It’s never easy to lose the way TCU did in the Big 12 championship game. Oklahoma won the game 41-17, and didn’t allow TCU to score a point in the second half of the game. Thankfully though there is always recruiting to help pick up the spirits of a team and fan base. On Sunday night, the Horned Frogs received some very welcome news, as junior college tight end Pro Wells committed to TCU. Wells is an incredibly intriguing prospect, and on top of that is a sure-fire, first teamer for the all-name team.

THE WELLS FILE
|Pro Wells||TE||St. Petersburg, FL|| 6-4
Wells is the 20th commit for TCU’s 2018 class, and the first tight end commit. Wells plays his junior college football at Northwest Mississippi Community College, but is originally from St. Petersburg, FL. He is the first commit from the state of Florida for TCU’s 2018 class. With this commitment TCU’s 2018 class is ranked third in the Big 12, and 19th nationally.
Wells picked TCU over offers from Akron and Bowling Green. He has also been receiving interest from Rutgers and Auburn, but neither school has extended an offer at this time. Wells originally signed with Marshall coming out of high school, but ended up going the JUCO route. TCU’s inside receivers coach Jarrett Anderson was the primary recruiter for Wells, and deserves a ton of credit for finding this under the radar product.
Wells is an exciting prospect from a potential standpoint. Up until his senior year in high school, Wells only played basketball. After one year of high school football, and his time spent in junior college, Wells is one of the highest upside prospects in the junior college ranks. He has great speed for his size, and is a natural pass catcher. He regularly catches the ball away from his body, and even flashes the ability to bring it in with one hand.
The best thing about his game though is his willingness, and ability to block. Wells ability to be useful in the blocking game will greatly aid him in staying on the field full-time. Wells still needs to work on his route running. Again though, for only playing football for three years Wells shows a ton of potential.
TCU is making an effort to get the tight end more involved in their future offensive plans, and Wells has all the tools to be an impact player as soon as next year.
