After prospects like Christian Scott leave Dallas (Texas) Skyline, there certainly shouldn't be a drop off at the school. In fact, their first junior grabbed an offer.
A junior varsity player as a sophomore, defensive end Alfred Dupree came out of nowhere as a varsity starter. Along with linebacker Spencer Reeves and cornerback Keanon Cooper, it's a loaded group. Dupreee, however, has struck first with an offer.
"Alfred got offered by Oklahoma and he's the only junior so far," Skyline coach Derick Roberson said. "Actually, when Oklahoma came through in the spring, they said they liked him and had to watch his film. Defensive ends coach Chris Wilson was by again and told us that he had been approved for the offer."

Dupree may be a weakside defensive end, but he's getting time at linebacker.
"He's a tall, rangy guy with long arms, long legs, good build, and he can play that spot," Roberson said. "He's going to be an outstanding player. Last year he played junior varsity and this is his first time playing defensive end. It's going to be big for him."
Reeves and Cooper are getting plenty of interest themselves. Florida and Texas have both been sending them a ton of mail according to Roberson. Florida State has sent Reeves quite a bit as well.
The four-star Scott is starting to talk about his possible official visits. Roberson says that he'll most likely visit Oklahoma, LSU, and Florida State for sure. Texas and Texas A&M will most likely round out his five trips.
"After this past weekend and all the teams losing, he doesn't know what he's going to do," Roberson said with a laugh. "No, in all honesty he doesn't care about that with wins and losses He's just trying to find time to visit. We just don't have a by week right now and play every Friday. It's hard for him to get out."
