DB Spring Risers in Texas

San Antonio Roosevelt S Arrion Springs

FOX Sports NEXT takes a look at a few players in the state of Texas who have started to see some movement in the recruiting process. In fact, we estimate that this spring even more interest, and offers will come their way. Check out the players we think will keep college coaches coming to their school in heavy rotation. Today we look at the secondary guys.

CB Nehemiah Wagner (6-0, 170 – Mesquite (TX) Horn
Oklahoma State and Kansas are looking, but Tulsa was the first and only to offer to date. It's only a matter of time before the converted cornerback make an impression on the coaches who come by Horn. Wagner should pull in a few more offers before the conclusion of spring football.

S Arrion Springs (6-1, 190) – San Antonio (TX) Roosevelt
In a year loaded with defensive back talent in the Lone Star, it is a player like Springs who may be overlooked to a degree. But there's no doubt that he belongs amongst the state's best. Texas Tech has already stepped up with an offer, but know that there are many more to follow back once coaches get out to San Antonio and see Springs' versatility. 

S Josh Kalu (6-2, 180) – Houston (TX) Alief Taylor
SMU was first, followed by Colorado. Looking forward, it will be no surprise at all if Kalu has more than a few more offers in hand during spring football. Taylor has become a factory-producing football talent warehouse. And the coaches know this. 

CB Dominique Barnett (6-2, 175) – Houston (TX) Alief Elsik
He played on a defense that was quite salty and he was pretty solid as well, but Barnett has not seen much movement at all in his recruitment. According to those close to him, only Missouri has reached out to make contact. He will have to show his skills during spring and have a great camp season. When all of that comes together, Barnett should end up with a few offers.
