One School Standing Out To Villalobos

Anthony Villalobos currently has four offers on the table and says one particular school has started to stand out.

Keller (TX) Fossil Ridge defensive end Anthony Villalobos can temporarily put his recruitment on hold as he and his teammates go through spring drills. Rated as the nation's No. 74 defensive end prospect by FOX Sports NEXT, the 6-foot-3, 250-pounder has a few options to choose from with offers from SMU, North Texas, Minnesota and Tulsa.

But as previously mentioned, the three-star is putting his focus toward his team's workouts as they look to improve on last year's disappointing season when they had a rare absence from the post-season.

"We've made some big improvements already," he said. "Right now we're talking about all of us being committed to the team. We want to go to the playoffs, but we want to go deep in the playoffs."

Villalobos can't get too far from recruiting though as several schools have already stopped by his high school to get an up close look of he and his teammates.

"Kansas State, Baylor and Texas A&M have all come by," Villalobos said.

TCU has shown strong interest in Villalobos and even invited him to one of their first junior days. Villalobos still communicates often with his TCU recruiter, Dan Sharp.

"They're still talking to me," he said of TCU. "He (Sharp) wants me to work hard and get a little bigger; that's about it."

With four offers on the table and others soon to be on the way, one school has started to stand out according to Villalobos.

"Well, right now of the team's talking to me it's K-State," Villalobos said of his favorite. "I like how they play. Playing for Bill Snyder, a living legend, that'd be pretty cool. The spring game was great and I saw one of my old teammates playing."
