Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 2/9/09
Committed Over: Florida, LSU, Miami (Fl), Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas A&M
Scouting Report: Benson is the type of kid coaches like to use as the example for what it means to not loaf. On film, Benson seems to always show up in the frame whether the play is to him or away from him. Benson is non-stop and plays at one speed all game long. When a player plays with such intensity, he creates luck; fumble recoveries, strips, etc... Benson creates luck.

Committed Over: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Tennessee, USC
Scouting Report: Cobbs is a relentless worker off the field and from a physical standpoint that has helped turn him in to one of the most college ready players coming out of high school. His biggest asset is his versatility. He could end up on either side of the ball in college, but because of his ability to make things happen with the ball in his hands; his first looks will be on offense. - Greg Powers, Scout.com

Taylor (TX)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 38
Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 2/8/09
Committed Over: Baylor, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M
Scouting Report: Cotton is a black hole and if you run into his gap, you are not running out. He dominates the line of scrimmage with power, body control, solid change of direction, and the amazing ability to shed blocks with ease. He is dominant in a three man front and even scarier in four man front. He makes it hard for an offense to establish the run.

Scouting Report: Great push off the line with strong arm and powerful lower body push. Great against the run and has a knack for the football. Good first step off the ball. May end up putting on more weight and moving inside the tackle or working on change of direction developing into a pass-rushing end. - Ahmard Vital, Scout.com

Skyline (TX)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 3
Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 12/13/09
Committed Over: California, LSU, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas Tech
Scouting Report: Davis is not the flashiest receiver ever on the field, but he makes the flashiest plays. He is just a natural talent. He can make the hard catches going up for the ball or dragging his feet out of bounds, but he will also break off some very nice underneath routes and use his speed to turn them in to big plays. - Greg Powers, Scout.com

Rating:
Pos Rank: 2
Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 1/29/10
Committed Over: Arizona State, Florida, Georgia, Houston, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, USC
Scouting Report: Long defensive end with a big wing span who comes off the ball very well with great hands and good pad level. Excellent at being able to shed his blocker to make a tackle, but does more gap control and stretching of plays than anything in his defensive system. One of the nation's best at being able to wrap up in open space and moving laterally with the ball. Picks the right time to get upfield and make a tackle without giving up his gap.

Once he is out in the open he is tough to get and bring down. Has a nice soft touch on passes and can hit any pass you want. Has lapses in judgement on passes at times when he tries to thread the needle.

Rating:
Pos Rank: 68
Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 2/8/09
Committed Over: Kansas, LSU, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas Tech
Scouting Report: Darius Terrell of DeSoto High School is big bodied wide receiver that may bump down and become a pass catching TE. As expected, he is a go up and get it type of player. He is not overly fast but he is tough to press because of his size. He excels when running intermediate routes because he is not afraid of contact and he is a big target that gives the QB a big window to throw in. He is also a natural pass catcher. - Baron Flenory Jr.
Adrian White
CB | 5-11 / 175
De Soto (TX)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 4
Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 3/13/09
Committed Over: California, Florida, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Watch DeSoto for a game or two and you will start to notice a trend. Teams just do not throw the ball on White’s side of the field. His break on the ball is amazing and he has tremendous hips. He also proved that he can shut down top receivers at the UnderArmour All-American Bowl. - Greg Powers, Scout.com
Darius White
WR | 6-4 / 195
Dunbar (TX)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 6
Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 1/2/10
Committed Over: Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech
Scouting Report: White is explosive off the line and gets down field in a hurry. He is a threat to score from anywhere on the field. His deep threat speed is complimented by explosive leaping ability. At 6'4/195 pounds, he is a lot to handle. He possesses great upper and lower body strength and against smaller corners, he has the ability to impose his will. White has strong hands and catches with fluidity in stride without the loss of motion. -- Baron Flenory
Reggie Wilson
DE | 6-3 / 238
Haltom (TX)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 3
Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 3/20/09
Committed Over: Colorado, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas A&M
Scouting Report: Wilson gets off the ball quick with a quick first step and always seems to make first contact. He does a good job fighting through double teams and disrupting plays in the backfield. Wilson pursues the ball well and displays great speed for a Defensive End. He could easily carry 15-20 more pounds it appears and play in the 255 to 260 range. Wilson is strong and athletic. He can at times get too aggressive and over pursue.
QB | 6-4 / 203
Second Baptist (TX)
Rating:
Scout300: 156
Pos Rank: 9
Committed to: TEXAS
Commit Date: 2/18/09
Committed Over: Iowa, LSU, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Stanford
Scouting Report: Can make all the throws necessary to be a solid QB on the next level. The slant, the out, the post and the deep ball. His strength is his ability to throw while scrambling. Considered to be a pro style QB, but is a good runner as well. - Ahmard Vital, Scout.com
