    Six high school football players have been named to the prestigous 2010 Parade All-America High School Football Team.

    Tops on the list is Plano West's Jackson Jeffcoat, son of former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Jim Jeffcoat.  Jeffcoat is  so far uncommitted, but is expected to make his collegiate decision on Sunday.

    On offense will be Denton Ryan quarterback Scotty Young, who is holding to his committment to lead the Texas Tech offense even in light of head coach Mike Leach's departure.  Young is joined by a duo of wide-receiving Darius' in DeSoto's Darius Terrell and Fort Worth Dunbar's Darius White.

    The two Darius' are headed to play football for Mack Brown and the Texas Longhorns in the fall.

    On the defensive side of the ball, Denton Guyer DT Taylor Bible and Skyline LB Corey Nelson join Jeffcoat. 

    "I didn’t know much about the Parade thing before today," Bible told the Denton Record Chronicle Tuesday. "I walked into school and teachers were congratulating me. … It probably is the highest honor I’ve gotten so far. This is just the beginning of a hopefully long, amazing career that I have ahead of me."

    Bible is headed to Texas also while Nelson is moving to College Station to play for the Aggies.

    In all, nine high school athletes from Texas made the Parade list.  Those outside of the DFW area are Cayuga High RB Traylon Shead (Texas), Elkins DL Jake Matthews (Texas A&M) and Katy's Shep Klinkle (Texas A&M).

    So far, Texas colleges have only signed the nine recruits listed above and none from out of state.
