Springs One to Watch for 2014

Springs One to Watch for 2014

Programs across the country have taken notice of the San Antonio area product.

The good thing about recruiting is that it never ends. Just when you think you know about all of the top prospects for each class, another prospect emerges and makes a name for himself. Arrion Springs, out of San Antonio Roosevelt High School, has officially arrived on the scene.

With a Texas Tech offer already in hand, and with heavy interest from every Big 12 school in the conference, Springs is a name to know for the class of 2014. However, it might just be an SEC team that wins the young prospect over. HornedFrogBlitz.com caught up with Springs to get his thoughts on the recent TCU camp, what schools are in the hunt and where he projects at the next level.

"It was pretty fun (at the TCU camp)" said Springs. "I got to see the coaches first hand so I got to see how they coach and how they align you"

Coming in at 5'11" and 190 pounds, the San Antonio product brings good size to the defensive backfield. He ran a 4.4 in front of the TCU staff but will he outgrow the corner position?

Springs says college coaches like his potential as a safety.

"I worked out at safety for them (TCU staff) because there were a lot of corners there" said Springs. "All of the Big 12 schools that I'm talking to like me at safety anyway so that's where I worked out.

When I went to the Florida camp, they wanted to see me at corner so I decided I would give it a try."

With all of the early attention, which school is showing him the most love?

"Really all of the Big 12 schools, Florida, and some Pac-12 schools" said Springs. "Texas Tech is my only offer so far but Florida said they were going to recruit me very heavily."

Does that mean that Florida is standing out to the young star?

"Mainly Florida and USC are standing out to me" he said. "I know about TCU some because I follow them throughout the season. They're in my top 5 or 6."

While it's early in the process, Springs seems to be a rising star. Stay logged on to HornedFrogBlitz.com to see which programs step up with an offer. It won't be long before they're rolling in.
