TXHSFB Preview: Paschal vs. South Hills

Scout.com identifies a few FBS-caliber underclassmen in Thursday's game between Fort Worth Paschal and Fort Worth South Hills.

Three potential standout underclassmen will be on the field Thursday night at Handley Stadium in east Fort Worth as Paschal High School faces South Hills High School.

Thursday's game serves as Paschal's season-opener, while South Hills enters the contest 1-0 after thrashing Joshua (Texas) High 54-13.

Here's a look at some names we'll be watching Thursday night:

Dylan Thomas, 2016 WR/ATH, Fort Worth Paschal -- Thomas (pictured above) has already reeled in offers from TCU and SMU and should continue to get more. The 6-foot 1/2, 185-pounder is very athletic and versatile. He played quarterback for Paschal as a sophomore, accounting for 2,887 total yards of offense: 1,953 passing, 934 rushing. Thomas threw 16 touchdown passes with only three interceptions and ran for 12 scores. Thomas was laser-timed at 4.60 in the 40 in early May at the Dallas Nike Football SPARQ Combine in Arlington. He impressed us during 7v7 season in June and is primed for a huge junior season. Don't be surprised if he lines up at quarterback, receiver, safety, and cornerback this fall.

Tracin Wallace, 2017 QB, Fort Worth South Hills -- the 6-foot-1, 170-pounder is an athletic, dual-threat quarterback who is a serous threat with his feet. In South Hills' season-opener, Wallace scored on a 75-yard read-keeper up the middle and threw touchdown passes of 46 and 48 yards on routes within 10 yards that receivers turned into long scores. Wallace, who had a couple more runs of 20-plus yards, has adequate velocity and gets rid of the ball quickly, which helps his receivers get a head start on making open-field moves against their defenders. Wallace is a long-strider with a long frame that should continue to grow. Wallace has reported interest from schools such as Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas, and Texas A&M.

Tylan Wallace, 2017 WR, Fort Worth South Hills -- like his brother Tracin, Tylan Wallace is about 6-foot-1, 170-pounder with pretty dynamic athleticism. The first highlight of his season-opening effort agains Joshua is an impressive 58-yard jet sweep touchdown. Tylan is also a fairly long-striding player who accelerates well. He scored a couple more long touchdowns, including a 48-yard catch-and-run score on a seven-yard route that he turned into a touchdown. Tylan is also a willing and able blocker. Baylor, OU, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas, and A&M have also shown Tylan interest.
