But gone is one of the more talented senior classes in school history, which included two full-time starters on the offensive line and one occassional starter.
“There's no front that he hasn't seen,” Dombek said. “It's good to have an experienced guy up there that can tell the guys beside him what to expect.”
Newland is on a big camp tour this summer, hoping to pick up some scholarship offers along the way. He said he thinks New Mexico is probably the closest school to offering.
One goal of his is to return to San Antonio next January, this time as a U.S. Army All-American Bowl participant.
“Right now it's just a matter of time,” Newland said. “They are waiting and evaluating everyone.
“But that would be a great goal of mine, to be able to compete against those defensive linemen. What's fun about stuff like that is seeing all of what's out there.”
