Prospect on the Rise

Rockwall-Heath 2023 TE Eli Finley (6'5, 245) picked up his first three offers from Oregon, North Texas and Louisiana-Monroe.

Finley missed his junior season due to an ACL injury but has garnered a lot of attention during the spring evaluation period. 

Finley figures to be a big part of the Rockwall-Heath offense in 2022.  

Commit of the Week

Fort Bend Marshall 2023 DE Zachary Chapman (6'5, 250) committed to TCU over offers from Baylor, Houston, Texas Tech, Colorado, Mississippi State and Purdue. 

Chapman is rated as a DCTF three-star prospect, checking in at No. 54 in the DCTF Hot 100. 

Next Level Athlete Scouting Report: A jumbo defensive end who is a run-stopping force. Chapman has long arms that allow him to disengage from blockers and the strength to overpower at the line of scrimmage.

Underclassman of the Week

Timpson 2024 ATH Terry Bussey (5'10, 170) picked up new offers from TCU and Baylor this week. 

He also owns offers from SMU, Texas Tech, SFA, UTSA, Arkansas State and Louisiana Tech.

Bussey is one of the state's most exciting two-way athletes. As a sophomore in 2021, he racked up over 3,000 yards of offense and scored 50 touchdowns. On defense, he collected 73 tackles and seven interceptions. 

Recruit of the Week

Wylie East 2023 DE Anthony James (6'5, 245) is back on the recruiting market.  

After spending more than a year on Texas A&M's commitment list, James backed off of his pledge to consider other options. 

James has reported offers from schools such as Baylor, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma State and Oregon. He has scheduled an official visit with Washington (6/24).

James is a DCTF four-star prospect, checking in as the No. 6 DE in the state.
