If last year's class wasn't good enough with Rivals100 member Michael Morgan and three-star safety Roderick Rollins, the Dallas (Texas) Skyline class is giving them a run in regards to competition for high level recruiting.
Just days ago the 6-foot, 185-pound speedy athlete Christian Scott had one offer from Baylor. That has changed seemingly overnight as now Texas A&M, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Florida State have joined the mix.
According to coach Derick Roberson, the Seminole coaching staff was by in the fall to check up on four-star Morgan before his official visit. That's when they had seen enough and said an offer was coming.

"I was asking Christian about favorites and stuff, but he has no clue," Roberson said. "I don't think he thought he was going to be as highly regarded as he has been already. He said, 'Coach, what do you think?'"
"I told him I can't tell you that. You've got to do what you want. He's enamored by the whole thing."
Big offensive lineman Terrael Williams has also picked up a written offer from Kansas State and a verbal offer from Oklahoma.
New head coach Ron Prince, who is obviously making Texas a priority, didn't stop at two. K-State offered a third prospect in fullback/linebacker Sinatra Wallace.
"They've got the new head coach and they sent a recruiter down here pretty quickly," Roberson said about Kansas State. "I didn't get a chance to meet him, but it's obvious that they liked all three kids because the offers came right after that."
In comparing such a solid 2006 class, Roberson says it's too early to start saying which one has the more talented players.
"I don't think it's better because I had Rollins, Lamonta Ward, Anthony Norice, and Morgan who were all Division I," Roberson said. "Right now I just have three. I'm going to have probably two more for sure, but they're just not getting the exposure yet."
Roberson says that the Skyline classes for 2008 and 2009 could definitely be the best with how it's looking now. That will all start with sophomore linebacker Spencer Reeves who already is 6-foot-2, 195 pounds.
Speaking of comparisons, the Skyline coach already puts Reeves with some pretty good company.
"He won't be as fast as Morgan, but he'll be a better linebacker," Roberson said about Reeves. "He's played the position longer where Morgan was new to it after moving from defensive end. Now, he is definitely fast at 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash."
"I don't even want to get into the 2009 class because there are so many guys that will really blow up for us."
