Denton Guyer moved to 5-6A during realignment to face off versus Coppell, Lewisville, Flower Mound, Flower Mound Marcus, Denton Braswell, Hebron and Little Elm. 

The Wildcats are loaded with college-level talent, especially in 2027, boasting up to five P4-level talents. 

2024-2027 College Prospects:

2025 OL Vance Adams (6'5, 275): Adams is slated to take over left tackle responsibilities for Syracuse signee Willie Goodacre. The second-team all-district selection is catching interest from Oklahoma State, Texas State, Arkansas State, Tulsa and Purdue and has a camp stop locked in at OSU. 

2025 OL Quan Byers (6'6, 315): An intriguing offensive tackle prospect with long arms and a big body. Byers has plans to see UTSA in March and Houston in April. Purdue, TCU, Texas State, Arkansas, Arkansas State and Oklahoma State are showing interest. 

2026 ATH Kaedyn Cobbs (6'1, 190): A versatile athlete who will play a significant role on offense at running back after spending most of last season playing safety. He is the younger brother of UTSA RB Kaedric Cobbs, and the Roadrunners were his first offer. He has plans to attend Baylor's spring game. 

2026 WR Corbin Glasco (5'9, 170): Glasco currently has one scholarship offer from UTSA, but with tremendous to-end speed, he is one of the players who could see his recruitment spike this spring. He will be a Swiss army knife in Guyer's fast-paced offense and the leading returning receiver. 

2027 DT Khyren Haywood (6'1, 260): Haywood played wire-to-wire on varsity as a freshman last season and shined. He's been adding weight and strength to an impressive frame. Offers will continue to pour in, but he already has Arizona State, Baylor, Houston, North Texas and SMU. Haywood was named as one of the Top 25 recruits in 2027 in DCTF Rising magazine.

2027 QB Zephyr Kreye (6'3, 195): Kreye is quickly growing into a specimen at QB. With hard work in the weight room this offseason, he has added at least 10 pounds to his frame. He seems to be getting better and better with each day and will be heavily recruited. 

2027 WR DJ Reese (5'9, 160): Reese is another valuable offensive weapon who will be a high-level D1 prospect. He has verified 4.58 40-yard dash speed. North Texas was recently his first offer, but it won't be his last. 

2027 TE/DE Zane Rowe (6'5, 225): Rowe is one of the top recruits in the 2027 cycle, already earning 24 offers from some of the nation's top-rated programs on both sides of the ball. He's a strong prospect who plays with a physical style and has long arms and an ideal frame. Rowe was named as one of the Top 25 recruits in 2027 in DCTF Rising magazine. 

2025 TE Jackson Shockley (6'4, 220): Shockley, named a DCTF three-star on Friday, hit a recent offer boom, securing scholarships from Air Force, Louisiana Tech and Tulsa. He has plans to make an official visit to Texas Tech on March 29th and is receiving interest from Baylor and Oklahoma State.

2025 DT Xavier Ukponu (6'3, 290): With 31 offers, Ukponu is one of the state's most heavily offered prospects regardless of position. He chews up blocks, plays with leverage and uses his hands well to disengage. When asked about college standouts, he mentioned Texas, Texas A&M, Florida, LSU, Oregon, USC, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Cal and Kansas. He has taken recent unofficial visits to Texas, Texas A&M and Florida.

2027 ATH Paxton Williams (5'11, 165): The coaches at Guyer are buzzing about his potential. This four-sport athlete (football, basketball, baseball, track) recently took home MVP honors at The Show by NXGN. 

Other Names to Know:  2025 DT Cameron Elliott (6'1, 270), 2025 OL Brody Hamilton (6'4, 290), 2026 RB DJ Black (5'11, 215), 2026 LB Ryder Garcia (6'2, 175), 2026 LB Matt Smejkal (6'1, 205), 2026 S Owen Whistler (5'11, 160)
