Austin Impresses At TCU

South Grand Prairie 2015 receiver Jaelan Austin is landing on the radar of several programs including TCU.

South Grand Prairie is home to one of the fastest rising 2014 recruits in Texas with defensive back Jason Hall racking up offers. While Hall drew the most interest in the spring with several programs stopping by, they also caught a glimpse of 2015 prospect Jaelan Austin.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder is quickly becoming one of the more prominent recruits from the Lone Star State in the 2015 class. Schools such as Texas, Texas A&M, TCU, LSU, Oregon, Oklahoma and several others have already started to show interest.

"Tulsa has offered, Texas is close to offering, Iowa and I'm trying to close in on Oklahoma," he said. "Those schools are showing the most interest and LSU, Oregon, Nebraska and Texas A&M are showing strong interest too."

Austin has been busy this summer hitting as many one-day camps as his schedule allows. He recently made the short drive over to Ft. Worth to attend a TCU camp. Austin walked away from the camp as one of the top performers on the day. He ran an impressive 4.53 forty and was easily one of the best route runners in attendance and displayed excellent hands.

Austin quickly drew the attention of the Frogs coaches.

"I got a lot of positive feedback, they told me to keep working harder and keep trying to get better," Austin said.

TCU, like the other programs Austin previously mentioned, started to heavily recruit him this spring.

"They came to me in spring ball along with all of the other coaches and they've been recruiting me pretty heavily," Austin said.

At the moment, Austin admits he doesn't know much about the program or the campus other than what he's seen in the past playing basketball. However, he quickly noted that what he saw on Friday with the stadium and indoor facility was much better than he expected.

"I haven't really been out here much but just for basketball," he said. "I've never really been on campus; I didn't know it was this nice."

Austin plans to make a west coast trip this summer and plans to check out UCLA, USC and Oregon.
