Scout Previews Offensive Standouts Expected to Compete at The Opening Dallas Regional Camp

Scout previews some of the offensive talent expected to perform at Sunday's The Opening Dallas regional camp at The Star in Frisco, Texas.



Scout 100 prospect Jalen Mayden headlines the quarterback group. Mayden has offers from programs such as Ohio State, Tennessee, Baylor, Georgia, Kansas State, Louisville, Mississippi State, Nebraska, and others. Mayden is Scout's top quarterback in Texas and No. 11 nationally at the position. Fellow four-star and Scout 300 prospect Zadock Dinkelmann will also compete, along with Central Texas three-star standout Tanner Mordecai. Dinkelmann is an ex-LSU pledge. Mordecai has offers from several Power Five programs.

Two of the more-heralded quarterbacks expected at Sunday's camp are 2019 prospects: Allen's Grant Tisdale and Port Neches-Grove's Roschon Johnson. Tisdale has already garnered offers from Mississippi State, Texas Tech, and SMU, while Johnson has offers from Baylor, Florida, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Houston.

Running Backs

Two of the top three running backs in Texas will compete Sunday: Carthage's Keaontay Ingram, the state's No. 1 back, and speedster Craig Williams from Crosby High. Ingram has more than 20 P5 offers from across the nation and is a national top 200 overall prospect. Williams is also a four-star and a Scout 300 member with double-digit offers. Ingram is an all-around, traditional three-down back, while Williams is a great spread slot back.

Speaking of great spread playmakers, four-star Scout 300 prospect and Baylor pledge Josh Fleeks is listed with the running back group. Primarily a slot receiver as a junior, Fleeks can move all over the formation.

Carrollton Ranchview's SaRodorick Thompson is another 2018 prospect to watch Sunday. The 2019 class will be very well represented with El Paso Parkland's Deion Hankins, Flower Mound Marcus' Justin Dinka (2019), and Northwest Eaton's Titus Swen.

Receivers/Tight Ends

The states of Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana will have Scout 300 four-star receivers competing in Sunday's camp. Erik EzukanmaJaQuayln Crawford, and Drue Jackson will be the in-state Scout 300 representatives, while C.J. Moore -- Oklahoma's No. 1 wideout -- and Kenan Jones -- Louisiana's No. 2 receiver and the highest-ranked receiver on the pre-camp roster -- will also compete.

The 2019 Texas class will have several notable prospects, such as major recruits Jordan Whittington, Arjei Henderson, Theo WeaseKameron Brown, and Marquez Beason. Henderson and Wease both recently committed to Oklahoma.

Nathan Page, one of the top overall prospects regardless of position in the state of Arkansas for 2018, will also compete at The Opening Dallas. He should have a big spring ahead on the recruiting trail. In the tight end group, David Priebe and Christoph Henle have both picked up recent FBS offers and should see more this spring.

Offensive Linemen

A deep and talented offensive line group will feature a quartet of Scout 300 prospects, including five-star Brey Walker from Southmoore in Oklahoma and four-star Darrell Simpson from the Metroplex. Walker, an Oklahoma pledge, is a national top 15 prospect, and Simpson is a national top 50 prospect.

Frisco Wakeland's Rafiti Ghirmai is a top-three tackle in Texas and one of the most sought-after recruits during the past few weeks in the Lone Star State. Perhaps the top interior offensive line prospect expected at the camp is East Texas four-star standout Chasen Hines, who recently named a top five of LSU, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, and Texas A&M.
