1. Anthony Wheeler
Dallas (Texas) Skyline
6'2 | 225
Evaluation: One of the more physically imposing players in the class at this early juncture. He looks like a kid's wrestling figurine. He lines up at defensive end and linebacker on his sophomore film and makes a good amount of plays. he runs well for a bigger framed linebacker and should be a perfect fit as a MLB unless he grows in to a true DE over the course of his natural development. Hits like a ton of bricks and ball carriers do not escape his grasp.
2. Semaj Thomas
Fort Worth (Texas) Southwest
6'3 | 225
Recruiting Interests: Committed to TCU
Evaluation: Thomas is an intriguing prospect. He is an aggressive player. He spend most of his time at linebacker in 2013, moving from defensive end. So he has experiencing playing on the edge of the defense. Could he be that hybrid? He gets off blocks well and uses his hands and watching those examples on film he shows his above average strength. A bit raw on his tackling technique, but if he hits or gets a hand on the ball carrier it is over quickly.
3. Landis Durham
Plano (Texas) Plano East Sr
6'3 | 228
Recruiting Interests: Boise State, Boston College, Illinois, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Southern Methodist, TCU, Texas, Tulsa, USC, Vanderbilt, Washington
Evaluation: A high level linebacker target. Has great size and can really run well for a kid that big, whiich means that he is really athletic. He closes on the ball really well and hits like a ton of bricks. He is athletic to play or remian at linebacker, but with his size and frame it would not be out of the question to also regard him as a possible DE look, but I like him as a throw-back MLB with plus size.
