21. S Deionte Thompson - (Class of 2015)

School: West Orange-Stark HS
HT: 6'2 | WT: 175
Recruiting: Committed to Alabama

Scout Breakdown: A long and rangy defensive back prospect, who is good in coverage and is not afraid to come up and make a hit. He is tall, long, and has pretty good speed for his size. Covers ground quickly and plays the ball very well in the air. He has knack for making plays on the ball and knocking it away or getting the interception.

School: Bishop Dunne HS
HT: 6'1 | WT: 180
Recruiting: Washington, UCLA, Tulsa, Texas A&M, Texas, Tennessee, TCU, Stanford, SMU, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Ohio State

Scout Breakdown: Watkins played both ways in 2012 at receiver and corner, but is being recruited as a defensive back. He has the look of a free safety with a long, lean frame, but should be considered as more of a coverage corner. He has elite top-end track speed. He is able to drop quickly and covers a lot of ground.

School: Manvel HS

School: Clear Lake HS
HT: 6'4 | WT: 250

School: Katy HS
HT: 6'1 | WT: 205

26. CB Arrion Springs - (Class of 2014)

School: Roosevelt HS

School: Stephenville HS

School: Skyline HS
HT: 6'2 | WT: 225
Recruiting: Texas A&M, Texas, SMU, Mississippi, Michigan State, Michigan, Baylor

Scout Breakdown: One of the more physically imposing players in the class at this early juncture. He looks like a kid's wrestling figurine. He lines up at defensive end and linebacker on his sophomore film and makes a good amount of plays. he runs well for a bigger framed linebacker and should be a perfect fit as a MLB.

Recruiting: Committed to Texas A&M

School: Lamar HS
HT: 6'0.5 | WT: 175
Recruiting: Washington State, Utah, UCLA, Tulsa, Texas Tech, Texas, TCU, Stanford, SMU, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Northwestern

Scout Breakdown: Rated as a safety, Bonney also has the skills to play corner once he gets to college. A versatile defensive back with a great frame and long arms. Will need to get stronger in the weight room, but has plenty of time for that. His biggest strength is his concentration and coverage abilities.
