Var'Keyes Gumms is New Orleans born and bred.
The West Bank-native happened to land at Dekaney High School a few years back, who is led by Baton Rouge-native coach Anthony Williams.
"There was a lot going on in New Orleans and moving to Houston was just a better opportunity," Gumms said. "Playing for Coach Williams reminds me of home. He's a Louisiana guy who just understands."
As the early signing day for the Class of 2020 comes to a close, it's time to take off the wraps of VYPE's Fab 40 for the Class of 2021.
It's the year of the offensive line in Houston. Eleven of the Top 40 prospects are bigs, who are coveted by college programs across the country.
Our No 1 prospect is Foster WR Cody Jackson. He has the size, speed and skill to become the next CeeDee Lamb (also from Foster). He's probably tired of hearing that comparison, but that is good company to be in.
North Shore super QB Dematrius Davis comes in at No. 1 after he completely dominated with his arm and legs in 2019. He's committed to Virginia Tech – let's see if the Hokies can hang on to him.
Check out the VYPE 1.0 Class of 2021 as the rankings will be updated and added to after Spring Football.
