LonghornDigest.com 2015 Texas Top 10

LonghornDigest.com counts down the early top-10 in-state players for 2015 over two parts. In Part One, players 6-10.

6) Larry Pryor, WR/S, Sulphur Springs

One of the more dynamic athletes in the 2015 class, Pryor could potentially make this list either at wide receiver or safety. His best position is probably in the secondary, where he can use his range and ball skills to shut down opposing offenses. He isn't afraid to come up and sting opponents against the running game, either. Could play either safety spot.

7) DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Cedar Hill

Unquestionably the player with the least varsity experience of any player on this list, but Lodge is exceptionally battle-tested even before starring on Friday nights, as he works with the same trainer who works out Jamal Adams, teammate Marcus Green and others. Big-framed wideout with length and the ability to be a mismatch at the next level.

8) Chris Warren, RB/ATH, Rockwall

Many will want to move Warren to defense because of his outstanding size (6-2 220), athleticism (an electronic 4.62 40-yard dash) and tantalizing defensive film. But Warren wants to play running back at the next level, and he showcases the balance, vision and quick feet necessary to excel there. Can go around or through defenders.

9) Jordan Stevenson, RB, Dallas Skyline

Stevenson isn't the biggest back in the world, but if he can toss on another 10 pounds — he weighed 185 at the Dallas NFTC — while maintaining his speed, he'll be one of the top backs in the 2015 class. Stevenson ran an electronic 4.37 at NFTC, and his film is full of the scatback displaying his home run potential.

10) Deionte Thompson, S, West Orange-Stark

West Orange-Stark traditionally produces outstanding defensive backs, and Thompson is just the latest player in that group. A rangy 6-foot-2 safety and soft Alabama commitment, Thompson is a classic zone safety who excels at keeping things in front of him before driving up to make plays.
