'Crootin: Put UTSA on the board!


Trevor Roberson - Offensive Line 6-11, 355 Wellington, TX

You read that right, Roberson is 6-11 and 355 pounds. He has offers from several P5 teams including Texas A&M, Arkansas, TCU, USC, Nebraska, and Notre Dame. His size is obviously the selling point, but he also has a few things working against him; first he plays in the smallest eleven man classification in the state and second, playing in the Panhandle, the level of competition isn't high. Still, he's an intriguing prospect. 


Kelen Burrle - Linebacker 6-0, 185 Harvey, LA

Burrle is a four-star rated, 2020 prospect from Frank Wilson's old stomping grounds in Louisiana. According to 24/7, he's got offers from some big-time programs, namely Texas A&M, LSU, Tennessee, and West Virginia. He attended A&M's camp on June 14 and then drove over to San Antonio on June 16. 


Simon Gonzalez - Tight End 6-3, 222 Magnolia West

Late last night (Friday) Gonzalez announced via Twitter his commitment to Texas Tech. A three-star composite, Arizona, Arizona State, and Virginia Tech as well as a bunch of G5s. Gonzalez caught 28 passes for the Mustangs in 2017. 


Rashad Wisdom - Safety 5-10, 190 Converse Judson

Wisdom has offers from Syracuse, BC, Virginia, and a bunch of G5s. He's a fluid athlete, emphasis on athlete. Wisdom plays safety, running back, and returns kick. He's also from one of the most storied programs in the state, perhaps the most renowned in South Texas. He's the kind of recruit that can act as a pied piper for other big-time players.

Zach Calzada - Quarterback 6-3, 195 Buford, GA

Calzada is a three-star composite according to 24/7. He has dozens of offers, including Georgia, Tennessee, NC State and Oklahoma State and he'll get that fourth star. Jimbo Fisher continues to recruit the southern hotbeds with Calzada coming from Georgia.

Zach Marcheselli - Linebacker 6-2, 210 Broken Arrow, OK

Marcheselli, pronounced Marcheselli, is a three-star prospect with offers from Colorado, Nebraska, K-State, and Tech. He's a sideline to sideline linebacker with good speed. If he's 220, then he's got a frame to take more weight. Broken Arrow, by the way, has the greatest midfield logo in football. Google that shit. 


Joshua Wyatt - Safety 5-10, 190 Houston C.E. King

Wyatt broke open UTSA's recruiting, the first commit of 2019, coaxing Roadrunner recruiting watchers off the ledge. Wyatt has offers from Georgia and Syracuse according to 24/7. Syracuse is sniffing around a lot of Texas kids. We need to confiscate Dino Babers passport on his next trip in. Wyatt plays a hybrid linebacker/jack or star for C.E. King, and he's a downhill thumper. 


La'Vontae Shenault - Wide Receiver 6-1, 185 DeSoto

Shenault is a three-star receiver from power DeSoto. He holds offers from TCU, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Illinois, and K-State among others. Kingsbury needed this commit like a fat kid needs a Big Mac. Prospects are shying away from the perceived lame duck coach. Inroads into DeSoto don't hurt either.

Shamar Johnson - Wide Receiver 5-10, 165 North Richland Hills

Sonny Dykes hot recruiting start continues with Johnson and Roberson Jr. Johnson has offers from Texas Tech and some G5s. Johnson caught 31 passes, ten of which went for six. Nine routes. So many nine routes.

Roderick Roberson Jr. - Safety 6-0, 165 Royse City

Roberson is a two-star composite with a couple of offers. This dude is a banger. A classic box safety who drives through people - often taking their souls. Royse City plays in a pretty tough league with the likes of Ennis, Sulphur Springs, and Corsicana, so he'll have a chance to showcase his talent against some top competition.
