Local Standout Chooses Frogs

Ft. Worth (TX) Paschal receiver Dylan Thomas committed to TCU on Wednesday morning giving the Frogs their third commit for their 2016 class.

The good news just keeps rolling for Horned Frog fans. Last week, the Frogs dismantled Texas 48-10 in front of a national audience. On Monday, the Frogs added 2015 offensive tackle David Bolisomi, who chose the Frogs over Oklahoma State and Texas Tech among others.

By Tuesday, the Frogs had vaulted into the No.3 spot in the latest College Football Playoff Rankings; virtually assuring them a playoff berth if they take care of business on Saturday against Iowa State.

On Wednesday morning the good news continued as they landed their third commitment for their already impressive 2016 class when Ft. Worth Paschal athlete Dylan Thomas committed to the Frogs.

Thomas said he's blessed that his hard work lead him to the opportunity to play for the Frogs.

"I feel like all of my hard work has paid off; I'm blessed," Thomas said. "I'm thankful for this opportunity and give all praises to God."

Thomas joins Brennen Wooten and Jonathan Marshall as part of the Frogs’ 2016 class.

Thomas is currently rated as the No.58 receiver prospect in the nation and chose the Frogs over an offer from SMU and interest from Baylor and Florida State among other. Thomas visited TCU Wednesday morning with his parents to give the coaches his commitment. The receiver says location played a big part in his decision to be a Frog.

"Location played a big part for me, it's three minutes away from my school," Thomas said. "I also get along with the coaches. My parents were behind my decision. I just feel like there's no better place to do it than home."

Thomas says the TCU coaching staff was excited to hear the news Wednesday morning.

"They were very excited, I could tell they were very happy," Thomas said.

The 6-foot, 190-pounder has played quarterback for Paschal the last two seasons. He earned district newcomer of the year honors as a sophomore. In 2014, Thomas accounted for 2,044 offensive yards and 21 touchdowns.

With such versatility, Thomas is excited to play in the Frogs' wide open offense.

"It fits me perfect, I like to use my size and speed to an advantage," Thomas said.
