After attending several camps, hosting two massive media days, watching hours of film and talking with college scouts, VYPE launches its Top 100 players in Greater Houston. The first 75 are from the Class of 2023, the next 15 hail from the Class of 2024 and the final 10 are the underclassmen to watch.
The Class of 2023 is loaded with defensive line talent. The game is won in the trenches, right? Two of the nation’s top QBs headline the Class of 2024, while Class of 2025 is loaded with hybrid athletes.
