Auburn High's Echols-Luper joins father at TCU

Posted:
AUBURN, Ala. -

Cameron Echols-Luper, the athlete from Auburn High School, has officially inked his letter of intent. The former quarterback and defensive back is going to TCU as a wide receiver.

He signed his letter of intent for the Horned Frogs Wednesday morning. That will pair him with his father Curts Luper, the former Auburn assistant who is now the Wide Receivers coach at TCU.

For months, Cameron Echols-Luper was committed to Texas A&M. He says there were many reasons why he flipped to TCU.

"There was a lot of stuff going on and a lot of dishonesty," said Echols-Luper. "I really had to be selfish and explore more of my options. What led me to TCU was I really wanted to play for my dad. Also, early playing time. I knew TCU has a great program. We're one step away from getting to Pasadena."

Echols-Luper told his high school coach Tim Carter back in the summer that he wanted to go back to Texas to play his college football. They both worked all year long to find the right place.
