Morris makes the call

TCU added their second commitment of the 2013 class Tuesday afternoon from Denton Guyer offensive lineman Patrick Morris.

With commitments happening at a much earlier rate than ever before, it's easy to see why TCU fans were getting a bit restless with only one commitment for the 2013 class in the fold. At this time last year the Frogs had already secured five commitments for the 2012 class.

The Frogs landed their first commitment for 2013 when Arlington linebacker Sammy Douglas committed to the Frogs back on February 25th.

After over a month long wait, the commitment drought officially ended on Tuesday afternoon when Denton Guyer guard Patrick Morris gave his commitment to TCU.

Ranked as the nation's #24 rated guard; Morris chose TCU over offers from Texas Tech, Washington State, SMU, UNT and Northwestern. For Morris, feeling at home was the deciding factor in his commitment.

"It just felt where I can see myself spending the next four or five years of my life, the place is so homey," Morris said. "I like the coaching staff too."

Morris admits that although TCU is close in proximity to Denton, he would've chosen the Frogs no matter where the campus was.

"I really don't think the location played such a big deal because if TCU would've been somewhere else I still would've gone there just because it felt like home to me already."

Morris was in attendance for the Frogs' Tuesday scrimmage and came away impressed with how everyone interacted.

"I really like how practice went and I really like how Coach Patterson was into it and how all the coaches weren't just so much overseeing things," he said. "They were getting into as much in it as the kids."

Morris says the Frogs recruited him as an interior lineman but will wait after his first year on campus before deciding where he ultimately ends up.

"Coach Williamson said he was going to work me in my first year at guard or center and just go from there," Morris said.

With his decision comes a big relief for Morris, who can now spend his time focusing on helping Guyer make a run at a state championship.

"It's a pretty big relief, now I don't have to worry about all this other recruiting and I can just get back to Guyer and focus on my senior year," Morris finished.
