    The kid is 6'6", 295 lb. This is his second yr on 5A varsity down here in Texas. He is getting some interest from schools like Ok St, Tulsa, LSU, Utah, Colorado St., and Oklahoma to name a few.

    Oddly enough, there was a guy in the grocery store about 2 months ago that was a Vols fan and told him the same thing.

    We are giong there for thier Jr. day on March 16th. He REALLY liked TCU, and if they would offer he would most likely go there. But Rice, is an excellent education. The recruiter said 90% of thier graduates have jobs waiting for them making 6 figures.

    A friend of mine went there for baseball, got decent grades, and now makes over 6 figures working for Citi Group as a commodities trader.

    Looks solid comes out low and moves his feet well, has good natural size as well.

    Is he making the rounds to College level summer camps this year? Thats where he will get seen more and possibly round up more offers.

    The summer between JR and SR seasons is huge for the recruiting portion of it...

    Living and playing where he is there are a ton of options and camps to be seen.

    Good luck and keep us updated.

    The plan is to get him to as many of their camps as possible. There are quite a few schools that will have camps in the DFW area that we can attend.

    Texas State still has a reputation as a top party school. Get his mind right and tell him to have fun running the Franbone offense!

    I never saw a bigger smile on that kids face once we were down there on the official visit and he went out with the fellas at night. He can't wait to get there.
