Rhodes discusses TCU

Ft. Worth Southwest receiver Robbie Rhodes is up to five offers, the most recent coming from TCU.

Last season it took one game for FW Southwest receiver Robbie Rhodes to land on the radar of several college programs. Of course, that's easy to do when you haul in 10 catches for 390 yards and 8 touchdowns…in one game. Rhodes' big performance helped the Raiders to a 66-21 win over district rival Arlington Heights that evening.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder went on to finish his junior season with 47 catches for 1,315 yards and 21 scores. Rhodes has received offers from Baylor, Texas Tech, Missouri, Ole Miss and most recently added an offer from the local team; TCU.

Rhodes attended two of the Horned Frogs spring practices and was receiving strong interest from them for quite a while. Which is why he wasn't surprised when they offered.

"I knew they were probably going to offer," Rhodes said. "Coach Patterson offered me. He was telling me how they're going to the Big 12 and they're getting an extension of their facilities and will be upgraded to Big 12 status. He also said they always have a high graduation rate."

Rhodes attended the Frogs last scrimmage of the spring and like other recruits who have watched the practices, he took note of the intensity and pace.

"It was a good practice, it was fast paced and the intensity was high," Rhodes said.

Aside from the fact it takes only ten minutes to get to campus from his home, Rhodes says the most impressive factor he likes about TCU is their successful graduation rate.

"I like that 8 or 9 of 10 players will graduate and you don't have to worry about not graduating or worry about not having something to fall back on if you get hurt," Rhodes said.

Rhodes hasn't set a timeline for when he will commit, he does however have a leader at the moment.

"I like Baylor right now," Rhodes said of his favorites. "I like the coaches, facilities and the campus."

Rhodes will compete in the district 6-4A track meet Thursday evening. He has one of the area's fastest 200-meter times with a best of 21.4.
