RECRUITING: OU has eye on sleeper WR prospect

Killeen, Texas WR Juaquin Iglesias talks about his game and schools who are close to offering.


Juaquin is somewhat of a sleeper, but he has impressed all the coaches that came by his high school this spring and he will go into his senior year with an excellent change to land a big offer.

This is an athlete that will need a good senior year to prove to those interested college coaches that he is worthy of that offer that they are close to offering, but have held off so far.

Igelsias goes into his senior year a three-year starter and last season he caught 44 passes for 780 yards and four touchdowns.

"I feel that I am a good possession receiver," said Iglesias. "I feel I am a physical receiver that can get things done over the middle. I am much better at going up and getting passes, and I feel that if a ball is thrown my way that I am going to come down with it."

Iglesias also returns punts and kicks and he will add free safety to his duties this year. Iglesias can bench 245 pounds, squats 405, and he also starts in hoops (15 ppg) and runs track (spring relay, 800-relay and mile-relay).

Iglesias went to the Texas Tech camp and he also took an unofficial visit with the Red Raiders following the camp. He is still looking for his first scholarship offer, but many schools have called and many are taking a look.

"I think that Texas Tech, Baylor, Arkansas and Notre Dame are showing me the most interest, "said Iglesias. "Tech says they are going to offer soon, but they want to see me in some early games. I expect Baylor to offer me soon as well. I love Oklahoma, but they have also told me that they want to see me play this year."

Iglesias is qualified.
