  1. I'm so happy CJD is here for the long haul. It looks as if CJD and his assistants have wasted no time hitting the recruiting trail. Looks to me that we're going to have a kick ass basketball team that we'll all be proud of for years to come.
  2. TCU basketball hosting two OV's this weekend TCU basketball hopes to have another successful weekend on the recruiting trail as they plan to host two official visitors this weekend; Isaiah Ihnen and Kevin Easley. Last weekend the Frogs hosted three visitors and two of them gave commitments following their visit; Xavier transfer Keonte Kennedy and Mickey Pearson, the No. 81 small forward in the nation according to the 247Sports composite rankings. The 6-foot-9, 205-pound Ihnen is out of Munich, Germany. In addition to TCU, he will also visit Minnesota and Tennessee while in the United States. Ihnen told Evan Daniels of 247Sports that he feels he could flourish for the Frogs. "I like their playing style, and I think that I could flourish there,” Ihnen said of TCU. In addition to Minnesota and Tennessee, Ihnen holds offers from Arizona State, Stanford and UNC Greensboro. Originally a 2018 prospect, Easley is transferring from Tennessee-Chattanooga. A three-star prospect out of Indianapolis Lawrence North, the 6-foot-6, 232-pound small forward had a spectacular freshman campaign in 2018-2019. Easley led Chattanooga with 14.4 points per game and averaged 6.5 rebounds while averaging 27.9 minutes per game. For his efforts Easley was named the Southern Conference Freshman of the Year. He became the first player in Chattanooga history to win the award. If Easley chooses the Frogs he would have to sit due to the NCAA transfer rules. TCU is building on replacing at least seven players from last year’s roster. Four players have transferred, two have graduated (Alex Robinson and JD Miller) and Kouat Noi has declared for the NBA draft. If Noi is not selected he will pursue his pro dream overseas. Desmond Bane has also entered his name into the NBA draft but has not signed with an agent which leaves his return to TCU for his senior season as a possibility. The Frogs are coming off a 23-14 record and berth in the NIT semifinals in 2018-2019. The main contributors returning include Kevin Samuel, Kendric Davis, RJ Nembhard and reserves Russell Barlow and Lat Mayen. Dylan Arnette redshirted last season.
  3. TCU in a good spot for Corey Wren following OV If you watch film on John Curtis (LA) prospect Corey Wren, it doesn’t take long for TCU fans to recognize the similarities in his game and former Frog KaVontae Turpin. Both are around the same size and both possess explosive speed. Unlike Turpin coming out of high school, Wren isn’t a secret. In fact, the speedster holds over 20 offers from programs including Arizona State, Florida State, West Virginia, Tennessee and TCU among others. Wren recently made his way to Fort Worth last weekend for an official visit to TCU. The visit impressed the Louisiana product. “I really enjoyed the visit, it has always been a dream of mine to stay in Texas,” he said. “So, just being around that type of atmosphere was great.” Wren liked many aspects of the visit but he said his favorite part was the time he spent hanging out with TCU offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie. Wren says the plan Cumbie showed him on how they would utilize his skills was exciting. “Talking with Sonny Cumbie was the best part about the visit. Coach Cumbie broke down the film to me for a good 30 minutes and the play they have for me is very exciting,” Wren said. “They plan to give me the ball in space and that’s my type of game.” Wren not only has the fastest 100-meter time in Louisiana this track season, his 10.41 is also the 10th best time in the nation according to Athletic.net. With that kind of speed, it’s no surprise that Cumbie feels Wren could make an immediate impact. Wren says early playing time is a big factor for him. “He told me I can come in and be a big factor right away as a true freshman,” he said. “So yes, that does play a big role in my decision making knowing that his coach has a plan for my game.” Another factor that could weigh in TCU’s favor is the advice he received from linebacker Garret Wallow, an ex-John Curtis player himself. Wren says Wallow gave him some great advice regarding the Frogs. “One huge thing about the program he told me is the stability of the coaching staff; knowing that Coach P has been there for so long. It’s great to know that you’ll come in with the same coach you started with,” Wren said. “I’m huge on that.” Wren says he may visit Arizona State next for an official visit but that is still up in the air. As for when he plans to narrow things down and where TCU stands, things are looking good for the Frogs. “I plan to drop my top schools around the end of spring ball but I can promise you TCU is a top school of mine,” Wren said. “It’s a great program with a great family vibe.” With plans to major in sports medicine, Wren says he’s keying in on a few important factors to help make his decision. 1COMMENTS “A school that shows loyalty is a key aspect for me; a program with a winning mentality and a family program,” he said. Wren is rated as the No. 49 athlete in the nation and No. 29 overall player in Louisiana according to 247Sports.

  5. Local 4-star Christian Gonzalez would like to hear from TCU The Colony four-star defensive back Christian Gonzalez was once under the radar early in the process but that’s not the case any longer as he now holds over 20 offers. The 6-foot-1, 193-pounder holds offers from programs around the nation including Notre Dame, Arizona State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, SMU, Baylor and Colorado among others. Gonzalez believes the attention is about to pick up even more on the recruiting front. “It’s going good and it’s about to get back crazy because it’s the start of spring ball,” he said. “Notre Dame talks to me a lot, Colorado and Ole Miss. Gonzalez released a top 8 schools in early March that consisted of Arkansas, Baylor, Colorado, Mississippi, Missouri, Notre Dame, Purdue and Texas Tech. Although he released his top schools, Gonzalez admitted that is subject to change. “Anything can change with more opportunities coming in,” he said. Along with Gonzalez, The Colony is home to receiver Keith Miller and athlete Myles Price. Gonzalez says the three have discussed playing football together at the next level. They talk about one program in particular. “We’ve all talked about it and Texas Tech is a school that we like a lot,” Gonzales said. One school that he hasn’t heard much from but is willing to listen to is TCU. The program sits just down the road from The Colony and Gonzalez says he would welcome any new interest from the Frogs. “I follow Gary Patterson and corner coach follows me but they haven’t reached out to me at all,” Gonzales said. “It would be cool to hear from them.” Gonzalez hasn’t been on an official visit yet but he has one currently scheduled for June. “I’ll probably be doing some unofficials every once in a while and I’m going to Colorado for an official on June 7-9.” As for what he’s looking for in a program, Gonzalez just wants to feel at home. 1COMMENTS “I want to bond with the coaches and where I feel most at home,” he said. Gonzalez is ranked as the No. 37 safety prospect in the nation and No. 77 overall player in Texas according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He says all schools are recruiting him at cornerback for now. TCU's 2020 recruiting class currently sits at No. 63 in the nation and No. 8 in the Big 12 according to the 247Sports composite team rankings.
  6. TCU a school in heavy consideration for 4-star Keontae Jenkins TCU hosted two official visitors this past weekend and one of the players in town is considered not only one of the top cornerbacks in the nation, he’s also a top 300 overall player. In town making his first trip to TCU was Virginia Beach (VA) Frank W. Cox four-star cornerback Keontae Jenkins. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound prospect is ranked as the No. 17 cornerback in the nation and No. 5 overall player in Virginia according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He is also ranked in the 247Sports Top247, ranked as the No. 228 overall player. Jenkins said he was impressed with what he saw during his official visit. From seeing the facilities, visiting Gary Patterson’s house and interacting with the coaching staff, everything went well. “Everything looked good,” Jenkins said of his TCU visit. “I liked talking to the staff. The relationship is developing good; I’ve been talking to them ever since they offered me; it’s been good.” Jenkins is getting recruited by Jeremy Modkins mostly because he’s the cornerbacks coach for the Frogs. However, Jenkins says he’s built a strong relationship with each of the coaches on staff. “All of them are recruiting me really,” he said. “Coach Patterson is recruiting me pretty good too. He doesn’t really do a lot of the social media stuff.” Jenkins was hosted on his visit by redshirt freshman Atanza Vongor. The four-star says he got along with the defensive back as well as the rest of the team. “I like the players down there,” he said. “We got along good.” With TCU losing three cornerbacks at the conclusion of the 2019 season including All-Big 12 corner Jeff Gladney, the position is a huge need for the Frogs’ this recruiting cycle. With 4.42 speed and tremendous ball skills, Jenkins has been told he’s a perfect fit for the Frogs’ at corner. “They tell me I fit their defense perfect,” Jenkins said. “I like playing on an island.” With 23 offers, Jenkins is one of the most coveted cornerback prospects in the nation. In addition to TCU, among the schools giving chase for Jenkins include Florida State, Virginia Tech, Auburn, Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Florida among others. Jenkins says following his visit to TCU, the Frogs are one of the top schools he’s considering. “It’s a school I’m definitely heavily considering right now along with some other schools,” Jenkins said. “I like them because they have a big need at my position and the staff. I like how the staff’s personalities are; it’s more than just football.” With one trip out of the way, Jenkins could be taking another visit. He says Michigan could get a visit but he’s unsure if that will happen. As for a decision, one could be coming sooner than later. He plans to release when he will be making his commitment possibly by Tuesday night. TCU’s class currently sits at No. 63 in the 247Sports composite team rankings and No. 8 in the Big 12. According to the 247Sports class calculator, a commitment from Jenkins would push the Frogs up nearly 20 spots to No. 45.
