Another West Brook DE in the pipeline

Beaumont (Texas) West Brook is starting to become one of the top programs in the state's largest classification. The Bruins have had several players go the Division I route the past few years. The class of 2012 has not had the early fanfare of others at the school did but it is headlined by a very good defender.
Junior defensive end Caleb Bluiett came into his own during the 2010 season. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound prospect helped anchor a defense that was among the Houston area's best.
"I'm getting a lot of stuff from schools," Bluiett said. "Tulsa, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Texas, Iowa State, Duke, Missouri and some others are all recruiting me. Those are the ones I remember off the top of my head."

Bluiett had the opportunity to take in a game at an in-state school this season.
"I don't know of any junior days just yet," he said. "I did go to the Texas-Iowa State game this year, though. I liked it. I liked the experience and watching the teams play. I got to talk to the coaches and the players on the field afterward and shook a couple of their hands. Coach (Major) Applewhite is recruiting me for them. So is coach (Oscar) Giles."
Another in-state Big 12 program has also been in contact with Bluiett and he says the two make up his top group.
"Texas A&M and Texas, those are my top two," he said. "I've talked to one of the coaches at A&M. They seem to like me as well."
Bluiett could possibly move inside at the next level and be a quick pass-rushing defensive tackle but he says no schools have mentioned it.
"They all say they see me at defensive end," he said. "That's what I play for West Brook."
He fared well at the position this year.
"I made first-team all-district and the Super Gold team," Bluiett said. "That's an award for the (Golden Triangle) area's top players."
Fellow defensive end Ben Goodman, a Kansas commit, received much of the attention for West Brook this year. Bluiett says it helped him up his own game.
"I know Ben gets a lot of attention on the other side," he said. "I guess it surprised me a little bit how well I did this year. I just stepped up like I needed to, though."
