Porter Has Tough Decision Ahead

The TCU Horned Frogs were the first program to offer Emanuel Porter and that could still come into play down the stretch as signing day approaches.

It's been a roller coaster ride for Dallas Lincoln star receiver Emanuel Porter. The 6'4" 190 pound playmaker was originally committed to TCU after the Horned Frogs were the first program to offer him. In June, Porter switched his commitment and gave a verbal pledge to the Texas Longhorns. Now, with so much uncertainty in Austin, the Lincoln star is once again weighing his options.

With the Mack Brown saga playing out in Austin, Porter has decided to at least take another look at TCU in case things don't go according to Hoyle for the Longhorns. HornedFrogBlitz.com caught up with the young receiver to get his thoughts on his visit this past weekend to Fort Worth.

"It was really good, I had a good time this weekend" said Porter.

When asked if he was able to spend much time with other TCU commits and if he clicked with them, he simply replied "Yes sir.". With Porter still committed to Texas, the Horned Frogs have some ground to make up. So just what is it that he's hoping transpires in Austin to help him finalize his decision?

"I really don't know what's going to happen but I'm just trying to see who's going to come in" he said. "I want to see what they're going to bring to the table at Texas and we'll see where it goes from there."

Speaking of coaching changes, TCU has made headlines of their own in the last couple of weeks. With the hiring of new Offensive Coordinator Doug Meacham and the arrival of Sonny Cumbie as the Frogs' new QB coach, the offense should be much more potent in 2014.

With an offense primed to throw the ball more, a prospect like Porter could make a huge impact early. While fans in Fort Worth are excited about the new hires, Porter says it won't be a factor in his decision.

"No sir, not really" responded Porter when asked if the new offense could play a factor in his mind. "I just want to go to a great program that will make me the best player I can be and get my education."

While it looks like Texas holds the advantage at the moment, Porter is looking at every angle to make sure he makes the best choice for himself.

While it's a tough decision, it's even tougher for the big receiver to put into words when trying to describe the dilemma he faces.

When asked if Texas and TCU are even or if on team is ahead of the other at this point, Porter paused.

"Umm, I don't know, I really don't know right now" he said. "I really haven't thought about it like that when you put it that way; I haven't thought about that."

With so much riding on the Texas coaching change, including Porter's decision, the four star pass catcher sounds like he's ready to be done with this process.

"I'm really just watching what's going on down there and hopefully, with their decision, I'll have my decision made soon." Will he stick with his pledge to Texas or will he make one final switch before signing day and decide to call Fort Worth home? Stay logged on to find out.
