"I just got out of basketball, said Villarrubia. "We were young this year. We didn't have a senior class just like the rest of our sports, but we're looking real good right now."

Lakeshore just finished it's second year of existence after opening near Mandeville for the 2009-2010 school year.

Despite the program's infancy, college scouts have made their way over to see Villarrubia. "I've been hearing from Louisiana Tech, Nicholls State, and Tulane," he said. "Now the University of Washington abd Arizona are suppossed to come see me. My tape got to a coach at Texas and I'll be visiting them in late summer."

Villarrubia said he feel like Louisiana Tech and Nicholls State are both close to offering. The 6'5" offensive tackle feels like he can excell in a spread system.

"I think I'd fit great," explained Villarrubia. "We run a spread offense at my school now, even with the quick time in between plays like they do at Oregon."

Louisiana Tech Head Coach Sonny Dykes has said that he likes taller, leaner offensive tackles because they are typically more athletic. A 250 to 260 pound tackle can usually benefit from a redshirt year and they will put on the needed weight after working in the strength program. Former Bulldog Rob McGill is a great example of this style of player. Texas Tech, where Dykes was an assistant for several years, has been known to recruit this type of offensive tackle in the past.

Villarrubia said he enjoyed Louisiana Tech's junior day and plans to return this summer. "I definitely enjoyed it up there," he added. "They've got a great coaching staff. "I'm going to both the Louisiana Tech and Tulane camps this summer. I'll probably visit Washington, Washington State, Idaho, and Texas this summer too."
