Bobcats target Cy Creek OT

Bobcats target Cy Creek OT

The search continues for size and skill up front. Towards the end of May, the coaching staff let this Houston area offensive tackle know that he has an offer waiting for him at Texas State. This target is now planning on making the trek to San Marcos.

Elijah Rodriguez already has 10 offers including Texas State's: Arizona State, Colorado, Kansas, Central Florida, New Mexico State, Fresno State, Tulsa, Arkansas State, and Nevada round out his offer lists. He's quick to point out that he never expected this many offers.

When you stand 6'5.5" 270lbs and can move on your feet, it won't take much for college programs to starting calling your number.

The Bobcats are recruiting Rodriguez to play tackle on the outside and defensive coordinator Craig Naivar is leading the charge.

"They offered me, I think at the end of May," Rodriguez said. "I was really happy that they offered. I've talked to their recruiter quite a bit. They're still recruiting me now and it's been a fun process,"

For his size he's a really good athlete. He moves quickly and is light on his feet. He locks out his arms and usually drives the defender to the second level if he hasn't pound'em into the ground. It doesn't matter whether it's run or pass blocking.

"I'm a well rounded blocker. I love both pass and run blocking. I enjoy run blocking a little more because I get to come out and knock the crap out of someone."

Elijah is continuing an extremely hectic summer schedule. He's already visited or camped at Baylor, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas, Arizona State, Rice, Texas Tech and Colorado. He's planning his last trip to Seminole country, Florida State.

Racking up the miles, Rodriguez really wants to commit before the start of his senior year. He's already been talking plenty with his family and just wants to be able to focus on his team and have a successful senior campaign.

A bright note for Bobcat Nation is that Rodriguez is making plans on taking an unofficial tour of the campus. He's done his research and has been impressed some by Texas State.

"They have a good engineering program and their campus is real beautiful. I'm still thinking about all the schools that have offered me. I want to go sometime in July to visit the campus and that should help me. I'm keeping an open mind."
