On Saturday, the TCU Horned Frogs hosted their second junior day with about eight 2013 prospects in attendance. Among the attendees was Arlington (TX) High linebacker Sammy Douglas.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder also watched TCU's practice Saturday morning and came away impressed with his visit to TCU.

"I loved it, everything," Douglas said. "The practice was fast paced with good communication, everything. Everyone was talking to me like I've been there for two years."

Earlier tonight after returning home from his visit, Douglas called Coach Patterson to get the news he'd been waiting to hear. He was officially offered by TCU.

Douglas wasted little time making his commitment to become the Frogs first commitment for the 2013 class.

Why did he choose TCU?

"The defense they run, the communication they have and the way the linebackers play," Douglas said of the reasons he chose TCU. "Everyone was talking to me like I've been up there for two years."

Douglas comes from a close-knit family. In fact his mother and sister were on his visit Saturday. He says the chance to play close to home which allows his family the chance to see him play was a huge factor.

"It played a lot, its right down the street," Douglas said of TCU's location. "Everyone was really excited. Me and my sister were just jumping up and down in the living room. They get to come see me and play and my sister gets to wear her favorite color."

Douglas said playing time wasn't too much of a discussion other than the fact the Frogs are looking for quality players for the 2013 class.

"They said that they have no linebackers. They want guys that can run and make tackles. That's why they like me," Douglas said.

Douglas says he is done with the process and doesn't plan to take anymore visits. Something he is just fine with.

As a junior, Douglas recorded 148 tackles and 6 sacks from his inside linebacker position.
