There has been little question about the interest that the 5-foot-9, 164-pound athlete and defensive back Taylor Charbonnet has had in Texas Tech. With his brother there, the 5-foot-9, 164-pounder has had a chance to take in several Red Raider football games as a fan rather than a recruit.
That all took another turn this week as the talented Houston-area speedster picked up an offer from Texas Tech. Charbonnet, the brother of Daniel Charbonnet that is at Tech, definitely has a high interest in the Red Raiders with their offer in hand.
"I spoke with the recruiting coordinator today and then I called the defensive coordinator (Lyle Setencich) who told me that the offer was in the mail from Texas Tech," Charbonnet said. "They're recruiting me as a cornerback. I went to their camp and they asked me about receiver, but I told them I wanted to play cornerback."
"After the UTEP camp I just went to today, I got a text message from them saying that they were offering as well."
Right now, with two Big 12 offers from Texas Tech and Kansas, Charbonnet says that those schools are at the top of his favorites list. The Jayhawks are certainly very much in the mix as well.
"I talk with coach John Reagan a lot at Kansas and everybody seems to have great things to say about their head coach there," Charbonnet said. "I think I might take an unofficial visit to Kansas this summer."
Charbonnet says he's not ready to commit just yet and looks to take official visits during the fall before making a decision.
"I just want to get out and see some campuses before I make a decision," Charbonnet said. "I may not take all of them, but I'm looking to just see some places up close before I make a decision."
