Prospect on the Rise 

Dallas Parish Episcopal 2021 OT Austin Uke (6'4, 265) has been on a fast rise in recruiting. 

Uke, who is currently committed to Holy Cross, picked up new offers from Penn State and Florida State, giving him a half-dozen new offers over the past three weeks.

The Nittany Lions and Seminoles join programs like SMU, Houston, Vanderbilt and USC on Uke's quick-growing offer list. 

Uke was named a four-star prospect by 247Sports on Wednesday. 

Commit of the Week

Shadow Creek OLB Terrence Cooks II (6'3, 205) committed to Texas over offers from schools like Baylor, Texas A&M, Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Oklahoma and more. 

Next Level Athlete Scouting Report: An outside linebacker prospect who can stay on the field for all three downs. He is a pass rusher who runs well in the open field and can cover ground quickly to combat the run or cover routes. 

Cooks checks in as the No. 3 in the state and the No. 49 prospect overall in the DCTF Hot 100. 

Underclassmen of the Week

Mount Pleasant 2022 DT Tre Emory (6'2, 280) picked up his first Big 12 offer from Oklahoma State. 

The Cowboys join a growing offer list that includes schools like Arkansas, Tennessee and UTSA. 

Emory is a defensive tackle recruit with rare size and explosive ability, so keep a close eye on his recruitment as it is set to explode as more schools take a look at his junior tape. 

Recruit of the Week

Lubbock Estacado 2021 WR TJ Steele (6'0, 180) had a massive game in a first-round 48-6 playoff win over Pecos. 

The North Texas commit hauled in six catches for 236 yards and scored three total touchdowns, averaging 39.33 yards per catch in the win. 

Steele, who is nominated for Mr. Texas Football Player of the Week, picked UNT over offers from schools like Kansas and Tulsa.
