Cedar Park (Texas) finished the season ranked nationally with the best record in school history. Probably the main reason for the Timberwolves' dominance was perhaps the best offensive line in the state of Texas. It featured Rivals250 Baylor commit Spencer Drango as well as Rice commit Matt Wofford and Air Force commit Jarrett Hudson.
While Drango and Wofford anchored the tackle spots, it was junior guard Felix Romero that opened up holes in the middle of the line. The 6-foot-4, 297-pound lineman is starting to see attention of his own from schools.
"I'm mainly hearing from (Texas) A&M," Romero said. "That's the one school that I'm getting the most from. I also went to a lot of their games this season.
"Oregon has been sending me some stuff lately. Those are the two schools that send the most. I'm hearing a little bit more from Oklahoma State and SMU as well."
Romero has yet to receive his first offer but an in-state program could be close to extending one.
"I haven't taken my SAT yet and a lot of schools are waiting on that," he said. "I've stayed in contact with coach Jim Turner, he's the offensive line coach at A&M, and we're pretty close. I haven't heard anything about being offered yet but we talk a lot."
The spring is usually a time for juniors to take unofficial visits to campuses and that is exactly what Romero plans to do.
"I don't have any junior days planned just yet," he said. "I'm actually about to look into that with the recruiting coach at my high school. I'm hoping to go see A&M and Rice. I'd also like to see SMU and hopefully Oregon."
Though it is still a long way until signing day, Romero admits that the Aggies sit atop his list at the moment.
"It is early but right now they'd be my favorite," he said of Texas A&M. "My dad and I have gone to a couple of games and I'd say they would be named as my No. 1 choice right now. They are a great team and a great school."
Romero was voted by the coaches a first-team all-district selection in 2010.
