Visits paying off for Bobcats

Football players this recruiting period are quickly finding out that it is hard to ignore Texas State once they have taken a trip to San Marcos.

The same goes for quarterback/athlete Ronald Monroe out of George Bush High School who, after visiting Texas State, vaulted the Bobcats up his favorites list at a critical time in his process.

"The visit definitely changed my view of Texas State," Monroe said. "It moved (them) up to my top choice right now. It felt like a home and like it really fit me."

Monroe has offers from Texas State, New Mexico State and Houston, with the Bobcats and Cougars standing out. Monroe has interest in a number of Texas schools, but no others have offered.

This past season, Monroe passed for 1,932 yards and 22 touchdowns. The dual threat had close to 300 yards and six touchdowns rushing as well. Monroe plans to return to Texas State August 12 before making a final decision on his college destination, a decision that is to come before the start of his senior year.

"I'm still weighing all my options right now to see which college is the best fit," Monroe said. "I worked out as a defensive back, I wanted to try it and the coaches really like me at the position."

A three-star recruit, he stands at 6'3" and weighs 180 lbs. He won the newcomer of the year award in district 23-5A, where Bush High went 10-2 (6-1 in district), falling in the second round to La Porte.
