The Inside Texas Top 100: Nos. 91-100

The Inside Texas Top 100 for 2013 is finally done, but rather than drop it all at once we’ll disperse the information in a more processor freindly 10 slot increments. A new 10 will be released each day with analysis of every player on the list.
Thanks to the Highwayman who provided a lot of useful input to this undertaking.

100. LB Isaiah Williams, Skyline (Dallas) 6’2″ 220

Offers: Colorado, Kansas St., SMU

Williams isn’t as athletically gifted as some of his preceding Skyline bretheren, but he does have a nose for the ball and good lateral quickness which allows him to play the run tough.

99. QB/ATH Greg Ward, John Tyler (Tyler) 5’11” 170

Offers: Memphis, Rice

Though his heart is at quarterback, Ward will likely move to another position in college unless he finds a niche offense. It’s too bad because the record breaking signal caller has real passing ability.

98. ATH Buck Wilson, Commerce (Commerce) 5’10” 165

Offers: still waiting of first one

To say Wilson plays fast is an understatement. A good analog for him athletically is Jacorey Warrick, though I think Wilson’s highest ceiling is in the defensive back field.

97. S Alfred Pullom, Cypress Woods (Cypress) 6’1″ 185

Offers: Still waiting on first one

The teammate of Texas signee Deoundrei Davis, Pullom combines excellent size with willingness to engage in the running game. Has solid range in the passing game to boot.

96. LB Jonathon London, Chavez (Houston) 6′ 230

Offers: still waiting on first one

Unknown because of sitting out his junior year due to transfer rules, London is going to make some noise in Houston next year. He’s a downhill ball of anger that has surprising athleticism in the passing game.

95. CB Jalen Barnes, Memorial (Port Arthur) 5’11” 180

Offers: still waiting on first one

Still under the radar despite Memorial’s run to the state semifinals, I look for Barnes’ stock to rise during spring evaluations. He has a nice mix of size and speed.

94. DE Tyus Bowser, John Tyler (Tyler) 6’2″ 210

Offers: still waiting on first one

To this point, Bowser’s been a victim of his size limitations but I think he can find a role a productive role as an OLB in a 3-4.

93. LB Chrishard Buhl, Midway (Waco) 6’2″ 195

Offers: waiting on first one

Buhl was instrumental in Midway’s state championship run that fell just short to Lake Travis. He’s a bit undersized but could blossom and have a breakout senior season.

92. DT Jacobi Hunter, Cypress Falls (Cypress) 6′ 300

Offers: Baylor

Hunter is built like a point of attack run plugger but has suprising quickness for his size to penetrate the backfield. Don’t let his size fool you, this is a powerfully built kid with a lot of muscle.

91. OL Alex Mayes, Van Alstyne (Van Alstyne) 6’5″ 275

Offers: Colorado, Kansas St., Kansas, Minnesota, UCONN

Currently holding offers from confrence mates Kansas St. and Kansas, Mayes is poised for more because of his great frame and good quickness. Watch next year for his 6’6″ 330 lb “little” brother, Connor.

Look for these lists to drop daily culminating with my number one player in the state for 2013.
