National rankings (Rivals 51; Scout 38).
Best in class: Shaun Nixon, rb, Lake Travis, Austin, Texas.
Best of the rest: Ty Barrett, ol, Dallas Skyline; qbs Foster Sawyer, Fort Worth, and Grayson Muehlstein, Decatur; wrs Corey McBride, Geismar, La., and Emanuel Porter, Dallas Lincoln.
Late addition: Nixon, a four-star recruit, had committed to Texas A&M before his surprise visit to TCU last weekend. Patterson called him a "guy who stood out who wanted to come to TCU. I don't think you ever turn down a great tailback."
One that got away: DE Jarrell Owens, who was also a running back at Palestine High, committed to the Frogs last summer. But the 6-3, 240-pounder switched to Oklahoma State after a visit to Stillwater last weekend and signed with the Cowboys on Wednesday.
NOTE: Ty Summers was a dual-threat All-District quarterback with 3,774 total yards and 47 touchdowns at San Antonio's Reagan High. Patterson recruited him to play linebacker, like he has done with other former high school QBs, including Jason Phillips, who is an NFL linebacker for Philadelphia. "A little bit going back to my old ways," Patterson said. "He ran with the ball more than he threw it. He's a very physical player."
