The game has changed. Players in space are the game-changers in the "new" game of football and Houston is loaded with them.
Alief Taylor's Shea Whiting, North Shore's Ajani Carter and FB Marshall's Korey King can gobble up large chunks of yardage after the catch and that's why they are so coveted by college scouts. And what about the hybrid tight end? That position has become uber-popular in today's game as Clear Lake's Asher Alberding is trying to get on the field at North Texas.
But make no mistake, the game is still won in the trenches. Gunderson, Irons, Dotson, Leon and Savoy are jumbo athletes who can control the line of scrimmage.

No. 71 Shea Whiting, Alief Taylor, WR, Boise State
Pretty physical WR at 6-foot-2. He looks to be going west to Boise State. Will get faster, but has great hands and can win the 50-50 balls.
No. 72 Ajani Carter, North Shore, WR, Utah State
Has played huge in spots. A great No. 2 on a team that has a National Recruit at No. 1. He can stretch the field and is great after the catch. Carter has the size to kill it at UTEP, they just have to hope to hold onto him.
No. 73 Korey King, FB Marshall, WR, Tulsa-commit (Colorado, Southern Miss)
Explosive receiver who can really run. Pretty powerful runner. Used a lot on jet sweet. Kick return talent. Get the ball in his hands and let him go.
No. 74 Asher Alberding, Clear Lake, TE, North Texas
Another great “fit” for coach Seth Littrell at North Texas. Alberding has great size at 6-foot-4, 230-pounds and didn’t get a ton of opportunities at Clear Lake. He has great upside and could move into an OL.
No. 75 Brock Gunderson, Cy Woods, OL, BYU
Gunderson is a road-grader in a run-oriented offense at Woods. He’s a good fit at BYU. At 6-foot-5, 295-pounds, he has solid leverage. He will redshirt and be a solid four-year guy for the Cougars.
No. 76 Gerald Irons, Klein Oak, DT, Army
The DT has a tremendous pedigree with his grandfather, father and uncles. Irons suffered a knee injury earlier this season. He has a high-motor and is a good fit for Army.
No. 77 Kenneth Dotson, Lamar, DE, North Texas
Solid defensive end prospect, who is hard-nosed. A smidge undersized by sometimes works to his advantage. North Texas is the right fit.
No. 78 Jevon Leon, Hastings, DT, Sam Houston
The District 23-6A Defensive MVP has been wrecking offenses for two seasons. At 6-foot-3, 250-pounds, Leon is explosive on the DL. He is getting high DII looks, but could trend upward to DI.
No. 79 Rayshawn James, Westfield, RB, Uncommitted
Versatile is the word to describe James. He was a UH commit but has changed his tune. Let’s see if it works out for the slashing back who can catch out of the backfield.
No. 80 Kasual Savoy, Hastings, DT, Uncommitted
The nose tackle has tremendous grades and at 6-foot, 290 pounds can get after the QB and RBs. Good hands on the DL and strong up top.
