The Opening Houston Top Five Offensive Performers

HOUSTON, Texas -- Factoring in testing, performance in the drills and in the one-on-ones Scout examines the top five offensive performers at The Opening regional stop in Houston on Saturday.

(In alphabetical order)

WR Tommy Bush - Schertz (Texas) Clemens

Bush is a long and lean wide receiver with amazing top-end speed and ball skills. He is already a Scout four-star and a Top 300 member who is starting to stack up offers, but he will get them from coast-to-coast and should have his pick of school. He posted the fourth best overall Nike+ Football Rating with a 113.07. He checked in at 6-foot-5, 187 and ran a 4.47 40-yard dash and a 4.14 shuttle. He picked up an offer from Houston after the camp and also has them from schools like BaylorOklahoma State and TCU

WR Brennan Eagles - Alief Taylor (Texas)

If there was any doubt about Eagles upside then they should be quickly laid to rest. This guy is the next big thing to hit college football and is now firmly in the race to be considered as the No. 1 prospect in the Lone Star State in the 2018 cycle. He is smooth in and out of his breaks and has huge, soft hands built for catching passes. He also posted the top Nike+ rating with a 132.24. He ran a 4.51 40-yard dash and a 3.99 shuttle. Amazing considering his 6-foot-3, 214-pound frame. He has most recently picked up offers from national programs like Ohio State and Florida

OL Kenyon Green - Atascocita (Texas) High

This class of 2019 prospect walked into the camp with a bit of target on his chest as an early LSU Tigers commitment and he lived up to the hype. He played left tackle and was pitted against some of the top edge rushing guys at the camp and by and large he fended them off on most of the reps that he took. He made the 'Final Five' for the OL over some of the older prospects at the event. He has a very high ceiling from a frame and development standpoint. 

WR Al'vonte Woodard - Houston (Texas) Lamar

In a stacked class of wide receivers Woodard may be the one who has the mist well-rounded set of skills. Every camp we see him at he showcases his route-running skills and the ability to create separation from defenders. He is at times able to get open so easily that there are yards between him and the defensive backs. He also has great hands. When the ball hits them it just sticks in place and that skill is a quarterbacks best friend and they were looking for him all day. He already has offers from Texas and Texas A&M

WR Jalen Preston - Manvel (Texas)

Preston is one of the top football players in the nation for the 2018 class and he just happens to play wide receiver. He is an unique type of prospect at the position, but in a a great way. He is able to use his size and physicality to his advantage against defensive backs who want to try and jam him up at the line of scrimmage. The Top 50-rated prospect nationally still will become better and better as time goes but the skills are there that you want to see in an elite national recruit. Great leaping ability also helps to set him apart. He picked up his first offer from LSU back in the 9th grade.
