WR Jerand Bradley (6'5, 190) - DeSoto

Bradley has a sick combination of size and skill. He is a prospect that you can get the ball to on any down, and he is an elite weapon in the red zone. A move to DeSoto has not slowed him down as he continues to put up numbers and amaze. He is rated as the No. 73 prospect in the DCTF Hot 100 but has made a strong case for four-star status. Bradley is committed to Texas Tech. 

OT Ty Buchanan (6'6, 290) - Calallen

The USC commit is pushing up rankings lists powered by a strong offseason and good tape from the start of the 2020 year. He shows a real mean streak and the type of awareness upfront that makes him a strong candidate to push into the DCTF Hot 100 sooner than later. 

DE Chris Murray (6'3, 240) - Wichita Falls Hirschi

Defensive players with the ability to get after the quarterback are a hot commodity, and Murray has continued his development as one of the state's best pure pass rushers. The TCU commit has been impressive week in and week out. Murray is currently rated as a three-star, but it will be hard to deny a rankings bump if he continues at this pace. 

OT Remington Strickland (6'5, 290) - Fort Bend Christian Academy

Strickland is quite simply a monster. He is not even currently rated in the DCTF Hot 100, but that will be changing soon. The question is how high he will vault up the list? He is an impressive specimen with the technique of an offensive tackle and an offensive guard's strength. Strickland has around 30 scholarship offers with schools like Houston, Memphis, Michigan, Oklahoma, SMU and Virginia Tech standing out. 

OG Tate Williams (6'4, 265) - Wall 

The Baylor commit burst onto the scene when he committed to the Bears and continued to impress. He is currently rated as the No. 5 OG in the state, but from what we have seen thus far, he will challenge Bryce Foster for the honor of being No. 1. That battle is exciting. Foster has the experience against stiff 6A competition, but Williams has a very high upside.
