2008 Mesquite Horn Prospects

The junior class at John Horn High School in Mesquite (Texas) is loaded with talent. Head Coach Don Payne provided a list of kids that could make a splash in recruiting circles over the next couple of months.

A few of these kids might not have the size to be major Division I prospects, but each has the potential to play somewhere after they graduate.

Gary Green plays offensive tackle for Horn. The 6-foot-2, 250 pound Green will need to put on some weight in order to get the attention of D-1 coaching staffs.

Linebacker Jody Owens runs the 40-yard dash in 4.9 seconds. The 6-foot-0, 190 pound Owens benches 220 pounds and squats 265.

Bruce Hatton is one of the smallest prospects in Texas, but he can fly. The 5-foot-4, 135 pound Hatton runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds.

Wide receiver Derrick Barnes also needs to beef up in order to gain interest from major college programs. He has the height at 5-foot-11 but only weighs 150 pounds.

Cameron Onic plays safety for Horn. The 5-foot-10, 164 pound safety runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds. He will likely need to make a move to corner in college.

Horn also has a very talented kicker. With a good season, the 5-foot-7, 140 pound Josh Hudgens should begin hearing from D-1 schools.

The 5-foot-11, 185 pound Chase Potter plays linebacker. He benches 220 pounds and squats 265. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds.

Donyea Hamilton is probably the biggest prospect in the junior class at Horn. At 6-foot-0, 225 pounds, Hamilton has the potential to become a big time linebacker prospect. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.9 seconds and squats 250 pounds.

Wide receiver Obie Nwabuko is one the strongest of the prospects at Horn. He benches 215 pounds and squats 315. The 5-foot-9, 172 pound Nwabuko runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds.

Demarcus Smith plays quaterback for Horn. The 5-foot-9, 168 pound Smith is a speedy quarterback that would likely need to make the transition to corner or wide receiver on the next level. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds and squats 295 pounds.
