Even though private schools in the state of Texas do not usually have nearly as much talent as their public counterparts, Fort Worth All Saints looks to be a big exception. The classes of 2013 and 2014 at the school are loaded with prospects.
The headliner looks to be class of 2014 offensive tackle Demetrius Knox. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound sophomore has piqued the interests of a lot of schools and on Wednesday he received his first early offer.
"I was offered by Texas A&M," Knox said. "They contacted my coach and my coach told me. It definitely surprised me and it made my day for sure."

Knox plans to visit College Station in the near future.
"I've been down there once before," he said of A&M, "but I never really go to talk to any coaches or anything. I'm planning to visit down there again around in May though. I'm just going to go and hang out and check out the environment around mid-May or so."
In addition to the Aggies several other programs are showing interest in Knox as well.
"Oklahoma wants me to come up for their spring game," he said. "Texas wanted me to come down to their spring game too. Texas Tech is looking at me and so is Oklahoma State."
Though it is still very early in the process Knox does admit that one school stands out to him.
"I was born and raised in Ohio so I've always been a fan of Ohio State," he said. "The No. 1 school on my list right now, though, is Texas.
"I've been researching their program and their academics. I feel like they can help me reach my goal of the NFL. If not that I would have a great backup plan in computer engineering."
