Midland (Tex.) wide receiver DeAndre Goodley has been working hard during the off-season and has a few programs from which he's hoping to get some interest...

Midland (Tex.) wide receiver DeAndre Goodley was happy with his accomplishments on the field during his junior season, crediting his experience for his growth on the field.

The 5-foot-10, 155-pound prospect plays receiver, kick returner, and punt returner for the Bulldogs.

"My speed is probably my biggest strength at receiver. I'm able to come off the ball faster. My speed and also my catching ability. I think I improved most in my production on the field as the season went on. I just had more confidence and knew what I was capable of, so I think it just got easier," he said.

Since the season ended, Goodley has been busy both in the weight room, trying to get bigger before this senior season, and with off-season football. He also runs track, where he competes in the 100m, 400m, 4 x 100m relay, and long jump.

Goodley hasn't yet had the opportunity to visit any colleges, but has been invited to a few camps, including North Texas. He's optimistic and hopes to hear from a few programs, including Baylor, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma State.

"I think Baylor's program has been productive over the years and I like their style of play. I would like to be a part of something like that. With Texas Tech and Oklahoma State, I like how they both air out the ball and try to get the ball to their receivers," he said.

For now, Goodley is preparing for his final time playing high school spring football.

"We start spring football on April 29th. The first week we'll just go out in shirts and shorts and get the feel of the game again and from there we will put the pads on and get back to the same speed, do what we do," he said.
