Recruiting: The Texas Hot 100 Juniors

Early rankings of the top 100 high school senior-to-be prospects in the state of Texas.

Following are our early rankings of the top high school prospects in the state of Texas. As the year progresses -- and particularly as we watch more film, scout spring practices and camps and compile more information from coaches and players -- these rankings are likely to change, in some cases substantially. Originally published February 6. (An early version of this list, in Top 80 form, was available in mid-January in the Inside Scoop.)

IT subscribers, click here for the top 100 with each player's height, weight and 40 time info. (Please also see our Inside the Class of '04 reports, linked near the top left of this page, on each of the Longhorn signees, with strengths, areas to improve, exclusive photos, and much more.)
