TCU Looking Good To Proche

Dallas Prime Prep Academy receiver James Proche likes what he sees in TCU.

Dallas (TX) Prime Prep Academy receiver James Proche currently holds five offers but after an impressive performance at the Dallas Nike Football Training Camp, Proche should see an increase in his recruitment.

Things have already started to pick up for the nation's No. 46 receiver prospect prior to his outstanding performance. Last week he picked up his most recent offer as the Houston Cougars joined the fold. Proche says others are showing him strong interest.

"Recruiting is picking up, I got offered by Houston last week so I'm really looking forward to my recruiting to start rolling now," he said. "Baylor, Texas Tech, LSU have shown interest. Alabama said they're coming out for spring practices."

While most prospects use the spring to venture out to various junior days and spring practices, Proche has kept it low key as he has put all of his focus not on himself, but his team.

"This spring I haven't, we've been doing a lot of team bonding so I'm just spending time with my team," he said. "We have a lot of new players so we want to get that chemistry right."

TCU was one of the first programs to offer Proche a scholarship. The Frogs offered the 6-foot, 180-pound standout last summer and have built a great relationship throughout the process. In fact, Proche admitted if he had to name a favorite at the moment, TCU sits at the top.

"I've been talking a lot with Coach Patterson lately and TCU right now would be my favorite," he said. "I have a great relationship with Coach Patterson, Coach Cumbie and Coach Meacham and they have the new offense; it's perfect for me."

Proximity, style of offense, academics and tradition are the reasons Proche says TCU stands out at the moment.

"The offense and it's close to home," Proche said about TCU. "They put players in the league and prepare you for life after football. My school is a small school and they have a small campus so it would be easy to adapt to them."

Proche is looking forward to his team getting started with spring ball in the coming weeks. Prime Prep didn't have spring ball last year and Proche felt it affected his recruitment somewhat. He's hoping that all changes this spring.

"Last year we didn't do spring so I really didn't get a full recruitment so I feel if I have a good spring I could blow up," he finished.
