Roos Lands Big East Offer
Jordan Roos is not only a major college football prospect, he's also among the nation's elite in the shot put (throws 64-plus feet), and several colleges want Roos in both sports. "Louisville offered today and I really wasn't expecting it," said Roos. "I wasn't aware they were recruiting me for football until yesterday when their track coach called. "I don't know much about their football program yet, but I'm glad to get the offer. They want me in football and track and that's neat." Roos spoke about the programs that are pursuing him heavily and the programs that are possible frontrunners. "I get letters every day from Louisiana Tech," he said. "Coach (Kevin) Curtis is my recruiter from there. Colorado's coaches message me constantly, and they stand out as a favorite, as well as Purdue. "I like the level of interest that Colorado shows, and I like their coaches. I call coaches regularly to make sure they know I'm interested. The other day, I called Coach (Bobby) Kennedy at Colorado, and I ended up talking to everybody. I talked to the head coach and the offensive coordinator. They passed the phone around and it was a really good conversation. "Purdue was one of the first big schools to offer me. They've continued to recruit me, and I've stayed interested in them. I'm visiting Purdue at the end of this month. I'm going to drive up there and see how the trip is. I don't think distance will be a factor for me when it comes to choosing a school." Roos, who was recently named Offensive Line MVP at the Ultimate 100 in Duncanville, Texas, is keeping an open mind when it comes to his recruitment. "I'm taking it day by day. I'm learning more as I go along. I want to see what all the schools have to offer," he said. "I'm still being recruited for track by a lot of schools, and I don't want to shut any doors at this point. "Most schools are cool with me competing in both football and track. I'm also hearing that more big programs may offer during my senior year." In 2010, Celina swept through the regular season without a loss and the Bobcats should have no problems moving the chains this fall with Roos and '13 OL Jake Raulerson clearing the way. "We start two-a-day practices on August 1st," said Roos. "We want to dominate everybody in our path on running plays and not let anyone get past us on passing plays."
