Interest Picking Up For TCU Commit

Arlington (TX) Bowie receiver Tony James is starting to hear from several others.

TCU has landed nine commitments for their 2015 class and of those nine players, four of them are receivers. The first receiver to commit to the Frogs was Arlington (TX) Bowie standout Tony James.

James was one of three TCU commitments who participated in the Dallas NFTC last week in Desoto. James proved to be one of the top receivers in attendance by running crisp routes, beating defenders and most importantly, catching the football.

"I did good at the one-on-one's and I didn't drop anything," he said. "I thought I did pretty good."

James has stayed firm with his commitment to TCU since he gave his verbal to the Frogs the same day his future team took on Baylor in the home finale.

Since that time James hasn't added an offer, but several programs are showing interest. That interest has increased in recent weeks according to the nation's No. 71 rated receiver.

"I'm starting to hear a little bit from Baylor, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and LSU a little bit," he said. "All of them want me to come down to visit; they want me to come down this summer. They also said they're going to come by in the spring to look at me."

Aside from the attention he receives from others, James keeps in constant contact with TCU.

"I talk to them every other day; I go down there and see them and they send me letters and talk to me on Twitter," he said. "I talk to them a lot. Usually it's Coach Burns, Coach Meacham or Coach Cumbie."

James also had a chance to watch a few practices this spring for the Frogs. Like all of the other offensive commitments, James was intrigued to see what the new offense had in store. Upon first look, he sees it as a scheme he's excited to be a part of.

"I went to a practice to see what they were doing," he said. "I like it because at receiver that's what you want to do; you want to spread the field out and go. You want it to be fast like that. I really like the new scheme and what they're doing with the offense."
