Frogs Snag Louisiana DL

TCU landed the 17th commitment to their 2014 class on Tuesday with the addition of Shreveport Evangel Christian defensive lineman Chris Bradley.

The coaching staff at TCU has been on a recent hot streak on the recruiting trail, snagging three commitments in a span of three days. On Tuesday, they added their fourth commitment since Friday when Shreveport (LA) Evangel Christian Chris Bradley committed to the Horned Frogs.

Bradley is the 17th commitment for the Frogs' 2014 recruiting class and the second defensive lineman to commit to TCU since Sunday; joining L.J. Collier.

The 6-foot-2, 250-pounder visited TCU last weekend which was enough for him to make the switch from Texas State.

"I just like the atmosphere down there and I think it's a great fit for me," Bradley said. "The defense we run here is the same I'd run there so I feel like I can fit right in with everything."

TCU assistant coach Rusty Burns was responsible for recruiting Bradley. Bradley said Burns and the rest of the coaching staff were excited when they received his commitment.

"They were all excited about me committing there," Bradley said of the coach's reaction to his commitment. "There are great things for the future."

Bradley said several things stood out on his visit to TCU from the coaching staff, academics and the campus.

"The visit was wonderful; the campus is amazing and the academics are wonderful," Bradley said. "I got a lot of one on one time with the coaches. The coaches are wonderful. They had one bad season but they're going to fight to rebound this season. The coaches are very disciplined in what they teach."

Bradley had a huge senior season lining up at both defensive end and tackle for the Eagles. On the season he recorded 83 tackles, 15 sacks, forced 6 fumbles and recovered 3 fumbles. For his efforts, Bradley was named District MVP, All City and All State.

The newest commit says the Frogs will utilize him at both positions.

"They're recruiting me at both defensive tackle and defensive end," he said.

Although he's committed to TCU, Bradley says he will still visit Wake Forest this weekend. At the moment the Demon Deacons haven't offered but Bradley expects that to change soon.

"They haven't offered me but I should have an offer from them by tomorrow," he said. "They came in about the same time TCU did."
