Expert opinion

“Alexander is a very strong presence in the middle of the defensive line. He is tough to knock off the ball, and he can clog a gap and close the pocket. His strength and his power are two of his biggest strengths.”

Enrolled: Jan. 25

247Sports position rank: 37

247Sports composite rating: Four stars

THE RESUME

Caught 46 passes for 748 yards and 14 touchdowns during his two seasons of varsity play at West Mesquite.

COACHSPEAK

“Dee has an exceptional worth ethic and a great attitude,” DeSoto coach Todd Peterman said. “There’s just not many 6-foot-5, 200-pound kids that have the body control in the air that he has. He can go fetch the ball and go up in awkward positions and catch it. His hands are also just phenomenal.”

DeSoto’s Todd Peterman

Expert opinion

“He has a real passion for blocking and will secure blocks until the whistle blows. But just because he is a good blocker does not take anything away from his abilities as a pass catcher. He is a deep vertical threat who will climb the ladder and out-muscle defensive backs for the deep ball.”

COACHSPEAK

“His athletic ability is obvious. He’s a guy who’s 6-foot-7, 310 pounds, who can move his feet. More importantly, they are getting a good person.”

Curtis coach J.T. Curtis

Expert opinion

“He’s a big kid but has an undeveloped body,” ESPN’s Craig Haubert told USA Today. “He’s got a lot of room to grow physically and has everything you would want in a tackle but lacks experience. I don’t see ... where he can play right away, but in three or four years, he will have everything you want in an elite college tackle.”

“They are getting a phenomenal student-athlete. He is a hard worker and a great kid.”

Karr’s Brice Brown

Expert opinion

“Anthony should flourish under new defensive coordinator Dave Aranda with his ability to get the edge and use his speed to get to the quarterback. Once he adds some more weight to his frame and gets stronger to play in the trenches with his hand in the dirt, Anthony’s ceiling is as high as any defensive lineman in this class.”

Ponchatoula’s Hank Tierney

Expert opinion

“Campbell is one of the more physical interior linemen in the country. He is a mauler who is at his best when he is coming off the ball and being the aggressor. He is projected as a guard or a center for the Tigers and will bring a nasty streak to the offensive interior.”

COACHSPEAK

“They are getting a great player. Obviously when you are getting recruited by those type of schools, everyone thinks you’re a great player. He is a hard worker. What’s impressive is he’s 300 pounds, but he is skinny. That’s impressive about his body type. He’s a long, lean kid and plays with tremendous technique.”

Destrehan’s Stephen Robichaux

Expert opinion

“He could play a 5-tech when Dave Aranda goes with three down linemen, and he could also slide inside when he lines up in a 4-3 base. Logan will have to adjust his motor to the next level.”

THE RESUME

He has a fast first step and beats offensive linemen with his all-around quickness. Shows good closing speed and agility.

St. Augustine’s Al Jones

Expert opinion

“Brings versatility to Steve Ensminger’s group that he hasn’t had with a signee under his watch. After serving as the lead blocker for Leonard Fournette as a sophomore, he settled into his tight end position nicely. He has shown that he can provide what Les Miles wants as an in-line blocker, as well as flexing out and creating some mismatches with his height. Pettigrew catches the ball well and can stretch the field to give the Tiger quarterbacks another option when working the middle of the field.”
