2014 DE Intrigued by TCU

Abilene, TX is home to 2014 DE Jake McMillon. The big defender is making the rounds to programs throughout Texas in hopes of landing coveted scholarship offers.

Abilene High School has produced top prospects in the past and the class of 2014 will produce yet another D-1 player. 6'3" 240 pound DE, Jake McMillon is garnering early interest from programs throughout the region and he was at TCU last week when the Horned Frogs hosted the Virginia Cavaliers. What are his thoughts on the game, the visit, and the recruiting process? HornedFrogBlitz.com has the answers.

"I enjoyed my visit a lot" said McMillon. "Seeing the stadium was really nice. I went to a camp this summer and they were fixing it all up but getting to see it now was pretty cool."

With a defensive coach recruiting McMillon for the Frogs, the hope is that TCU will see enough in his development to warrant an offer. McMillon says he likes the TCU coach recruiting him.

"Coach Glasgow is recruiting me and I like him a lot" he said. "He's a really nice guy and I like talking to him. I visited with him at breakfast before the game so it was good."

With TCU holding the reputation of a tough, hard-nosed, defensive team, defensive recruits are drawn to their style of play. Did TCU do enough against Virginia to impress McMillon?

"Oh yes sir" said the big defensive end. "They have a couple of big studs out there and they did well against Virginia." Projected as a defensive end at the next level, McMillon says SMU, Baylor and TCU are teams that he's seen up close for game day visits. He says he's looking for a few more schools to show interest as well.

"Oh man, I like all the schools in Texas" he said. "I see myself playing somewhere in Texas because I don't really want to go out of state too much."

"I've been getting letters to come out to games from Oklahoma State and Arizona too so I'm going to have to go check those out too."
