Even though a shoulder injury derailed Aaron Sowell's 2011 season, if the interior line prospect from Katy (Texas) can return to his 2010 form as a senior he'll have his share of college options.
Sowell is looking forward to what he hopes is a big senior season.
The 6-foot-2, 276-pound guard was a starter as a sophomore for a 13-1 Katy team, a program that has won six Texas state football titles. While Sowell's 2011 season didn't go as planned, a productive spring and what's starting out as a tremendous and physical maturity has landed him on some the radar.
“Boise State is interested, Rice is interested, and Kansas is very interested,” Sowell said. “I've been talking to a few different schools and so far the feedback has been good.”
As a sophomore, Sowell helped pave the way for a Katy running game that paced an offense which averaged over 450 yards per contest. Despite the injury, Sowell has managed to stay in shape and he's now back in the weight room looking to build onto his frame.
Sowell, who is expected to make an unofficial visit to Kansas soon and is also receiving heavy interest from Texas-San Antonio, said once he gets some good film together things should start falling into place.
“A lot of the schools talking to me say they want to see my film after the first three games,” Sowell said. “They've said that if I'm playing like I know I can after those three games then things should start happening.”
Sowell camped at Rice recently and is also receiving interest from Dartmouth because of his academic status.
