Meet Cedar Rapids (Ia.) Washington junior offensive tackle Julian Good-Jones (6'5, 265), a potential BCS prospect already hearing from several schools.

Cedar Rapids Washington has a couple of returning players who have the potential to receive more recruiting attention over the next few months. One such prospect is 6-foot-5, 265-pound offensive tackle Julian Good-Jones, who made big strides this season.

"Sophomore year was my first on varsity. I played sophomore football [my freshman] year, so knew I knew what it was like to play with older kids, so I didn't have a lot of trouble transitioning to varsity. But I think last year compared to this year, I just got a lot stronger and it was a lot easier for me this year. Last year, I was O.K. but this year I think I really started to be dominant and last year I was just kind of there."

Recruiting attention has started to come his way, mostly from Midwestern programs.

"I get letters from Kansas State, Iowa State and Iowa and I went to a couple of Iowa State games. They send a lot of invites, but I could only make two."

Those visits with the Cyclones have been good first experiences as a recruit.

"It was cool. I like Jack Trice Staidum. They have really good facilities. I think it's a pretty good school."

As for contact with the coaches, Good-Jones says, "They said it's more the beginning. They had a lot of kids there, so they wanted us to send in our highlight tapes. I talked to my recruiter, but didn't talk to the head coach or anything."

Next up, Good-Jones hopes to continue to improve his game, and also hit the road in hopes to draw more attention this summer.

"I think going to quite a few college camps. I got a lot invites last year but I didn't think I was ready physically to go to those. I'm lifting now and I'm in basketball. I'm going to try to get stronger, bigger and go to all the in-state camps, UNI, Iowa State and Iowa, and try some out of state ones too."
