Texas 7v7: Day 3 Recruiting Notebook

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Scout.com wraps up the final day of the Adidas Texas 7v7 Championships with news and notes from Saturday.

Players Planning for Texas Camp

Multiple players told Scout.com on Saturday that they plan to attend Friday's "Under The Lights" camp at Texas. Two of them already have multiple offers: Manvel 2015 cornerback William Lockett, who recently visited UCLA, and his 2016 linebacker teammate, Jordan Carmouche, the owner of early offers from Arkansas and Houston. Lockett (pictured at top) has almost 10 offers, including the Bruins, Michigan State, Missouri, and Washington, among others. One sleeper recruit, Whitehouse 2015 running back/linebacker Dominique Hollie, also said Texas coaches asked him to attend Friday's after impressing them at a June camp in Austin, so he plans to do so.

Tucker Getting Early Attention

Manvel was one of if not the most loaded team talent-wise at the entire tournament. Another name to remember is 2017 safety Derrick Tucker, a 6-foot-3, 185-pounder. Tucker said he hasn't gotten an offer yet, but is getting early interest from Kentucky and Utah. (Gabe Brooks)

Dunning Squashes Position Talk

Whitehouse 2015 four-star safety and Texas A&M commit Justin Dunning has played middle linebacker quite a bit during 7-on-7 and is expected to play outside linebacker this fall for Whitehouse, according to Wildcats head coach Adam Cook. That and Dunning's huge frame have some people thinking he could make the move to linebacker at the next level, but he confirmed that is not the case. Dunning said Texas A&M's coaches have repeatedly assured that he's "a safety all the way." (Gabe Brooks)

Don't Let Cedar Hill Fool You

One of the most talent-laden teams in Texas, defending 5A D-II state champion Cedar Hill, went 0-3 in Friday's pool play before losing its only consolation bracket contest Saturday morning. But, as Cedar Hill head coach Joey McGuire said, 7-on-7 ain't the Longhorns' game, even if they have LSU quarterback commit Justin McMillan, Texas A&M five-star receiver commit DaMarkus Lodge, Texas A&M linebacker commit Richard Moore, running back prospect Aca'cedric Ware, and a slew of other studs. Cedar Hill will definitely get back to its usual business of winning football games when they matter in the fall. (Gabe Brooks)

Three Standing Out for Townsend

Fort Bend Ridge Point 2015 four-star linebacker Cameron Townsend has more than a dozen offers, but three still stand out for him with Texas, Oklahoma and Oregon State in the mix. Tpwnsend has a visit set up for Oregon State already and is working on one with Oklahoma as well. With Texas, he said that he plans to make multiple games and hasn't yet decided which one will be for an official. (Ahmard Vital)

Carr Likes Recent Offer

The Woodlands 2015 running back Patrick Carr has been quite level-headed about the recruiting process up to this point, and that's still the case. Carr has 14 offers at the moment, with the most recent coming from Arkansas. The Arkansas offer seemed to light him up a bit and he's keeping in touch with the coaches heavily since the offer came a couple of weeks ago. (Ahmard Vital)

Diesch is One to Watch

Trophy Club Byron Nelson 2016 tight end/offensive tackle Kellen Diesch still awaits his first offer, but says the two schools showing the most interest are Oklahoma and Tennessee. Diesch has camped at both schools. (Annabel Stephan)

Gray Looking at Three Trips

Houston Lamar 2015 running back Tyreik Gray, who is actually being recruited on both sides of the ball, holds a number of offers and says that though he's still figuring out the process, he definitely wants to visit Oklahoma, Louisville, and Kansas. (Annabel Stephan)

Schools Pursuing 2016 ATH King

Another Manvel stud is 2016 receiver/athlete Deriq King, who has about half a dozen offers. King said among those schools that Baylor and Texas Tech are recruiting him the hardest, but he has also picked up recent interest from Arkansas and Texas. In fact, King said they are showing enough interest that he thinks they could be next to pull the trigger with offers. King will attend the Texas "Under The Lights" camp Friday, then a July 24 camp at Arkansas. King is concentrating on his quarterbacking skills for his duties at Manvel, but colleges like him as a slot receiver or cornerback. (Greg Powers)
