake Oliver is one of the very best players in Texas high school football history. The state’s all-time leader in career receptions with 308 and second with 4,656 receiving yards, the 6-4 Oliver is as polished a receiver to come to Austin in a long time. Expectations will be high, especially right off the bat.
Most Promising Defender: Denton Guyer DB John Schilleci
At 6-0 and 190 pounds, Schilleci was a dominant force as a cornerback for the 4A Division I state champion Wildcats, bullying smaller receivers. Schilleci, who chose North Texas over Washington State, notched 7 tackles in the title game at cornerback, but will likely move to safety on the next level. With his blend of size and speed, he could see the field quickly.
