With TCU already close to filling their allotted scholarships for the 2015 class with 15 commitments, the Frogs have put a lot of focus on the 2016 class.
The staff has extended offers to over thirty 2016 prospects. On Friday, they offered one of the top defensive ends in the nation; Manor, TX prospect Erick Fowler.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder holds offers Baylor, Oklahoma, Nebraska and UCLA among others. Fowler is already rated a four-star and ranked as the No. 16 defensive end in the nation and No. 161 overall player in the Scout.com Top 300.
Fowler received the offer from the Frogs while in town to watch the team go through a practice. He was glad to receive his newest offer.
“TCU was a great offer for me,” he said.
In addition to watching practice, Fowler got a chance to spend time with the coaching staff. The visit went well as he was impressed with both the practice and staff.
“I really liked the coaching staff there and the players practiced well too,” he said.
Fowler admits he didn’t know much about TCU’s program prior to his visit.
“I just knew that they were good in football,” he said.
Fowler recorded 84 tackles and a staggering 19 sacks as a sophomore in 2013 as he helped Manor to a 9-2 mark.
