Scout.com National Analyst Greg Powers takes a look at the 16 players in the Class of 2017 who have been elevated to four-star status...

  Stars Pos.  Name School State HT/WT
http://media.scout.com/media/image/134/1343937.jpg   C Jack Anderson Frisco HS Texas 6'4/275
Breakdown: Anderson is powerful at the point of attack and continues to get better with each rep and day of development. Has experience center snapping, but could also play guard in college. Holds two P5 offers already (Texas Tech, Arizona State). 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371552.jpg   MLB Baron Browning Kennedale HS Texas 6'2/201
Breakdown: Browning was the only freshman on his high school varsity team in 2013 and established himself as a legit D1 target with his play. Has the size and the intangibles to be an upper tier recruit.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/130/1309867.jpg   CB Djimon Colbert Winnetonka HS Missouri 6'1/180
Breakdown: Colbert earned Scout Freshman of the Year honors after a strong freshman season, locking down one half of the field as a lock down island corner. Has prototype size at a young age and a developed skill set at the position.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371575.jpg   CB Junior Dorbah Emmett Conrad HS Texas 6'1/175
Breakdown: Another defensive back who possesses great size at the corner position. Dorbah was very physical as a freshman and is not afraid to come up and put his hat in the mix at the line of scrimmage. Already on the radar of major programs. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371555.jpg   WR Octavius Evans Center HS Texas 6'2/176
Breakdown: No player may have put up the type of numbers like Evans who had 734 yards and scored eight times for Center during his freshman season. He will be a major target and offers will come quickly. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371544.jpg   OLB Anthony Hines Plano East Sr HS Texas 6'2.5/218
Breakdown: With at or around 50 offers he may be the top offered player in the country at this point in time in his class. He will be making the move and playing against Texas 6A competition after playing against private schools as a freshman. He is currently committed to Mississippi State.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/134/1346778.jpg   CB Jaylon Jackson Cedar Hill HS Texas 5'10/160
Breakdown: Jackson has yet to really get his shine on the field in varsity action, but showed what he could do filling in for the injured Darrell Miller at cornerback at the State 7v7 in College Station. Has great hips and feel at the CB position. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/132/1327511.jpg   CB Quindon Lewis Southmoore HS Oklahoma 6'0/160
Breakdown: When checking with OK Preps specialist Bob Przybylo he did not hesitate to say that Lewis was the real deal, "this dude is gonna be legit as they get." Lewis has size, speed and plays with a high energy level. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/133/1331021.jpg   WR KaDarrian Nixon De Soto HS Texas 5'8/170
Breakdown: Nixon got some game action for DeSoto as a freshman, which should tell you all you need to know about him as it is one of the top teams talent wise in the nation. He is extremely explosive with the speed to be a difference maker. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371543.jpg   OLB Jeffrey Okudah So Grand Prairie HS Texas 6'1/192
Breakdown: Another prospect who got extensive action as a freshman for a powerhouse team. The question for Okudah is what position will fit him best in college. Will he be a great defensive player or will he be a receiver? That question will not slow colleges as they will be lining up. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371546.jpg   QB Shawn Robinson Guyer HS Texas 6'2/191
Breakdown: Has established himself as one of the premiere signal callers in the country for his class. He has a strong arm and a very quick release. He was a standout at the Elite 11 stop in Dallas and will have three years under center before he departs HS. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371558.jpg   QB Chris Robison Horn HS Texas 6'1/172
Breakdown: Robison is a prospect who is on the rise and will be growing up before our eyes in Texas 6A. He is a calm and effective leader already and established himself as one of the best at the Texas State 7v7 regardless of class. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371559.jpg   QB Jason Shelley Lone Star HS Texas 5'11/160
Breakdown: Shelley has already secured his first two scholarship offers from Clemson and Nebraska. Put his stranglehold in the starting quarterback position for his high school last season and will be one of the most watched guys in North Texas.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/134/1347184.jpg   S Derrick Tucker Manvel HS Texas 6'3/185
Breakdown: Another prospect who emerge at the Texas State 7v7. Tucker plays on a loaded team heavy with D1 talent and looks the part standing next to any one of them. He has good size to go with tremendous range. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/137/1371573.jpg   RB Kaegun Williams Stephenville HS Texas 5'9/180
Breakdown: Last year he was the District Newcomer of the Year and racked up over 2,000 all purpose yards for the Yellowjackets. Playing for a perennial Texas prep power it will only be a matter of time before college programs are all over him. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/134/1349048.jpg   DT Marvin Wilson Episcopal HS Texas 6'5/289
Breakdown: It takes time for many defensive linemen to mature and grow, but Wilson is already well ahead of that curve as one of the most powerful in Houston regardless of class. He was a standout at both Texas and TCU camps this summer.
