What Makes Porter An Impact Player?

Toward the end of the 2013 season, Porter became the Frogs’ go-to receiver as he finished the final five games with 18 catches. Now entering his senior season, Porter looks to feed off his end of the year production in the new “air it out” offense TCU unveils this season under new offensive coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie.

Porter finished second on the team in receiving yardage with 435 yards; which was just five yards behind the leader Josh Doctson. However, Porter did finish with the most receiving touchdowns with 5.

Frog fans got to see a glimpse of what Porter can do in games against Kansas and West Virginia. Against the Jayhawks, Porter hauled in 4 catches for 118 yards and 1 score. He and quarterback/receiver Trevone Boykin was the only Frogs to record 100-yard receiving games in 2013. Two weeks later he recorded a career-high 8 receptions for 72 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Mountaineers.

During the spring, Porter was off to a very hot start in the Frogs’ new offensive scheme. In the new up-tempo offense, Porter quickly became the favorite target of TCU quarterbacks. His spring was cut short due to an injury but he’s 100-percent now and ready to be the Frogs’ leader at receiver. Let’s face it, 2013 was a down year for the Frogs’ receiving corp and if they are to improve this season, Porter is the one to lead them.
