Roos first BCS offer is in

Celina (TX) junior offensive tackle Jordan Roos has picked up his first BCS offer, and it's from a Big Ten school.

Celina (TX) junior offensive tackle Jordan Roos was pretty excited on Monday night. It's understandable why. The 2012 standout picked up his first BCS offer and it was from a Big Ten school.

"Today Purdue offered me to play football," said Roos, who is also a Division 1 Track prospect. "It was my first BCS offer, so I'm really hoping that this gets my recruitment going. I could see myself in the Big Ten. It was a big deal to me that Purdue offered."

Roos also had an offer from South Alabama and has picked up an offer in track from Missouri. The Texas high school football product has seen an assortment of coaches comes through the small 3A town in recent weeks to watch spring practices.

"The coach from Arkansas was at my school today and the Kansas coach has been here. He told me they are ver close to offering me as well," said Roos. "Army and Navy were here today as well. Colorado has stopped by and also Texas Tech."

For the second straight year, Roos won the Class 3A state title in the shot put, with a throw of 60'10. His personal best of 64'1 leads the state, regardless of class.

"Missouri told me that if football didn't work out, I would have a full ride for track," said Roos. "To be honest, I would say that I'm just as good in track or better than I am in football. But, I haven't really gotten many offers."

Roos plans to make camps this summer, but has not decided where he is headed. A sit down with his parents in the coming weeks should clear that up.

In February, Big Red Report talked with the junior about his interest from Nebraska. Where do the Huskers stand on him now?

"They send me a lot of letters every week, but Nebraska has never come down to the school," said Roos. "There are coaches here everyday, but I haven't seen any from Nebraska."

The 6-foot-5, 300 pound junior will go down as an eventual four-year starter at Celina.
