Denton Ryan is one of the top teams in the state of Texas and the Raiders are simply loaded with prospects in the class of 2012. While names like Mario Edwards, Jordan Richmond and Alex De La Torre get most of the attention there are other players in the program with plenty of offers as well.
Recently, two-way standout Trey Mohair decided to make a commitment to an in-state school. The 5-foot-11, 180-poud athlete did so in person this past weekend.
"I committed to UTSA," Mohair said. "I did it on Saturday before their football game. I just went down there to see the game and I wanted to let the coaches know I was going to play there."

Mohair says a number of factors led him to choose a Roadrunner program currently in its first year of football.
"I really like the coaches there," he said. "I think it's a good opportunity to get in there while they're starting a new program. I wanted to get [my commitment] out of the way just so I can focus on my football season."
Since he made his pledge in person, Mohair was able to personally share the news with UTSA head coach Larry Coker.
"I had a chance to talk to coach Coker. He just smiled when I told him I was committing," Mohair said.
Mohair plays wide receiver and defensive back for Ryan and was being recruited at both positions by different schools. He says UTSA has the defensive side of the ball in mind for him.
"They want me to play safety and return punts," he said. "I like offense more but it really doesn't matter to me."
Mohair chose UTSA over offers from Air Force, Arkansas State, Central Arkansas, Louisiana Tech and North Texas.
