Jake Raulerson, the two-way lineman from Celina High School was the only junior prospect on campus the weekend of January 21st on his unofficial visit. This meant he and his parents, had to pay for their own meals.
Raulerson is one of the top (if not the top) juniors in the 2013 recruiting class. Raulerson stated, “It’s the coaching staff, the players there. They are going to win a national title in the next three years and I want to be a part of it. They have one of the best recruiting classes I have ever seen coming in. They are ridiculous.”
Raulerson (6-foot-5, 250 pounds) plays right tackle and nose guard for Celina, a 3A program 45 minutes north of Dallas that has eight state titles to its name. But Texas is recruiting him as a defensive end and a tight end. Matt Brown stated, “Son, you are going to play anywhere you want in the country. I just hope it’s at Texas.” It came down to Texas and Stanford.
