Kansas QB solid with commitment to TCU
Tyler Matthews may be committed to Texas Christian University, but that hasn't stopped other programs from letting him know they're interested. If anything, things have only intensified for the 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback from McPherson (KS) High School. "I feel like it's gotten crazier since I've verbaled," Matthews said. "More schools, bigger schools, coaches have been calling my coach quite a bit." Matthews verbaled to TCU in early February while on an unofficial visit to the Fort Worth campus for the program's Junior Day - shortly after receiving a scholarship offer. And though letters show up every day from the likes of Alabama, Minnesota, Stanford, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, Kansas State, Harvard, Oregon and Vanderbilt, he's as excited with his decision as ever. Recently, he and his family made the six-hour road trip yet again to take in the Horned Frogs' annual Spring Game. "It was awesome," Matthews said. "I'm just ready to get down there (after) watching them get after it. We're going to be good this year." One benefit of committing so early in the recruiting process is that while other prospects are filling their calendars with plans to attend summer camps and various combines, in the hopes of landing offers, Matthews will be focusing on improving with his team. For example, he and the Bullpups are looking to attend numerous 7-on-7 camps during the summer to test their abilities against other schools in the state and region. "Really, it's about the team," he explained. "We're going to try and win the state championship next year with this team. We've got a lot of great guys coming back." Matthews figures to be one of the top junior quarterback prospects in the region when the dust settles. Stay tuned to Scout.com for further updates on him throughout the summer.
