Midlands: Highest Stocks

FOX Sports NEXT takes a look at a few players in the Midlands who have seen massive activity take place in their recruitment. This will be an on-going series. Today we take a quick look at three players who have hauled in lots of offers as of late.

DE Jarrett Johnson (6-3, 225) – Katy (TX) Seven Lakes
Missouri got it started, then Northwestern. After that, a junior day visit to Texas landed Johnson an offer. From there, it exploded by the next week with Oklahoma, Baylor and Texas A&M jumping on board. It's not over. Johnson will likely end up with over 20 offers or more by the summer.

LB Otaro Alaka (6-3, 210) – Houston (TX) Cy Falls
He came into 2013 with seven offers already in hand. Now, Alaka has become the hot player in the recruiting game. Just this month alone, he has hauled in a major offer haul with Michigan, California, Texas, LSU and Colorado. The latter three were all on February 25. 

Peyton Newell (6-3, 280) – Hiawatha (KS) HS
Keeping up with the offer count on Newell has turned into a part-time job. It seems like every day a new program steps up. The count is now up to 28 offers, with Wisconsin being the latest. Nearly every conference in America is represented. How many more will step up? Let's put the over-under number at 40. Word of advice, take the over.
