For HS football, I'd put Texas as the #2 state in the country behind Florida, and Georgia as the #4 state behind California. Not sure how the education levels are.

Texas is uber-competitive in most areas in terms of high school football and almost a religion in terms of generational commitment. I would also be concerned with the transplant perspective given it's seen as a birthright there and fitting in might never be an option. I would recommend Georgia as it has the quality minus the super intense involvement, except perhaps in the more rural areas.

This is something to really consider, as he may become lost in the shuffle given how competitive it is to just make the team at many of the schools in both states.
