LonghornDigest.com 2014 Texas Top 50

And now, for the top 25. LonghornDigest.com starts with the first half of the Texas Top 50, beginning with Nos. 21-25.

21) Jarrett Johnson, DE, Katy Seven Lakes

While Johnson is the fourth-ranked defensive end here, I wouldn't be surprised if he develops into the best pass-rusher out of this class. He certainly has the burst and acceleration to get it done, and when he fills out to his final size, he could wind up being one of the elite guys in this in-state class. Great at getting the QB.

22) John Bonney, S, Houston Lamar

With the overabundance of safeties in the 2014 class, Bonney can get overlooked a bit. But he's a rangy guy who can run and cover. He's especially comfortable breaking on the ball, making you think he could excel as a classic centerfielder type. He's also more physical than you would think, given that he hasn't thickened up yet.

23) Demetrius Knox, OG, Fort Worth All Saints

Knox is the state's top offensive lineman, and he's a good one. Blessed with nice size/length for a guard, Knox also moves well and shows the ability to pull and get to defenders at the second level. Can be a physical presence in the run game, but also displays ability to pass protect.

24) DeShawn Washington, DT, Nederland — Texas A&M

The top defensive tackle in the state, Washington has excellent get-off and is a playmaker on the interior. He even played a bit of tight end for Nederland last year, making for one scary 6-foot-3, 280-pound guy on the edge of the offensive line. But his athleticism and power make him an ideal three technique at the next level.

25) Armanti Foreman, WR, Texas City

Foreman plays on the outside in high school, but might project as a slot at the next level because of his size. Either way, he's a playmaking threat with his smooth running style that makes him seem like he's not going as fast as he is. An outstanding deep thread who can kill defenders on double moves.
