It may be Taniguchi, since he never really said "No." to when Kyon asked if he was an ESPer.
He didn't even give a straight answer. Just "You've got the Suzumiya bug. (english dub)"
Hell, didn't they also go out for like, 5 minutes? And he and Kunikida are always around for something ocassionly.

Better him than Kunikida, who has no backround whatsoever.

Well I'd imagine they wouldn't want to have to many of their Espers tied up in school in the event of closed space.

I highly doubt that all 10-ish espers are between 15 and 18. Heck, Koizumi might be the only one that is. If there were another esper at North High, I'd expect that person to be a teacher, not a student.

Anime-wise we can only confirm four espers existing...since we see four red glowing ball in closed space. In Haruhi-chan there are at least five espers...for their "power rangers-ish" group Haruhi follows. (With Itsuki as the actual "red ranger type".) Actually given Arakawa and Mori's rolls in the Haruhi-chan mall show version, it seems more like a takeoff of Sailor Moon. (Which perhaps ironically fits one of the abridged parody versions perfectly)

My bet is that Mori is one of the espers, since we know her full name (meaning there's something "special" about her) and Arakawa is not (for the inverse reason).
Spoiler for Volume 7:

It is possible I suppose

And while the Haruhi-chan episode has Arakawa as "Beard Mask", the Abridged version of Kyon has admitted that he himself is "Tuxedo Mask"....*facepalm*

There is no comparison between Kojirou and the FABULOUS Itsuki!

The Tamaru brothers are also likely to be espers as well, since their full names are also known. That seems to be the convention with the series. Anyone with powers has a full name, while side characters that are human only have one. Kyon (and anyone related to him) remains nameless. I wonder if a power scale could be determined based on how much of someones name is revealed...nah...

Haruhi: Behold, my minions! I have found a new soldier for the SOS Brigade. I give you...ah...what was your name again?
New Guy: Shimmen Inafune Ichijouji Kuroma Otori Gonnosuke. Pleased to meet you.
Kyon: Ohshi--

Alternately... that was simply done to tell them apart. They're pretty much exclusively referred to by their given names, after all.

... While hilarious... I really can't recall any instances of a Japanese name having more than just a given name and a surname. Go with a foreign exchange student that has a name for every letter of the alphabet.

I was going to, but they already have Koizumi as an exchange student of a sort. So the next aberration that struck me was someone whose name alone is a thing unheard of. Haruhi is just that amazing. She can speak Russian. In French.

Edit for Boredom:

New Guy: I am Alejandro Beliz Castilliano Del Eclessias Felizes Gallo Hidalgo Imperiosa Juarez Los Mares Nueves Ores Pimienta Queso Rey Sucre Taco Umberto Vega Xavier y Zorro. Pleased to meet you.
Kyon (Internal Narrative): In trying to write half of that, I have easily tripled the effort I've put into taking notes during Okabe-sensei's lectures.



(Not an actual sensible name, mind, and I didn't include the letters for which there are no true Spanish words beginning with them as opposed to borrowings.)
