Don't Forget About Kyle Porter

Three-Star running back Kyle Porter is being pursued by schools such as Baylor, Oregon, Texas, California, Maryland and TCU to name a few. The Katy (Texas) standout back checks in at 5-foot-10, 189-pounds.

Kyle Porter is the No 67 ranked running back in the class of 2016. Porter checks in as the No 12 ranked back in the Midland Region and the No 11 ranked back in the state of Texas. He has been incredibly productive over the last two seasons rushing for over 2,800 yards and 40 touchdowns. The recruiting process is starting to heat up for Porter and his family.

”It’s pretty hectic but fun at the same time for us,” Porter said. “Well, lately about five schools have been recruiting me pretty hard. In Texas it’s Texas, Baylor and TCU and out of state Oregon and Arkansas.”

Porter isn’t exactly sure where all his visits will be but he has a couple in mind.

”Not sure about during the season yet but I want to go visit Baylor and Arkansas soon because I haven’t been there yet,” Porter said.

Porter has built up a pretty good relationship with the Texas coaching staff.

”I’d say it’s a good relationship,” Porter said. “We stay in contact as best we can and they aren’t pressuring me.”

Porter is not sure about a time table for his decision. He is going to continue to take his time and pray on it and will hopefully know soon.
