Prospect on the Rise

College Station 2022 OL/DL Conner Lingren (6'5, 305) picked up a huge in-state offer from TCU. 

Lingren, who is one of the top uncommitted prospects left on the board in the 2022 cycle, also holds offers from schools like Arizona State, Purdue and Vanderbilt. 

Lingren helped lead the Cougars to the 5A Division I state title game. 

Commit of the Week

Spring Westfield 2022 DT Anthony "AJ" Holmes (6'2, 270) announced he signed with Houston in the Early Signing Period.

Holmes checks in at No. 77 in the DCTF Hot 100.

Next Level Athlete Scouting Report: Great defensive line prospect with lots of room for development. He has a strong knack for finding the football. He hails from a football program that has produced solid Division I talent for over a decade, and Holmes is no exception. 

Underclassmen of the Week

Mansfield 2023 DE Kaleb James (6'4, 250) committed to Arkansas over offers from Baylor, SMU, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. 

Holmes checks in at No. 47 in the DCTF Hot 100.

Scouting Report: James is a powerful presence in the trenches with the strength and athleticism to play a number of positions along the defensive front. He spends time at defensive tackle and defensive end, and he is a constant disruption.

Recruit of the Week

Fort Bend Marshall 2023 DE Zachary Chapman (6'5, 250) took home DL MVP honors following a dominant performance at the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 Showcase in Houston.

Chapman has offers from Baylor, Houston, Texas Tech, Colorado and Georgia Tech, but his offer list will soon be doubled or tripled. 

Chapman is a jumbo defensive end who had a dominant performance in one-on-ones. He has long arms that allow him to disengage from blockers and the strength to overpower.
