Wilson is the nation’s #3 senior recruit and #1 defensive tackle from Episcopal High School, in Bellaire. He has offers from the likes of Alabama, LSU, and Florida State, he is still undecided. He had 15 sacks as a sophomore and only improved his junior season.

Chaisson was an All-American as a junior defensive lineman last season at North Shore High, and makes the list again after a tremendous campaign leading his team to a 6A-D1 title. The 6-4, 211 pound senior runs an impressive 4.83, 40 yard dash. He has over 20 offers, but appears to have narrowed his search to OU, hometown Houston, LSU, or UT.
