Prospect on the Rise

Manor 2023 DE Princewill Umanmielen (6'4, 215) picked up a new offer from Missouri. 

The DCTF Hot 100 member has 19 scholarship offers, but we are keeping a close eye on Houston and SMU in-state. 

Umanmielen is the brother of Florida defensive lineman Princely Umanmielen. 

DCTF's Mike Craven watched Umanmielen in a week 4 win over Copperas Cove. 

"Coaches at Manor will tell you that Umanmielen is more physically gifted than his older brother," Craven reported.

Commit of the Week

Tyler Legacy 2023 DE Jordan Renaud (6'4, 245) committed to Alabama over Oklahoma. 

Renaud is rated as a DCTF four-star prospect, checking in at No. 14 overall. 

Next Level Athlete Scouting Report: Renaud is a big, twitchy presence off the edge. He comes off the ball low and fast and he uses his length and strength to quickly separate from opponents and get to the ball. 

Underclassman of the Week

Ennis 2025 WR Gracen Harris (5'10, 170) picked up a new offer from TCU this week.

With an offer from the Horned Frogs, Harris now has nine offers (Baylor, Kansas, Mississippi State, Pittsburgh, SMU, TCU, Texas Tech, UTSA and West Virginia). 

Harris had a big freshman year in 2021 (771 receptions, 1,138 yards, 11 TDs) and has followed it up with a fast start in 2022 (29 receptions, 372 yards, two TDs). 

Recruit of the Week

Mineola 2023 ATH Dawson Pendergrass (6'3, 215) had a huge game in 44-43 win over Bullard, earning a nomination for Mr. Texas Football Player of the Week. 

The DCTF three-star rushed for 311 yards and three touchdowns, had 66 receiving yards and scored a touchdown, threw for 50 yards and a touchdown, racked up five tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown and scored three two-point conversions. 

Pendergrass is committed to playing his college football at Baylor.
