The Headliner

David "DJ" Hicks (6'4, 270) - Katy Paetow: The No. 1 player in the state has the power to play inside and the speed off the edge to terrorize quarterbacks. Hicks has opportunities to play for any school in the nation, but he has been concentrating most on Texas, Texas A&M, Alabama, LSU, Miami (FL), Michigan State, Oklahoma and Oregon.  

The Steal

Ashton Porter (6'3, 245) - Cy-Ranch: Northwestern recently picked up a commitment from this DCTF four-star and it is a true out-of-state steal as Porter also had in-state offers from Baylor and Texas. Porter is a well-rounded defensive end who can overpower to disrupt on contact or use hands and finesse to get heat on the quarterback. 

The Sleeper

Terrance Green (6'5, 265) - Cy-Woods: Green blew up in the spring evaluation period, securing offers from programs like Texas, Florida, Miami (FL), Michigan State, Oregon and USC. He has already been on an official visit to see Michigan State and has an upcoming trip with USC. Green is another defensive lineman who could play anywhere along the defensive front with the length and reach of an offensive tackle.
