LonghornDigest.com 2014 Texas Top 50

LonghornDigest.com's countdown of the Texas Top 50 continues, with arguably the most gifted player in the state at No. 11.

11) Myles Garrett, DE, Arlington Martin

Garrett is probably the most impressive physical specimen in this year's class. He's a chiseled 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, while the Martin staff has clocked him in the 4.5s in the 40-yard dash. The only reason he isn't higher is because he doesn't always show up against top competition. But the potential is here for him to be No. 1.

12) Dylan Sumner-Gardner, S, West Mesquite — Texas A&M

In a lot of other classes, Sumner-Gardner would be the state's top safety and likely a top-10 guy overall. As it is, he isn't far off. Sumner-Gardner combines range and ball skills with an absolute tenacity as a hitter and tackler. There are certain players who have a nose for creating turnovers and big plays, and he's one of them.

13) Donald Catalon, RB, Houston Eisenhower — Texas

Catalon doesn't necessarily blow you away with any one thing that he does, but he's pretty good at everything. He has burst and feet, deceptive speed and the ability to run through arm tackles. Could be one of those 205-210 pound do-it-all types at the next level. Very good vision and balance.

14) Arrion Springs, CB, San Antonio Roosevelt

Springs is somebody who's jumped up a bit through the spring, once he showed he had the athleticism to play corner. With 4.4-electronic speed and ball skills, and decent size for the position, he's a great catch there. Has played safety at Roosevelt, so he's plenty willing to come up in run support.

15) Edwin Freeman, LB, Arlington Bowie

Freeman was a safety, and considered to be a top-20ish player in the state as a sophomore. But as a junior, Bowie needed him to move up into the box and a natural linebacker was born. At 6-2 210, Freeman has nice size, and his athleticism and fluidity make him an ideal three-down linebacker.
