An impressive list expected at TCU camp

Several top prospects are expected to attend TCU's camp on Friday.

TCU will hold its second one day camp on campus this Friday and if the list of players expected to attend holds true, it will be another very talented group of 2013 and 2014 prospects.

With only a few scholarships left for the 2013 class, a handful of players from the class who have TCU offers will be in attendance. John Curtis linebacker Duke Riley is expected to be on TCU's campus for the second time this year, he first visited on February 25th for a Frogs' junior day. Riley currently holds offers from Arizona, Colorado, Houston, Minnesota, Ole Miss and Mississippi State among others. With the Frogs aiming to add a few more linebackers to the class, all eyes will be on Riley.

Riley's teammate, Devin Horton, will also make the trip down. The 5-foot-9, 195-pounder currently doesn't hold an offer but Houston could be close to offering the Louisiana speedster.

Speaking of Louisiana speedsters, two of the Bayou State's top wideouts also plan to make the trip down. Dutchtown receiver Shelby Christy has offers from Cincinnati, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Northwestern and Southern Miss among others. Another receiver hoping to make it is Ronald Lewis who holds offers from programs coast to coast. Lewis is the #4 rated receiver in Louisiana.

Keeping with the list of impressive receivers expected to be in attendance, Wilmer-Hutchins' Keyshawn Henderson will also be at the camp. Henderson is another tall (6-2, 190) receiver with good speed and good hands. Henderson currently holds offers from Houston, Mississippi State and Tennessee among others. Henderson's teammate, linebacker Money Peterson, is expected to be at the camp too.

Another key position of interest is at cornerback, where two players high on the Frogs' radar are expected to be in attendance. Frisco Centennial cornerback Ranthony Texada, who is expected to make his decision next week is set to attend but will not work out. Texada already holds an offer from the Frogs and are in his final six teams he's choosing from. Texada ran a 4.33 and 3.77 shuttle at an earlier TCU camp this summer. Another standout corner making a return trip to Ft. Worth is Arlington High corner Devin Harris. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder attended the Frogs' June 8 camp and turned in a good performance with a 36-inch vertical and 4.53 forty. Harris, who holds offers from Rice, ULM, Louisiana Tech, Navy and Tulsa, is hoping the Frogs come through with an offer.

Princeton corner N'Keal Bailey (6-1, 165) is another one to watch and holds an offer from Tulsa.

With offers out to Andrew Billings, Montrayvious Adams and Justin Manning at defensive tackle, there isn't expected to be a big presence along the defensive line from the 2013 class but one name to watch is Springtown's Thomas Loving, a 6-foot-5, 240-pounder with 4.8 speed. Loving doesn't have any offers at the moment but programs are beginning to show interest in the big defensive end.

If there's any swaying to be done toward uncommitted recruits, TCU is in good hands with commitments George Baltimore, Bryson Burtnett and Sammy Douglas all expected to be in attendance, although they won't be working out. That just leaves the trio more time to recruit.

2014 QB's GALORE

Quite possibly the most loaded position at the camp could be at quarterback, most notably with class of 2014 prospects. Expected to be in attendance are Jerrod Heard, Foster Sawyer, Grayson Muehlstein and Caisson Montieth. Heard is regarded by many as the top quarterback in Texas for the 2014 class and he already holds offers from Nebraska, LSU, Arizona State, Baylor and has been approved for an offer from Texas. Sawyer is the biggest of the group at 6-foot-5, 215-pounds and has a rocket arm. He's attended camps at Oklahoma State and Alabama this summer and both are expected to offer the FW All Saints product.

Although he's not as well known as Heard and Sawyer, Muehlstein is on the verge of a breakout performance. At 6-foot-4, 190-pounds, Muelhstein is going under center full time for Decatur this fall and with a rocket arm and 4.5 speed, he's expected to do well.

MORE 2014 PROSPECTS TO WATCH

Monteith is also a little known prospect at the moment but after strong performances at various summer camps, including MVP honors at the junior rank camp, his name will land on even more programs' radars this fall.

Keeping with the 2014 theme, another player making a return appearance to TCU's camp is Keller Timber Creek defensive back Cedric Dale. It's the second TCU camp for Dale, who also attended the June 8th camp and he's hoping to impress the coaches enough to earn an offer. He ran a 4.42 at the last TCU camp and has run a 4.4 flat at Oklahoma. The speedster currently holds one offer from Texas Tech and is receiving strong interest from several others.

Another defensive back, well known to several college fan bases across the state is Dallas Skyline cornerback Cedric Collins, who is also expected to be in attendance. Collins already holds an offer from TCU along with Texas A&M, Baylor, Kansas State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas Tech and West Virginia among others. Collins has stated before that TCU is among his favorite programs.

Two names to watch at defensive end from the 2014 class are Fossil Ridge's Anthony Villalobos and Abilene's Jake McMillon. Both possess good size and high motors and will both be among the state's best at their position in 2014.

Two names that originally planned to be at the camp were Mineola linebacker Dac Shaw and California product Luca Bruno. Shaw is currently in California visiting family but is expected to visit the campus in early August. Bruno will visit SMU on Friday instead of camping at TCU.
