State 7on7 Primer

Several TCU commits and targets will be in College Station later this week to participate in the Texas 7on7 State Championship.

Approximately 128 schools will be represented by their 7on7 squads later this week as the Texas State 7on7 Championships take place in College Station.

Several commits and targets for TCU will be in attendance hoping to help their respective teams bring home a state title.

Below is a list of those prospects who will be in attendance and will be there to catch all of the action.

Mike Freeze: LB Graham

Freeze will play on both sides of the ball for the Steers, who took home the Division II 7on7 Championship a year ago. If they’re to repeat, they’ll rely heavily on the play of Freeze on both sides of the ball. Graham will start pool play on Thursday and face La Grange, Prairiland and St. Pius X.

Stewart is part of a loaded Horn squad

Jarrison Stewart: WR Mesquite Horn

Stewart helped Horn once again reach the state tournament and the Jaguars are looking to make a run at the title beginning on Friday. Joining Horn in Pool H are Humble Atascocita, Austin Bowie and Katy Cinco Ranch.

Niko Small: DB Arlington Bowie

Will this be the year Bowie makes a run? The Volunteers have playmakers on both sides of the ball and Small is one of them. Small leads a strong Volunteer defense that relies heavily on creating turnovers. Pool play won't be easy for Bowie as they face traditional power John Tyler, Bellaire and Somerset.

Tony James: WR Arlington Bowie

Although recruited as a receiver by the Frogs, James returned to quarterback this spring after a standout performance as a sophomore. James, one of the most versatile players in the state, lines up at quarterback, receiver and even corner for the Volunteers.

Shane Buechele: QB Arlington Lamar

Buechele and his Lamar teammates have never missed a state 7on7 tournament in the tournaments history. Lamar opens play on Friday and will face Cedar Ridge, San Angelo Central and Katy in Pool D.

Obi Eboh: DB Southlake Carroll (2016)

While the Dragons are led on offense by quarterback Ryan Agnew, the defense has been very good this summer as well. Eboh, a big corner, is a reason why the Dragons have been so successful. The Dragons open pool play on Friday and will play Channelview, The Woodlands and Wichita Falls.

Patrick Carr: RB The Woodlands

Carr is one of the quickest players in the state and rest assured he'll be giving opposing defenses fits in 7on7 play. The Woodlands will compete in Pool I with Southlake Carroll, Wichita Falls and Channelview.

Brandon Bowen: WR Byron Nelson (2016)

Bowen isn't a known name just yet in recruiting circles but that's likely to change later this week. At 6-foot-4, 210-pounds, Bowen already has the size to be an elite receiver. He was invited to TCU's sophomore day. Byron Nelson will play in Pool K with Hutto, Plano West and Cy Woods.

Soso Jamabo: RB Plano West

It's still a question whether or not Jamabo will play this weekend as he is currently at The Opening. If he does play he gives West a threat out of the backfield and a big body close to the goal line.

Holton Hill: DB Houston Lamar

Regarded as one of the top defensive backs from the 2015 class, Hill is back to help Lamar make a run at the state title. The 6-foot-1 180-pound corner is a lockdown corner that doesn't let plays happen over the top. Lamar will begin pool play on Friday and compete against Azle, Plano and Port Neches in Pool L.

Deontay Anderson: DB Manvel (2016)

Anderson is considered one of the top prospects in the nation and recently visited TCU for their sophomore day. Anderson is the leader on a very talented Manvel team. The Mavericks will open pool play on Friday and compete against College Station, El Paso Franklin and Lake Dallas.

Jaylon Jones: DB Allen (2016)

Jones received an offer from the Frogs during their sophomore day and is considered one of the top cornerback prospects from the 2016 class. Jones helped Allen reach the state tournament after winning the Prosper SQT. Allen likely won’t face much of a test out of Pool P, competing against Belton, Langham Creek and El Paso Montwood.

Cameron Hicks: WR Fairfield(2016)

Hicks is another player not well known in recruiting circles, but that should change following this weekend. Hicks is a tall target at 6-foot-4, 210-pounds and was a big reason the Eagles reached the Class 3A Division I title game last fall. Expect Hicks to haul in plenty of passes this week, especially in the red zone. Fairfield will play in Division II in Pool B against Eastland, East Bernard and Sabine.

Kris Boyd: DB Gilmer

Like Jamabo, it’s still a question whether or not Boyd will be in College Station later this week since he is in Oregon for The Opening. TCU was one of the first schools to extend the four-star defensive back, but Boyd appears to be leaning toward others. Nevertheless, if he wants TCU, they’d take him. Gilmer begins pool play on Thursday and will compete in loaded pool with Boerne, Cuero and Sweetwater.
