CenTex Standings

Many college staffs are on vacation and recruiting is a little bit slow. We're taking advantage of that and bringing you a recap of where things stand recruiting-wise in Central Texas...

No, Central Texas may not produce the same number of recruits as Dallas and Houston areas, but it has still been a busy few months in Austin, San Antonio, Waco, Temple, etc.

Taking advantage of the slow tempo of late June/early July, here's a recap of CenTex recruiting.

STILL ON THE BOARD: The first prospect to come to mind is Waco Midway 4-star defensive back Kahlil Haughton. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound athlete announced a top ten in late May (Arkansas, Baylor, Duke, Louisville, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, and Texas Tech) and has recently taken visits to Arkansas and Tech. A decision could come prior to the season.

Haughton missed the latter part of spring football due to a wrist injury, but had surgery and is recovering nicely.

Burton's Louis Brown, a one-time Baylor commit, is a 3-star defensive end prospect who recently opened his recruitment back up. The 6-foot-6, 207-pounder has offers from Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Texas, Texas Tech, Utah State, and Washington.

Other uncommitted players with offers to keep an eye on: Leander Cedar Park three-star defensive lineman Myles Cheatum, San Antonio Alamo Heights quarterback Dalton Banks, San Antonio Brennan quarterback Da'Shawn Key, Pflugerville Hendrickson wide receiver Reggie Daniels and defensive end Niyi Akeredolu, Killeen Shoemaker defensive end Kerry Walker and linebacker Diamon Cannon, Cibolo Steele's Jaylen Harris, Georgetown East View offensive lineman Zach Pare, Converse Judson offensive lineman Abdul Beecham, and Stafford defensive tackle Josh Uluocha.

BIG COMMITMENTS OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS: Pflugerville Hendrickson cornerback P.J. Mbanasor, a 4-star prospect, was once a TCU commit, but after opening things back up and receiving a flurry of offers, the athlete ultimately decided on Oklahoma.

Boerne 3-star quarterback Quinten Dormady was a rising name this spring after missing his entire junior season; Dormady's offer list included Alabama, Vanderbilt, TCU, and Kentucky, but the 6-foot-4, 210-pounder chose Tennessee in early June.

Others: Austin Westlake 3-star linebacker Breckyn Hager recently announced for Baylor; Converse Judson 3-star safety Keivon Ramsey is headed to Texas; San Antonio Breandeis receiver Peyton Hall and Copperas Cove quarterback Manny Harris are committed to UTSA; Cove defensive lineman Tyrell Thompson is going to Houston; Waco Midway teammates quarterback Ben Hicks (who was named as an Elite 11 finalist) and linebacker Lenoy Jones Jr. have both pledged to Houston, as well; Pflugerville Hendrickson offensive lineman Blake Browning is headed to Tulsa; Cibolo Steele quarterback L.G. Williams is going to Texas State, as is Round Rock Stony Point receiver Justin Gamble; Leander Rouse athlete Billy McCrary is headed to SMU.

UNDERCLASSMAN WATCH: One of the nation's top 2016 prospects is from CenTex, in Killeen Shoemaker defensive lineman Kendell Jones. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound prospect is the number three overall prospect for 2016 and is the country's top defensive tackle. Jones' offer list includes Texas, Arkansas, Baylor, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Michigan.

Other uncommitted rising athletes include Marble Falls four-star quarterback Brennen Wooten, who holds offers from Boise State, Clemson, TCU, Kentucky, Houston, Tulsa, and Akron, Waco four-star cornerback Eric Cuffee, who has Baylor and Oklahoma offers, Cibolo Steele teammates four-star defensive lineman Mark Jackson, who holds Oklahoma, Baylor, and Texas Tech offers and three-star running back Bryson Denley, who has an offer from Baylor, and Pflugerville three-star safety Louis Kelley.

Pflugerville Hendrickson four-star cornerback KeShawn Somerville is already committed to Baylor.
