With many prospects being in the full swing of recruiting by the end of their sophomore years, it came as no surprise that Austin (TX) Westlake 2011 quarterback Preston Dewey is receiving heavy interest from a plethora of schools, one of which is Texas A&M.

Saturday afternoon, Mike Sherman and his staff hosted several of the states top athletes for their junior day, and, though not starting as a sophomore, Dewey was in attendance. "I had a 1 on 1 with Coach Rossley on Saturday; he is a great coach with a ton of NFL experience. He said there are a handful of qbs in my class that they like, including me. They will be keeping track of all of us during the season."

In addition, Dewey attended A&M's one day mini camp on Sunday. "It was a big camp with a lot of talented guys. Overall everything went well for me. I thought everybody in my group was really good. I like Showers a lot, and Joeckel and Honeycutt impressed me as well."

This year, Dewey will again play alongside senior Westlake quarterback Tanner Price, a strong-armed southpaw committed to play at Wake Forest . Dewey expects to get roughly a third of the snaps, yet has set a pretty lofty goal for the season. "I want to play well enough to put a tape together and get colleges' attention. As far as the team, I just want to help us win state any way we can. I really think we can do it. We have a great new coaching staff and everyone is excited."

Preston 's father, Mike Dewey, played his college football at A&M as a deep snapper in the late 70's. Preston would love to follow in his father's footsteps but has set up a basic top five going into his junior year, "A&M is number one, besides that I have Mississippi State, Baylor, TCU, and SMU."
