TCU Lands Georgia DB

TCU has landed another hidden gem, this time from Georgia. The 6'1" 180 pound CB brings athleticism and speed to the table. Here's what he had to say about his visit.

The TCU Horned Frogs have searched deep and wide for talent to round out the 2014 class. Today they added another out of state gem, Ridwan Issahaku. The 6'1" CB is very athletic and has the top end speed needed to cover receivers in the Big 12. So what was it about TCU that made the young man choose TCU?

"The campus was really pretty" he said. "I was able to have a good one on one with Coach Jennings, to see what I could do in the defense. Knowing their defense is a top defense and that I may be able to come in and contribute, that's what stood out."

"Knowing that it's a small school and that I can get a lot of one on one time with the teachers is good."

With offers from Georgia State, Buffalo and Western Kentucky, the talented defensive back is happy to have a chance to play in the Big 12. On his visit, TCU's prowess as a program was on full display.

"The facilities were really nice" he said. "If I had to rank them, they're up there with anybody's."

"It was a great visit and everybody was friendly. My host Denzel (Johnson), he's a freshman, he was a real cool guy and really told me about every coach and how they are on and off the field. I just liked how everyone was really friendly on the campus and around the school, it was just a really friendly environment."

When it comes to academics, Issahaku is focused on being the best he can be. Fortunately for him, the field he's possibly looking to go in to just so happens to be a strong suit for TCU.

"I'm thinking seriously about going into business but I'm not sure yet" he said. "I'm really excited to come here and I thank the coaches for the opportunity and I'm ready to win a lot of football games."
