Baylor extends offers to 2015 and 2016 prospects

Baylor offered two HS prospects in consecutive days as Clay Johnston and Justin Madubuike receive offers. Clay is a 2015 LB/RB out of Abilene Wylie. Clay has started to heat up in the recruiting world, after his amazing showing at the Dallas Nike Recruiting Combine, reporting a 126.84 rating.

Madubuike is a 2016 recruit out of McKinney North HS. Justin is a 6'3, 245 lb DE that currently holds an offer from Tulsa and Ole' Miss, in addition to Baylor. Madubuike is a rising sophomore that will begin to gain more and more attention. BearsIllustrated will reach out to Justin to discuss his offer and his summer plans. (Kevin Barrera)

Jamabo impresses at Dallas Nike Recruiting Combine

Sotonye "Soso" Jamabo definitely looked the part Saturday. He said he was coming off a tweaked Achilles, but recorded a SPARQ score in the triple digits (109.2), which was better than he expected considering the injury, to grab decision-makers' attention and earn an invitation to The Opening. (Gabe Brooks)

Johnston a top performer at Nike Combine in Dallas

2015 LB, Clay Johnston out of Abilene (Texas) Wylie, the son of San Diego Chargers strength and conditioning coach Kent Johnston, looked the part of an FBS-caliber linebacker despite what might seem as smaller measurements at 6-foot-1, 198 pounds. Johnston, who has an SMU offer, looked bigger than his measurements and performed huge, recording a 124.86 SPARQ score, which included a great 39.2-inch vertical and blistering 4.07-second shuttle. (Gabe Brooks)

Lockhart continues to bring in offers

2015 DE James Lockhart, a four-star prospect and one of the state's top 20 players in Scout.com's Texas Hot 100 out of Ennis (TX) HS, picked up three new offers from well-known programs: Penn State (Thursday), Miami (Friday), and Florida State (Saturday). (Gabe Brooks)

Daniels now at 20 offers

2015 DT Darrion Daniels, of Dallas (TX) Bishop Dunne is now at 20 offers. The big four-star interior defender now has at least 20 offers thanks to his pair from this past week, which were Miami on Tuesday and Wisconsin on Wednesday. Miami offered seven targets in DFW, while Wisconsin offered six players this past week to push the Badgers' statewide offer total to 12 from April 11-24. (Gabe Brooks)

Scout Focus: Kameron Martin

Greg Powers broke down offers and provides analysis of Port Arthur (TX) Memorial HS RB Kameron Martin. Martin, who holds 20+ offers, named an early leader in his recruitment, the Florida State Seminoles. '16 Midlands Focus: Kameron Martin

Wallace a top QB prospect for 2016

Tristen Wallace, 2016 QB, DeSoto (Texas) -- Wallace may be in the sophomore year of his high school career, but he looks like he's in college. The 6-foot-2 1/2, 220-pounder looks like a linebacker or H-back, but has a strong, live arm. He is raw and will need to work on his mechanics and release point, but he has the tools to be a star. His athleticism makes him a dangerous dual-threat quarterback. Wallace threw some missiles during Sunday's event. (Gabe Brooks)

Williams proving himself

Devin Williams, 2016 QB, Mansfield (Texas) Timberview -- Williams has a little Kyler Murray to him. It's still way too early to put him on that level, but his small size (5-9 1/2, 170) and quick feet remind you of the 2015 four-star and Elite 11/The Opening invitee. Williams throws with adequate velocity and very good touch. What he'll need to work on is raising his release point, which is too low right now and has a slight hitch. Nevertheless, he gets the ball out quick and his receivers probably love him because of his touch. (Gabe Brooks)
