TCU’s Top Targets Heading Into National Signing Day

TCU currently has the third-best class in the Big 12 and National Signing Day could solidify that with a couple of big signings.

TCU currently has 17 prospects committed. That means, simply, that there’s still some recruits they expect to add to this class, but space is getting very limited. This has been a really solid class for the Horned Frogs so far. They filled a couple of needs, bringing in help at wide receiver with 4 stars Jalen Reagor and Omar Manning and 3 star Kennedy Snell, as well as some much-needed size on the defensive line, with 3 stars Corey Bethley, George Ellis III, and Ezra Tu’ua. That doesn’t mean the work is complete for TCU, they’d still like to add more in the defensive backfield, as well as one or two more offensive lineman.

CURRENT CLASS NATIONAL RANK: 34TH

TCU has the third best class in the conference, led by the aforementioned 4 star wide outs, as well as two more 4 stars, guard Wes Harris, and quarterback Shawn Robinson. The recent commitments of Corey Bethley, Kerry Johnson, Christian Williams, and Nijeel Meeking have given this class a boost, but there’s still some top targets out there for the Horned Frogs.

TOP TARGETS REMAINING

Name Hometown POS POS Rank Stars Leaning
Todd Harris Plaquemine, LA S 11 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ LSU
Quazell White Tacoma, WA OG 63 ⭐⭐⭐ TCU
Michael Onyemaobi Temecula, CA ATH 38 ⭐⭐⭐ NEB
Elijah Walker Long Beach, CA S 3 ⭐⭐⭐ TCU

Harris is expected by pretty much everyone to stay home, and choose LSU on signing day. If he doesn’t it will be a shock, but the only other school I could see him choosing would be TCU. He’ll make his decision at 10:00 AM tomorrow morning, so stay tuned.

Quazell White should be a Horned Frog, if all things go as they’re expected to. Onyemaobi is a pretty heavy Nebraska lean, and while I wouldn’t count TCU out, don’t hold your breath. Lastly, Elijah Walker will be either Kansas State or TCU bound, and right now I think TCU will be the choice for the JUCO safety.

TCU isn’t used to exciting signing days, but they’ll be having one this year. Obviously, best case scenario is landing all of their final four targets, but I think two (the more realistic expectation) is still a very good finish to a very good class.

If anything interesting happens tomorrow, we’ll be here to cover it, and check back after NSD as we’ll cover the 2017 class and how it addresses the Horned Frogs’ needs.
