FOX Sports NEXT/Scout.com released the initial 2015 top 300 list on Thursday and TCU targets were well represented.

The Frogs currently have one commitment for their 2015 class in Round Rock, TX defensive end Breylin Mitchell, who landed on the prestigious list. Mitchell made the initial rankings as a four-star prospect and rated as the No. 283 player overall. Mitchell also ranks as the No. 34 defensive end prospect in the nation and No. 2 in the Lone Star State.


Jefferson is the No. 2 prospect in the nation
In addition to Mitchell, the Frogs are in the running for several names on the list.

Two prospects from Texas rank among the top three players in the nation; Mesquite Poteet linebacker Malik Jefferson (#2) and Gladewater defensive tackle Daylon Mack. Jefferson received an offer from the Frogs in early May and visited TCU last summer. Jefferson says he's completely open at this stage in the process and already has nearly twenty offers.

Mack is rated as the No. 2 defensive tackle prospect in the country and holds offers from Alabama, Texas, Texas A&M, LSU, Oklahoma and TCU to name just a few. Mack has listed TCU among his favorite schools early on and attended two TCU camps this summer.

The Frogs are also in the hunt for the top runningback prospect in the nation; Plano West's Sotonye Jamabo. The big 6-foot-2, 190-pounder checks in as the No. 7 overall prospect in the country and he already holds offers from TCU, Baylor, Texas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Ohio State to name a few.

At No. 18 overall is one of the latest TCU offers; defensive end Keisean Lucier-South. The defensive end also ranks as the No. 4 overall prospect in California and holds offer from programs across the country. He received an offer from the Frogs in late July.

The Frogs are also targeting two of the top athletes in the country in Kendall Sheffield and Kris Boyd. Sheffield, who comes in as the No. 21 overall player already holds ten offers with TCU offering him last month. Boyd, at No. 49, attended TCU's Kilgore camp earlier this summer and mentioned TCU as one of his top three schools.

In at No. 43 overall is Whitehouse, TX safety Justin Dunning. Dunning also attended TCU's satellite camp in Kilgore earlier this summer and also made an unofficial visit to TCU's campus during the spring.

Larry Pryor makes his appearance on the list at No. 60. Pryor was one of the first prospects from the 2015 class to receive an offer from the Frogs. Pryor is no stranger to the Frogs' program, having visited the campus twice last year when the Frogs played Kansas State and Oklahoma. Pryor has TCU among his top schools at the moment.

Missouri City (TX) Ridge Point linebacker Cameron Townsend checks in at No. 99 overall as an outside linebacker. Townsend holds offers from Texas, Texas A&M, USC and Oklahoma to name a few. He awaits an offer from TCU and he recently visited the Ft. Worth campus to watch a Frogs' practice.

Daylon Mack isn't the only highly rated defensive tackle on the Frogs' radar. Shreveport Calvary Baptist's T. D. Moton comes in as the No. 107 overall prospect and No. 9 defensive tackle in the nation. Also rated as the top defensive lineman in Louisiana, Moton received his offer from TCU in July.

Checking in at No. 128 overall is Mesquite Horn offensive lineman Conner Dyer. TCU was one of the first programs to offer Dyer. In addition to TCU, Dyer also holds offers from Stanford, Texas Tech and Cal. Dyer visited TCU's campus and June and walked away very impressed with the visit.

No. 144 overall is Cy Ridge receiver Kemah Siverand. Siverand received his offer from the Frogs in early July.


Hasty has gamebreaking speed
JaMycal Hasty out of Longview, TX has added offers from Texas Tech, Baylor and Texas since receiving his offer from TCU in June. Hasty is rated as the No. 148 overall prospect and attended TCU's satellite camp earlier this summer in Kilgore.

Houston Lamar is loaded in the defensive backfield with 2014 four-stars John Bonney and John Plattenburg. Joining them with four-star status is Holton Hill, who checks in at No. 164 overall. Hill was one of the top performers at TCU's July 19th skills camp.

Ennis, TX defensive end James Lockhart checks in at No. 180 overall and No. 23 defensive end prospect in the country. Lockhart also ranks as the top defensive end in Texas. Lockhart visited TCU on July 19th and received an offer from the Frogs during his visit. In addition to his TCU offer, Lockhart holds offers from Texas and Baylor.

At No. 237 is Prime Prep Academy receiver James Proche. Proche dominated at a Frogs' camp in June and last month his hard work paid off with an offer from the Frogs. Proche likes what he sees in the Frogs at the moment, but is taking his time with the process.

Hunstville, TX athlete Morie Evans checks in at No. 271 overall. Evans stole the show at TCU last summer prior to his sophomore year; running a 4.38 forty. Evans is a do-it-all player for Huntsville, lining up at receiver, runningback, cornerback and safety.

The final TCU prospect that holds an offer on the list is Flower Mound (TX) Marcus offensive lineman Keaton Sutherland. A big athletic lineman, Sutherland is rated at No. 289 overall and No. 28 offensive tackle. Sutherland received his offer from TCU following a standout performance at a Frogs' camp in June. Since receiving his offer from the Frogs, Sutherland has added offers from Arkansas and Oklahoma.
