6-3, 180
Position: Wide receiver
School: Tomball
Overview: Ranked the No. 2 player in Texas and No. 16 recruit nationally, Demas won’t play his senior year after being ruled ineligible by the University Interscholastic League following a transfer from North Forest. Still, Demas figures to have a bright future in college. He has committed to Texas A & M. 

Vernon Broughton

Josh White
