Recruiting Tidbits (05/09)

The Wildcats have done well in recent years in Texas and they hope the 2007 class is no exception. Here are some new names and some old names from the Lone Star State and beyond.

We've heard the Cats have been looking at James Randez, a CB from San Antonio. The kid is a burner, he just ran a 10.2 100 at the state meet. No offer yet, but a guy to pay attention to.

Another player getting a look is Travis Lewis, a 213-pound RB of Lee High School in San Antonio. He is another speedster who just ran a 4.3 40 and is a bit of an unknown after missing more than half the season last year with a leg injury.

San Antonio Churchill has an intriguing prospect. 6-4, 230-pound tight end Ian Harris is going to get some looks. The Cats have not offered but they do have an in with Harris. Big brother is former Cat FB Gilbert Harris.

The Cats have offered QB Jarrett Lee of Brenham, TX. He's already got a ton of offers and the Cats are trying to join the mix for the talented signal caller. Last season he completed 233 of 347 passes, for 3,345 yards, 39 touchdowns and only seven picks. The Cats also seem to be interested in his teammate Justin Daniels, a 6-0 receiver with good speed.

Jeremy Kerley is an intriguing athlete from Hutto, TX. Kerley has played a number of positions but will either be a DB or WR in college. He appears to be another guy who will get a lot of evaluation over he next few months.

Expect the Cats to make a huge push at Jarvis Jones. The big OL from Rosenberg, TX has offers from all over the Big 12. We're hearing that the Cats like him a lot, but so do a number of other programs. Texas A&M leads at the moment, but Jones has set no timetable for a decision. He's big, athletic and has a lot of room to grow.

Although reports have varied, make no mistake that the Cats are very much in the picture with Kris O'Dowd. The Tucsonan has a lot of teams he is interested in, but the Cats are going to be in the mix.

There is some good news for the 2006 class. More and more it sounds as if the academic situation of WR signee Terrell Reece is going to be just fine. There were a few worries, but he's having a very productive semester and should have everything in order to enroll next season.

Rob Gronkowski continues to list the Wildcats. The talented tight end has announced that he will attend Maryland's camp and he has two brothers who play for the Terrapins, but we're hearing that the Cats will be a factor.
