The best way to describe Texas in high school football is it’s rich in tradition and deep in talent.

Heading into the 2021 high school football season, the Lone Star State features the overall No. 1 college football prospect in the nation and 18 players in the Top 100 of the 247Sports Composite Rankings for the Class of 2022.

Southlake Carroll quarterback Quinn Ewers is the top-ranked player in the state and the country. Last year, he led the Dragons to a runner-up finish in Class 6A Division I. The Dragons finished No. 13 in the 2020-21 High School Football America 100 powered by NFL Play Football, the NFL’s initiative to provide fun and engaging experience for players of all ages and skill levels.

Ewers has given his verbal to Ohio State.

The ’22 class is filled with top-flight QB’s. Behind Ewers, is Bridgeland’s Conner Weigman, who is currently ranked as the No. 7 overall college football prospect in Texas. The Texas A&M-recruit is also an excellent baseball player.

In two years as the Bears starter, Weigman’s thrown for over 6,300 yards with 69 touchdowns. He’s also run for another over 1,300 yards and 16 scores.

Bridgeland finished No. 81 in the Top 100 last year. The Bears were 12-1, losing to Rockwall-Health in the 6A-II third round of the playoffs

At No. 14 is Cade Klubnik, who led Westlake to the 6A-I title in 2020. Last week, Klubnik won the Elite 11 quarterback competition MVP in Los Angeles.

Klubnik has given his verbal commitment to Clemson.

The top defensive recruit is North Shore’s Denver Harris. The 5-star cornerback is the No. 8 overall prospect in America. The 2020 District 21-6A Defensive Player of the Year has named his top four schools — Alabama, LSU, Texas and Texas A&M.

Speaking of defense, Duncanville is loaded with talent on D, led by defensive lineman Omari Abor, the No. 6 recruit in the state. The Panthers have three other defensive players in the Class of 2022 Top 100 — defensive lineman Quincy Wright (No. 78), linebacker Jordan Crook (No. 81) and safety Pierre Goree — plus junior safety Deldrick Madison, the No. 19 recruit in the Class of ’23.

Duncanville finished No. 14 in the High School Football America 100 last year after advancing to the 6A-I state semifinals.
