ILB Tyrone Brown (6'0, 210) - West Orange-Stark - HUDL
Brown is very athletic on junior tape and is, at times, dominant against the competition that he faces. He clearly stands out. He shows good athleticism in pass coverage and closes on the ball quickly.
S Cicero Caston (6'1, 196) - Weatherford - HUDL
It does not take long to see that Caston is a knock-back, physical tackler coming downhill from his spot at safety. Receivers shod be afraid of coming across the middle of the field because he will make them pay. Continued development in pass defense will make him one of the state's best.
WR Javon Gipson (6'3, 180) - George Ranch - HUDL
Speed is the name of Gipson's game. He is an elite track runner who can consistently and effectively track the deep ball when given the opportunity. Look for him to continue to improve his game with more opportunities in the passing game going forward.
S Romario Noel (6'3, 200) - Cy-Ranch - HUDL
Noel is an exciting prospect. He is extremely athletic and agile for a player with his length and size. He is relatively new to the game, having played for only a couple of years. Noel shows good instincts for the game and has tremendous range.
CB Mark Wilson (6'0, 170) - Clear Lake - HUDL
Wilson tracks the football extremely well. His long arms make him appear taller and allows him to match-up well with the bigger receivers. Plays safety but could also play on an island is able to show some man cover skills when spinning down and defending slot wide receivers on tape. He is a good, physical tackler in space and his experience at safety should allow him to be a versatile fit in any defense.
OG Blake Boensich (6'3, 320) - Needville - HUDL
A big-bodied high school offensive tackle who will likely move inside once he arrives in college. He is a two-sport athlete (shot put) who does have the strength to be a force in one-on-one situations.
OG Faaeanuu Pepe (6'4, 325) - Orange Lutheran (Calif.) - HUDL
A mauler in the run game with experience at the high school level playing inside. He is a smart lineman who understands how to pick up stunts and knows his assignments.
ILB Kenny Seymour (6'1, 225) - FB Marshall - HUDL
Seymour sees the ball well and reads through the traffic quickly to find the football. His size and mass allow him to make sound tackles and take ball carriers to the ground quickly. He has good burst and displays good closing speed.
ILB Aidan Siano (6'1, 225) - Prosper - HUDL
Siano is a big, strong inside linebacker who shows good instincts and is quick to diagnose plays. He plays downhill and is physical enough to play through blocks. Siano is a knock-back tackler with a closing burst. Shows good finesse and quickness on pass rush from inside or outside and shows above-average capability in pass coverage (zone pass drops).
OLB Izaiah Kelley (6'2, 175) - Lubbock Coronado - HUDL
Kelley has the "it" factor. He is a versatile defender who runs well for an OLB and is built more like a safety at this point in his natural development. He will find the ball. He is a legacy player in a family of athletes from the Lubbock area, so he should adjust well to the college game.
QB Preston Stone (6'2, 205) - Parish Episcopal - HUDL
Stone is a true leader who has a good arm, and he spins it well. He is a well-rounded quarterback who brings a little bit of everything to the table, including improvisational skills that help him extend plays and apply pressure on defenses.
S Devin Lemear (6'1, 175) - Manor - HUDL
Lemear is the type of safety who is all over the field, making plays and competes hot-blooded. He can and will get better with weight gain. He loves to hit, so the more mass he can add, the better. He likely sticks at safety, but he does have some corner skills. He has long limbs and shows good instincts in pursuit of the ball.
QB Alexander Honig (6'5, 230) - Germany - HUDL
A big, strong-armed quarterback who earned an offer from the Horned Frogs after an impressive performance at a camp session last summer. It is a remarkable quarterback class in the Lone Star State in 2021, so this should be a clue that the TCU staff is high on Honig's potential.
ATH Billy Bowman (5'10, 175) - Denton Ryan - HUDL
Solidly built two-way standout with dangerous return game ability. Looks like a running back but plays with athleticism and fluidity of a defensive back. Explosive with terrific long speed. Great with the ball in his hands and in coverage. Natural football player with outstanding athleticism.
OT/OG Hayden Conner (6'6, 340) - Katy Taylor - HUDL
Conner is naturally strong and plays with aggression. He finishes blocks and quickly moves defenders in the run game. He has a strong punch and wins when he gets his hands on defenders. Projects as a right tackle or guard at the next level.
ATH Juan Davis (6'4, 217) - Everman - HUDL
High school QB and receiver who projects to tight end in college. Good height and frame length with a ton of space for added mass. Raw as a pass-catcher and blocker but owns promising physical tools. Can win balls over smaller defenders with go-get-it ability. High ceiling as a red-zone option.
OLB Derrick Harris (6'2, 212) - New Caney - HUDL
Long, lean, rangy outside linebacker who could grow into a hybrid edge rusher or play off the line as a traditional linebacker. Plenty of frame space to add weight. Gets off quickly and gets low when rushing the passer. Flashes impressive closing speed in pursuit
QB Jalen Milroe (6'2, 195) - Katy Tompkins - HUDL
Milroe passes the eyeball test, and he's a quarterback who can make you pay running or throwing. His size and speed make him a lethal threat to score anytime he pulls the ball down to run, and he has a howitzer for an arm. High upside.
DE Ja'Tavion Sanders (6'4, 230) - Denton Ryan - HUDL
An elite two-way prospect who could play high-major tight end or edge defender. Flashes terrific ball skills relative to size and two-way designation. Quick off the ball with a natural edge-bending ability as a pass-rusher. One of the state's best in 2021.
WR Shadrach Banks (6'0, 205) - North Shore - HUDL
One of the top prospects in the state regardless of position. Banks is known for his ability to make the big play and can rack up a lot of yards after the catch. His size and power allow him to run through arm tackles efficiently.
QB Eli Stowers (6'4, 215) - Denton Guyer - HUDL
In addition to football, he is a standout in basketball and a state champion high jumper. However, he is a cerebral, pass first dual-threat QB with a big arm and the ability to make all the throws. He is a powerful, dangerous runner when he pulls the ball down.
OT Trey Zuhn (6'6, 300) - Fossil Ridge (Co.) - HUDL
Zuhn does not have a lot of highlights on Hudl, but it is hard not to be impressed by his frame and strength. Length of a true tackle, but it seems like he could play inside to me.
WR Jerand Bradley (6'5, 190) - Plano John Paul II - HUDL
Bradley is a tall, long wide receiver with a solid frame to add weight. Bradley gets off the ball well and generates to his top speed very quickly. He has soft, natural hands, can elevate, and has a big catch radius. Bradley does a great job of tracking and adjusting to the ball.
QB Behren Morton (6'2, 180) - Eastland - HUDL
He plays at a smaller school in West Texas but has big school talent. He is an intelligent quarterback who processes information quickly. He's a pocket passer but is agile enough to be productive outside of the pocket when needed. He can make all the throws.
