Messer on Horned Frog's Radar

Fort Worth (Texas) Nolan Catholic offensive lineman Ryan Messer already has some offers, but would love to have the chance to play at TCU. In this interview with HFB.com Messer talks about his camp performance and the hometown favorite.

It's already been said that last week's mini-camp at TCU boasted some of the most talented offensive and defensive linemen from North Texas.

While many of those prospects were well-known players before the camp, one player made a big impression with his performance; Ft. Worth Nolan Catholic lineman Ryan Messer.

At 6-foot-3, 270-pounds, Messer displayed excellent footwork and versatility in all of the drills and says out of all of the camps he's attended, TCU's set the standard.

"It was a really well run camp, I've been to four other camps so far and the TCU's was the best one," Messer said. "I liked getting the work in on offense and defense for long periods of time and I feel like I improved on my pass and run blocking."

Messer is drawing interest from several programs and already has a couple of offers to show.

"The schools that are on me the hardest right now is Kansas State, Houston, Tulsa and Yale," Messer said. "I have offers from Air Force and Navy."

"We're looking to have another good team this year," Messer said of Nolan Catholic.

For TCU, the Horned Frogs are in good shape with Messer considering his family goes to every home game. Aside from attending the games, Messer has familiarity with the program from friends and says he'd definitely like the opportunity to play for the hometown team.

"It's a hometown team for me, we come to the games, and we have season tickets. I really enjoy the program," he said. "I've actually had a couple of friends come out of Nolan and play for TCU and I've heard nothing but good things."

"Just their whole program and what they've got going on in the future is pretty good and hopefully if I keep working hard I could get an offer to play there. I'd like to stay in Texas and play for team like TCU."
