ATH Damien Lawry 6-0/175/4.5 Dallas, TX (A Maceo Smith)
ATH Dominique Wheeler 6-2/180/4.4 Crockett, TX

One interesting trend recently is the rash of decommits from OkieSt, including LB Dalton Santos who has an offer from the staff. It is also expected that Kendall Sanders will soon decommit.

TCU after Javonte Magee at DT but he has said that he is a package deal with Raphael Green and S Leo Thomas. Don't see any program (at least top program) making all three an offer.


2013:

QB: The best QB in the state and one of the best in the nation, Tyrone Swoopes (6-5/220/4.59) from Whitewright still is all TCU, but he will be hit hard by Mackdaddy. TAMU has offered appears to be resolved they are out on that and focusing on former Kolby Griffin teammate Kohl Stewart (6-3/185)at Houston St Pius X. In a QB poor class, these 2 stand out big and both with good relations with the staff (Swoopes offered).

It appears the OL Jake Raulerson is a sure bet to UT. TCU is up there for him but he seems to be in love with the burnt orange right now.

Some names to get familiar with:

Ricky Seals-Jones WR/TE 6-5/215 Sealy, TX Possibly the #1 recruit in the state for 2013 and has TCU on the short list, excellent hands and a post in basketball for Sealy.

A'Shawn "Tank" Robinson 6-4/305 OT/DL Ft Worth, TX (Arlington Heights) Plays basketball & football and loves DL but his best position is probably OT. Was impressive at the TCU Nike Camp, UT hard for him.

Alex Mayes OT 6-5/260/5.32 TCU legacy (father & grandfather played at TCU)and big favorite. Needs to improve speed and agility but has that in focus.

Ben Hughes DT 6-4/310 Waco University, TX UT after him but the LT connection helps. TCU on short list for now.

Demun Mercer WR/QB 6-3/180/4.6 Houston, TX (Chavez) One of the best athletes in the state for 2013. Originally from Winnsboro, LA, TCU in top group.

http://www.hudl.com/...95/demun-mercer

Caleb Benenoch
OT 6-5/320 Katy, TX (Seven Lakes)

Kent Perkins OT 6-6/300/4.95 Dallas, TX (Lake Highlands) From Marshall Newhouse's school and like Newhouse he is extremely athletic.

Eric Wren OG 6-3/305 Mesquite, TX (Horn)

Keree Renchie LB 6-4/215/4.7 Fort Bend, TX (Elkins) 2 sport stud looked at by St Johns in basketball.

Bruce Thomas LB 6-0/220/4.6 Delray Beach, FL (Atlantic)

Antwuan Davis DB 6-1/171/4.39 Del Valle, TX speedster, s/b one of the highest recruited DBs in Texas for 2013.

Tristan Gilford DB 6-0/170/4.45 Aldine, TX (Eisenhower)

Kyle Hicks CB 5-10/170/4.4 Arlington, TX (Martin)

Thanks Feisty! It is still looking great for this coming class and with 2013 sneaking up on us it's great to see we may get even a better crop.

2012 class I am hoping we get Keenan and one other on the OL. For OT I think we have a great group we are looking at but is there a chance of going outside the state for an OT?


It's great to have kids growing up see the Frogs dominate on defense and wishing they could play for them but now with the offensive performances TCU is have kids hoping to play offense too. Swoopes is really a great player and I hope he keeps TCU as his first pick. I can already vision him in a TCU uniform passing to Mercer.
What will push TCU over the edge with the best players in the state is for Dalton to come out throwing this year proving TCU can get a 2 star quarterback and making him a NFL quarterback. Just think what we can do with Swoopes! :tongue:

Again I say, we must have a kicker and punter in this class.
"When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion- When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing- when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors- when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you- when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice- you may know that your society is doomed." -- Ayn Rand

What happened to Russell Hansbrough? After his visit earlier in the year, it seemed he was going to commit sometime soon after that. Haven't heard / read anything about him since then. Is he still on the Frogs radar? Offered?

Thanks!

According to Rivals, Agholor is on campus now. First visit by a 5-star in some time, if ever.

Interesting about Blanks that he has no Florida schools on his top-8 list. Guess he wants to go out of state. Wonder if Ohio St. will still be on his list? If not, Fort Worth is definitely a different place than the others, but he will still be able to play on the East Coast.

Texas staff tries to figure what went wrong.  Go Frogs!

I believe there is some fella over in Aledo who visited many times recently. Heard he was a 5 star.

Hansbrough has claimed a TCU offer, but there is some confusion about whether or not he ever actually got one. It might be one of those situations where he mistook interest for an offer.

Either way, I don't think he is in the picture any longer

Blanks is looking better & better for TCU every day. Very spiritual and looking for a coach that can guide him on and off the field. He has also said OSU out and that he definitely wants to go out of state.

I am sure once he hangs with kids such asTrevius Jones, Kolby Griffin and the rest of the team he will find a great new home. Blanks is a solid individual and much more mature than most, high in the frog factor ratings.

Not him per se, but of Whitewright. Check out the toss at 1:35 (may have to regster but is free):

Better link:

Also:

(look at #8 in those videos. Mentioned by Burner in the past but kid is a big fast TE/DE that may grow into an OT and is being looked at by TCU staff- G Ballard).

On the "On the run 2" video is the roll-out pass at about 1:35 (plays starts at 1:20) and he easily throws a 60yrd rope down the sidelines. He is almost casual in his approach (very at ease) and though not an ideal high motion, its not as some describe as more of a Vince Young motion. He definitely throws a much better ball than Young, especially at this stage.

http://video.maxprep...6a-4d5e66562e1e

Also notice he returns punts and plays safety, so kid is virtually an every down player.

With some better blocking he would be unstoppable for them.
