DeSoto defensive back Nick Orr commits to TCU
DeSoto defensive back Nick Orr has orally committed to TCU, according to DeSoto coach Claude Mathis.
Considered a two-star recruit by Rivals.com, Orr (5-10, 170) picked the Horned Frogs over offers from Baylor, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Texas Tech and others.
"He's as good as it gets," Mathis said of the four-year starter. "I know he's kind of flown under the radar until recently, when he went to all these camps, but he should be a four-star kid. He's that good."
Last year, Orr was part of a defense that led DeSoto to the 5A Division I semifinals. He was named honorable mention all-state, with 87 tackles, two sacks, three interceptions, three fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles.
Oral commitments are non-binding; the first day a football recruit from the Class of 2014 can sign a National Letter of Intent is Feb. 5, 2014.
