DFW – This Thursday nights matchups are shaping up to be some exiting games to watch. We are highlighting some of the top games and recruits to keep your eyes on .Below you will find the top recruits for both teams and a little game preview of what to expect as completion and play is just heating up.

 

 

Lone Star Frisco (3-1) vs Reedy (2-3)

 

Game Preview:  Both teams coming into this matchup are stacked offensively at multiple positions. This should be an exciting offensive game to watch. Lone Star Frisco coming into the game off to a hot start to the season despite loosing QB Garrett Rangel, the the death in that quarterback room for Lone Star Frisco is deep with  junior QB Gabriel Barrientes stepping up for the star Rangel and looking impressive too. Look for Reedys offense to be strong one as well with playmakers all over the field, prospects are below.

 

Top Prospects :

Lone Star -Sr. QB – Garret Rangel (Questionable/Injury) ,  Jr. QB – Gabriel Barrientes , Sr. RB, WR – Boise State commit Ashton Jeanty , Sr. SS, WR -Northwestern commit Devin Turner

Reedy – Sr. QB – & Rice commit AJ Padgett , So. WR – AJ Jayroe , Jr. RB – Dennis Moody

 

 

 

Southlake Carroll (5-0) vs Keller (5-0)

 

Game Preview: The Southlake Carroll Dragons are off to a perfect start this season but so is Keller. Both teams heading into this matchup undefeated, but if I had to pick a under dog I would have to say its Keller. The dragons are just too stacked on both sides of the ball with DI talent, however that Keller defense & offense as well as look strong. This should be an exciting matchups as we have two gunslingers who can make some big plays happen with their guys. Quarterback Kaden Anderson is one of the top recruits in the nation right now to watch who is taking over for fromer starter & Ohio State Buckeye Quinn Ewers .  Anderson is easily looking like one of the breakout players of the year.

 

Top Prospects:

Southlake Carrol – Jr. QB, Kaden Anderson , Jr. RB Owen Allen , Sr. WR -South Carolina commit Landon Samson ,  Sr. TE – Boston College commit Rj Maryland , Sr. DE / LB Barrett Baker, Sr. LB Benecio Porras, Sr. DB Avyonne Jones

Keller – Jr. QB – Tre Guerra , Sr. Zac, O Day,

 

 

 

Lakeview Centennial (3-2) vs Garland (5-0)

 

Game Preview:  Garland’s offense is looking unstoppable this year is with one of the best reciever recruits in the nation Garlands wide reciever Jordan Hudson.  The areal attack has been on fire for the Owls and it will be interesting to see how if that Lakeview defense can stop them in this matchup. Lakeview isn’t looking bad on offense this season either, averaging over 40 points per game. It will be interesting to see which offense can find its rhythm and the momentum early on in this game.

 

Top Prospects:

Lakeview Centennial – Jr. WR,TE – Trey Wilson

Garland – Sr. WR SMU commit Jordan Hudson , Sr. QB Cergio Perez , Sr. WR – Charles Allen, Sr. FS/WR -SMU commit Chance Biddle, Sr. RB – Damerian Wigenton
