In the world of recruiting, sometimes players slip through the cracks for various reasons. In some cases, these players sometimes go into their senior seasons without holding an offer which is a rarity in today's era of recruiting.
Some are just waiting for that one chance. For Ft. Worth (TX) Eastern Hills athlete Antjwuan Strahan, he's hoping that chance comes soon.
The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder lines up at quarterback for the Highlanders and is regarded as one of the top athletes in Ft. Worth. A three-year starter, Strahan totaled over 1,500 yards of offense in 2013 en route to District 6-4A honors.
At the moment, Strahan's recruitment has been relatively quiet but he hopes to change that with a busy summer camp schedule. He'll visit TCU on July 18th.
"I'm trying to go to as many as possible; I know a lot are in mid-July," he said. "I know I'm going to Baylor and I'll see what's up with A&M. There are a lot of schools."
Strahan, who also boasts 4.4 speed, is on a mission to show programs his ability outside of quarterback. He admits his best position is receiver, which is what he played his entire life before being handed the reins of Eastern Hills' offense his sophomore year.
"I understand it because I play quarterback," Strahan said of playing receiver. "I know where a quarterback would want me to be as far as coming out of my break. Receiver is what I used to play before; I played receiver all of my life until my sophomore year when they put me at quarterback."
TCU appears to be showing the most interest of any school according to Strahan. As a local product, Strahan says it would be a dream come true to have the opportunity to play for the hometown Frogs.
"TCU, I've heard a little from Oklahoma but especially TCU," he said. "It would be a dream come true, I grew up in Ft. Worth. It'd be a blessing going to TCU."
For now, Strahan just hopes to make enough of an impression on the Frogs' coaching staff later this month to garner an offer.
Although Strahan likes the thought of playing close to home, his biggest factor in choosing a program is how it prepares him after his time spent on the gridiron.
"I want a place that prepares me for life after football," he said.
