For the class of 2013 there were 23 signees. The biggest area of need was Linebacker and there were 3 signees at that position, one are of need that did not get met was at Safety where the staff signed a very good one in George Baltimore and may have an athlete move to that position, but there stil is a lack of depth that will need to be addressed in the class of 2014.

Signees (23):

Zach Allen QB 6-3/190/4.6 Temple, TX Elite 11 QB and former Syracuse commit, offers included OkieSt.




Jermaine Antione CB/RB/S 5-11/190/4.55 Loreauville, LA offered by TAMU, 1st Team All-State, recruited as CB and returner.

George Baltimore S 5-10/205/4.51 Mansfield, TX 2011 recorded 76 tackles, 13 pass breakups and seven interceptions, two for touchdowns. Top 100 in Texas

Bryson Burtnett TE/DE 6-5/227/4.7 Springtown, TX

ESPN Analyst
Updated 06/06/2012
Burtnett plays in all three phases of the game at the high school level, but will likely contribute as a special teams and offensive player at the college level. He possesses solid size at this stage as he has good height and a lean, but somewhat wiry build and he should be able to pack on some decent additional mass with time in a college weight program. Offensively he looks to be predominately used as a blocker, but flashes some tools to be able to contribute as a receiving target. He flashes good strong hands and the ability to extend for the ball and snatch it out of the air. Flashes good vertical ability to be able to go up and high-point the ball. Demonstrates above average straight-line speed for the position and could potentially create some challenging match-ups vertically at the next level. His use as a receiving target looks to be somewhat limited and looks to run just a few basic routes when he is utilized in the passing game and will need development as a route runner. While he can run well he does displays some tightness and could have a bit more difficulty winning in transition and creating space from athletic defenders as a route runner. Good speed for after the catch, but displays more adequate ability to elude defenders and create yards when he makes a grab in traffic. As a blocker has experience as an in-line player, but looks like he can benefit more as a movement type player who can gain a head of steam and be able to utilize angles. Displays the ability to get low and get under defenders pads, but needs to do a better job of making initial contact and delivering a pop as he can display a tendency to almost catch defenders. Needs to be more explosive on contact and consistently keep his feet moving to help him generate better push. Also displays ability as a long snapper and even if he doesn't contribute in that manner with his size/speed ratio he should be able to be a good special teams contributor in his career. Burtnett is a kid with some physical tools. He shows strengths in some areas and limitations in others and if he can polish his strengths and strengthen/mask his weakness some he could develop into a productive college player.

Cydney Calvin CB 6-1/180/4.45 Frisco, TX (Centennial) 37" vert switched from WR to CB and finished strong in 2012.

http://www.hudl.com/...lights/26969375

Sammy Douglas OLB/S 6-2/180/4.6 S Arlington, TX Younger brother of Curtis Douglas and more of a true safety though plays at LBer. Covers well and extremely athletic. Good hip turn and has great size for a cover safety. 1st team all-district in 2011.

Was recruited by TT, OU and UT (has JD invites from Tech & OU).

ESPN Analyst
Updated 02/21/2012
Douglas is very active stopping the run off the edge and to the sideline; his production can only improve when more bulk is added to his long frame. Has the height and athleticism for the outside linebacker position at the major level of competition. This guy is a tough customer who displays sound tackling skills; will take on ball carriers; but presently lacks the upper body playing strength to knock runners back where they came from. His quickness and agility should serve him well as a special team's coverage defender. This is a fluid athlete, capable of playing on his feet in space; demonstrates the ability to turn and change direction with very little wasted movement. Does a very good job with key and diagnosis reaction skills when playing vs. the run and pass; is quick off the mark showing an aggressive downhill attacking effort when playing the run. At times he can be overpowered when forced to take on offensive linemen at the point of attack when defending against the inside run; can beat blockers through open gaps and avoid contact with his instincts and nose for the football. Displays very good lateral pursuit; moves through traffic well displaying very good sideline to sideline range vs. the outside run. His hips appear fluid when playing in coverage; we see good potential as both a zone and man defender. Is capable of crossing over for good depth with eyes on the quarterback while showing good underneath route awareness; flashes good break on balls thrown in front of him. This is an intense player, capable being disruptive in an opponent's backfield; can make momentum changing plays during the course of a game. Douglas does not appear to be an immediate impact player at the BCS level of play, however once bulk is added to his frame, he should have a long and productive career at the major level of competition.

Cameron Echols-Luper ATH/WR/DB 6-0/190/4.4 Auburn, AL originally from Texas, step-dad from Sherman and former Auburn and OSU RB coach. Junior olympian and plans to run track in college (200m and long jump). Former TAMU commit and offered by UT and many others.



Eason Fromayan OT 6-5/280/4.9 Alpharetta, GA (Milton) Son of former TCU basketball player, great feat and hands, switched from Cincy.

http://www.hudl.com/...hlights/2238371

ESPN Analyst
Updated 02/22/2012

Fromayan is an effective swing tackle with the strong hands and mobility needed to control defenders when run blocking. Has the size and athleticism for the offensive tackle position at the major level of competition. His frame appears capable of supporting additional body mass over time. Playing out of a three point stance we detect some stiffness in the knees however his balance and foot quickness allow him to play on his feet in space; does a very good job of reacting to quickness in a tight box while demonstrating the ability to adjust his feet to change of direction movement when on an island. Is aggressive and quick coming off the fall; although his initial pad level is too high we see the upper body explosion needed to knock defenders off the line of scrimmage and gain an immediate advantage. Has the initial quickness and athleticism to reach for leverage; is very quick releasing to linebackers while showing the ability to consistently get a hat on active 1st and 2nd level defenders; is effective as a downfield blocker. With added bulk and improved playing strength, this lineman should be able to make all the run blocks at the next level. We like his tough, nasty finishing effort. His long arms and nimble feet will be assets in pass protection; although he plays to high at times we see the balance needed to slide to the top of the pocket without crossing his feet; shows the athleticism needed to recover and get out of trouble. All areas of hand use will need attention. Fromayan does not appear to be an immediate starter at the BCS level of play; some time and perhaps a red shirt year may be necessary to grow physically while polishing his skills.

Bryson Henderson DE 6-6/250/4.7 Mansfield, TX (Summit) younger brother of Adrian Taylor, Top 100 player, 2011 75 tackles, 9 sacks, 7-4A defensive MVP.

ESPN Analyst
Updated 03/16/2012

Henderson can line up inside in high school and while he could potentially grow into/develop as a three-technique at the next level he will likely slide outside and develop more as an end. He possesses real good size at this stage in both height and bulk and his frame looks like it's capable of supporting more good mass with further physical development. He displays good quickness off the ball and is capable of getting some disruptive penetration. He demonstrates the ability to fire off the ball low and with good initial quicks he can get into the gap and gain leverage. Displays solid ability to come across the ball and flatten and get down the line. Flashes the ability come off the ball and shoot his hands and cerate separation, but needs to be more consistent at bringing his hands. Displays a good motor and long speed. He is a solid wrap-up tackler. As a pass rusher can quickly get to half-a-man, but needs to better use his weapons and further develop his pass rush arsenal to help work past and clear from blockers. Henderson displays some good raw tools and with further development could grow into a productive and even disruptive college defender.

Kyle Hicks RB 5-10/195/4.55 Arlington, TX (Martin) former UT commit, was all-district DB as a soph and played RB and QB during junior & senior years. Outstanding athlete.

Denzel Johnson S 6-2/200/4.5 Gainesville, TX played QB & FS in HS

http://www.hudl.com/...#denzel-johnson

Travorris Johnson RB 6'0/205 Johnson has extremely stong lower body and combined with his 4.55 speed he is an absolute train coming out of the backfield.

Tevin Lawson DT 6-4/285/4.8 Denham Springs, LA former LSU commit and a late signee, picked TCU over LSU, Ol Miss, and Ken.

http://www.hudl.com/...1/#tevin-lawson


Patrick Morris OG 6-3/290 Denton, TX (Guyer) Extremely strong, offered by WaSt, TexT and others. Has resisted overtures from UT staff.

ESPN Analyst
Updated 04/27/2012
Morris is a tough inline run blocker who demonstrates the ability to dominate using his upper body playing strength. Although a very efficient offensive tackle, his size and athleticism are best suited for the guard spot at the major level of competition; a growth spurt would allow him to add some body mass before beginning his collegiate career. We do see some lower body stiffness when playing in space however he comes of the ball aggressively, with a flat back, good base and persistent leg drive; flashes the initial quickness needed to establish and maintain an immediate advantage. Displays the ability to roll his hips and get underneath opponent's pads when single blocking. Demonstrates the ability to step around and get up on linebackers. We see the athleticism needed to get a hat on active 1st and 2nd level defenders. His arm length and upper body playing strength will be assets in pass protection; does a good job short setting and playing stout on the line of scrimmage; shows the balance and agility needed to bend, slide and move his feet in a tight box. We like his initial punch and location; works hard to re-locate his hands inside; plays strong vs. the straight on power rush, demonstrating the ability to hold his ground and not allow the pocket to collapse; flashes double read potential. This guy is a tough customer who wins the battles in trenches while demonstrating a nasty finishing effort. Morris may need some time and perhaps a red shirt year to grow physically while polishing his skills.

Joseph Noteboom OT 6-6/260/4.7 Plano, TX Offered by Texas Tech, Purdue, Northwestern, Iowa State & others. Also plays DE & TE.

http://www.hudl.com/...hlights/7271384

Charlie Reid TE 6-4/225/4.65 Fort Worth (All Saints Episcopal)

ESPN Analyst
Updated 04/20/2012
Reid is a tight end who shows good toughness and the tools to be a productive part of a passing attack. He possesses adequate height and solid bulk and will likely fit best as more of an H-Back at the next level. He should with some time in a college weight program be able to pack on some additional size to his frame. He can be a productive receiving target with good hands. He displays the ability to extend and catch the ball before it gets into his frame when he can. He adjusts to the ball well and displays the ability catch passes thrown outside his frame. He displays above average straight-line speed. He does not display great initial quickness and explosion getting in and out of his breaks, but he is a solid and somewhat crafty route runner that can create some space. Displays the ability to find the soft spot in the defense and understands when to throttle and when to use speed to get open. Not overly elusive after the catch, but runs with a physical style and will fight for yards. He can help move the chains as a receiver, but will need to develop and produce as a blocker as well. Displays the toughness and willingness to get physical when he needs to and can deliver a pop when he engages a defender, but will need to keep developing technique and show the ability to consistently produce as a blocker in the run game. Reid is a kid who seems to play hard and give what he's got to try and get the job done and make plays. Displays the tools to be a productive receiving target and value will increase if he can also contribute well as a blocker.

Dac Shaw LB 6-3/205/4.51 Mineola, TX Also plays RB

2011 stats: 95 tackles, 20 for loss, 6 sacks and 3 forced fumbles on defense. 118 carries for 1,327 yards and 28 TDs on offense.

ESPN Analyst
Updated 05/03/2012
Give this guy some time to physically develop and you may have yourself a major BCS level sleeper. Shaw is an athletic linebacker who can run, hit and make plays sideline-to-sideline. Could project inside or out depending on scheme and continued physical development. Tall, long and rangy -- just in need of some bulk and power on his promising frame. Plays with good bend and flexibility. Quick reactions and good instincts on his pursuit to the football. Flows well laterally to the ball and very natural feel for the position. Really quick off the spot when filling inside. Shows the burst to beat blockers to the point of attack. Quick enough to take inside-outside angles and make stops near the line of scrimmage. Agility and balance to effectively sift through traffic while mirroring and keeping leverage on the ball carrier. Plays with good leverage and strength but is better scraping off blocks laterally than taking on blockers and trying to stack square on. Stays clean for the most part but question if he will be able to take on and get off blocks in the middle at the BCS level, at least early one. Strength will be tested at the point of attack and feel he will need some time to develop. Does show a lot of pop and initial explosion as a tackler but needs to do a better job wrapping up and bringing his hips through. Better at this stage rushing the passer and pressuring with his timing, quick first-step, closing burst and intense effort than dropping in coverage although he has the athleticism and hips to develop in that facet. Strong, upright running back on offense with load-back qualities but we feel Shaw has the frame, speed and instincts that offer a lot of upside at outside linebacker at this stage. Falling under the radar now but we expect recruiting to heat up for Shaw heading into the spring and summer evaluation period.

Ty Slanina WR/S 6-1/180/4.31 East Bernard, TX Plays QB and offered as WR

ESPN Analyst
Updated 02/13/2012
It may be too early to tell what position Slanina is destined to play at the next level, but it is very easy to tell the kid can run like the wind. Slanina is an option based QB in a scheme that utilizes his run skills and speed by placing him under center and making him the focal point of the offense. He is not a candidate to remain at QB however. Defensively he plays mostly on the perimeter and in our opinion should move to safety if he does not get a shot at wide receiver too. He can be tough to project, but easy to like due to his natural athleticism and speed. Is a smooth and fluid runner with sudden lateral agility and the ability to hit top speed rapidly. He is very competent as an option operator. Makes quick, sound decisions and puts continual pressure on the defense. At this level if he hits the second level he is a huge homerun threat. He constantly puts himself in the right position by keying the quarterback and anticipating throws. Consistently puts himself between the ball and the receiver. He is productive, always around the ball and rarely covers grass as a pass defender. Flashes athleticism to go along with the intuition and instincts. Extremely quick and sharp out of his pedal. He breaks smoothly in either direction, which is why he is effective roaming the middle at free safety and able to take chances at corner. When receivers do break his cushion, he is fast enough to turn, run and recover. He is not afraid to mix it up in the run game as well. Effectively gets through the trash when running the alley and stepping up in the box. However, Stanina looks out of place at corner in his pedal. Is high and lacks technique. Needs to be in the middle. Stanina is just an athlete and football player who can run. You take this guy and figure out what you want to do when you get him.

Ranthony Texada DB 5-10/160/4.38 Frisco, TX (Centennial)

ESPN Analyst
Updated 06/15/2012
Texada is smaller, competitive corner with good speed, quickness and ball skills. Best asset may be his football smarts and ability to read route development. This is a savvy young defender who positions himself correctly and has a nose for the football in coverage. Goes up and high-points the ball showing good hands and leaping skills. Has the speed and elusive play-maker skills to be a threat with the ball in his hands after the INT. Productive underneath defender as well. Shows a very good understanding of zone concepts; reading the quarterback, mid-pointing high-low routes and jumping passes with timing and quickness. He has great anticipation skills and awareness incoverage. Drives strong on the pass in front of him. Makes solid contact as a hitter and often jars the ball away from receivers on impact when he arrives with the ball. Smooth in pedal, footwork and transition, shows he can recover with good closing quicks when caught out of position. Will mix it up physically and has some deceptive pop to his gamebut size and run support skills are one area we feel he will be challenged atthe college level. While a savvy zone defender he will need to add a lot of size to consistently set the edge and make wrap up tackles. Could be tested versus taller and more explosive BCS level receivers vertically as well. Appears quicker than fast and possesses better closing burst than top-end speed. Appears to have better zone skills and does not project as a lock-down cover corner without over the top help at the highest level of competition. That said, we feel Texada is falling under the BCS level radar some and is a starter at that level if a team is patient with his physical development. Should contribute on special teams early in his career. Confident kick returner who shows very good hands and awareness skills fielding the ball and vision and elusiveness finding the vertical seam and making defenders miss.

Steve Wesley
DB/WR 6-1/175/4.6 Arlington, TX (Bowie)

ESPN Analyst

Updated 05/17/2012
Wesley grows on you as a defensive prospect the more you watch how well-rounded he is. Tall, well-built and lengthy and will utilize his size to his advantage pressing and playing tight coverage. Has the sought-after frame to match up with today's taller college receivers. Runs well and possesses good make-up speed but is a bit straight-line with some tightness in his overall movements. While not overly fluid in transition he is balanced in footwork and does not lose a lot of steps turning and running with vertical routes. Could be smoother but he keeps inside leverage, shows good leaping and high-point skills and forces QB's to make difficult downfield throws. Shows he can play aggressive tight coverage as well and reroute receivers off the line and maintain proper positioning. Good with his hands in press and tight coverage. Effective playing with a cushion as well and closing on the pass in front of him. Shows good timing and plant and drive burst out of pedal. Sharp out of breaks and displays some pop on contact. Does a good job limiting yards after the catch and is effective setting the edge on underneath run support as well. However, we do not see dominate strength versus the run to project high as a college safety and lacks fluid and sudden change-of-direction of a BSC level cover corner prospect. Hips and top-end speed will be tested on an island. Projects best in zone schemes where he can be aggressive and play the receiver in front of him and or even in press where he can utilize his hands to control receivers off the line. Overall, Wesley is a bit of a S/CB tweener but is scheme versatile and productive. Has upside and tools to develop. Potential steal if he lands at the Non-BCS level.

Paul Whitmill LB 6-1/200/4.5 Bastrop, TX Offers included OU, AZ, Ark, TAMU, TTech, etc, possibly best LB in Texas, also plays RB. Camped in July

ESPN Analyst
Updated 06/16/2011
Whitmill is very productive as both a running back and linebacker; may get a look at the running back position however we feel his size and athleticism are best suited for the outside linebacker position at the major level of competition; his frame appears capable of supporting additional bulk over time. This guy is a tough customer with the wrap tackling skills which don't allow yards after contact; demonstrates good open field tackling ability and should be very productive as a special team's coverage defender. As a running back, we like his quickness and vision in traffic; runs over his pads with slashing, downhill style that is very effective at the second level; has the shake and burst needed to finish in the end zone. Displays the flexibility, agility and balance needed to play in space; does a very good job as an underneath zone coverage defender; demonstrates the ability to crossover for depth with eyes on the quarterback. This prospect runs well, suggesting potential as a man coverage defender. Lines up both on and off the line of scrimmage, showing the initial quickness needed to get off the mark and take on blockers at the point of attack; can play downhill from an "on" and "off" alignment or use his quick hands and flexibility "on" the line to playoff blocks while keeping his feet free; shows he can set the edge and working to the sideline. This linebacker moves through traffic very well; demonstrates the ability to turn and change direction when in lateral pursuit. We like his makeup speed when in long pursuit; plays with the explosiveness needed to be effective as an edge rusher. Whitmill does not appear to be an immediate starter at the BCS level of play. However his playing speed, toughness and production could earn him early situational play time on defense and special teams.

Wow. Nice to see who we're looking at, but geez--two years out now? I guess it's good to get in early so you can develop your recruiting strategy over a longer horizon. But it's got to be art more than science...

Ran across this little blurb on a Horns' website concerning their current status with 2013 recruit Tyrone Swoopes . . .

As far as information on THE playmaker in the 2013 class, our staff doesn't feel confident about their chances with dual threat QB Tyrone Swoopes. It's very early in this race, but the coaches just aren't feeling the warm fuzzies they usually get with top-ranked in-state prospects. Fortunately for Texas fans, this staff's style is a far cry from the lazy country club-style recruiting that plagued the program in recent years.

This is what I said about him in a post on June 6:

A'Shawn "Tank" Robinson 6-4/305 OT/DL Ft Worth, TX (Arlington Heights) Plays basketball & football and loves DL but his best position is probably OT. Was impressive at the TCU Nike Camp, UT hard for him.

Hearing rumblings already about several. Any info on G Baltimore, Swoopes, and Robinson? How are chances of staff keeping local big time talent here and are we making any progress in the Dallas-Mesquite-Garland area? Seems to be more than enough for UT to raid every yr. Kinda frustrating seeing so many leave with them being so close.

Just wanted to make a case for taking J.T. Barrett over Swoopes, mainly because I feel Barrett is every bit as good a runner as Swoopes (and against better competition) but is a better passer (68% completion rate vs 52%).

J.T. Barrett highlight video (don't know how to embed the thing)
Boys, there's a new sheriff in town and it's TCU . . . Excellent!

Aloha Feisty. Do you know anything about Kamalei Correa? He's a defensive lineman from Saint Louis High School in Honolulu. He'll be a 2013 graduate and has offers thus far from Hawaii and Washington State. He has a long list of "schools of interest", including TCU. Also listed are Alabama, Arizona, Boise State, Colorado, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, and Washington. He'd be expensive to recruit because of the travel costs and I don't know if TCU has a strong interest or not. Have you heard of him? I'd love to see an island pipeline to TCU. Hawaii high school talent doesn't match Texas but there are always some prize recruits who end up in the PAC-12 (and lately, at Notre Dame).

Any news on Tristan Nickelson -- his dad Ron played for TCU in the late 80's.

I had not heard of him and don't think TCU has made contact but kid looks like he will be a good one. Looks like a solid player with lots of family ties to UH (offered). Hopefully the coaches will take a look at him and maybe start sending him some info to judge his interest. I think he has Notre Dame as his dream school.

Looks like he could play LB, DE or DT depending upon how he develops.

Tristan has a top 3 of Mich, TAMU and LSU. Big kid last listed at 6-7/280 at the end of his JR season. Probably way too slow for CGPs liking at this point (ran a 6.41 at the UA combine).
He has some (alot of) work to do to get close to his favorites and TCU on his list and has at least contacted him.
