With just one week left until national signing day, the Horned Frogs are still eyeing a few big time prospects to add to their 2016 signing class.
Here’s the Top 5 targets that Gary Patterson and his staff want to ink before national signing day:
Tyrie Cleveland is the Frogs’ highest priority right now. The Houston commit had an in-home visit with TCU co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie on Monday night, and it seems like things are still up in the air for Cleveland.
Other schools like Arkansas and Florida are also pushing the 4-star wide receiver for his pledge, but it seems like the Frogs and the Cougars are his front runners. However, Cleveland will take his last visit to Gainesville this weekend.
2. Kyle Porter
Running back Kyle Porter is another priority for TCU’s coaching staff going into national signing day. The 4-star prospect from Katy, Texas is one of the best running backs in the state and the Frogs still need some more depth at the position, even with Darius Anderson’s commitment last week.
Porter visited TCU on Jan. 15 and sources said he had a great time in Fort Worth, but did not make give the Frogs his pledge. Texas, who he visited last week, is also in the mix to land Porter on signing day.
Despite the depth that TCU already has on its defensive line, the Frogs also seem open to adding another tackle. On Monday, defensive tackle D’andre Christmas Giles announced on Twitter that the Frogs are in his Top 3 along with Texas and LSU.
It seems that the Longhorns may lead for the three-star from Louisiana, given both the Frogs and Tigers’ depth and defensive line, but sources say that TCU is still very much in the mix.
Plano East’s Adewale Omotosho is also in TCU’s crosshairs. The 4-star wide receiver announced on Tuesday that the Frogs are in his Top 4 along with Oklahoma State, UCLA and SMU. Omotosho visited TCU on Jan. 22 and he said the visit went well, but the Bruins will get his last visit on the weekend before signing day.
Even though Omotosho is one of TCU most valued prospects, the coaching staff may not accept his commitment if Tyrie Cleveland jumps on board before he does.
Louisiana quarterback Keondre Wudtee could also sign with TCU next week. The Parkway High School senior visited Oklahoma State on Jan.15, but the Frogs are still very much still in the race for the 3-star prospect. Sources also say that Louisiana Tech is also a possible destination for Wudtee to end up on national signing day.
Wudtee said he plans to announce his decision at 11 a.m. on national signing day.
