Agholor To Visit Texas

Texas has stretched its nets far in its search for the nation's top players. One such target is Berkeley Preparatory School (Fla.) athlete Nelson Agholor, who plans on visiting the Longhorns soon.

"I'm going to be in Texas on (Monday), and I'll visit TCU first," Agholor said. "Then I'll visit UT, maybe the day after. I plan on flying from TCU to Texas.

"I don't have any expectations going in," Agholor said. "I've met both coaches and right now I'm in the process of trying to have conversations to get to know both staffs better."

Agholor is any coach's dream, a fantastic athlete with great athleticism in a 6-foot-1 frame. That means that different coaches see him playing different spots in college.

"Everyone's recruiting me as an athlete," Agholor said. "They all have different opinions. I don't have any plans as far as position. I just want to play the position where I can play the longest and help my team out the quickest."

Agholor's best fit might be as a ball-hawking safety, though the Longhorns have said they think he could play at cornerback as well.

Agholor said he's approaching the Texas trip as "somebody trying to find a home at the next level."

"The bottom line is that I'm not going anywhere as a 'Florida prospect,'" Agholor said. "I just want to find the right place for me.

"Both the schools that I'm seeing have wonderful universities," Agholor said. "TCU, first of all, is a program that's on the rise. You hear a lot of wonderful things, and they have great coaches. Texas is a program with a great tradition, and the coaches represent themselves in such a positive manner."

Agholor said he didn't have any sort of list of favorite schools, nor does he have any timeline for his decision.

"Everything I do is day-by-day," Agholor said. "That's how I plan to keep on doing it.
