Pryor Anxious For TCU Visit

Sulphur Springs, Texas 2015 standout Larry Pryor will visit TCU on Sunday.

Larry Pryor already has two Big 12 offers on the table; a third could be in the fold by the end of the weekend.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder from Sulphur Springs is regarded by many as the top safety prospect in the Lone Star State for the 2015 class. Texas and Texas Tech have extended offers to Pryor and an offer from TCU could be next.

TCU receivers coach Curtis Luper visited Sulphur Springs last week and although Pryor didn't talk to Luper face-to-face, his coach informed him that the Frogs' coach told him to be expecting one once he visits. A visit is scheduled for this Sunday.

"I haven't really talked to him much, he just talks to my coach about me," he said of his conversations with Luper. "He wanted me to come down a few weeks ago but I couldn't come down because of baseball. But, I'll finally have the chance to come down this Sunday.

"My coach told me that they were going to for sure offer me when I go down. It would mean something; I would have another offer and have somewhere else to look forward to going to."

Pryor hasn't visited many schools recently. He attended Texas' spring game and was offered shortly after. He's also made his way to College Station to check out the Aggies.

"A few weekends after I went to Texas I went to A&M," he said. "They're (A&M) not looking at offering me right now; they said they probably wouldn't offer me early if they do even offer me."

He's been limited to visiting programs thanks to a busy baseball schedule, where he's also a standout centerfielder. Although he didn't perform up to his standards, he felt his team had a successful season.

"It went pretty good, we ended up losing out in the second round to Whitehouse," Pryor said of his season. "They were pretty good, but we did pretty good against them, we lost 7-6 to them."

Early in the process, Pryor spoke highly of TCU, even mentioning them as an early favorite. He attended TCU games when they hosted Kansas State and Oklahoma. However, he says another team is standing out at the moment but is quick to admit that he needs to see other programs to make a fair comparison.

"I'm starting to look at things a little differently right now," he said. "I like Texas as my top right now but I still haven't taken all the visits that I want to take."

Pryor will visit TCU this Sunday with his family and his Sulphur Springs teammate Willy Ivery. What is he looking forward to seeing on the visit?

"I'd like to meet all of the coaches and get a tour of the school," he said. "I haven't seen the whole school yet so I'd definitely like to see that."
