It’s been wild this month for TCU both on and off the field. The Frogs lost three commits in a span of seven days as Bellaire wide receiver Courtney Lark and C.E. King running back Trayveon Williams recanted their pledges to the university. Since then, both have also committed elsewhere. Lark to Tom Herman and the Houston Cougars while Williams gave Texas A&M and Kevin Sumlin his verbal. The third was Lexington (OK) offensive lineman Tyler Brown who pulled his pledge from TCU and announced his intentions of heading to Oklahoma State. Brown had been committed to the Horned Frogs since May 31st.
The TCU Horned Frogs also put four new offers on the table. Coffeyville C.C. cornerback JaMarcus King was first to receive a TCU offer this month. As one of the top cornerback prospects in this year’s JUCO class, King boast a solid offer list when Auburn as his favorite. Gary Patterson also extended an offer to Michigan commit, David Reese. The inside linebacker from Farmington, MI has been committed to the Wolverines since April of the year. Getting him on campus for a visit isn’t out of the question as he’s been pretty active since committing with visits to the likes of Louisville and Nebraska. He’s planning of visiting Texas in mid-December. Butler County C.C. offensive lineman Bennet Powers also reported an offer. Powers was a first-team all conference lineman this past season.
The fourth offer of the month went to Beaumont Westbrook safety Innis Gaines and two days later the Frogs got a verbal from the fast rising playmaker. At 6-2, 190 Gaines is a perfect fit for TCU’s defensive scheme. Previously committed to the University of Texas at San Antonio Gaines features an offer list of 15 schools ranging from FCS to FBS. Since late October, the safety has picked up offers from Fresno State, Utah, Arkansas and TCU.
By all indications, the rest of November should be as good, if not better with big home games coming up and big names expected on campus.
