TCU football recruiting: Latest updates on Horned Frogs’ 2019 class

The 2019 TCU recruiting class has seven commitments so far with less than 10 months remaining until the early signing period.

The Horned Frogs are already adding big commitments to the class this spring as they look to follow up one of the best classes in school history. TCU is going after some big-time targets, especially within the state of Texas, many of whom will begin making commitments in the next couple of months.

Here is where things stand for TCU with the Class of 2019.

Where the 2019 TCU recruiting class ranks

TCU currently has the No. 10 recruiting class in the country and the No. 2 class in the Big 12.

Latest news with the 2019 TCU recruiting class

TCU is once again pursuing some of the top prospects in Louisiana for this year’s recruiting class. The state’s No. 23 overall prospect, linebacker Bryton Constantin, named TCU to his list of top schools this week.

The Frogs pulled some of their best recruits from the 2018 class out of Louisiana, including quarterback Justin Rogers, wide receiver John Stephens and defensive back Ar’Darius Washington. It’s become more of a pipeline state for them over the past few years, and they’ll probably look to keep up that trend in 2019.

TCU recruiting: Top remaining targets

4-star QB Grant Gunnell, St. Pius X (Houston, Texas) – Uncommitted

The No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the country is back on the market after de-committing from Texas A&M. Listed at 6-foot-6 and 212 pounds, Grant Gunnell has prototypical size for a passer. He’s also put up incredible numbers during his high school career, passing for 4,926 yards and 61 touchdowns as a junior in 2017. TCU has pulled in two of the highest-ranked quarterback recruits in school history in the past two classes in Shawn Robinson and Justin Rogers, but that won’t keep the Frogs from pursuing one of the best passers in the country. Oklahoma State is currently the favorite to land him.

4-star WR Theo Wease, Allen (Allen, Texas) – Uncommitted

The nation’s No. 30 overall prospect has TCU among his top schools. Theo Wease visited campus in January, and TCU is the closest Power 5 program to his hometown of Allen, Texas. Getting his commitment would be a major accomplishment in the Frogs’ quest to control the recruiting ground in the Metroplex.

4-star WR Garrett Wilson, Lake Travis (Austin, Texas) – Uncommitted

Garrett Wilson is TCU’s No. 1 target at receiver in the Class of 2019, but the Frogs will have to beat out some of the top programs in the country for his commitment. He has drawn interest from Michigan, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Texas and USC, among others. He caught 98 passes for 1,773 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior in 2017. He is the No. 78 overall prospect in the country.

4-star WR Jameson Williams, Cardinal Ritter College Prep (St. Louis, Mo.) – Uncommitted

Another coveted receiver prospect for 2019, Jameson Williams is one of the Frogs’ top priorities at the position in this class. He has yet to visit the Frogs, however, and Ohio State is currently considered the favorite to land him.
