Orr 'still solid to TCU'

We caught up with DeSoto (TX) cornerback and TCU commitment Nick Orr following today's visit to Texas.

The University of Texas hosted its first "Texas Stampede" Saturday, a recruiting event that gathered 2014 and 2015 prospects and their families on campus for a day of tours and interaction with the coaching staff and current players.

Nick Orr, a TCU commitment, was invited and in attendance with his father and former Longhorn Terry Orr.

Orr, reportedly expected to receive an offer at the event, told Scout.com upon departure that he did not.

"Coach (Duane) Akina said he wants to get to know me more and that's probably what they're going to do. He said he'll be in touch. He didn't say exactly when but that he'd be in touch," Orr said.

It was just two weeks ago that Texas entered the picture for the 5-foot-10, 166-pounder, who has started for Division-I powerhouse DeSoto High School since his freshman year.

"I found out at the State 7-on-7 tournament (July 12-13). That's when they started talking to Coach Mathis about me," said Orr.

This communication came two weeks following Orr's commitment to TCU.

"He (Akina) liked that I play bigger than I am. I'm physical and I can play safety or corner."

Orr noted he did not meet with any players Saturday, just coaches- Akina, Head Coach Mack Brown, defensive coordinator Manny Diaz and recruiter Bruce Chambers- and received a tour of the facilities with them.

Comparing TCU and Texas facilities, Orr said, "They both have good facilities. I like both. I didn't think either was better than the other."

Orr admitted he is interested in the Longhorns, especially with it being his father's alma mater, but is not selling himself to them. He is more so "hearing them out" and "listening to what they have to say."

With his teammate, 2015 defensive tackle Bryce English, already committed to the 'Horns, Orr noted, "I've talked to him, but he's not trying to sway me or anything."

Orr said Texas is the only school to have entered the picture as of late, since his TCU commitment, and show interest.

If he had received an offer:

"I don't think I would've switched today. I would've had to think about it, but it definitely would've changed things."

"I'm still solid to TCU."
