TEXAS ALL STATE WATCH LIST
· Zac Rogers – Hebron High School, 2015 – As a freshman starter on Varsity, Zack is a technician of sorts on the O-line. He is big and agile enough to pull on counters and he finishes blocks. Nick named by the media “Pup” due to the fact that he started varsity football so young. He plays the position the way it should be played. His pass blocking is superb and as I mentioned earlier his run blocking skills are very solid. He plays very well in space and seems to know how to get leverage on defenders. Being such a big physical offensive tackle, Zack reminds me of a young Jason Smith.
· Anthony Canady – Mesquite High School, 2013 – “Ant” is a very solid corner with marginal speed. I have watched his personal workouts for over a year now and have come away thinking that he is a complete student of the game. On film, Anthony plays an aggressive style of football with his instincts of a college level corner in a high school uniform. Anthony has won many awards throughout different football camps dating back to 2011 where he took home his first CB MVP award in Houston Texas at the 5 STAR Performance Camp. Ant is as fundamentally sound of a DB as there is in the DFW area. He has great footwork with a nice burst of speed breaking on passes. He reminds me of former NY Jet Aaron Glenn.
· Breyun Owens– South Grand Prairie High School, 2013 – Breyun Owens is ranked as the number 10 OG in the state of Texas by the top TheOldCoach.com, and is listed as a 5 Star prospect on Texasprepstars.com. Owens is a pulling guard in his teams system, with the ability to rollover linebackers at the second level. Owens can play a little high at times when he pulls, but he is a great finisher at the point of attack. Something he will have to fix at the next level. Great SEC prospect do to ability to roll over defenders. Owens actually would have been a 30 plus offer athlete if he would have played D-line or even center. Don't be surprised if you see Owens moved around at the next level. Owens is also a state ranked heavy weight wrestler. Which explains his quick hands and great balance on the field. He reminds me of a young Nate Newton.
· Collin Spencer – Woodrow Wilson High School, 2013 – Speed, speed, speed……….. This talented DB has great speed and great instincts that allow him to break on the ball. Collin is a tough and gritty DB that uses power and technique to separate a ball from the ball carrier. With personal trainer and footwork specialist Clay Mack the sky is the limit for this young man. He is not training just for high school domination, he is preparing for the next level. With footwork and skill development it makes him versatile enough to play anywhere in the secondary or on special teams. He reminds me of Tom Zibkowski.
· Jake Oliver – Jesuit High School, 2012 – Jake is as talented a player that there is in the area, and UT is getting a gem of player. Watching Jake play made me appreciate what a physical receiver looks and plays like. He is a good route runner with sneaky speed. He actually jumps ball defenders as if they were not there. Watching Jake stalk block Cornerbacks is a sight for sore eyes. He finishes blocks like an O-lineman with attitude. Jake should have a great 2012 season as the man at Jesuit. He reminds me of Ed McCaffrey. Don’t be surprised if the coaches at UT add some weight and convert him to a TB.
