Previous Ranking: 2

5 stars6'0"220Texas
#2Steve EdmondLB
Daingerfield, TXDaingerfield

The most athletic player in East Texas, Edmond was named the Class 2A Defensive Player of the Year as a junior. He is too quick for most linemen to handle and his 34 tackles for loss are a testament to that fact.

Previous Ranking: 4

4 stars6'3"245Texas
#3Desmond JacksonDT
Houston, TXWestfield

Jackson has all the tools to be an elite DT at the next level. The only knocks on him are lack of height and the fact he has been injury prone.

Previous Ranking: 1

4 stars6'1"278Texas
#4LaDarius BrownATH
Waxahachie, TXWaxahachie

Brown, once thought to be one of the top receivers in the state, could also end up as a defensive back in college. His athleticism and versatility is unmatched. He can touch the ball and go 25 yards in the blink of an eye. He would be the top receiver or top defensive back in the state.

Previous Ranking: 8

4 stars6'2"190TCU
#5Quandre DiggsDB
Angleton, TXAngleton

What position does he play at the next level? That's actually a good problem for Diggs to have as he has played QB for Angleton since his freshman year. The younger brother of Quentin Jammer, he clearly has an athletic bloodline. He is one of the faster athletes in the state.

Previous Ranking: 21

4 stars5'10"188Texas
#6Sedrick FlowersOL
Galena Park, TXNorth Shore

If he were a tackle, he could contend for the top spot in the state. Combined with senior Rivals100 prospect Trey Hopkins, he made North Shore's line one of the best in the state this past year.

Previous Ranking: 6

4 stars6'3"280Texas
#7Trey MetoyerWR
Whitehouse, TXWhitehouse

Metoyer is a taller version of 2009 Texas A&M signee Uzoma Nwachukwu. There is nothing incredibly flashy about his game, but he just gets the job done. Despite being the sole focus of defenses, he still averaged over 100 yards a game.

Previous Ranking: 9

5 stars6'2"198Oklahoma
#8Aaron GreenRB
San Antonio, TXMadison

Had a sensational sophomore year for the Mavericks, but struggled a bit as a junior when opposing defenses focused mainly on him. He was still incredibly hard for opposing defenders to bring down.

Previous Ranking: 10

4 stars5'10"191Nebraska
#9Herschel SimsRB
Abilene, TXAbilene

Sims had a huge junior year for the state champion Abilene Eagles. He is compact in size, making him hard to bring down. Sims is also one of the best receiving backs in the Texas high school ranks in some time.

Previous Ranking: 5

4 stars5'10"190Oklahoma St.
#10Marquis AndersonDT
Cibolo, TXSteele

It is a down year for defensive tackles in the state, but Anderson has proven that he is worthy of his early offers. He bounded back after an injury-plagued sophomore year to be equally effective against both the run and pass.

Previous Ranking: 12

4 stars6'3"280Oklahoma
#11Brandon WilliamsRB
Brookshire, TXRoyal

Williams has one of the most impressive highlight reels of any running back in the state. The level of competition is the only thing keeping him from being ranked even higher.

Previous Ranking: 15

5 stars6'1"188Oklahoma
#12Sheroid EvansDB
Sugar Land, TXDulles

Though he has two years of varsity experience, it is still tough to get a read on Evans. He is a world class track star and has great size to play defensive back. Is he a football player, though? His senior year should be very telling, if he can get through it healthy, something he has yet to do.

Previous Ranking: 13

4 stars6'1"185Texas
#13Anthony WallaceLB
Dallas, TXSkyline

Wallace is the ideal middle linebacker in an age where those are becoming tougher than ever to find. He plays the run exceptionally well. He did struggle in coverage this spring and will have to prove himself there in the fall.

Previous Ranking: 3

4 stars6'2"220Oregon
#14Cedric ReedDE
Cleveland, TXCleveland

Reed was getting used to the game as a sophomore, but came on big as a junior. His size and athletic ability earned him early offers. He still has to prove he can handle the upgrade in competition from Class 3A ball.

Previous Ranking: 7

4 stars6'5"240Texas
#15Quincy RussellDT
San Antonio, TXSam Houston

Russell has seen his stock rise with the lack of defensive tackles in Texas. After playing down to his competition level as a sophomore, he made huge strides as a junior.

Previous Ranking: 59

4 stars6'3"289Texas
#16Tevin MitchelDB
Mansfield, TXLegacy

Mitchel burst onto the scene this spring after only starting in the playoffs as a junior. The tall, lanky corner has the ability to shut down receivers in man coverage.

Previous Ranking: UR

4 stars6'0"175Arkansas
#17Nathan HughesDE
Klein, TXKlein Oak

Hughes added about 30 pounds from his sophomore playing weight to have a big year at strongside end. He has the ability to add even more muscle without losing a step.

Previous Ranking: 23

4 stars6'6"263Oklahoma
#18Garrett GreenleaOL
Klein, TXKlein Collins

Greenlea was a tight end as a sophomore at Collins and that athleticism is apparent as he picks up blocks at the second level with ease.

Previous Ranking: 14

4 stars6'7"300Texas
#19J.W. WalshQB
Denton, TXGuyer

Walsh is the top quarterback prospect in the state in the class of 2011. He is a bit on the short side, but is an exceptional runner that does not make many bad decisions.

Previous Ranking: 30

4 stars6'2"190Oklahoma St.
#20Jamal TurnerQB
Arlington, TXSam Houston

Is Turner a quarterback at the next level? He is short, but he could still end up there. Even if not, he is an incredible athlete that is dangerous with the ball in his hands. He can also play cornerback.

Previous Ranking: 32

4 stars6'1"175Nebraska
#21Jace AmaroTE
San Antonio, TXMacarthur

Amaro was hurt midway through his junior season but still put up impressive numbers. He is a big, physical tight end who can block and catch.

Previous Ranking: UR

4 stars6'5"237Texas Tech
#22Lyndell JohnsonDB
Plano, TXPlano East

Johnson is another prospect fits the mold of the big safety that schools covet. He had an exceptional summer in 7-on-7 play.

Previous Ranking: 19

3 stars6'3"195Oklahoma St.
#23Leroy ScottDB
Pasadena, TXSouth Houston

Has started on varsity for Class 5A South Houston since he was a freshman. Scott went through a little bit of a slump this season and didn't always look like the elite prospect he should have. When he is on, he is in contention for the top corner in the state.

Previous Ranking: 11

3 stars5'10"190Texas
#24Trevon RandleLB
League City, TXClear Springs

Randle is all over the field for Clear Springs. He helped lead the second-year program to the Region III finals and was the anchor of one of the best defenses in Houston.

Previous Ranking: 17

3 stars6'1"205LSU
#25Max StevensonTE
Klein, TXKlein Oak

Stevenson is the perfect example of the new breed of tight ends. He can line up as a big flex receiver and provide mismatches with his height.

Previous Ranking: 94

4 stars6'6"240Oklahoma
#26Kameel JacksonWR
Arlington, TXSam Houston

Jackson was out much of his junior season with injuries. If he is able to recover fully, he could make a big move up the list. He has been dominant at every camp and combine he has attended.

Previous Ranking: 24

4 stars6'0"198Oklahoma
#27Daniel LascoRB
The Woodlands, TXThe Woodlands

Lasco isn't the prototypical running back. He is a bit long and lean and that doesn't bode well for running between the tackles. Though The Woodlands relies on him as a workhorse back, the speedster is likely a receiver in college.

Previous Ranking: 33

3 stars6'1"190California
#28Kendall ThompsonLB
Carthage, TXCarthage

Thompson could end up at a number of positions in college. He plays outside linebacker for Carthage, but is likely a MIKE or a defensive lineman at the next level. He has good lateral movement for a player his size.

Previous Ranking: 69

4 stars6'3"232Texas
#29Desmond RolandATH
Dallas, TXLake Highlands

Roland is one of the most physically impressive prospects in the state this year. He could play receiver, running back, linebacker or even safety at the next level.

Previous Ranking: 20

3 stars6'2"199Oklahoma St.
#30Chet MossLB
Cedar Park, TXCedar Park

Moss plays the run very well and shined on a defense with two senior Division I recruits this past season. He is well put together and plays with high intensity and a good football IQ.

Previous Ranking: 53

4 stars6'1"219Texas
#31Kenny WilliamsRB
Pflugerville, TXHendrickson

Williams is the prototypical big back who excels at gaining yards after contact.

Previous Ranking: 62

4 stars5'10"206Texas Tech
#32David AshQB
Belton, TXBelton

A relatively down year at the position in the state, he is the top pro-style quarterback prospect in Texas. Ash is a smart quarterback but tends to rush his throws at times.

Previous Ranking: 35

3 stars6'4"195Texas
#33Jalen BrownDB
Irving, TXIrving Macarthur School

Brown has seen his stock shoot up this offseason as colleges take notice of the big cornerback.

Previous Ranking: 74

3 stars6'0"173Notre Dame
#34Derek EdwardsWR
Brenham, TXBrenham

Edwards is one of the biggest-risers on the list. Though four-star prospect Terrell Reese received a lot of attention last year, it was Edwards who stepped up in the Cubs' long playoff run.

Previous Ranking: 120

4 stars6'1"163Texas Tech
#35Kellen JonesLB
Houston, TXSt. Pius X

Jones plays outside linebacker for St. Pius but likely translates to the inside in college. He has a quick first step and reads the ball well.

Previous Ranking: 121

3 stars6'0"209Michigan
#36Josh CochranOL
Hallsville, TXHallsville

The East Texas lineman has a solid frame and should be a big, lean tackle after a year redshirting in college.

Previous Ranking: 25

4 stars6'6"278Texas
#37Jaxon ShipleyWR
Brownwood, TXBrownwood

Like his older brother, former Texas receiver Jordan Shipley, he just seems to make routes and receptions look effortless. He is one of the most polarizing prospects out there, but could be very good on the college level.

Previous Ranking: 34

4 stars6'0"170Texas
#38Franklin ShannonLB
Dallas, TXSkyline

Another Skyline defender among the top prospects in his class. He has ideal size for a college safety already but will likely end up as a linebacker in college.

Previous Ranking: 48

3 stars6'2"210Oklahoma
#39Cameron WhiteWR
DeSoto, TXDeSoto

Transferring to DeSoto from Arlington Bowie this offseason, White has seen his stock explode. He recently decommitted from TCU.

Previous Ranking: 86

3 stars6'2"185TCU
#40Devonta BurnsDB
Arlington, TXMartin

Burns played a little bit of linebacker and a little bit of safety for Martin last season. He could play either one at the next level.

Previous Ranking: UR

3 stars5'11"185Texas A&M
#41Taylor ChappellOL
Canadian, TXCanadian

Playing at a Class 1A power, Chappell will have to learn to use more than his size advantage at the next level. He is a strong pass blocker and could excel in a spread offense.

Previous Ranking: 40

3 stars6'6"270Missouri
#42Bradley MarquezRB
Odessa, TXOdessa

Marquez is able to run between the tackles and around the edge as well as catch wheel routes out of the backfield. Is he a running back or a slot receiver in college?

Previous Ranking: 28

3 stars5'11"173Texas Tech
#43Le'Raven ClarkOL
Rockdale, TXRockdale

Clark is very lean right now but has a frame that will be able to fill out with a year as a redshirt. He still was a dominating blocker for Rockdale as junior.

Previous Ranking: UR

3 stars6'6"245Texas Tech
#44Michael BrewerQB
Austin, TXLake Travis

Brewer is another in a line of very good Lake Travis quarterbacks. The Cavaliers didn't seem to miss a beat this year after the graduation of Garrett Gilbert.

Previous Ranking: 70

3 stars6'1"175Texas Tech
#45Shayvion HattenOL
Daingerfield, TXDaingerfield

Hatten is much like Clark in that he is a lean tackle prospect with a huge upside. He could also play defensive end.

Previous Ranking: UR

3 stars6'5"265Texas A&M
#46Quincy AldridgeDB
Whitehouse, TXWhitehouse

A cornerback as a freshman and sophomore on varsity, Aldridge moved to safety this past season. With many colleges looking for bigger safeties, the 6-foot-2 defender fits the bill. If he can prove to be completely healed from an injury, his ranking will shoot up.

Previous Ranking: 18

3 stars6'2"195TCU
#47Miles OnyegbuleWR
Arlington, TXArlington

He has great size at 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds and can make tough catches, but is purely a possession guy at this point. He is a lot like Texas signee Darius Terrell from a year ago, but a little less polished.

Previous Ranking: 26

3 stars6'3"206Texas
#48Marcus HutchinsOL
DeSoto, TXDeSoto

Hutchins has been one of the anchors for DeSoto's line for quite some time. He has quick feet as evidenced by the fact that some schools recruited him as a defensive end.

Previous Ranking: 16

3 stars6'4"254Texas
#49M.J. McFarlandTE
El Paso, TXEl Dorado

McFarland is a wide receiver trapped in a tight end's body. He looked like he belonged with the receivers at the Army combine. Can he learn to block to play tight end in college?

Previous Ranking: 57

4 stars6'4"236Texas
#50Cooper WashingtonDE
Muleshoe, TXMuleshoe

Though he also plays tight end, Washington's future is on the defensive line. His sophomore film is incredibly impressive, showing a very quick burst off the line. OU has done well with small-school standouts.

Previous Ranking: 31

3 stars6'4"225Texas Tech
#51Charles JacksonDB
Klein, TXKlein Collins

Jackson is a bit raw in coverage, but he is strong as an ox and has shown he can handle bigger receivers. He saw his stock soar in the spring.

Previous Ranking: 123

4 stars5'11"180Nebraska
#52Isiah NortonDT
Dallas, TXKimball

Norton is a mammoth defensive tackle at 6-5, 300. Though he tends to play down to his competition, he could be a force at nosetackle in college.

Previous Ranking: 49

3 stars6'5"300Colorado St.
#53Joe BergeronRB
Mesquite, TXNorth Mesquite

It's hard not to be impressed by his size (6-0, 235) and speed (4.6) combination. The question is - why is he not more productive. Playing against smaller defenders, he doesn't always show the power he is capable of.

Previous Ranking: 79

3 stars6'1"215Texas
#54Joseph CheekOL
Seguin, TXSeguin

The son of former NFL offensive tackle Louis Cheek, he has the pedigree and the size to be an elite offensive tackle. Has a massive frame with plenty of room for growth as he looks skinny at 270 pounds. He needs to become a bit more polished but will play in college at a lean 320 pounds.

Previous Ranking: 36

4 stars6'7"271Texas A&M
#55Jordan WadeDT
Round Rock, TXStony Point

The soft-spoken Wade lets his actions on the field do the talking. Though not as physically imposing as other DT prospects, he uses his superior quickness to get the better of offensive linemen time and again.

Previous Ranking: 50

4 stars6'4"293Oklahoma
#56Josh StewartWR
Denton, TXGuyer

Stewart is able to blanket receivers in coverage, but his lack of size causes him to not be quite as physical as desired.

Previous Ranking: 47

3 stars6'5"270Texas
#58Donnie BaggsLB
League City, TXClear Springs

A safety as a sophomore, the 6-foot-2 205-pound Baggs played well at linebacker as junior. Along with Randle, he helped Clear Springs to have one of the top defenses in Houston.

Previous Ranking: 37

3 stars6'1"204Texas A&M
#59Mykkele ThompsonATH
San Antonio, TXJohn Paul Stevens

Thompson played both quarterback and receiver for Stevens, but could end up as a defensive back at Texas. He has plenty of speed and football smarts.

Previous Ranking: 93

#63Rob HankinsLB
Dallas, TXParish Episcopal School

Hankins is not flashy, but he just gets the job done as an inside linebacker. Like Wallace, he becomes even more valuable because of the lack of inside linebacker prospects.

Previous Ranking: 45

3 stars6'1"219Arizona
#64Spencer DrangoOL
Cedar Park, TXCedar Park

Drango has played with several Division I prospects the past two seasons and still always jumps out to even the casual observer. He didn't quite progress as much as a junior as you would like to see, but is still a good tackle prospect.

Previous Ranking: 22

3 stars6'2"191Baylor
#68Chris BarnettTE
Hurst, TXL. D. Bell

Barnett had as much hype as any prospect in Texas a year ago. However, after a couple of school transfers and problems keeping his weight in check, he is a big question mark at this point.

Previous Ranking: 41

4 stars6'6"245Michigan
#69Marquis JacksonWR
Fort Worth, TXArlington Heights

Though Darius White got most of the headlines in District 7-4A, it was Jackson that outperformed the Rivals100 prospect in both of their match-ups this season.

Previous Ranking: 29

3 stars6'0"205Kansas
#70James BaileyDB
Everman, TXEverman

Bailey does a little bit of everything for Everman, but is an ideal safety prospect. With a recent qualifying score on the SAT, he is seeing offers coming his way.

Previous Ranking: 56

3 stars6'1"200TCU
#71Jake BrendelOL
Plano, TXPlano East

Brendel could end up on either the offensive or defensive line in college. He focused mainly on playing OL as a junior, but has a higher ceiling as a defensive tackle.

Previous Ranking: 63

3 stars6'4"268UCLA
#72Nathan GutekunstOL
Humble, TXAtascocita

The Louisiana native has been in Houston for two years now and helped Atascocita make their deepest playoff run even this past season. He has the height and frame that colleges like, but doesn't show the nasty streak that you would like to see. He also tends to stay high.

Previous Ranking: 42

3 stars6'5"290Texas A&M
#73Johnny HaynesWR
Irving, TXIrving Macarthur School

The class of 2011 seems to be full of 5-foot-10 receivers that can fly and Haynes is no exception. His lack of height could be an issue, but he is a versatile prospect who can make defenses pay on deep routes, slants and even the occasional end-around.

#76P.L. LindleyLB

Lindley plays on a very good Stony Point defense. At 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, he seems to fit the mold of an ideal outside linebacker.

Previous Ranking: 72

3 stars6'2"225Oklahoma
#77Ryan SimmonsLB
Cibolo, TXSteele

Simmons is a very good player in his own right but, like others at his position, he benefits from the lack of true inside linebacker prospects these days.

Previous Ranking: 51

3 stars6'1"218Oklahoma St.
#78Ty MontgomeryWR

Though not exceptionally tall or exceptionally fast, Montgomery just produces on the field. Another in the line of sub 6-foot receivers, he has been starting at the Dallas private school since his freshman year.

Missouri City, TXFort Bend Marshall

After playing cornerback as a sophomore, will be part of a loaded Marshall backfield in 2009. Though a bit on the short side, he is thick enough to stand up to the pounding at running back and has the cover skills to play corner at the next level.

Previous Ranking: UR

3 stars5'9"183Texas Tech
#88Darrell Kelly-ThomasDE
Lufkin, TXLufkin

3 stars6'4"220TCU
#93J.J. GainesATH

Previous Ranking: 46

Sargent was one of the best defenders on the field when Bowie played Skyline this past year, and that is saying something as both teams had more than their fare share of DI seniors. He does not have the ideal frame for a safety, though, and is not a cornerback at the next level.
