Posted March 6th, 2019

The Dallas-Fort Worth area played host to two elite camps on consecutive weekends. The first took place Feb. 24 when Under Armour hosted a regional at Arlington Martin. The Opening came through Frisco for the first of two in-state regional camps in March. Many of the attendees were at both camps and a handful of Texas targets stood out in the crowd of top-level competition.

Here are scouting reports on five UT targets plus the three commitments that were at The Opening regional on Sunday:

Prince Dorbah, defensive end, Highland Park

Dorbah spent the past few months helping Highland Park make a run in the state basketball playoffs. He took two weekends off to prove he’s among the top pass rushing specialists in the 2020 cycle. Dorbah measured at 6-2, which is concerning for an edge rusher. Still, there wasn’t an offensive linemen who consistently stopped him in consecutive weeks of dominance. Texas is in great shape with Dorbah. He’d play B-Backer for the Longhorns.

Tommy Brockermeyer, offensive tackle, Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal (2021)

The Brockermeyer name is familiar to Texas fans. Blake Brockermeyer was a fantastic offensive lineman for the Longhorns and went on to enjoy a career in the NFL. His son, Tommy, might be the front-runner for the top spot in Texas for the 2021 cycle. His 6-6 frame and quick footwork were on display in back-to-back weeks. Tommy showed up to The Opening regional in Texas shorts.  

Ty Jordan, running back, West Mesquite

Jordan is built for camps. His quickness is impossible to contain in 1-on-1 situations and he made linebackers and safeties look silly in drills for two consecutive camps. He was named the running back MVP of The Opening regional in Dallas. He’s an all-purpose back who can play running back or wide receiver. Texas is high on his list.

Jalen Kimber, cornerback, Mansfield Timberview  

Kimber spent Saturday on Texas’ campus and Sunday claiming the fastest man at the camp award after posting a laser-timed 4.43. He was impressive in coverage at The Opening regional, coming away with a couple of interceptions. His athletic prowess is unmatched at the cornerback position inside the state and he’s a clear priority for assistant coach Jason Washington.

Ryan Watts, cornerback, Little Elm

Watts looks like a safety and runs like a cornerback. He’s still figuring out how to truly play the position instead of simply relying on his athleticism, but there’s no doubt that the tools to succeed as a cover corner or a free safety exist. Texas is in great position after hosting him on junior day. Texas loves long, physical corners with freakish athleticism and Watts checks each of those boxes.

Hudson Card, quarterback, Lake Travis (committed)

Card was among three quarterbacks at the regional to earn an invite to the Elite 11 Finals this summer. He’s a true dual-threat quarterback, but these camps are only designed to work on the passing game. Card looked great throwing the ball. The positive progression as a thrower from this time last year was noticeable. The four-star might be the best quarterback in the state and is busy helping the Longhorns recruit others.

Logan Parr, guard, San Antonio O’Connor (committed)

Parr made the drive to Dallas for the regional and had an up-and-down day in drills. Offensive linemen are at a disadvantage at these camps because of the lack of pads or threat or run blocking. That’s especially true for interior line prospects like Parr. He’s a big, athletic prospect who barely carries any bad weight.

Jake Majors, guard, Prosper

Majors plays offensive tackle in high school and he’s being viewed as a possible center candidate in college. He and Parr say they both plan to cross-train at guard and center under Herb Hand. Majors, much like Parr, won and lost battles at the elite camps over the past two weekends.
