Top uncommitted athletes (Houston edition)

As signing day draws closer, many of the state's football players have ended the recruiting process by given their verbal commitments. And while the larger number has made their choices, more than a handful are still seeking that right fit. TexasPrepInsider's Ahmard Vital takes a quick look at some of his top Houston-area athletes.

QB Kenneth Guiton (6-2, 175) Aldine Eisenhower
Though his numbers were not what they were last season, Guiton could still be considered on the city's top passers. In 2008 he threw for 1,670 yards, 17 touchdowns to nine interceptions. In the off-season, he pulled in his first offer from Kansas. Then schools like Houston, Northwestern, Iowa State, and Rice stepped up as well. Slowly but surely, the spots at all of those schools started to fill. Either way, Guiton will be a steal for whatever program reels him in.

RB Dominic Wilkins (5-11, 180) Klein Forest
Surely with the speed and quickness of Wilkins has a spot a college roster right? Well, schools like Baylor, Houston, and Kansas think so but the speedy back is still looking. He emerged on the scene as a junior, which catapulted him to where he is right now. This past season, Wilkins ran for 1,446 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also had two receiving touchdowns as well.

QB Shane Ros (5-11, 190) Katy Cinco Ranch
Not sure what more Ros needs to do to prove himself, but there are programs that have taken notice. One of the city's top dual-threat quarterbacks, Ros made things happen weekly for the Cougar squad. He threw for 2,044 yards, 22 touchdowns to nine interceptions. He added another 660 yards on the ground and 14 touchdowns. Ros is still talking with plenty of schools, but none have extended the offer. Not sure what position he will end up playing at the next level.

DB Chase Maires (5-10, 195) The Woodlands
Here is an athlete who has the potential to do a little damage on the next level. Solid on the run support and not bad in pass coverage as well. He ended up with 56 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and four pass break-ups. At the moment, Utah State and Air Force is a couple of schools in pursuit. And rightfully, so as Maires has claimed that he wants to head west for college.

RB Bo Snelson (5-8, 180) Pasadena Memorial
Anytime the name Snelson was brought up it seems like many would say that is he was a little bigger and faster, more colleges would come after him. But watching him for the past couple of years I have come to one conclusion, the kid can ball. Just get the rock in his hands and let him do his thing. He averaged seven yards a carry and had 1,904 yards and 24 touchdowns rushing. As a quarterback (not a typo), he was 48-of-77 for 714 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. 
And there is even a bonus, he hits the books just as hard as an open hole on a toss sweep. Latest word was that Navy was the team most likely to get him, but the Ivy League schools have been on him hard because of his stellar GPA and test scores.

WR Ja-Mes Logan (6-3, 185) Spring Westfield
Logan has been busy since his last high school football game and here recently a leader was named. During his senior campaign, he caught 45 passes for 793 yards and 11 touchdowns. This weekend coming up he a trip scheduled to Ole Miss. But both Arizona and Oregon's stocks dropped after a trip to Stillwater and now Oklahoma State is the team to beat at the moment.

RB Curtis McGregor (5-11, 180) Aldine Eisenhower
It's no secret to what McGregor can do on the field, In fact, on either side of the ball, he is a Division I recruit. He has doubled for the past two years, but is more lethal on offense. McGregor ran for 907 yards and scored 15 touchdowns. As a receiver he was not quite as potent, but had seven catches, two of which went for scores. Arizona, Arkansas, TCU, and Texas Tech are some of his offer. Last update on record he was saying that Missouri was a team he was interest in, but have not offered as of yet.

LB Colin Renton (6-0, 200) The Woodlands
Renton is your typical blue-collar type player who just plays with a lot of emotion. Has pretty good lateral government and is good about making the tackle at the point of attack. He racked up 45 tackles, two forced fumbles, and three sacks on the year 
It seems as though Navy is the team to beat, but Renton is open to any interest up until a letter of intent is placed before him.
