Offensive prospect to watch: quarterback Manny Harris

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound athlete burst onto the high school football scene in 2013, leading the state of Texas in passing with over 3700 yards. Harris proved he could use his legs, as well, racking up 500 rushing yards. Combined, he had 38 touchdowns.

If the UTSA commit felt any jitters as a junior, he's brushed them aside and is poised for a big tournament.

Defensive prospect to watch: linebacker Jaylen Waters

Waters, who measures in at 6-foot-1, 225-pounds, also played on varsity as a junior, but says that his time training this spring has made him more of a defensive threat. "I feel like I've really developed a lot since last season and it shows on the field. I have separation from a lot of people on the field. I'm 225-pounds and I run a 4.5," he said to Scout in mid-June.

Waters' offer list includes Texas State, Minnesota, and Nevada, and he's continuing to hear from programs including Baylor and Texas Tech.
