Midlands LIVE: Scouting Texas Commits

Here is a look at some of the Texas Longhorn commits I have scouted in person this season...

WR Dorian Leonard - Longview (Texas) High
Leonard is a big, physical weapon at wide receiver. he has that size and playmaking set that just seems special to me. He can out muscle defenders and uses his size, arm reach and strong hands to pluck balls out of the air. One of the more impressive specimens I have seen this season. He is faster twitch than people probably give him credit for, but not a speed receiver. Dez Brayntesque or Mike Evanish would be a good way to describe him. He can run routes to get open, and with some space he can really make you pay.

DE Sione Teuhema - Keller (Texas) High
Sione put on some kind of show in the game I scouted him in against Mansfield (Texas) High. He had three sacks and a blocked punt. He's faster and a better football player than many have given him credit for. Keller moves him around and lets him play mostly as an outside linebacker, but he puts his hand on the ground at times. He chases plays all over the field. He is clearly one of the guys to watch when you look out on the field. He can stake over and showed that his speed will cause problems on the edge. A gritty type of player, who will get after it and sacrifice everything he can to make plays. Will be interested to see him the Army Bowl against elite levels of competition.

OG Maea Teuhema (Keller (Texas) High
I would say that he is the most massive offensive line recruit I have covered in the Midlands. There have been taller or fatter, but this kid has the right mixture of height, gorth, power and disposition. he can get moving in a hurry. Want a lead blocker, then this is your guy. He blows holes wide open. High school defensive linemen probably have nightmares about him heading in to games. He could work on his pass protection, but playing inside in college will make for a smooth transition and should further help develop his dominance.

OG/C Patrick Vahe - Euless (Texas) Trinity
Vahe plays with a very high level of consistency. He is playing center thsi season and is very good at it. He recognizes defense, helps with calls and comes off the ball in a flash after snapping. He uses his quickness to his advantage getting good placement on hsi blocks and he is big enough and strong enough to finish off, but he will need to add to that in college to take on the even bigger and stronger guys. Natural development should take care of that for him. I expect that he is even better at the end of the year and by this time next year he will be one of the most elite in the state, he is already one of the best.

OG Aaron Garza - Sherman (Texas) High
Garza is a prospect that the Longhorns took a commit from very early in the process and looking at the commit list I think he may have the most development ahead of him. He is big, and looks good in the pads. Playing offensive tackle in high school he struggles with the outside speed rush and containing the edges. In the game I saw him play he gave up some big plays and had some penalties. Will be interested to see him play and develop as a tackle, because it is something new for him. Think his best shot may be as a center or guard in college.

DT Bryce English - DeSoto (Texas) High
The shortest guy on my list, but not the smallest. English is load up front for DeSoto. He causes offenses all kinds of pain. He is short, powerful and quick and uses it to his advantage. He is not only a gap plugger, but he will bust through and make plays behind the line of scrimmage as well. He is a fiery competitor and plays hard from the start of the game until the end of the game. You have to like that about him, as he always is pressing the action. He is not a senior, but he is a team leader. He is very vocal and steps up.
