LSR's June Hot 100 List

Lone Star Recruiting's June Hot 100 List


1. OL - Ofa Mohetau - Euless Trinity

Comment: Still rated as the top player in the state. Of the top three players in the state, he is the most dominant of the bunch on the field.

2. TE - Tony Hills Jr. - Alief Elsik

Comment: Every coach that has seen Hills up close is just in love with his talent and raw ability. His upside is as high as anyone, anywhere.

3. OL -Jorrie Adams - Jasper

Comment: There are some people that actually rate Adams a little higher than Mohetau. I'm still leaning to Mohetau, but that might change later in the year.

4. DE - Jarvis Moss - Denton Ryan

Comment: Franchise defensive ends don't grow on trees and Moss leads this year's stellar class in-state.

5. DE - Justin Warren - Tyler Lee

Comment: Warren closes to the ball as well as anyone I've seen in the nation this year. He might be a more complete player than Moss at this stage of their developments.

Comment: This kid has only started to scratch the surface of his potential. He has NFL potential on the defensive side of the ball.

7. DE - Tim Crowder - John Tyler

Comment: This year's class of defensive ends is simply amazing.

8. DB - Tony Cade - Lewisville

Comment: His physical tools and aggression on the field make him a real difference maker at safety. The only question mark are his coverage skills.

Comment: Kennedy is the only defensive tackle prospect in the state that I've seen that rates with the best from last year's great class in-state.

10. DB - Tarell Brown - North Mesquite

Comment: Perhaps no player in the state watched his stock soar more in the month of May.

16. WR - Tyrell Gatewood - Tyler Chapel Hill

17. DE - Tim Washington - SL Dulles

Comment: Does the wealth of defensive line talent ever end? Yet another prospect at this position that has Top 10 ability.

18. WR - Limas Sweed - Brenham

Comment: With his size and ability, Sweed's a future playmaker at the college level.

Comment: The star safety prospect makes a Top 25 debut (an admitted glaring omission) in the state rankings.

24. Ath - Robert Johnson - Waco

70. DB - Dominique Brooks - North Mesquite

Comment: A versatile player that hits hard and runs well.

71. TE - Tremayne Standberry - Lewisville
