TCU targets shine at NLA Texas Top 100

HornedFrogBlitz.com takes a look at the offensive standouts from the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 Camp.

Several TCU prospects made their way to the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 camp in Lancaster, Texas on Sunday afternoon and FOX Sports NEXT and HornedFrogBlitz.com was there to catch the action.

With top players on both sides of the ball in attendance, the first analysis will be on the offensive side of the ball. Let's take a look at each position.


QUARTERBACK

Foster Sawyer and Grayson Muehlstein was the top two quarterbacks in attendance. No doubt about it. Sawyer measured in at 6-foot-5, 205 and his throws were on the money, especially on some deep passes. He also displayed great footwork and mechanics. Sawyer has an invite to TCU's junior day.

Muehlstein was equally impressive, definitely displaying a very strong arm and good footwork. He measured in a 6-foot-4, 200 and said he also has a JR day invite to TCU. He will attend LSU's junior day on February 16th. He had an invite to Oklahoma State's junior day on January 26th, but instead took the SAT.

Wylie quarterback Kameron Kelly was another quarterback in attendance who has received TCU interest. He was injured most of the season last year but has decent size at 6-foot-2, 170-pounds and throws a good deep ball.


RUNNINGBACK

It wasn't a loaded field at runningback and there weren't any prospects receiving TCU interest in the group. In fact, with only seven players in attendance at the position each player received plenty of reps. Texas commit Daniel Gresham stood out with his pass catching ability and another player to watch is Waxahachie runningback Treyvon Hughes. Hughes is a big back at 6-foot, 200-pounds and displayed nice quickness on his route running.


WIDE RECEIVERS


Gates is getting recruited by Clay Jennings
It was a loaded group of receivers that had a nice blend of big-bodied receivers to slot types who had blazing speed. Among the TCU targets in attendance was Willy Ivery, who is a perfect slot receiver. He can cut on a dime and displayed good hands catching the ball. In all honesty, he can also play runningback and likely would've made an even bigger splash there. The good news for TCU fans is Coach Anderson has already been by Sulphur Springs two times this off-season. Ivery says he doesn't have a junior day invite yet but plans to get to Texas Tech next month.

Bryson Gates out of Fairfield, Texas was an intriguing prospect. Gates measured in at 6-foot-3, 212-pounds and was one of, if not the biggest receivers in attendance. He's not extremely fast but athletically he's a kid that will get some interest. Gates say Clay Jennings has recruited him since his sophomore year. Houston is another program that has shown strong interest early on.

John Caldwell out of Dallas St. Mark's was another impressive looking receiver. 6-2, 212 and ran good routes and caught the ball really well. TCU has shown strong interest in him among others.

Tyrique Edwards out of Sachse was another impressive WR prospect. Edwards was one of the faster receivers in attendance and caught a few deep balls on the day. He said TCU is showing the most interest up to this point and is also getting interest from Baylor, Texas Tech, SMU, Rice and Texas A&M. He plans to attend junior days at Texas Tech and SMU.


OFFENSIVE LINEMAN


Lundblade took home OL MVP honors
Connor Mayes was one of the better offensive linemen in attendance and definitely one of the bigger kids which allowed him to easily dominate some skinny defensive ends. Mayes is headed to Baylor's junior day next weekend (the Bears offered a few weeks ago) and plans to attend Minnesota's junior day as well. Mayes says he hasn't heard from TCU lately.

Ty Barrett out of Skyline has a big frame and moved fairly well. He doesn't have an offer from TCU at the moment but the interest is there after DeMontie Cross visited the school a few weeks ago.

TCU needs to put in a call to Argyle Liberty guard/center Brad Lundblade. He won the OL MVP over Mayes, Demetrius Knox and Ty Barrett just to name a few. Lundblade doesn't have an offer yet but he is going to Baylor's JR day next weekend and LSU on Feb. 16th. He hasn't heard much from the Frogs but did attend a mini-camp at TCU last summer.


OFFENSIVE SLEEPERS

Wide receiver James Washington out of Stamford put on a show. Some regarded him as one of the top five receivers in attendance. He is blazing fast and tortured defensive backs on his post patterns. Most importantly, he caught the ball when he had the opportunity. Surprisingly, the only interest he's received thus far is from Texas State. He says he's getting more interest in track at the moment and specializes


Flores did well at the 1-on-1's
Demetrius Knox wasn't the only impressive offensive lineman from All Saints at the event. His teammate, Charlie Flores, also drew some praise. Flores plays right tackle for the Saints and he definitely displayed excellent footwork and reach on Sunday. He doesn't have an offer or junior day invite yet, but Coach Beck at All Saints feels Flores is about to blow up on the recruiting scene.

Kendall Adams is another All Saints player who should be receiving TCU interest. He's going to OU's junior day on February 2nd and SMU's on the 16th. He's received steady interest from Texas Tech and Texas among others. Adams measured at 6-foot-1, 193-pounds and has the speed and size to be a next level outside receiver. He caught a few deep passes on the day. He's equally impressive as a free safety.

One of the biggest offensive linemen in attendance was Justin Northwest tackle Austin Hulzenga who looked about 6-foot-6, 310-pounds. He needs to work on his feet a little bit and is stiff sometimes, but you can't argue the kid's size and his strength.
