Many times when committed players attend camps other than the program to which they are committed, fans sometimes get an uneasy feeling.
But when it comes to Spring (Tex.) Westfield offensive lineman Cordel Iwuagwu, the fans from his program have little or nothing to worry about. Iwuagwu committed to TCU not long ago after an unofficial visit.
"It felt like home. I went down there talked to players and coaches and I can like really connect with them," Iwuagwu said. "And there's a new facility down there with new dorms, new everything. And I love it. I can't wait to be a Horned Frog."
The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Iwuagwu was convinced while he was down in Fort Worth, Tex. and did not take much time to contemplate before saying yes to coach Gary Patterson and staff. Explosiveness and speed for a big man was two of the factors that drew the TCU coaches to Iwuagwu. The coaches want him to play either guard or center.
Still though, with his commitment, it has not stopped a number of programs from recruiting him. But he has a message that he passes along to those who call.
"I'm still being recruited by Louisville and Texas A&M. But Oklahoma and Texas A&M, that's the only two programs I can think of that are still calling," Iwuagwu said. "When they call, I tell them I'm committed and I'm not available anymore."
