Let the Big Dog Eat

Olasunkanmi Adeniyi is a 2014 LB/DE out of Fort Bend Bush High School(South Houston). Adeniyi displays a big build for a junior at 6'2 225. The great thing about Adeniyi right now is he could develop at 3 different positions as he matures. He has the speed of a LB at 4.7 and could play there, but Bush often plays him at DE where he is a real power house disrupting the offensive line.

Running Back with a Fluid Stride

Some players do not get seen because of the location they live in and for various other reasons, but there is talent in all parts of Texas. Cleveland, TX is located about an hour northeast of Downtown Houston... and has one of the most athletic players in the whole state. Brandon Foster is a 5'11 170 lb. 2014 running back that has recently transferred to Furr HS from Cleveland HS. Foster has raw talent. One of the most impressive tools he owns is leg fluidity.

North Shore's 2015 CB

Darius Mouton, a 5'9" 160 lb. corner back from North Shore HS had an impressive showing at the Speed Rank Houston Open. The 16 year old had a 4.63 40, 9'5" broad jump, 34" vertical, and a 4.2 shuttle. If every one of these talents progresses in the next 2 years. Mouton will most definitely be a top athlete in Texas. He has an enthusiasm that creates a good working environment for other players and leads with his actions. Mouton finds a way to hit someone on every play.

Making a Big Impression

It is a good time for Jacolbie Butler to announce himself as one of the top athletes in the class of 2015.

He was a key contributer at Pearland HS this year and has obvious skill. When Butler realizes he can run past everyone on the field.

Texas' Next Big WR Prospect?

Cy-Ridge has a history of having big time prospects. A few years ago Russell Shepard brought a lot of attention to the northwest Houston school as a national top 5 prospect. 2015, WR, Kemah Siverand may have that same potential. The 6'2, 176 lb. receiver has already received attention from UT and A&M. This attention comes off of only 244 yards receiving on 17 receptions. Siverand only needs a few plays to show his ability. Cy-Ridge was a run first team last year with Oklahoma St.

Big Play Potential

Dallas Kimball's 2015, wide receiver, Kedarian Jones fits the mold of a young athlete who is ready to develop into a big impact high school/college wide receiver and maybe more. Traveling all over the state of Texas, Speed Rank sees athlete's all the time and we understand when one of these athletes has potential. To catch it at a young age, you can really develop a special opportunity. Jones' size and jumping ability combo at age 16 is highly above average.

8th Grade Phenom

Hezekiah Jones recently ran a 4.60 40 yard dash with Speed Rank. Why is that so impressive? Because, Hezekiah Jones was born on July 8, 1999 making him only 13 years old. Jones is 5'11, 155 lbs. and will most likely attend George Ranch high school where his Dad is an assistant coach. Last Month Nick Saban(Alabama) offered 8th grader Dylan Moses from Baton Rouge, Lousiana a football scholarship... Could Hezekiah Jones be next?

Chason Virgil's Ability

Can not say enough about the maturity West Mesquite's Chason Virgil displayed as a sophomore quarterback. Virgil plays the position with a certain Rajon Rondo like style. Virgil seems to be able to pass from all kinds of body positions: back foot, front foot, spin move then pass, pass on the run, pass while juking... The best way to explain it, is he simply looks like a point guard out there. Virgil displays great quickness in the pocket (4.21 shuttle).

07 Mar

Multi-Talented Warren

Dallas Kimball's 2014, DB, Gerald Warren impressed with a 4.66 40 yard dash, 4.36 shuttle and 30.5" vertical. At 5'10, 180 Warren was a 1st Team All-District Safety and a 2nd Team All-District Punter in 2012. Warren's quickness was evident and his pure speed will develop into that 4.5-4.4 range soon. Warren has D1 defensive back potential.

Dallas Carter Corey Avery

Dallas Carter running back and safety Corey Avery has recently received an offer from West Virginia and we have been hearing about interest from SEC schools. Avery has a 5'11 185 body and can run. He has 4.56 break-away speed. Avery is a straight forward runner and does not make unnecessary moves. His mindset is getting short yardage first with a knack for getting big gains. Avery will put on size and could be 205 when he graduates with 4.5 speed.
