Ivery Recaps TCU Visit

The TCU Horned Frogs hosted Sulphur Springs athlete Willy Ivery this past weekend and the visit further cemented the Frogs as one of his favorites. After talking with the coaching staff, could a position change be in store?

The TCU Horned Frogs would love to take a big class this year but due to limited scholarship numbers, a TCU offer is harder to come by for class of 2014 recruits. Willy Ivery is on TCU's radar but it doesn't look like he will fit into the Frogs' offensive plans but that doesn't mean the Frogs aren't interested. So is a position change a possibility? Ivery spoke with HornedFrogBlitz.com tonight to give us the latest.

"My visit went great" said Ivery. "I know I said my visit to Tech was great but TCU's was just as good."

"I really liked the facilities a lot, I like what they're doing with the place and I especially liked them talking about academics with me."

When we last spoke with Ivery, he held offers from Colorado State, Texas State and Toledo. Now, just a little over a month later, he's added three more offers.

"I have 6 offers now" he said. "I just got offers from New Mexico, North Texas and Old Dominion."

While visiting TCU, Ivery spoke with Coach Luper and the two discussed where he stands with the Frogs. While TCU says they don't have room to offer Ivery as an offensive player, a position change might pay off in the near future should he decide to commit to that idea.

"My parents and I got to talk to Coach Luper a lot on my visit and he's a great guy" he said. "They told me I would have a chance if I could play cornerback so they want me to go to a camp and try a little bit of corner."

"We'll see how that goes and maybe I can get an offer as a corner because he told me he really wants me to play corner if I come to TCU."

So would the explosive offensive weapon consider moving to the defensive side of the ball?

"Me and my coaches and my dad have been talking about it" he said. "Of course I want to still try to play on the offensive side of the ball but three schools have told me the same thing now."

"OU and Tech have also told me the same thing, actually OU came by and told me that today" said Ivery. "I've been wanting to go to a school like those three so I would choose one of them and go with it if they offered."

With a handful of important summer camps coming up, Ivery hopes to show what TCU, OU and Tech want to see and earn scholarships from each school. If that happens, count on a commitment to one of them.

As he stated in an previous interview, Ivery plans on committing during senior night during the football season.

"I'm still planning on doing it on Senior night and that's sometime in November, our last home game."

Will the talented Sulphur Springs star impress enough at upcoming camps to earn the coveted offers he seeks? Stay logged on to HornedFrogBlitz.com to find out.
