LonghornDigest.com Texas Top 50

LonghornDigest.com is breaking down the top 50 in-state players for 2013. Inside is Nos. 31-35.

31) QB Kohl Stewart, 6-2 190, St. Pius X (Texas A&M)

Stewart isn't big, or overly mobile, but he can be an incredibly accurate pocket passer that can pick a team apart. Because of that, he's a great fit for a Texas A&M spread that is going to allow him to get into a rhythm.


32) DT Kerrick Huggins, 6-4 280, Dallas Skyline (Texas A&M)

Huggins may have gotten a bit overlooked last year on a Skyline defense that included a ton of playmakers. But he was certainly one of them. Huggins excels at using his quickness to weave through blockers and blow up plays.


33) WR Fred Ross, 6-0 180, Tyler John Tyler (Oklahoma State)

Smooth is the operative word for Ross, who makes everything look really easy. Ross can play either as an inside or an outside receiver, but he may be a better fit outside, because he's better at stretching a defense vertically than he is shimmying and shaking to a big gain..


34) RB Kyle Hicks, 5-10 180, Arlington Martin (TEXAS)

Hicks might be higher on this list as a cornerback. But as a running back, Hicks has quick feet and home run potential. Most importantly, he has the hands and ball skills to contribute as a third-down back.


35) OT J.J. Gustafson, 6-6 270, Dallas Jesuit (Texas A&M)

In a class where so many of the tackle prospects are right tackles, Gustafson stands out as a high-level left tackle option. He's excellent in pass protection and could wind up protecting Stewart's blind side at the next level.
