ROUND ROCK, Texas -- Scout.com's Midlands team of analysts and reporters break down who they are most excited to see on the offensive side of the ball during the first two days of action as the "Small Schools" take the stage in the Texas State 7-on-7 Championships...

TE Mavin Saunders (6'5, 240) - Houston Kinkaid - 2014
I loved Saunders' game on tape, but am excited to see what he is bringing to the table with my own two eyes. He is an elite level pass catcher who could push for a fourth star and a spot in the Scout300. He has committed to Florida State.

Stidham already has big offers.

QB Jarrett Stidham (6'4, 190) - Stephenville - 2015
Has yet to start a varsity season, but has picked up offers from Baylor, Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech after impressing on the camp circuit this summer. If the past few months are any indication of his junior season, it's more likely than not that more offers are headed his way.

QB Jarrett Stidham (6'4, 190) - Stephenville - 2015
Granted 7v7 competition is not the truest platform for evaluation, Stidham proved in the Arlington Bowie qualifier his ability to read defenses and connect with receivers on the fly. Just a natural athlete with quick instincts and fun to watch.

QB Nathan Elliott (6'1, 190) - Celina - 2015
Have seen him in spots and in the tournament last year, but have not had the opportunity to see him at all this spring or summer. Looking forward to seeing the upcoming junior sling it a few times.

QB Jarrett Stidham (6'4, 190) - Stephenville - 2014

It's been more than a month now since Stidham lit Texas's camp on fire, earning an offer from the Longhorns. Despite only throwing three varsity passes — Stidham was a highly effective receiver last year with more than 800 yards and 11 touchdowns — he's moved to the front of the pack in the 2015 quarterback race and could push to be a top-10 player in-state overall.
