Houston Texans SQT Preview - Part 1

Scout.com takes a look at the first FOX Sports Southwest 7-on-7 State Championship qualifying tournament that will be held at Reliant Stadium on May 19-20. There will be two days of action as teams fight to qualify.

Saturday, May 19

Pool A:
Lamar, Tomball, Cinco Ranch, Elsik

Pool B:
Manvel, Katy Taylor, Klein Collins, Dulles

Pool C:
P.A. Memorial, Channelview, Willis, Dickinson

Pool D:
Friendswood, Pearland Dawson, Alief Taylor, Bellaire

Breakdown - Should be a fun day of 7-on-7 competition as there are some well known and talented teams in pools on both sides of the bracket, but Houston Lamar returns a team that is loaded with players that helped them advance to the State Championship game last season. A sleeper pick could be Manvel who has a talented squad and top-notch experience. A match-up in the semis between the two squads could be very entertaining.

The Talent - This tourney is just loaded down with prospects. To many to mention them all. Torrodney Prevot (pictured above) will play linebacker for Alief Taylor and is one of the most heavily recruited players in the country. The state's top ranked corner, Dulles High's Maurice Smith, will be trying to lock down receivers in Pool B. Pearland Dawson running back James White will be taking his talents to Texas A&M and is already rated as 4-star recruit.
