LonghornDigest.com Texas Top 50

LonghornDigest.com is counting down the state's top-50 players for 2013. In the last group before the top-10, we have Nos. 11-15.

11) DE Torrodney Prevot, 6-4 210, Alief Taylor

If there's one question about Prevot, it's the possibility that he won't be able to add enough bulk to play with his hand on the ground. Prevot has everything else: height, length, pass-rushing instincts and the quickness that could allow him to play standing up as a linebacker at the next level if he doesn't bulk up.

12) RB Dontre Wilson, 5-10 175, DeSoto

Wilson has lightning speed, and the quick feet to earn the space to take advantage of it. There might not be a faster player in the state with pads on, and Wilson also brings the added benefit of soft hands, so he can do some serious damage in the passing game as well.

13) WR Jake Oliver, 6-4 195, Dallas Jesuit (Texas)

Oliver is the kind of big-bodied target that teams covet, except that he's significantly more polished than the average 6-4 guy. He's an excellent route-runner and has soft hands. And while he isn't exactly a burner, you don't see him getting caught from behind very often, either.

14) LB Deoundrei Davis, 6-2 220, Cypress Woods (TEXAS)

You can compare Davis to Peter Jinkens of the 2012 recruiting class, except that I'm not sure Davis (who is bigger) isn't a little bit better as a prospect. He might not be quite as fast — few linebackers run 4.52 — he has excellent speed and is a great player in space and a nice tackler to boot.

15) OL Ishmael Wilson, 6-5 275, Dallas Bishop Dunne (Texas A&M)

Wilson could be an excellent tackle at the next level, but I think he might be at his best as a pulling guard. Wilson has fantastic feet and does a nice job of blocking people at the second level. With his frame and athleticism, there's a ton to like here.
