Williams (6-foot-6, 260-pounds) who is one of the more impressive athletes in the 2012 class. Oak Hills has its own Michigan pledge in offensive lineman Caleb Stacey. At 6-foot-4, 280-pounds, Stacey is a hard nose run blocker who looks to drive his man down the field on each snap. He is joined by two under-the-radar offensive linemen in twin brothers Dustin and Derrek Ross. Both players have scored 33 on their ACT's and stand 6-foot-4, 285-pounds. Several Ivy League schools want the Ross twins and a few Mid American Conference programs are showing interest as well.

Thursday: Overland Park (KS) Blue Valley West vs. Roeland Park (KS) Bishop Miege
Prospects to watch: Junior quarterback Montel Cozart and senior wideout Tre Parmalee - son of Kansas City Chiefs tight ends coach and former NFL standout Bernie Parmalee - form a potent duo for Bishop Miege. Cozart is a dual-threat quarterback who is completing more than 60-percent of his passes this season, and while Parmalee is somewhat undersized he's a slot receiver prospect with great quickness, hands and route-running skills.
