BCS Comes Calling for Texada

Ranthony Texada

Ranthony Texada has become one of the hottest prospects in Texas throughout the Spring Evaluation period and he just picked up his first official offer from a BCS school.

"Baylor just offered," a happy Ranthony Texada happily reported. "I was just watching the basketball game with my brothers when I got the news."

Texada is being recruited by BU assistant coach Jim Gush.

The, 5-foot-9, 160-pound corner from Frisco Centennial has great footwork and fundamentals at the position and that is the reason why offers have flown in from the likes Air Force, Colorado State, Idaho, Navy, Nevada, Troy, UNLV, Western Kentucky and Wyoming.

But the Big 12 offer is especially gratifying and rewarding.

"It feels great," Texada explained. "Knowing I have been flying under radar... and that the hard work is starting to show and pay off."

Texada's high school teammate and fellow Scout.com three-star prospect, Kevin Smith, is currently committed to Baylor.

"He was the first person I called," Texada said. "He was real excited. He has been committed to them for awhile."

The Frisco Centennial Titans had a very strong year in 2011 and a strong showing in spring ball and last weekend's 7-on-7 State Qualifying Tournament give indications that the team will come back strong again in 2012.

"It went good," Texada informed of the team's development throughout the spring. "We are getting new o-line and the new guys are starting to step up big. We got a lot of work to do still, but Frisco Centennial is set for another big season this year."

Texada earned Scout.com All-NFTC honors after a strong showing at the DFW Nike Football Training Camp. He also had one of the notable performances at the Next Level Athlete Showcase at Lancaster High.
