Stemming from a terrific story by Bleacher Report featured columnist Sanjay Kirpalani, 3-star quarterback Desmon White is the face and motivation for this entire list.
Standing just 5'6", he weighs less than 150 pounds. But he shredded defenses in Texas during his career at DeSoto High School.
He finished with more than 8,000 passing yards and 80 career touchdowns while also rushing for 3,847 yards and 40 touchdowns on the ground, per 247Sports. DeSoto is one of the nation's top programs, competing in the 5A class in Texas, so it's not like White put up those numbers versus shaky competition.
He's taken home a 5A MVP and Offensive Player of the Year award in the past two seasons, according to 247Sports.
He didn't receive much interest from college coaches early on, but North Texas and TCU finally recognized his talent and offered in October. White is now committed to TCU, where his determination and athleticism should help the Horned Frogs in their quest to win the Big 12.
Claude Mathis, White's head coach at DeSoto, told Kirpalani in January 2014: "When you turn on the film with your staff and coaches and finally evaluate this kid, he’s a no-brainer."
