Prospect on the Rise 

Houston St. Thomas 2021 QB Maddox Kopp (6'4, 210) picked up a new offer from Houston. 

The Cougars join a list that features Central Michigan, Cornell, Lafayette, Lehigh and Holy Cross. 

Kopp was one of the top standouts at the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 Showcase in Houston. 

Commit of the Week

Lake Travis 2021 TE Lake McRee (6'4, 210) committed to USC. 

The one-time Texas pledge committed to the Trojans over Auburn, LSU, Penn State, Purdue and Washington. 

McRee is rated as a DCTF three-star prospect. 

Next Level Athlete Scouting Report: McRee missed his junior season with injury but showed that he has many versatile quality traits as a sophomore. His intelligence is evident. He can be located in many locations and perform many jobs on the field. McRee blocks well as point of attack tight end or H-Back. As a receiver, he catches with hands, finds holes in the defense, and can take a hit and deliver a hit.

Underclassman of the Week

Arlington Martin 2022 DE RJ Cooper (6'4, 220) was named a four-star prospect and was one of 35 on the five-star watchlist in the Class of 2022. 

Cooper emerged on the recruiting scene with a strong sophomore campaign in 2019. He racked up 61 total tackles, 14 tackles for a loss, three sacks, and forced four fumbles on his way to 4-6A Deefsnive Sophomore MVP honors.

Cooper has already collected offers from 23 colleges like Baylor, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Alabama, LSU, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Stanford and USC.
