Top 10 Midlands CBs
http://media.scout.com/media/image/130/1308977.jpg 1 Kendall Sheffield Marshall  Texas 6'0/181 Undecided
Junior Eval:  Sheffield is a blistering fast prospect, posting an elite laser-time of 4.36 in the 40-yard dash. He is the type of corner who has the size and the skill set to develop in to a guy you can put out on the island and play one-on-one against the other team's most dangerous weapon at receiver.

Kris Boyd

Gilmer  Texas 6'0/181 Undecided
Junior Eval:  He has turn and run ability and his size at the position gives him an advantage in one-on-one coverage against big, elite level wide receivers. All of those skills will make him a very high level rated prospect.

P.J. Mbanasor

Hendrickson  Texas 6'1/183 Oklahoma
Junior Eval:  Can sink his hips and turn. He has the size and strength to man up big-framed feature receivers. Plays with savvy and confidence, showing good hand-eye coordination. He just has a knack for getting a hand in to break up pass plays.

Junior Eval:  Hill is a versatile defensive back, who could actually end up playing safety or corner on the next level. He has terrific size and a frame that looks like he will be much bigger by the time he leaves high school. He is not afraid to come up and lay the wood and flies to the football.

Josh Butler

West Mesquite  Texas 5'11/170 Michigan State
Junior Eval:  He is a prospect who has been elite in camp showings pulling down accolades and awards, showing great coverage abilities, instincts, and the savvy that it takes to play on the island on the next level. A well-rounded skill set as a prospect.

Jaylon Lane

Nacogdoches  Texas 6'1/172 Oklahoma State
Junior Eval:  Lane is a calm and effective playmaker on the field. He is a defensive back prospect who possesses premium size and length. He could grow in to a safety with time, but is smooth enough and quick enough to be projected as a CB.

Darrell Miller

Cedar Hill  Texas 5'11/170 Tennessee
Junior Eval:  Formed one of the top cornerback duos in the state with Ou signee Marcus Green in 2013, but will be the main man in 2014. He has the skills to fit the bill. Nice size and good ball skills combined with the fact he is a fiery and gritty and most importantly a consistent performer.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/130/1308219.jpg 8 John Humphrey Clear Falls  Texas 6'0/165 Undecided
Junior Eval:  He has the skills to hang with wide receivers and possibly develop in to a corner who you can put on an island. One offense, he is a multi-functional and can beat you win a number of ways and can score often. Hard to contain.

James Locke

Central Senior  Texas 5'10/189 Oregon
Junior Eval:  Has a fun highlight film to watch. He is a very aggressive and quick defensive back prospect. He can change gears quickly, showing outstanding burst and the unique ability to change direction transitioning out of his back pedal.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/127/1275334.jpg 10 Jordan Tolbert Ridge Point  Texas 5'11/160 Baylor
Junior Eval:  A cornerback who can be trusted on the opponent’s best receiver in a one-on-one capacity. He has great body control and a keen awareness of where the ball is when in the air. On top of that, he can play the press man as well.
Best of the Rest: Jeff Gladney, William Lockett, Jalen Campbell, Reggie Robinson, Darreyl Patterson, William, Henderson, Takadrae Williams, Darrion Flowers, Isaac Warren, X'zavien Ausborne
