Dallas-Fort Worth Top Rated College Football Recruits

The Lone Star State once again serves up an abundance of star athletes. Named below are a half dozen 4-Star and 5-Star rated stallions — a few summary notes included — of prominent college football recruits recently graduated from a Texas High School and now eager to ply their art for a College program. 

  • Quinn Ewers, a 6’3” 206 pound QB out of Southlake Carroll, is already enrolled at the Ohio State University. Evers steered the Dragons to a Senior year 13-1 record and a Texas 6A D-1 state quarterfinal appearance.
  • Closer to Houston at a 345-mile drive from Dallas is Bellaire Episcopal High School, proving ground to another Ohio State sign-on, offensive tackle Donovan Jackson — a 6’4.5” 308-pound blocking machine. When not carving holes in opposing defenses and affording his QB ample throwing time, Jackson nailed down 2019 State honors in both the shot put (52 feet, 3.5 inches) and discus (165 feet) — both impressive distances each. 
  • Emerging out of All Saints Episcopal in Fort Worth is another offensive line standout, Tommy Brockermeyer. After missing the entire 2019 season with a shoulder injury, he returned as an anchor at left tackle while demonstrating the skill and athletic flexibility to be a welcome addition anywhere along the line. As with others, Tommy escaped his native state in signing on with the Crimson Tide at the University of Alabama.   
  • About a 40-mile drive North along I-35 lies Denton, seemingly a football machine center. Initially leading Ryan High School’s defensive end charges, a sculpted 6’3.5” 235 pounder Ja’Tavion Sanders would go on to sparkle as a tight end — emerging as a two-way player of coveted impact. His departure from High School is the Longhorns gain, as Sanders chose to stay local with The University of Texas. 
  • The same community and Prep School developed Billy Bowman, a 5’10” 175-pound two-way standout, but who rates to contribute mainly as a defensive back at the next level. He is roundly credited with a nose for the ball and an unerring tackler. That level is slated to be North in Norman, Oklahoma — Bowman is signed onto the Sooners. Raiders football will undoubtedly miss the contributions from both Sanders and Bowman.  
  • A short hop Southwest along State Route lies Cedar Hill. Its Longhorn football team compiled the Year 2020 12-1 slate — pitched largely there by QB sensation Kaidon Salter. At 6’1” and 185 pounds, he is described by some as “slight of frame” — but is universally credited as a dual-threat passer and runner with outstanding game instincts. His throws spiral out tightly from various arm angles, and he will soon be afforded the chance to try them out nearby to home, entering this year’s University of Texas Freshman class.
