(Don't take into account team needs or anything else. Just lb. for lb. the best player at his respective position)
My money is on Kohl Stewart.
This kid has a rifle arm, fantastic accuracy and he is way more mobile than anyone gives him credit for. Unfortunately he has been over-extending himself playing two sports and that has taken away from his notoriety this past season. He has missed a couple of camps and all star games secondary to over-working himself but don't be fooled, Stewart is an elite prospect.
I watched a full game in his nationally televised match-up against RSJ and Sealy earlier last year. Stewart played his best when the lights were the brightest putting up 223 in the air for 3 TDs and 106 on the ground on only 10 rushes. Ricky is no QB but Kohl stole the show that night before RSJ's injury sidelined him for the night.
Everyone is convinced he goes to the MLB but I think the legacy aspect wins out. He has wanted to go play QB at A&M for as long as he can remember. While Johnny's success has spurned Kenny Hill, I think it has had the opposite effect on Kohl Stewart making him even more eager to immediately compete for the starting job.
Not many kids have offers to play QB at Florida and Notre Dame these days. And he'd have even more if he would entertain a few phone calls.
Sit back and enjoy our best commit:
Kohl Stewart c/o2013 St. Pius X HS in Houston, TX.
Noel Ellis. Underrated playmaker who will help to solidify our defense by allowing Everett to move to FS. Our secondary situation is looking much improved for the future with De. Harris, Garner and Ellis (w/ Sezer under development).
“Honestly [tu's offer] doesn’t really matter though because I won’t go there. I won’t even visit." “I want to play big time ball in the SEC"
To answer the question:
As far as best "High school" prospect. I'll go with Kohl. By that, I mean the prospect that's coming in as the best player when he sets foot on campus.
As far as "Will make the biggest impression early on." Derrick Griffin. He's a better receiver than RSJ right now, I think, at least fundamentally. He's just a huge mismatch waiting to happen. If he makes it in, he'll be awesome for us early. If he can work hard and keep up the effort, he could do great things.
If Griffin doesn't make it, then I'll go with Jaquay. Yes, even over RSJ. RSJ is a great athlete for mismatches but Jaquay has hands and speed that are going to be just deadly early on.
For "Biggest impression over career" RSJ. He's got a lot of upside, but he needs more development than some of our other guys right now. He's such an athlete and a mismatch that I think he starts from day one, but I think his true potential will be unlocked his sophomore/jr years.
For "Most likely to get a high draft pick" my money is on RSJ. If he learns to block and use that body, he's going to be very NFL ready by his senior year. Next would be probably either Tony Stevens or Jaquay, whichever can work on their burner speed quicker.

It's Golden and it really isn't close.
Win we shall, yes we can, yes we will.
Switch Stewart and Hill's high schools and that on the field production you value so much also flip flops!
I agree with the OP, Kohl Stewart is the best prospect we have committed currently.
Kohl Stewart is going to play baseball... Which is why our coaches are selling Kenny Hill as being the back up to Manziel.
Stewart's name almost never comes up, bc the coaches know he's not going to play college football.
Proverbs 10:4 (NIV)
Lazy hands make for poverty,
but diligent hands bring wealth.
oh really? So playing significantly tougher competition would increase Kohl's numbers? If he's that good then why doesn't he absolutely dominate private school ball? Cause that's what Kenny does, except he does it in 5A DFW, which is arguably the toughest competition in the nation. They both run pass happy offenses, but Hill just plays a whole lot better competition. Passing wise they put up similar numbers (Hill commits fewer turnovers and has a better completion rate), but Hill is also extremely productive on the ground. You could say they're on par with each other passing wise, but when you add in Hill's running ability the comparison isn't close. The only thing Kohl has on Kenny is height and arm strength. That's it. Some of you suffer from what I like to call "Uncle Rico Syndrome". Well I don't care if Kohl can throw it over them there mountains, I'll take the guy who is going to get the job done. I'm taking Kenny Football.
