It’s important to remember that the art of recruiting – analyzing, grading and ranking recruits – is just that: an art. And like most art, its beauty and value is dependent on the beholder.
That’s why DCTF’s annual Super Team – our picks for the best recruits across Texas at each position, as put together by our recruiting guru Randy Rodgers – always garners so much debate. And every time a first-team Super Teamer commits, it’s big news across the Lone Star State.
So here we are, a few weeks from the kickoff of the 2013 Texas high school football season, and first-team Super Teamers are flying off the proverbial shelves. We even had another one commit this weekend, when Dallas Skyline OL Ty Barrett committed to TCU.
The question is…who’s left? Which first-team Super Teamers remain uncommitted at this point? Let’s take a gander.
Mount Pleasant WR K.D. Cannon
The dominating wideout from East Texas – he led all public schools with 1,592 yards receiving a year ago – is taking his time with his recruiting, and he’s got plenty of suitors. He recently narrowed his list down to five: Baylor, Florida, Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Texas Tech. Can the Bears or Red Raiders keep the talented pass-catcher in the Lone Star State?
Hebron DB Jamal Adams
Our Super Team Defensive Player of the Year is the biggest fish left out there, and boy, would he be a class-maker for anyone. As talented a safety to come out of Texas in a while, Adams has offers from basically every FBS team in America. He’s made visits to five schools – Texas, Texas A&M, Ohio State, Ole Miss and Florida – but do they hold an advantage?
Arlington Martin DE Myles Garrett
Is your squad in the market for a playmaking edge-rusher whom Randy Rodgers called “the best true pass rusher in the 2014 class”? Then Garrett is your man, after notching 17 TFL and nine sacks for the Warriors. Like everyone else on this list, there are few teams that he doesn’t hold offers from, including Baylor, TCU, Texas and Texas A&M here at home.
Coppell DE Solomon Thomas
There are few defensive linemen in Texas with the versatility of Thomas, who has the speed and quickness to play on the edge and the size – 6-4 and 262 pounds – to play tackle. Combine that with outstanding academics, and you can see why every school in the country wants him to sign with them come February.
Beaumont Ozen CB Tony Brown
When Randy Rodgers declares a player ‘maybe the fastest football player in Texas”, you know that’s some high praise. That’s what Rodgers has to say about this lockdown corner, who also boasts unusual size (6-1, 190) for a cover corner. He’s also scheduled to graduate at mid-year, which helps to explain why everyone from Alabama to West Virginia wants his talents.
