Lone Star Recruiting's June Hot 100 List
1. OL - Ofa Mohetau - Euless Trinity
Comment: Still rated as the top player in the state. Of the top three players in the state, he is the most dominant of the bunch on the field.
2. TE - Tony Hills Jr. - Alief Elsik
Comment: Every coach that has seen Hills up close is just in love with his talent and raw ability. His upside is as high as anyone, anywhere.
3. OL -Jorrie Adams - Jasper
Comment: There are some people that actually rate Adams a little higher than Mohetau. I'm still leaning to Mohetau, but that might change later in the year.
4. DE - Jarvis Moss - Denton Ryan
Comment: Franchise defensive ends don't grow on trees and Moss leads this year's stellar class in-state.
5. DE - Justin Warren - Tyler Lee

7. DE - Tim Crowder - John Tyler
Comment: This year's class of defensive ends is simply amazing.
8. DB - Tony Cade - Lewisville
Comment: His physical tools and aggression on the field make him a real difference maker at safety. The only question mark are his coverage skills.

Comment: Kennedy is the only defensive tackle prospect in the state that I've seen that rates with the best from last year's great class in-state.
10. DB - Tarell Brown - North Mesquite

Comment: With his size and ability, Sweed's a future playmaker at the college level.
