Scout presents highlights of Texas Tech offensive line commit Robert Castaneda out of Round Rock …
Castaneda Enjoyed Visit to Tech
"It was everything I expected it to be," Castaneda said. "To see the coaches again, to hear the crowd, because I've never got to see a game before, this was my first time. It was really fun to hear the crowd yell all the chants."
Castaneda, 6-foot-4, 300 pounds, rolled into town Saturday morning in time to be on the field for pregame warmups. He said coach Kliff Kingsbury made a point to greet him on the field and visit with him briefly, which he appreciated.
The three-star prospect and the No. 7 ranked guard in Texas wasn't alone. He brought along teammate and friend Keyon Dilosa, a 6-3, 180-pound wide receiver.
Dilosa is also rated as a three-star prospect, who has caught 49 passes for 666 yards and four touchdowns for the ground oriented Dragons. He holds offers from Houston, Montana and New Mexico, but has also heard from Oklahoma.
"The coaches finally got to meet him in person and had a lot of positive things to say. I'm more then positive they are going to offer him soon," Castaneda said. "He's a great leader on and off the field. He's got great hands, he's fast, he's so tall and just an amazing target for our quarterback."
After the game Castaneda said they ate at Spanky's , then he and his aunt and uncle stayed the night at the Overton. Sunday they knocked around town to get a better feel for Lubbock and Castaneda, who pledged to Tech last summer over offers from Houston, Kansas State and Purdue, said he wasn't disappointed.
"It's definitely the place to be, the people in Lubbock are so nice," Castaneda said. "Every person I walk by just assumes I'm a football player and already on the team. I'm definitely 100 percent Tech."
