The region has several high profile prospects in the class of 2008, but no star shines brighter than that of Arkansas commit Devin Thomas as the Madison running back is the No. 1 ranked prospect in TPI's postseason ranking of the Top 25 prospects in South Texas.
Despite missing the Mavericks playoff run after suffering an ankle injury in the middle of the season, Thomas was spectacular during the 2007 season rushing for 1,447 yards and 17 touchdowns while averaging a blistering 11.3 yards per carry.
LSU managed to pull two prospects out of the region, the most thus far of any college, with Kerrville Tivy linebacker Kyle Prater (No. 3) Smithson Valley offensive lineman Thomas Parsons (No. 4) both heading to Baton Rouge.
