Flowers "Blessed" To Be A Frog

TCU added the 11th commitment to their 2015 class on Tuesday night with Arlington Sam Houston speedster Darrion Flowers committing to the Frogs.

TCU added their 11th commitment to their 2015 class on Tuesday when Arlington (TX) Sam Houston speedster Darrion Flowers committed to the Horned Frogs.

Flowers chose TCU over offers from Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Cal, SMU, and Houston among others. For Flowers, the chance to play so close to home at TCU was too good to pass up.

"I chose them because I wanted to keep my mom close to me," Flowers said. "I just didn't want something bad to happen and me be far away and above all it's just a good school. It's a blessing; I'm close to my mom so if she needs me I'm not too far away. It's also a good school and I think it was a wise choice."

TCU offered just a couple of days prior to his commitment. Much of Flowers attention came after posting blistering times in the 100-meter as he brought home the class 5A state championship with a 10.39. Flowers also holds the fastest 100-meter time in the nation with a 10.27.

Flowers was recruited to TCU by new cornerbacks coach Kenny Perry, which is where he's expected to play for the Frogs. The position is relatively new to Flowers, but he had a feeling it would be the position he'd play at the next level.

"It's new to me but I always had a thought that I would be playing corner in the future," he said.

Flowers plans to attend the Frogs' June 7th camp but in the meantime he will also run for Team USA this summer. His first meet is set for next month in Albuquerque.
