New TCU commit Nijeel Meeking felt at home in Fort Worth

Farmerville (Louisiana) Union Parrish high school athlete Nijeel Meeking talked about his decision to flip to TCU.

Farmerville (Louisiana) Union Parrish high school athlete Nijeel Meeking flipped his commitment from Louisiana-Lafayette to TCU on Sunday, after taking a surprise visit to Fort Worth.

Meeking talked about the decision. 

“It was definitely a big weight off my shoulders,” said Meeking. “It felt like home. The coaching staff was so friendly. They made me feel like family.” 

Listed as an athlete in the database, Meeking said their isn’t a specific plan in place for him yet with the Frogs.

“The staff saw my film and they can’t decide what they want me to do – so they are saying athlete,” said the 2017 commit. “They said I can do a little of everything. They said they want me to feel comfortable.”

Meeking enjoyed his time in Fort Worth.

“I was shocked when I got there. It was a great visit,” said Meeking. “I think we can win championships at TCU - a lot of championships. The visit was overall amazing.”

An under the radar recruit, Meeking also had an offer from Mississippi State. When watching his HUDL, it is easy to see why TCU had interest in the versatile prospect.

“I take my lack of recruiting as motivation to get better,” said Meeking.

We will catch up with the senior on National Signing Day.
