TCU added the third commitment to their 2015 class on Saturday with Arlington Bowie wide receiver Tony James giving his verbal to the Frogs.

James joins Breylin Mitchell and Alec Dunham in the 2015 class.

Currently rated as the No. 38 receiver in the nation by Scout.com, James is a do-everything player for Bowie. Last season as a sophomore James played quarterback and led the Volunteers to the district championship. As a junior, James played quarterback and receiver for Bowie. He responded by throwing for 621 yards with 12 touchdowns and 0 interceptions, catching 23 passes for 519 yards with 5 scores, and rushing for 615 yards and 8 more touchdowns on the season.

James said the "family" feel was the biggest reason for his decision to commit to TCU.

"I really like TCU, their football program and they're a family," James said. "They're like family, a home away from home and they were the first school to give me the opportunity. What really made me commit was they're close to home and my parents can come to my games."

James was recruited to TCU by Rusty Burns and Kenny Perry, his former head coach at Bowie. Needless to say, James said his former coach was excited to receive the news.

"I was supposed to be going to the game, but I'm going out of town," James said. "He (Perry) was very excited when I told him."
