Cavness says TCU

Missouri City (Texas) Marshall running back Jamarion Cavness decided this past Monday that his recruiting process had gone far enough.
After picking up an early offer from TCU, the 5-foot-9, 170-pounder made his decision to keep his college days in the Lone Star state.
"I committed to TCU on Monday," Cavness said. "I just wanted everyone to know that I am a Horned Frog."
Cavness was a first-team all-district member. He became the first commitment for TCU in the 2007 class. He was listed as one of the top running backs to watch in the state of Texas for this year's recruiting process.
In 2006, Marshall had several prospects sign on the dotted line for Division I schools.
Coach Dennis Brantley said that TCU was not the only offer. Iowa State and Indiana had both offered the talented young man. There was also a verbal offer in from Central Florida and growing interest from Oklahoma State.
Brantley says he's not looking around though.
"From what I know, he's a solid commitment," Brantley said. "You'd have to ask him, but this is not something that I see changing."
There is no doubt in Brantley's mind that it's a big pickup for TCU.
"He's a great running back who can stop and start very quickly, has great vision, and really does a lot of things really well," Brantley said. "When he gets the ball, he can take it the distance."
Quarterback James Thomas (UTEP), Chris Herrera (Mississippi State), Dimitri Lott (Texas Tech), Brandon Cooper (Mississippi State), Sean Estelle (Texas Tech), Marcus Washington (Mississippi State), and Royzell Smith (UTEP) are 2006 prospects that signed with Division I schools.
