Golden Coast Backer Hearing From TCU

TCU doesn't go west too often to recruit but when they do, they usually land a really good player for their troubles. Will the Frogs tap into the California's bountiful recruiting grounds again in 2014?

TCU needs linebackers. Although it's been said over and over again, it bears repeating; TCU needs linebackers! Because of this, the Frogs have travelled all the way to Bellflower, CA in hopes of landing much needed linebacker help. We caught up with the man they went to see, Chandler Lenui, to get the scoop.

"It pretty much went down late a few nights ago" said Lenui regarding the way he received his TCU offer. "TCU wanted to talk to me and let me know that they were going to offer me and that I was a top prospect on their radar so that's how everything got started."

"They came to two of my practices and they liked my energy out there so they went ahead and pulled the string on offering me."

With TCU assistant head coach Eddie Williamson on the job, the task will be to sell a California kid on the way football is played in the state of Texas.

"I don't know a lot about TCU except they are a good program, they're well organized and it's football country out there."

With 7 offers on the table from TCU, Iowa State, Kansas, Washington State, Nevada, San Jose State and Fresno State, Lenui is in no hurry to make his decision. As a matter of fact, he may not even take visits this summer.

"Right now, I'm just going with the flow and I don't know yet how it's going to end up" he said. "I'm just going to train over the summer and I'll take some visits at the end of the summer, right before the season starts."

"I'm waiting until signing day to make my decision and I plan on taking all five of my visits before I decide."

So will TCU get one of the coveted visits?

"Yes sir, I want to see what they're like up close."

It's a long time until signing day and only time will tell just how serious the interest is from both sides. Will the 26th ranked MLB in the nation make it in for an official visit? Keep it locked here for the latest.
