Texas "Under The Lights": Top Underclassmen

AUSTIN, Texas -- Scout.com takes a look at some of the top underclassmen talent at Friday's "Under The Lights" camp hosted by the Texas Longhorns.

Mike Williams, 2016 DT, Fort Worth All Saints

At 6-foot-3, 270 pounds, Williams (pictured above) is a man, but still growing. He's already a Scout four-star and backed up that high praise with an impressive performance Friday evening. Scout recruiting analyst Jason Higdon was especially impressed with Williams, who he said completely dominated during 1v1's, including a head-to-head victory against 2015 Texas guard commit Patrick Vahe.

Chris Brown, 2016 S/CB, Alief (Texas) Elsik

One of the most physical defensive prospects at Friday's camp was Brown, who does not have the biggest frame, but compensates with a style that thrives on violence and physicality. Brown excelled in defensive back drills, especially press exercises that allowed him to jam, then held his own in the lengthy 1v1 session. He moves fluidly, but with the type of sudden, quick-twitch athleticism that you want to see in a defensive back. Right now, he has cornerback size, but he definitely has safety mentality. Can't wait to see this guy in pads this fall.

Collin Johnson, 2016 WR, San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian

Johnson competed Friday along with his older brother and fellow Texas commit, 2015 prospect Kirk Johnson, who looked very good during running back/linebacker 1v1's. At 6-foot-4, 195 pounds, Collin Johnson caught everything that came at him during receiver drills, according to HornsDigest.com's William Wilkerson, and played well when going man-to-man against defensive backs. He has an elite frame that is still thin enough to make you think that he could become a seriously large receiver prospect who's a matchup nightmare at the Power 5-conference level.

Christian Wallace, 2016 S, Katy (Texas) Tompkins

Wallace certainly looks the part at 6-foot-1 and at least 190 pounds. His height and length made him a problem for receivers in 1v1 matchups, where he broke up a couple of passes. He also switched to the offensive side of the ball and looked natural as a receiver. There was a lot of 2016 talent out there Friday night, but Wallace managed to catch our attention, especially during 1v1's.

Shawn Robinson, 2017 QB, Denton (Texas) Guyer

Robinson continues to emerge as one of the state's best quarterbacks, regardless of classification. He looked pretty good at the Dallas Elite 11 regional competition in early May, then had a monstrous performance during Denton Guyer's spring game that really caught a lot of people's attention. He already has FBS-level size and his arm is only getting better. Robinson looked calm, poised, and smooth Friday. His deep throws were especially impressive. He has an effortless throwing motion and quick release, which gives him the coveted "catchable ball" skill that receivers love to have in a quarterback. Oh, by the way ... the camp setting isn't the best place to see it, but the man can run the ball like nobody's business, too.
