From private schools to the IMG Academy to the state finalists, VYPE’s grouping from 61-70 has athletes from different walks of life.
Brant Banks of Westbury Christian is a giant and signed with Nebraska and coach Scott Frost out of the private school sector. The Huskers are on the come-up. Episcopal’s Corey Williams is athletic in space. Can he follow the home-run talent of his former teammate Jaylen Waddle hailing from the SPC?
Logan Compton has gone from Cy Ranch to IMG to Tomball. Weird path, but he’s off to Baylor.
There is a reason why Shadow Creek reached the state finals. Their defensive backfield is stingy with Jevin Murray and Kaymen St. Junious on patrol.

Check them out here...
No. 61 Brant Banks, Westbury Christian, OL, Nebraska
At 6-foot-7, 265-pounds, Nebraska is taking a shot on Banks coming out of the private school ranks. The key is, can Banks get up to 300-pounds to play in the Big 10? He’s got huge upside, but must get bigger, faster, stronger.
No. 62 Corey Williams, Episcopal, Athlete, Southern
Ok, so Jaylen Waddle had a huge year as a freshman at Alabama. Will Williams be an encore recruit for the Knights? Waddle went off with his speed and athleticism. Williams is somewhat similar.
No. 63 Shae Suiaunoa, Clear Lake, Athlete, Wyoming
Shae is an athlete at 6-foot-2. He played QB, but he is really a safety. Utah seems to be the leader right now and has traditionally done well in Houston. Seems like a great fit, but is he willing to change positions?
No. 64 Jackson Fort, College Park, OL, Tulane
College Park has had a make-over with the arrival of coach Lonnie Madison. The Cavs have hit the weight room and it’s showed. Fort was a piece of a huge line this season and has improved immensely over the past 18 months. Tulane is getting a bit of a sleeper.
No. 65 Logan Compton, Tomball, TE/DE, Baylor
Weird path from Cypress Ranch to IMG Academy to Tomball. If you can play, recruiters will find you. At 6-foot-4, 220-pounds, Compton has got to get bigger to get on the field for Baylor. He’s got the hands and athleticism to do it. Could move to DE.
No. 66 Jevin Murray, Shadow Creek, DB, North Texas
Good-sized corner who has played elite competition this season and through the playoffs. Another good get for North Texas. Has solid size at 5-foot-11. Can play in space.
No. 67 Garrison Johnson, Manvel, RB, Uncommitted (Syracuse)
Rushed for nearly 800 yards, sharing time with Ladarius Owens. A bit of a glider. Recently decommitted and will be checking out Syracuse in January. His former coach Kirk Martin is an assistant for the Orange.
No. 68 Bryton Thompson, Atascocita, DE, Uncommitted
Thompson was the District MVP and at 6-foot-2 has the size to play at the DI level. It looks like Texas Tech is the leader. The DE is 6-foot-2, 250-pounds and can run. He can be a solid college contributor, but he must pick a school so he doesn’t get caught in a pinch.
No. 69 King McGowen, Willis, OT, SMU
Great football name. King is raw and a second-teamer in a tough district. Must develop a mean streak and get his 6-foot-5, 275-pound frame stronger and bigger. Must have great feet for the offense he is moving into.
No. 70 Kaymen St. Junious, Shadow Creek, DB, Air Force
St. Junious is headed to Air Force and also has gained a ton of experience this season. Iron has sharpened iron at Shadow Creek and St. Junious rotates in one of the best backfields in the state.
