Kee Follows His Heart

TCU added their eighth commitment to their 2014 class on Wednesday when Tyler Junior College offensive lineman Frank Kee committed to the Frogs.

TCU added a huge commitment on Wednesday afternoon when Tyler Junior College offensive lineman Frank Kee posted via Twitter that he would be playing the rest of his college ball for the Horned Frogs.

"I just wanna thank all the coaches and coaching staffs for everything but I feel like there's one place that stood out and I felt at home," he tweeted. "And I'll be spending my next two years of college football at TCU GO FROGS."

Kee becomes the Frogs' eighth commitment to their 2014 class and the second offensive lineman commitment. The big lineman actually made his decision known to TCU earlier today when he made the drive to the Ft. Worth campus to deliver the good news to the coaching staff in person.

"They were happy, everyone was jumping up and down and Coach Patterson was dancing," Kee said. "It was real fun and a great atmosphere because they've been trying to get me since high school. They finally got the opportunity for me to be a Horned Frog."

The 6-foot-4, 345-pounder chose TCU over offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Baylor and Texas Tech. For Kee, the relationship he built with the TCU staff when he was a recruit for the 2011 class was a big factor on why he chose the Horned Frogs. It felt like "family" at TCU.

"It felt like family there and I love the coaching staff," he said. "I know a lot of the players already. In high school when no other program put their faith in me, TCU stuck with me even after I had to go to a junior college. They saw potential in me and I just love it up there.

"I just had that gut feeling about TCU and the campus life because it's a private school. Everything factored in and I was real comfortable with my decision. I had no doubt."

Kee also mentioned that TCU's proximity and academics also played a big role in his decision.

"My family can come to all of my games and the academic part was big because one day football is going to end and you have to have a plan B for what you do after football," he said. "With me having a degree from TCU it gives me a lot more options."

Kee will graduate this December and be on TCU's campus in time for spring ball. He wants the Frog fans to know they'll be getting a hard worker on and off the football field.

"Off the field they're getting a big goofy guy who is a clown that makes you laugh and is a joy to be around. But, on the field I turn the switch and I'm nasty, aggressive and I'm going to get after you. I'm looking to move you and destroy you. That's the type of player I am, I like hitting people," he said. "That's what they're going to get on and off the field."
