Local RB Wants TCU Offer

Ft. Worth Dunbar running back Taylor Martin is hoping TCU comes through with an offer.

Ft. Worth (TX) Dunbar 2015 running back Taylor Martin was one of the top running backs in the state for the 2013 season. The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder rushed for nearly 1,600 yards and scored 23 touchdowns for the Wildcats in their 10-1 season.

Martin was one of the top running backs in attendance at last week's Next Level Athlete Combine held at L.D. Bell high school.

"I thought I did pretty good, it was pretty challenging but I think I did everything I wanted to achieve," Martin said.

Martin is already receiving interest from several programs including TCU, Illinois, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Kansas State and Utah State.

"I'm hearing from OSU, K-State and some more schools," he said. "Those schools have come up to talk to me. Mizzou also came up to talk to me but they're waiting on me to take my SAT too."

TCU is showing the most interest out of those schools according to Martin. The talented running back was one of over twenty 2015 prospects who visited TCU's campus last Sunday for the Frogs' first junior day.

"It was cool, I got to see all the coaching staff and I hung out with Jordan (Moore)," he said. "They said they might give me an offer so I'm hoping I get one."

Martin admits if the Frogs do extend an offer, he'll waste little time in making a commitment. What about TCU stands out?

"It just feels like home," Martin said. "I've been to TCU ever since I was little and it's really close to home. I've also gotten real close to Coach Meacham."
