TCU offers three offensive tackles on Tuesday

TCU made multiple offensive line offers on Tuesday.

With four graduating offensive lineman in 2017, TCU will have to reload at the position in the 2018 class. 

On Tuesday, the Froges threw out multiple offers at the position. 

Tampa (Florida) Cambridge-Christian four-star prospect Richard Gouraige has a double-digit offer list – including schools such as Florida, Alabama, Ohio State and Oklahoma.

“Gouraige is an intriguing prospect with the makings of a true left tackle. Gouraige is flexible and does a great job of getting underneath his opponent in leverage, but also slides feet effortlessly when operating in pass protection,” said Florida recruiting analyst Corey Bender. “He checks off all of the boxes when it comes to his physical characteristics, possessing great length and a frame that should have no problem packing on an additional 25-30 pounds.” Traverse City West (Michigan) four-star offensive tackle Ryan Hayes saw TCU be the 8th school to jump into the mix. Notre Dame, Minnesota and Michigan State have all offered.

"He's a very gifted athlete. A three-sport-athlete, which is extremely refreshing in this world of specialization that a kid continues to be competitive in three different sports,” said Titans head coach Tim Wooer said in a previous story. “In baseball, he was a No. 2 pitcher last year on a state semi-final team and he'll be our No. 1 pitcher this year. He throws mid-80's as a pitcher. He will average 15 and 10 a game in basketball and he was our best football player. You could arguably, possibly, even say that about his sophomore year.” Last but certainly not least, Iowa Western junior college offensive tackle Anthony McKinney received an offer from the Frogs. TCU landed wide receiver Taj Williams from Iowa Western in the 2016 class.

McKinney also has offers from Iowa State and Oklahoma.

"Coaches tell me I have great footwork for a guy my size," McKinney said in a previous story. "I'm also a lot more flexible that most lineman out there. My best ability about being on the O-line is my run blocking."
