Longhorns Recruiting Road Trip: Week 10

mm

on

After Texas’s upset win over Oklahoma State, 2022 four-star quarterback, Cade Klubnik, received an offer from the Longhorns. Last year, I was able to watch Klubnik play in a supporting role for the state title winning Westlake Chaparrals. However, I was looking forward to seeing how Klubnik would perform when given the keys to the car.

Week 10:

This past weekend, I took in Westlake’s game against Akins, a district opponent. However, in addition to Klubnik, the Eagles would also have to try to stop Texas’s other target in Jaden Greathouse. Unfortunately for Akins, the Eagles did not stand much of a chance.

Initially, Klubnik was off to a slow start as an Eagles defender made a great break on a pass over the middle and came away with an interception. However, Klubnik kept his composure and accounted for three touchdowns from then on. Primary target Jaden Greathouse was also involved in the scoring action and had a couple of big receptions and a receiving touchdown. In fact, there was one deep pass from Klubnik that Greathouse was able to snag despite being tackled before the ball arrived. Westlake head coach, and former Longhorns quarterback, Todd Dodge, once again has a squad that is very capable of going the distance.

In addition, Chaparrals defensive coordinator, Tony Salazar, was recognized as last year’s top assistant coach in Texas. However, Westlake’s defense is also having an award-winning type of season, allowing only thirteen points through six games. Against Akins, the defense was able to tally their fourth shutout of the season with a 48-0 win.

Extra Point:

So far this season, Cade Klubnik has impressed me with his patience in the pocket. Despite being a talented runner, Klubnik also has a good feel for the pocket and makes smart decisions with the football. Last year, Klubnik was quick to tuck the ball and run. However, this season, Klubnik has picked his spots and it has been working brilliantly. Through six weeks, Klubnik has tallied 15 touchdowns through the air and seven on the ground. Of course, current Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger also attended Westlake High School before arriving on the forty acres in 2017. Westlake is one of the premier quarterback-producing powerhouses in the country; and the Longhorns could, once again, win a commitment from a Chaparrals quarterback.

As previously mentioned, 2023 wide receiver Jaden Greathouse is another stud for Westlake. Last season, Greathouse became the first-ever freshman to start for the Chaparrals. This season, Jaden has picked up where he left off and is continuing to torment defensive backs. Furthermore, he has a large frame for quarterbacks to target and has great hands. Currently, Greathouse leads Westlake in receiving yards (537) and is second in touchdown receptions (5).

Both Klubnik and Greathouse have tremendous potential and I am looking to seeing how the duo fares in the playoffs.
