Dorial Green-Beckham, a 6-foot-6, 220-pound wide receiver from Hillcrest High in Mo., was the wire to wire number one player in the region. His high school career started with a touchdown, as the first pass he ever caught was for a score. His high school career also ended with a touchdown when he reeled in a record-breaking 79-yarder during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Now the only question that remains is who he will be catching them for in college. Will it be Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma or Texas? In a few more days it will be known, as 'DGB' is set to announce his decision around 9:00 am CST on National Signing Day.
Checking in at solid number two is Mario Edwards Jr., a 6-foot-4, 290-pound defensive end from Denton Ryan High in Texas. Edwards is super quick for a player with his measurements and uses a full repertoire of pass rushing moves to abuse offensive lineman. Edwards will be playing for Florida State in college. Also worth mentioning along the defensive line are 6-foot-2, 280-pound Malcom Brown from Brenham High and 6-foot-6, 270-pound Javonte Magee from San Antonio Sam Houston. Brown will play at Texas and Magee is slated to sign with Baylor.
The fight for the top running back spot was on that was pretty hotly contested and it will be debated well in to their college years. Both Johnathan Gray, a 5-foot-11, 195-pounder from Aledo High and Trey Williams, a 5-foot-8, 190-pounder from DeKaney High led their teams to State Titles in 2011 and then went on to National All-American contests. Gray will sign with Texas and Williams is the highest rated recruit on the Texas A&M commit list.
