CENTEX 2016 DL GET FOURTH STAR: After watching his sophomore film, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Killeen Shoemaker's Kendell Jones picked up his fourth star in the recent rankings update. A 6-foot-4, 300-pound prospect, Jones holds offers from Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Baylor, and Arkansas and will likely pick up a good number during this spring and his junior season.

(What currently unranked 2016 prospects could also join that elite group? Our Midlands recruiting team takes a look in this week's Recruiting Roundtable).

Ohio State COMES TO TEXAS: P.J. Mbanasor, the highly sought-after defensive back from Pflugerville Hendrickson, will get a B1G visitor today, per Scout's Jason Higdon.

The 6-foot-2, 182-pound prospect, a Scout-four star, is well into double digits, with recent offers from Texas and Florida. P.J. Mbanasor says he's hoping to make his decision sooner rather than later.
