When the University of Arkansas clashes with Texas A&M in the Southwest Classic in the Lone Star state on Saturday night, it will no doubt have the attention of its two Texas commits in the 2010 class.
Point Pilot offensive lineman Cam Feldt (6-4, 290), who has led his team to a 5-0 mark and a number six state ranking, has a bye this weekend.
But after missing the last two games with an injury, Cedar Hill kicker Eduardo Camara is expected to be back in action Friday night when his Longhorns (4-0) travel to South Grand Prairie.
"We are number one in the state and number six in the nation (in the PrepNation.com poll)," Camara said. "We are just trying to win another state title."
Before his injury in the second game of the season, Camara had made his only field goal attempt and had four touchbacks on his five kickoffs for a team that is No. 11 in the USA Today poll.
Camara also had dropped two of his six punts inside the 20 while averaging 33 a boot and drilled all eight of his PATs.
"I'm ready to get back and help our team out," Camara said.
Cedar Hill rallied from a 28-7-point deficit after the first quarter to beat DeSoto 44-41 in its opener that was televised nationally on ESPN.
"DeSoto is a good team," Camara said. "When ever we played them in our state championship game, they did the same thing to us. They had us down 30 points and we came back and won. We weren't scared at all. We started slow, but we came out and played Cedar Hill football after that."

Feldt is enjoying the start to his 2009 season with his team's latest victory being a 56-13 drubbing of Childress last week.
"The season is going really good for us," Feldt said. "It is looking real good for us. We have a real good productive offense and one of the best running backs in the state in any classification and a defense that is getting it done every week."
Feldt, who like Camara was in Fayetteville on an unofficial visit for the Arkansas-Georgia game, is pleased with his individual effort.
"Individually I feel like I have picked up where I left off last year," Feldt said. "I have just jumped right back into the swing of things and am getting it done up front."
While Feldt has been a Razorback commitment for over a year now, that hasn't stopped other schools for continuing to pursue him.
"I am very solid to Arkansas," said Feldt, who is coached by his dad Blake. "I am not going to go anywhere else."
