1. TEXAS 

Ja’Tavion Sanders (Sam Spiegelman)

Jumbo athlete Ja’Tavion Sanders is a five-star prospect who can play defensive end or tight end, and he alone gives Texas the edge here. He’s simply an athletic freak.

Seven McGee

The Ducks have a few great, athletic players in this class who could play different positions. Seven McGee could play receiver or running back, Jabril McNeill is a huge kid and Darren Bankins can play either side of the ball.
