Petties-Wilson is a Frog

Upgrading the wide receiver position has been a point of emphasis for both Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meacham since they took over the TCU offense. They added another talented receiver on Monday when Andre Petties-Wilson committed to the Frogs.

TCU added another key piece to its 2014 recruiting class when wide receiver Andre Petties-Wilson from San Diego, California, pulled the trigger for the Frogs.

Petties-Wilson visited TCU last week and left amazed with what TCU had to offer.

"The players and coaches were so cool and welcoming," Petties-Wilson said. "Then the campus was just amazing and the facilities. I'm just exited to go, and I can't wait."

Petties-Wilson is a 6'1 receiver from Mission Bay Senior High School who was a late-bloomer and thus under the radar in the recruiting process. He gives TCU added depth at a position where new offensive coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie wanted an upgrade.

APW said he got the official offer from TCU "...this morning on my way to school and it was Coach Meacham,the funniest coach ever."

He has the size to play in both the slot and on the outside. He was a versatile athlete that played cornerback, wide receiver, kick returner and punter in high school. He scored over 25 touchdowns in his high school career.

Humbled by the process, Petties-Wilson expressed his gratitude to all that believed in him.

"I just wanna thank God, my family, coaches, coach Ro, and everyone who believed in me these last 4 years of high school football."

?Petties-Wilson becomes the fourth wide receiver in the 2014 class for TCU, and Ryan Parker of Fossil Ridge High School is still seeking eligibility to become the fifth receiver in the class.

With a new offense that is expected to throw the ball 30-40 times per game, the Frogs cannot have enough playmakers on the outside. With TCU unable to count on senior Brandon Carter, Petties-Wilson and the other freshmen receivers will have the opportunity to compete for early playing time.
