One of those names in attendance was Dallas Pinkston defensive end Trey Carter. The big 6-foot-4, 250-pounder was offered by the Frogs in July after an impressive camp performance.
Although the Frogs lost to the Tigers 37-27, Carter was still impressed with the Frogs performance. He just wished he could've got on the field and helped.
"I thought they did well. LSU linemen were a lot bigger," Carter said of the TCU game. "They couldn't get much pressure without blitzing. I wanted to get out there and help them."
Carter told HornedFrogBlitz.com a few weeks ago that the Frogs were at the top of his list above Southern Miss and Illinois. Since then, he's added even more interest from some programs across the nation.
"A lot of teams (have shown interest). Kansas State, Washington Huskies, Tulane, Tennessee, Oregon, Florida Gators, Arizona, Texas Tech, New Mexico, Texas A&M," Carter said of new teams showing interest.
Carter reports that three of those programs have recently extended offers; Tulane, Ole Miss and Tennessee. The others should be following soon.
"The rest of the teams said they are going to offer after two or three games," Carter said.
With more teams showing interest, are the Frogs still at the top of his list.
"Yes they are still up there," Carter said of TCU.
Pinkston started their 2013 season last week with a big 34-13 victory over Fort Worth Carter-Riverside. Carter was unstoppable in the game, recording 10 tackles, 3.5 sacks and 2 blocked passes. All while nursing a slight injury.
"I did all of it on a strained hamstring the whole game, I was still in recovery but I had to push through it," he said.
Carter and his Pinkston teammates travel to Ft. Worth this Thursday to battle the Ft. Worth Polytechnic Parrots. He does not have plans to attend any college games this weekend.
