Gipson said he has also received recent interest from TCU, which he visited about a week ago. Gipson, who plays outside linebacker for Cedar Hill, said the Tulsa offer and interest he's received from other schools is for an even-front defensive end position.

Cedar Hill 2015 receiver/running back Denvre Daniels, who had 142 all-purpose yards and one touchdown, has offers from Colorado State and New Mexico State. Daniels, who returned a kickoff 93 yards for a score, said he hopes to visit Colorado State in the near future. He also would like to take a trip to Texas Tech and hopes to pull in an offer from the Red Raiders this fall.


Top Offense


Aca'cedric Ware, 2015 RB, Cedar Hill: the USC commit ran 24 times for 193 yards and four touchdowns to power Cedar Hill's 323-yard rushing performance.

J.F. Thomas, 2015 WR, South Oak Cliff: the TCU commit caught four passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns, beating Tennessee cornerback commit Darrell Miller multiple times and drawing two end-zone pass interference calls on the same possession.

Jordan Stevenson, 2015 RB, South Oak Cliff: the Texas commit took a lot of punishment but endured for 103 rushing yards, plus a 13-yard, highlight-reel touchdown catch that ended in him hurdling a defender inside the 5.

DaMarkus Lodge, 2015 WR, Cedar Hill: Lodge caught only two balls, but both were touchdowns and he made them look easy, something he's accustomed to doing. One of his scores was an impressively effortless 15-yard jump-ball grab over Wisconsin-committed cornerback Takadrae Williams.

David Johnson, 2016 QB, South Oak Cliff: Johnson completed 12 of 27 passes for 210 yards and four touchdowns while adding a 75-yard touchdown run.


Top Defense


Jalen Goss, 2015 DT, South Oak Cliff: Goss multiple tackles for loss and was SOC's lone interior disruptor against Cedar Hill's vaunted rushing attack.

Marvin Terry, 2016 OLB/DE, South Oak Cliff: playing middle linebacker this year, Terry had a slow start in the first two quarters, but played much better in the second half.

Richard Moore, 2015 OLB, Cedar Hill: Goss and Terry stood out more individually despite the loss, but Moore got Defensive MVP honors. Moore had a couple of noticeable big hits and was around the ball a ton, which is expected of a Texas A&M-bound linebacker.


Sleeper Watch


In addition to Gipson and Daniels, Cedar Hill 2015 offensive tackle Jarrid Williams stood out as a nice sleeper prospect. Cedar Hill head coach Joey McGuire said Williams is a legit 6-foot-6 and about 280 pounds with a size 20 shoe. He's very long-armed and definitely looks like he could add positive weight to his large frame. Williams appears to be a late bloomer with a high ceiling. He reported interest from Kansas State.
