Strickland Recaps TCU Visit

Dallas (TX) Skyline receiver Carlos Strickland recently visited TCU.

TCU has started off their 2015 class with a bang with seven commitments already in the fold that currently ranks them at No. 15 in the Scout.com team rankings. The Frogs are also in the hunt for several other top prospects that have them among their favorites.

Among those players is Dallas Skyline receiver Carlos Strickland.

The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder is regarded as one of the top receiver prospects in the nation; rated as a four-star and ranked as the No. 14 receiver in the country. Strickland is also in the Scout.com Top 300 and currently holds offers California, LSU, Illinois, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU and Texas Tech.

Strickland hasn't had much of an opportunity to attend junior day events at various programs thanks to a busy track schedule. However, he has able to break away from his busy schedule on Sunday to make his way to Ft. Worth.

"It was great, I really liked the facilities," Strickland said of the TCU visit. "They have the cryo-chamber, I think that's one of the only ones Dallas. Coach P was also really cool and so was the whole coaching staff."

TCU has already secured two receiver commitments for their 2015 with Tony James and Jarrison Stewart who are both expected to play slot receiver for the Frogs. The Frogs are still looking for a tall outside receiver to compliment the class and the coaching staff made it known that Strickland is their guy.

"They're telling me that I would fit in perfect," he said. "They're implementing a new system with four wideouts on the offense and they've already got two slots so they were telling me that I'd fit in perfect for the outside. They said if I go there that I'd be the missing piece.

"They told me that I would be the perfect fit along with the Dallas Lincoln receiver so they said if they got me it would be perfect."

In January, Strickland named TCU among his favorites along with LSU and Texas Tech. After his visit to the Ft. Worth campus, he still says the Frogs are among his top schools.

"I feel even better and comfortable about them now," Strickland said after his visit. "They're still real high for me."
