Crosby 2014 WR emerging

Crosby, Texas 2014 wide receiver Raelon Singleton.

TCU has already started on their 2014 class by hauling in an early commitment from Dallas Lincoln wide receiver Emmanuel Porter.

It's a good start for the Frogs who will be in need of some quality receivers starting in 2014 with key contributors using all of their eligibility or entering their senior years of the current corp. Another name to keep an eye on at receiver for next year's class is a rising player from Crosby, Texas; Raelon Singleton.

At 6-foot-5, 185-pounds, Singleton is a versatile receiver totaling 700 yards and 8 touchdowns on the year. Crosby finished the season with an 8-4 record after advancing to the second round of the class 4A playoffs.

The humble Singleton feels there is plenty of room for improvement both for him and his team going into next season.

"I'd probably give myself a B and I think we could've done a little better but I think we got a little big headed when we were going into the games," he said. "I think we could've done way better."

Surprisingly, just a few teams have caught on to the talented junior. Not surprising though, TCU is one of them.

"TCU is the team looking at me the most," he said. "Utah has sent me some stuff. Texas Tech also called a couple of weeks ago. Both haven't showed a whole lot of interest but they've called my coach once or twice. TCU is showing me the biggest interest."

Singleton is being recruited by TCU receivers coach Trey Haverty and he says the two already have a good relationship.

"He's a real cool guy," he said. "He told me about how the facilities are and they're hard working and they're going to get me right with everything. That's what I like about him. He's fun with it too."

What does he know about the Frogs?

"Not that much other than they've been ranked a lot," he said.

TCU has spoken with Singleton's coach about the possibility of visiting soon. At the moment the Frogs are in the lead out of the schools showing interest. However, one team has had Singleton's attention for quite a while.

"My favorite right now is Florida, I grew up watching Florida," he said. "I had a good time when I went out there when I was younger. They also have a good football team and they look organized."
