Billings Recaps Latest TCU Visit

Waco, Texas defensive tackle Andrew Billings recaps his latest TCU visit.

Waco, Texas defensive lineman Andrew Billings has been one of the most watched 2013 recruits since the season began. Once a little known prospect, Billings burst onto the scene prior to his senior season.

One of the first teams to notice the 6-foot-1, 305-pounder was TCU, who was the second school to offer Billings a full scholarship. Since that offer in late February, Billings totaled nearly 30 offers during the process. He narrowed his top three down to TCU, Texas and Baylor a few months ago and it's remained unchanged. Texas A&M made a push to join his finalists, but it was too little too late.

With the three Big 12 schools remaining in contention, Billings has made it a point to visit all three contenders one last time before making his decision. He visited Texas in early December and will visit Baylor next weekend. This past weekend he made the drive north to visit TCU for an official.

Billings has been on TCU's campus multiple times since the Horned Frogs offered and one thing he's definitely noticed is the constant improvements.

"It went well," he said of the visit. "Ever since the first time we went there to now, the school has really changed. The stadium and everything, and me and the coaches have built a better connection. It just keeps getting better every time."

Billings maintains that the Frogs, Longhorns and Bears are all on an equal playing field. All three are reportedly looking at him as a defensive lineman and the message from TCU on Sunday told him he would have an immediate impact if he decided to be a Horned Frog.

"They said I'm on top of the list and that I would play nose," Billings said.

Before he left, Billings also spoke with TCU head coach Gary Patterson and said the meeting was very relaxed.

"We didn't talk about football much, it was really a laid back conversation, and it was relaxed," he said.

After Billings visits Baylor next weekend, he will announce his destination the following week before he participates in the Team USA vs. The World game.
