Rushing To Take Visits

Fort Lauderdale, Florida receiver George Rushing will visit TCU at the end of the month.

TCU has shown in recent years that they don't give up on recruits just because he may be committed to another program. In the month of January, the staff has flipped several prospects in recent years and they are working hard at it again for the 2014 class.

Among the players they are giving a hard push for is Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons receiver George Rushing. The 6-foot-2, 189-pounder has been a commitment to Louisville since May, but with Charlie Strong leaving the Cardinals to take over as head coach at Texas, Rushing has started to revisit his options.

Among those options is TCU, who Rushing says has been in the picture for a little over a month. It looks like the interest can be credited to new offensive coordinator Doug Meacham and Curtis Luper.

"Coach Meacham is recruiting me," he said. "He offered me at the beginning of December."

LSU and Wisconsin are two other programs the three-star receiver plans to visit this month; visiting Wisconsin on the 17th and LSU on the 24th.

The Frogs will get his final visit, which will be a mid-week visit for Rushing.

"I'm visiting there from the 29th-31st," Rushing said.

Rushing finished his senior season with 49 catches for 670 yards and 13 touchdowns. With 4.5 speed, Rushing has ideal weight and speed to be a go-to receiver at the next level.

The Frogs are in the hunt to find one, maybe two more receivers to add to their 2014 class. With prospects such as four-star Emmanuel Porter and Georgia sleeper Caleb Scott still on the radar, the Frogs are primed to add a presence at outside receiver.

TCU will have some work to do on Rushing however as he's never visited the Ft. Worth campus. When asked if he knew much about the Big 12 program, Rushing didn't have much to say.

"Not really," he said of TCU.
