TCU Among Early Favorites For Strickland

Dallas Skyline receiver Carlos Strickland will visit TCU this weekend.

Dallas (TX) Skyline is a regular stop for college recruiters every year. Regardless of position, the Raiders tend to produce some of the top players at their respective positions each class.

The 2015 class is loaded with talent and headlining that talented group is receiver Carlos Strickland. The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder is currently rated as a four-star and nation's No. 9 receiver prospect in the nation for the 2015 class by Scout.com.

Strickland has hauled in offers from SMU, LSU, TCU, Oklahoma State, Illinois and Texas Tech. Additional schools such as Texas A&M and Cal could be the next programs to extend an offer to the talented receiver.

"I've got six offers now," he said. "I've been talking to other schools and they're talking about offering me like (Texas) A&M and Cal. I've been talking to TCU a lot."

Strickland says A&M has invited him to College Station for a visit which he feels the Aggies will extend an offer while he's in town.

"They want me to come for a visit and probably come down for a basketball game and junior day," he said. "They'll probably offer when I visit."

One team in particular has shown Strickland the most interest early on; TCU.

Even though they've offered me, I've been communicating with them a lot and I'm going to visit them this weekend when they play Kansas (in basketball)."

Strickland says he stays in contact with TCU assistant coach Curtis Luper the most out of any coach recruiting him. The two discuss how well he would fit in with the Frogs' program.

"He's just telling me that they're rebuilding because they didn't do too good last year and they have some good quarterbacks coming in," he said. "He said he wants me to come in and play for them. They've got a young team and he said he wants me to come help the rebuilding process."

Strickland says Baylor, Washington State and Oklahoma are additional programs that would like him to visit. At the moment, he says three teams stick out above the others.

"TCU and LSU, I like them two a lot," he said. "I like Texas Tech a lot too; Coach Morris wants me to come down for a visit. But, I'd say TCU, LSU and Tech are my favorites right now. They like to keep in contact with me and they're always telling me how I'll fit in and how they really want me. A lot of coaches tell you that, but I can feel a little difference with them."
