Prospect on the Rise

Houston Westside 2023 DT Jayden Gaines (6'3, 260) picked up a new P5 offer from Oregon State. 

Gaines previously announced a top five of North Texas, Sam Houston, Marshall, Washington State and Wyoming. 

Commit of the Week

Round Rock 2023 DT Ansel Nedore (6'3, 255) committed to Texas Tech over offers from Baylor, Houston, SMU, TCU and Texas. 

Nedore is rated as the No. 51 prospect in the DCTF Hot 100. 

Next Level Athlete Scouting Report: Nedore is an athletic defensive line prospect who plays inside in a 4-3 front. Long arms and an impressive physical stature made him a prospect who quickly propelled towards the top of recruiting boards once the word got out about him. Nedore gets off the line quickly to give offensive linemen fits and uses his long arms to bat down passes at the line of scrimmage.

Underclassman of the Week

It was a big week for Longview 2024 RB Taylor Tatum (5'10, 195). 

Tatum picked up two new scholarship offers from Auburn and Duke and is up to 21 offers. He also has offers from Baylor, Houston, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and USC. 

Additionally, Tatum earned four-star status at DCTF and picked up an invitation to play in the 2024 All-American Bowl. 

Recruit of the Week

Manor 2023 RB Quinten Joyner (5'10, 190) accepted an invitation to play in the All-American Bowl in San Antonio on Jan. 7, 2023. 

Joyner is verbally committed to USC. 

In 2021, Joyner was one of the state's most productive running backs. He rushed for 2,494 yards and 31 touchdowns.
