Three of the players on the cover committed to Power 5 schools in July. Broughton will join the Texas Longhorns, Alec Bryant will join the LSU Tigers and Chad Lindberg will join the Georgia Bulldogs.
Bryant recently sat down with ABC13 and said it is a huge accomplishment for himself and his teammates, adding it is an honor to represent his school.
With all of the attention that comes with being an LSU signee, Bryant said he handles all of it by being around his family and having a relationship with God.
Achane and Evans have not made a decision yet, but have multiple offers from Power 5 schools.
Matt Malatesta is the chief content officer of VYPE Media and said it can be difficult to decide who makes the cover of VYPE.
Malatesta said a lot goes into the decision, including coaches' recommendations and where the players stand in the recruitment circle.
"These are the who's who and household names of recruiting circles. Not just in Houston, but in the nation," Malatesta said, feeling that they got it right with this year's cover.
