TCU Commit Could Visit Austin

TCU commitment Emmanuel Porter talks about the Army combine, a junior day invite and his two favorite schools.

Emmanuel Porter chopped his feet, putting in work at the Alamodome, with the TCU commitment trying to attract attention at the U.S. Army All-American Combine.

"I'm just trying to be seen nationally by a lot of people who haven't seen me," Porter said. "Really, that's it. I want to show them what I can do."

What Porter can do is cause issues for any defensive back unwise enough to try and body up on the 6-foot-5 wideout.

"I would say I'm a physical receiver," Porter said. "I love to get physical with my blocking, and just be physical with the defensive backs.

"I just want to make them fear me," Porter said. "After that, the game comes easy, if I can get them to back down."

The Dallas Lincoln standout, who said he would rather run a post route than any other — "Because I can make [DBs] look stupid, mix them up a little bit, turn them around" — was noticed early on in the process by the Horned Frogs, who were rewarded for their due diligence with a commitment. But the attention for Porter is intensifying, headlined by a camp invite to Oregon and a potential invitation to Texas's second Junior Day. If the invite is made official, Porter said he plans to make the latter trip.

"I was like, this is crazy," Porter said of the invite. "I really didn't expect that to happen, and when it happened, I was excited. That's unbelievable, really."

But the Longhorns face a battle if they want to land Porter's services. The wideout actually grew up liking Oklahoma and TCU.

"Mostly Oklahoma, though," Porter said. "I guess when Adrian Peterson was there, I don't know, I just became a big Oklahoma fan.

"I still like [OU]," Porter said. "I like TCU and Oklahoma. Those would be my top two."

Porter said the most important thing he was looking for was a strong school academically.

"Most likely it would be academic-wise and what the system fit is, where I can be a better player," Porter said. "It's academics mostly, though."
