Before committing to TCU in July, Alief (Texas) Taylor running back Trevorris Johnson saw his status go from unknown to must-have in a matter of months.
His first offer came in May from Utah. The Utes were quickly followed by Arkansas, Cal, Iowa State, Kansas, Wake Forest, and Boise State to name a few. However, TCU quickly became a favorite and he could not turn his attention away from the Horned Frogs. As signing day approaches he remains strong in his commitment.
"TCU was the school that came and recruited me really hard and showed me a lot of love," Johnson said. When I went out there on an unofficial visit I just fell in love with the place. It's a nice college town, small classroom sizes, and I just felt at home when I went out there. I think with all the freshmen they played and the new guys they got I think with all the experience we'll have next year we'll be able to do big things."
Another big factor in TCU's favor has been the relationship he has developed with the Horned Frog coaches.
"Me and the coaches from TCU have a wonderful relationship," Johnson said. "We talk almost every day. We talk about everything - school, life, football, how track season might be."
His commitment to the Horned Frogs has not kept recruiters away. It has been a madhouse in the Alief Taylor coaches office with LSU, Texas A&M, Stanford, TCU, Wake Forest, UTSA, and Cal a few of the programs to drop by in the past few weeks to see several Alief Taylor prospects.
The attention is to be expected with prospects such as Torrodney Prevot, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Chris Hardeman, and Keenen Brown also high level college prospects.
"I just feel like it's a wonderful experience for everybody," Johnson said. "I just feel like everybody has a chance to prove what they have and get their shine."
For Johnson, the Oregon Ducks have picked up their interest and have talked about him taking an official visit. Right now he only has his official visit to TCU for January 18 on the scheduled and even with the interest from the Ducks, he is not wavering from his commitment to TCU.
"Yeah it's solid," Johnson said.
