Dallas safety has serious Texas ties

While much fuss has been made over the upcoming February 10th Junior Day, the Longhorns are assembling quite a line-up for their second Junior Day on February 23rd.

One of those prospects that will be coming in on the 23rd is Dallas (Texas) Adamson defensive back Roderick Goodlow. The 6-1, 180-pound Goodlow wasn't of the first players from the Metroplex to pop up on the recruiting scene, but he's become a must-see-viewing for college coaches going through the area this month.

"I'm real excited about the whole recruiting process. This is the stuff that I've been dreaming about for a long time and now that I'm going through the recruiting process, it's just remarkable," Good low said. "I'm getting mail from Stanford, Texas, Texas Tech. They've come by the school and have invited me to junior days. Hopefully, I can visit those schools in the future."

New Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp went by Adamson last week to look at Goodlow, who has the potential to be a factor at a couple of different positions at the next level.

"Because of my size most people are looking at me as a strong safety," Goodlow said. "They've said that I might end up being a cover linebacker, but I really want to play strong safety in college."

As far as favorites go, Goodlow has a few schools already on his mind.

"I mostly like Stanford, Texas Tech, Texas, LSU, Missouri and Florida. Those are the ones that I really like right now," Goodlow, who is scheduled to visit Texas Tech on March 1st, said.

If there's a school that might be out in front of everyone at the moment, it might just be the Longhorns.

"Texas is a school I've always liked," Goodlow said. "My sister just graduated from there. My whole family is made up of Texas fans and we pretty much go watch them every weekend. That's pretty good that I can now go down there and see the campus and can actually be recruited by them right now.

"Yeah, if they were to offer me, they'd be high in the picture."
