After landing Kenedy Snell last year I the 2017 class, TCU could very well take two running backs in 2018.
With a large senior class in 2017, the Frogs will likely have a decent size 2018 class.
Here is a look at the running back board.
This is not an official board for TCU, but more the feeling of Horned Frog Insider.
http://www.scout.com/player/203454-asa-martin?s=360 A recent offer for TCU, Martin ran 49 times for 372 yards and four scores in 2016 according to Maxpreps.com. While the numbers aren’t eye popping, he was at IMG Academy where they had a large pool of running backs.
Martin is heading back home to Austin high school in Decatur, Alabama.
"It is truly a blessing," said Martin, when contacted by Scout.com about his offer from the Frogs. "I don't know much about them. But I really like Coach Luper and the way their run their offense."
Martin has a strong offer list, with schools such as LSU, Mississippi, Tennessee, Wisconsin and West Virginia also offering scholarships. In the fall, Ole Miss appeared to be out early for the junior.
"Martin is a slippery ball carrier that shows impressive cutback ability and foot quickness while navigating through traffic en route to the end zone," said Scout.com Florida analyst Corey Bender. "He's an instinctive runner that's patient to wait for his blocks to set up, but can continue to work on his acceleration to break off some of those game-changing plays."

After receiving the offer from the Frogs in December, Ingram visited TCU during the first junior day.
http://www.scout.com/player/198269-kirby-bennett?s=360 Bishop Gorman high school (Las Vegas) is a D-1 factory and Bennett is a national style recruit – ultimately a kid that will be a tough pull for anyone.
He has an offer, but expect him to stay out west.
http://www.scout.com/player/213654-brenden-brady?s=204 Brady hit TCU junior day a few weeks ago. Currently the Cibolo Steele running back doesn’t have a Frog offer, but he does have offers from Marshall and Texas-San Antonio. Expect him to be a prospect many teams check in on during the spring.
http://www.scout.com/player/194104-craig-williams?s=360 If Ingram is the No. 1 running back in the state of Texas, Williams isn’t far behind. The Crosby four-star product only played in five games, but when he was healthy he ran for 8.9 yards per carry and found the end zone five times from scrimmage.
While at the moment he doesn’t hold an offer from TCU, the junior’s offer list is definitely growing – Arizona State, Auburn, Texas Tech, Utah, Purdue, Missouri and Colorado to name a few.
Williams is small, but he’s got home run ability with a laser forty-time in the high 4.3s.
