Rivals . National Recruitment Analyst Nick Harriswith Cole Patterson of the Orangebloods.com, Brandon Holland of the BirdsUp.com (UTSA) and national recruitment director Adam G palm address three topics and determine whether each statement is FACT or AFFECT.
1. Anthony Evans is the best offensive prospect from the greater San Antonio area since Malcolm Brown in the 2011 season.
Harris’ take: TRUTH. Oklahoma do Anthony Evans Has a game-changing pace for an attack that has never been seen before in the San Antonio area, especially from a wide receiving position. Because of that elite track speed and his improved skill set including a developed route tree and the ability to slip past tacklers, Evans will be able to contribute early and often in Norman, that is. is something his predecessors in the San Antonio area couldn’t really say in the past.
Holland’s take: FICTION. It’s certainly understandable how this question can be asked, given that Evans is renowned for his speed and has been the biggest offensive name on this season’s legendary Judson High School roster. The San Antonio area can be a no-go for born talent that not everyone knows about. The city has been home to many talented prospects since the old Longhorn era Malcolm Brown in 2011. There are exceptional talents, such as the 2013 Madison High School reopening Marquis of WarfordSteele High School 2014 reopens Justin StocktonIn 2021 Harlan High School expands Dre SpriggsCornerstone Christian midfield in 2021 Lucas Coley and Harlan QB High School Kannon Williamsto name a few.
2. Devin Sanchez has the best chance of challenging Dakorien Moore for the top Texas prospect in 2025.
Harris’ take: TRUTH. Devin Sanchez is the next potential five-star talent at the North Shore power station in the Houston area, and it’s ironic that he’ll be up against Duncanville wide receiver Dakorien Moore for the top spot in the state based on the two teams’ recent history together over the years. Sanchez’s length, pace, and ability to cover put him in an elite group across all recruiting classes when it comes to college potential, especially at this young age. In fact, his physical development is something he has on Moore with, and if he can support it with an outstanding second season, we could be looking at a state of numbers. 1 new.
Patterson’s Comments: TRUTH. Full-back is a senior position and Sanchez looks set to become a high-profile prospect early on in his high school career. He has the frame, athletic record and ambient conditions to be a high-level defensive back, leading to Alabama, Texas and others to provide. There are a lot of WRs that will probably be mixed. I’m also a big fan of tight endings Davon Mitchell – who is completely out of place in the passing game – but Sanchez has the best shot at robbing Moore of #1 at this point thanks to his combined talent/position.
3. Texas’ performance against Alabama moved turnover from a national perspective with rookies from all walks of life.
Harris’ take: TRUTH. Despite Saturday’s loss, Texas make its presence known on a national scale with its performance against Alabama leading to a narrow defeat against the Crimson Tide. When talking to rookies throughout last week around the country, it’s clear that there’s more attention on what Texas is up to this week and throughout the season now. Steve Sarkisian is starting to put things together in Austin. With a strong 2023 class already in the works, I see the potential to only grow from here on out if Texas can produce more impressive performances on the field.
Lawyers put: TRUTH. Whether it is Tausili Akana or many of the other top prospects in attendance last weekend – especially those in the 2024 and 2025 classes – people saw Texas as not only almost annoyed then-No. 1 Alabama but looks better than Tide in many areas. That will leave a huge impact on the recruiting landscape because the place is going strong, Texas has a stellar performance, and the top rookies will want to be a part of that. QB is committed Arch Manning and commit WR Johntay Cook are all active employers among other commitments. The Longhorns are currently on the right track under the Sarkisian, and even in a losing attempt, Texas could have won big on the recruiting road.
