Turpin Talks TCU Decision
TCU added two commitments last weekend when they hauled in Arico Evans and Kavontae Turpin; giving the Frogs their 23rd and 24th commitments of the 2015 class. Turpin, out of Monroe (La) Neville was the first to commit to the Frogs; committing to the coaching staff before leaving his official visit. The 5-foot-9, 160-pounder chose TCU over Texas Tech and Southern Miss. The speedster liked everything about his visit which is why he decided to waste little time in making his decision. “I just love the atmosphere and the coaches are very cool,” Turpin said. “All the players have one goal and that’s to win. I’m a winner; that’s what I like.” His decision to be a Frog had the coaching staff excited according to Turpin. “(It was) awesome, everybody was fired up,” he said. Speaking of being a winner, Turpin helped his team win a state championship in 2014. Turpin played running back, receiver and played a huge role on special teams to help the effort. His versatility will fit well in the Frogs high-flying offense. “They like how explosive I am,” he said. “I will be playing running back and wide receiver.” Turpin said on Thursday that since his commitment to TCU, things on the recruiting front have gone quiet. “Teams have backed off,” he said.
