TCU Lands Dallas WR

The TCU Horned Frogs continue their attempt to lock down DFW Metroplex talent. They picked up a big time commitment today from South Oak Cliff WR, J.F. Thomas.

The TCU Horned Frogs have added their 9th commitment to the class of 2015, also known on Twitter as #Funkytown15. With another playmaking, big bodied receiver in the fold, TCU's plan on offense is beginning to take shape. HornedFrogBlitz.com caught up with Thomas to get his take on the day's events.

Hailing from Dallas' South Oak Cliff High school, Thomas talked about how special it was to be able to stay home and play college football.

"It means a lot that I get to stay home with my family" said Thomas. "My mom really didn't want me to go too far so that's why I made the decision to go to TCU."

"They're a very good football team and they can help me in the classroom and I just like the program." At 6'4" and 185 pounds, Thomas is a rising prospect for the class of 2015. With offers from Maryland, SMU, North Texas, Colorado State and Arkansas State, the talented pass catcher was happy to receive the offer from TCU on his visit today. He talked about local talent staying home and bringing a national championship to TCU.

"The coaches are right" he said. "If we can get all these guys to stay home, we could play for the championship."

When asked what it was that stood out about TCU, Thomas cited the environment, the facilities and the coaching staff. "I liked everything about TCU" he said. "I like the coaching staff and they liked me too."

With 9 months still remaining in the 2015 recruiting cycle, Thomas says he has mind set on TCU, should other programs come calling.

"I'm really focusing on playing for TCU"

"I'm a great student and I make big plays." said Thomas when asked what TCU fans could expect from him once he's on campus.

With more offers surely to come, it will be interesting to watch this recruitment play out. For now, TCU has landed one of the most athletic playmakers in the Metroplex. \\\
