A rainy and cold weekend at Pylon 7v7 Dallas I on Feb. 10 and 11 saw multiple Texas football offers in action. We were on hand for the final set of games at Pylon 7v7 this weekend in DeSoto to see some of Texas's top targets in the 2025, 2026, and 2027 recruiting classes.

There were also some other touted recruits from the 2025 and 2026 classes that caught my attention during Bracket Play at Pylon Dallas this weekend.

Notes and top performers from Texas football targets at Pylon 7v7 Dallas

Here are some notes, nuggets, and standouts from the first weekend of Pylon 7v7 Dallas.

Keelon Russell, Duncanville QB

Four-star 2025 Duncanville quarterback and SMU Mustangs commit Keelon Russell was on point all weekend for GrandElite. Despite the muddy conditions, Russell was money with his throws to his multiple talented weapons at the skill positions.

While Russell was without his teammate and the elite five-star Duncanville wide receiver and LSU Tigers commit Dakorien Moore at Pylon Dallas this weekend, he didn't have any issues leading GrandElite. Russell showed off the beautiful deep ball that he's become known for with that special connection at Duncanville between him and Moore.

Russell also showed good anticipation and the ability to throw on the move and in bad conditions with the muddy fields in DFW this weekend.

Ethan "Boobie" Feaster, DeSoto WR

One of the top wide receivers early on in the 2027 recruiting class, DeSoto's Ethan "Boobie" Feaster" was on display for GrandElite at Pylon Dallas this weekend. While their high schools in South Dallas are rivals during the season, Feaster and Russell have a great connection for GrandElite in 7v7.

Feaster has the Longhorns high on his list among his top schools early in his recruitment. He told Orangebloods' Jason Suchomel at Pylon this weekend that he "loves what he's seen from Texas".

During both days of the action at Pylon 7v7 Dallas this weekend, Feaster was seen sporting a Longhorns' backpack.

Feaster has visited Texas many times since last offseason. Most recently, he visited Texas for the first big Junior Day of the offseason on Jan. 20.

Brock Boyd, Southlake Carroll WR

One of the wide receivers for GrandElite that caught my eye today among the top performers during bracket play was 2026 Southlake Carroll (TX) wideout Brock Boyd. The 6-foot-1 and 165-pound wideout from the DFW Metroplex displayed good hands, verticality, and polished route running this weekend.

Boyd caught multiple nice touchdown passes from Russell for GrandElite in pool and bracket play.

The rising junior Boyd is someone to watch among the potential breakout wide receivers in the Metroplex in the 2026 class this year. He holds a dozen offers, including the Oklahoma Sooners, TCU Horned Frogs, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Baylor Bears, and Houston Cougars.

Texas has not offered Boyd.

Zachery Turner, Duncanville ATH/TE

Among the next round of rising prospects from Duncanville High School is the highly touted 2026 athlete/tight end Zachery Turner. The 6-foot-3 and 215-pound rising junior Turner was another consistent pass-catcher for Russell and GrandElite at Pylon Dallas this weekend.

Turner has natural speed and athleticism that makes him a matchup nightmare against the majority of defenses he faces in high school for Duncanville's offense. Combine Turner's speed and agility at the tight end position with his large catch radius and strong hands and you get a special pass-catcher with the tools to be an elite passing game weapon at the collegiate level.

Texas is among the nearly 20 FBS schools that have offered Turner.

Carterrious Brown, Arlington (TX) Seguin WR

TDG unseated GrandElite as the reigning champs in the high school division at Pylon Dallas this weekend. Solid performances in the semifinal and final games this weekend that we saw from 2025 three-star Arlington (TX) Seguin wide receiver Carterrious Brown and 2025 Arlington (TX) Bowie wide receiver Dilan Tallie led TDG to the championship in DeSoto.

Brown holds multiple Power Five offers, including Texas, Baylor, and the Arizona State Sun Devils. He visited Texas for Junior Day in late January and has a good relationship with wide receivers coach Chris Jackson.

He's a wideout Texas is keeping an eye on in the 2025 class from DFW.
