WR Chase Van Wagoner has Committed to TCU

Scout has comments from wide receiver Chase Van Wagoner, who has just committed to TCU in the Big 12 Conference...

Chase Van Wagoner, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound wide receiver from Lovejoy (Texas) racked up around 30 offers, but on Saturday he ended his recruitment with a commitment to the TCU Horned Frogs

Van Wagoner likes the combination of things at TCU and that helped lead to his decision to pick the Horned Frogs over his abundance of other offers. 

"(It is a) great education as well as super competitive football at the same time," Van Wagoner said of his reasoning behind committing to TCU.  "(It is) close to home so family and friends can make home games and close away games, (and it has) been a dream school since I was young."

Van Wagoner really likes the coaching staff in Forth Worth and he is looking forward to playing in the fast-paced offense. 

"Coach (Sonny) Cumbie (TCU Offensive Coordinator) has been nothing but great throughout the whole process," Van Wagoner said. 

"They care about the players lives on and off the field more than their own jobs, but at the same time they will shoot you straight when needed and they make sure the athletes are also enjoying their 4-5 years there."

As a junior in 2016, Van Wagoner had a breakout season securing 41 receptions for 759 yards and 10 touchdowns. He earned 15-5A First Team All-District honors for his efforts.

"I thank my parents, I thank God, I thank my coaches, and my personal trainers that have helped me improve my game and impress scouts when they come to see me in spring practices or games. I thank the man upstairs for everything have, everything I do, and everything I can be."
