Recruiting Gearing Up for 2010 Lineman

Texas has brought in several big-time offensive linemen over the last two recruiting seasons, the majority of which are slated to play tackle on the next level. The Longhorns will likely look to add some interior linemen from the class of 2010 and San Antonio Clark's Robert Chapman has the potential to be one of the best. Chapman talked recruiting with IT.

The 6-foot-2, 270-pound Robert Chapman plays center at Tom Clark High School in San Antonio. He mentioned several schools that have caught his eye over the years.

"I've always loved Oklahoma, Texas, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Texas Tech and Texas A&M," Chapman said. "I like all of the big Texas schools and all the big Oklahoma schools."

With the exception of Tulsa, Chapman mentioned only Big 12 schools. However, a Big 12 school that was not mentioned above has been showing the most interest.

"Today, I got a letter from Iowa State. They want me to come up to one of their camps," Chapman said.

Chapman has attended a number of college football games close to the San Antonio area over the years, but nothing compared to watching the Red River Shootout in Dallas.

"I've been to a couple of games near San Antonio. I've been to a couple of Texas State and North Texas' games," Chapman said. "I was at a Texas and Oklahoma game a couple of years ago, the Red River Shootout. Their fans are crazy."

Chapman talked about what he will be looking for when recruiting picks up this fall.

"Always, academics always come first," Chapman said. "Other than that, I'll be looking for the school that is the best fit for me."
