Tacoma, WA, offensive guard Quazzel White was part of a busy National Signing Day for TCU. He chose the Horned Frogs over offers from Arizona, Washington State, Oregon State, and Boise State. The 3-star, 6-foot-4, 305 pound guard is ranked the number 62 guard in the country, and is a player many in Fort Worth are very excited about.
Quazzel was gracious enough to give us a few minutes to answer a few questions about his recruitment, as well as to say a few words to his new fan base in Fort Worth.
For a little back story, TCU wasn’t always where White saw himself going. He originally committed to Washington State in November, but decommitted in January as interest from Gary Patterson and TCU picked up. We asked him a little bit about that process, and why he ultimately chose to become a Horned Frog.
You originally committed to Washington State back in November, when did you start to hear from TCU?
“In December, a couple of weeks after I committed to WSU.”
What was it, ultimately, that led you to choose TCU?
“The facility, coaching staff, connections with players, and most importantly the education and the program.”
Two other players, Aldontre Davis, and Terrell Cooper committed to TCU right around when you did on National Signing Day. Did you know they would be committing as well, or was it just a nice coincidence?
“Actually, I didn’t know, but they are two outstanding players and I can’t wait to join them in June. I believe the class is really slept on, and we are going to shock some people very soon.”
What would you say was your favorite part of the recruiting process?
“Most definitely all the visits, going to different states and having different colleges tell you why they want you. Also, getting mail used to make me excited. But it was also stressful, and I’m glad I signed to the best college in the Big 12. 🐸 Anyone who has the chance to have a recruiting process I hope they enjoy it because those were some of the most fun times of my life.”
What do you hope to get out of your time at TCU?
“My degree and relationships that’ll last forever. Hopefully, I’ll develop as a football player and will be looked at to play at a higher level.”
Last question, what would you like to say to all the TCU fans out there?
“It’s going to be one helluva ride! We are working for National Championships! GO FROGS!”
Thanks again to Quazzel for giving us a few minutes of his time and answering some questions. He’s a great young man, and we wish him nothing but the best at TCU, and in the future.
