Feist attends TCU junior day

Connor Feist was among the handful of visitors who attended TCU's junior day last weekend.

The TCU Horned Frogs headed into the 2013 recruiting class with a limited number of scholarships. Among the scholarships for the class, the Frogs are looking for at least one quarterback.

That is if the right one comes along.

The Frogs currently have offers out to Cody Thomas and Kenny Hill. Both signal callers have been on campus and another prospect the Frogs are keeping a close eye on is Langham Creek quarterback Connor Feist.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder was one of the more dominating quarterbacks from the Houston area in 2011 throwing for 2,800 yards and 24 scores with only five interceptions.

Feist was one of only a few prospects in Ft. Worth on Sunday for TCU's junior day.

"It was real nice up there, I really liked their facilities," Feist said. "I felt like it was a nice tight campus and you could get everywhere real quick; I really liked that aspect about it. It felt really homey, I really liked it."

While on the visit Feist got plenty of personal time with quarterback coach and co-offensive coordinator Rusty Burns. The signal caller says Burns made him feel at home the entire time.

"We went over some of their film and saw what they do offensively and how they line up against defenses and how they attack them," Feist said of Burns. "I thought Coach Burns was great, he always had a smile on his face and was cracking jokes. He lightened the mood and made me feel comfortable. He was real honest and upfront about everything with me so I really appreciated that."

Feist wasn't extended an offer while on the visit, but he knows exactly where he stands on the Frogs interest level.

"He said they take their recruiting of quarterbacks very seriously and that they aren't just going to jump in at an offer. They said they really liked my film but the fact that they haven't seen me throw in person is a big deciding factor so they'll be down in the spring to watch me throw and if they like it they'll be back again. They said they usually evaluate in person, they'll probably come to a few games this season before they throw out an offer."

Langham Creek runs a spread offense that is similar to the same offense TCU runs. That's just one of the reasons TCU is a team Feist is familiar with.

"They've gone from basically nothing into one of the top schools in the country in the last ten years. They're averaging about 11 wins a season so that's good. In the past couple of years they've been to a couple of BCS bowl games," Feist said of TCU. "They have one of the top offenses in college football. It's definitely a place I'm considering; I think it would be a good fit."

Feist attended an Arkansas junior day the weekend prior to his visit to TCU. While he says the facilities are equal, he admits his experience at TCU gave him more of a personal feeling.

"I would say Arkansas' had a lot more people, they had 45 to 50 people. Theirs is just more of an informational meeting. We meet all the coaches but we just kind of walked around freely," Feist said. "At TCU, there are a lot of coaches with you all the time talking to you and sitting with you at lunch. I think TCU was a lot more personal than Arkansas was in that aspect. I really like that out of TCU. Facility wise they match up equally."
