2013 defensive tackle prospect, Tanner Schorp, from Reagan High School in San Antonio, Texas has some big visits coming up. The 6'3 230-pound prospect recently got back from a Junior Day visit to Baylor where he was pleasantly surprised by the facilities and program.
"It's really nice," Schorp said. "I liked it. Their facilities were really nice. They are building a brand new football stadium that's going to be done in 2015, so we would be the first class to play on it. It surprised me that the university is getting so big. They are definitely on the rise.We got to take pictures by the Heisman trophy. It was fun. Their defensive line coach, Chris Achuff , talked with me and told me ‘the potential is there.' The defensive coordinator, Phil Bennett, said he wanted to see me play more. They said they were going to be there my first day of spring practice."
Schorp will be participating in the Nike Training camp this Sunday down in Dallas, Texas. During his time there he will also be taking a visit down to SMU's Junior Day on Saturday.
"SMU has had a winning season the past few years," Schorp said. "I know it's a nice school. I haven't seen their facilities or anything yet, but I'm excited to see it. I want to meet the coaches because connecting with the coaches is a big thing for me. I want to see if they can relate to us on a personal level and their coaching style. I like the guys that get real fired up about their job and wish they were playing with us almost. I also want to check out their facilities."
On March 31st, Schorp will be taking another Junior Day visit this time it will be to see Houston's campus.
"Houston has a pretty good Division-1 program," Schorp said. "I don't know that much about them other than that they have a new coaching staff, so I'm glad I'm going to go check them out. I know it's a good school. Travis Bush (Running Backs) has just been explaining that they are interested in me. I'm sure when I get up there we will talk a little bit more. The location is good, but my family's going to be supporting me wherever I go, but being in the state of Texas is a positive."
Schorp has kept busy this offseason running the 200-meter dash for his school's track team in an effort to improve on his speed. The defensive lineman has gotten his squat up to 415, while also improving on his bench press maxing at 265.
