The Frogs added former Texas A&M quarterback Matt Joeckel on Thursday sources confirmed to HornedFrogBlitz.com. This comes a day after former Frog Tyler Matthews, a redshirt sophomore, announced his intentions on transferring from the program.
Joeckel has already graduated from Texas A&M and will immediately be eligible to suit up for the Horned Frogs. Sources also confirmed the gunslinger will arrive on TCU's campus in June with the other summer enrollees.
The Arlington, TX native spent four seasons and a half seasons at Texas A&M.
The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder saw action in five games in 2013 for the Aggies, splitting time as backup with Kenny Hill to Johnny Manziel. Joeckel received his first start in the season opener against Rice, completing 14-of-19 passes for 190 yards and 1 TD in one half of action. On the season he completed 22-of-37 passes for 293 yards and 2 touchdowns. In his career as an Aggie, Joeckel completed 27-of-48 passes for 335 yards and 2 touchdowns.
With Matthews leaving, Joeckel will be in a battle for the starting position with junior Trevone Boykin, redshirt freshman Zach Allen and incoming freshmen Foster Sawyer and Grayson Muehlstein. Boykin was named the starter at the conclusion of spring camp.
