Galea'i Enjoys In-Home Visit with TCU

The TCU Horned Frogs are looking to cap off an impressive recruiting class and they hope they can keep local star defender, Tipa Galea'i, from slipping away.

The TCU Horned Frogs have been on an unparalleled run lately when it comes to picking up new commitments. While Tipa Galeai hasn’t yet committed to TCU, the Euless Trinity High School prospect likes what he’s hearing from the Horned Frogs. Galeai spoke with about his in-home visit with the TCU coaching staff tonight and it sounds like the Frogs are in good shape.

”It’s a little hectic lately” said Galeai, explaining the pressure that’s mounting as signing day nears. “It’s a little overwhelming but I think I’m controlling it pretty well.”

With Coach Patterson, Coach Bumpas and Coach Perry making an in-home visit with the Trojan star defender, Galeai says his nerves were at an all-time high.

”Oh man, I loved it, I loved it” he said. “I loved it all but it was a little nerve racking having those three coaches in the house (laughing)”.

While National Signing Day gets closer by the day, Galeai is a feeling the pressure that comes with making such a big decision. Making things more difficult is the fact that he has multiple solid offers on the table. With programs such as TCU, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Oklahoma State, Washington State, Utah, and others offering him, Galeai has a difficult decision ahead.

As far as TCU is concerned, they seem to have made a great impression on the talented defensive end.

”Coach Bumpas was talking to me on my trip this weekend and he told me he sees a lot in me” said Galeai. “He said he would love to work with me to make me a great d-end and I would like to be coached by him”.

As far as other programs that are pursuing the Trininty prospect, it looks like they may be too little too late. “Texas Tech set up a visit and so did Oklahoma State but when I commit, if I commit to TCU, I don’t plan on taking any more visits and I’m fully committed.”

So, a commitment to the Horned Frogs would shut the door to any other programs that try to enter the mix before signing day. With a decision expected to be made within the next week, stay logged on to to get the latest.
