Demeco Roland Defensive Tackle, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

Seth Littrell's ties to Oklahoma continue to pay off in players as Roland, a 6-3, 270 pound defensive tackles from Broken Arrow commits to the Mean Green. Roland has offers from Tulsa, SFA, and ACU along with a few others. He's got nice get-off and strength. Plays a bit high and he's a classic 1 gap defensive lineman.

Warren Walls - Defensive End, Bishop Lynch

SMU traveled seven miles east to Bishop Lynch to pick up the commitment of Warren Walls, a 6-4, 220 pound defensive end. Walls holds offers from Air Force, Wyoming, and San Diego State. Walls is pretty raw technique wise and plays tackle in Lynch's defensive scheme. Good athleticism and this guy goes hard, constantly hunting the ball.

Erick Young - Cornerback, Fort Bend Bush

Four-Star corner Young is a big time ballhawk from just off Grand Parkway. At 6-0 and over 200 pounds he has ideal corner size and plays to his weight with a physical edge rarely seen at corner. Bama, USC, LSU, Oklahoma, and just about everyone else is on Young, but the Aggies came out on top. 

Bobby Wolfe - Cornerback, Houston Madison

A Marlin is heading to College Station. Wolfe committed earlier in 2018, decommitted and now he's back in the Aggie fold. He's a consensus four-star recruit with offers from Texas, Ole Miss, Georgia, Florida, and a bunch of others. He's another big, strong cover man who is a heat seeker against the run. He goes by Hollywood which we are fully in favor of.

Colt Ellison - Defensive End, Aledo

Ellison plays at juggernaut Aledo, where winning state titles has become a birthright in the last decade. He's a three-star with offers from Notre Dame, Arkansas, Baylor, Tennessee, Texas Tech, and a slew of others. Even carpetbagger P.J. Fleck threw him an offer. Row this P.J. Ellison made thirteen sacks for the Bearcats last season, he's 6-4, 230 pounds. High motor dude who's a very good athlete. Explosive first step.

Andrew Henry - Runningback, Allen

Everett Withers picked up a big-time player in Henry, who plays for Texas High School Football royalty in Allen. He checks in at 5-10, 194 and he's a one cut, direct back. Not a lot of wasted movement by Henry. Now are there red flags with Henry? Sure, Allen will be his third school in three years after spending his sophomore season at Frisco Heritage and junior year at The Episcopal School. He'll have a chance to feature at Allen which could see his stock rise.
