2018 Recruiting thread sponsored by the TCU Show Window

Recommended Posts

This guy is visiting according to his twitter.  Jordan Allen, DE from City College of SF.  He is 6'5" 230 and says he runs a 4.58.  He could be a real under the radar JUCO guy like Dawson or Verrett.  Offers from Hawaii, Iowa St, SJSU.  Has 3 to play 3 so he must have not played last season.

Really, REALLY need to land this guy. Most, if not all DEs GP wanted outside of Mathis have committed elsewhere.

Yeah, he would step into the vacancy left by Chambers when he transferred.  3 to play 3 is huge for a JUCO.  All our best JUCO transfers have had 3 years of eligibility -- Verrett, Tuaua and Dawson.

Free article from 247 on Jordan Allen.  Played WR for a really bad high school program.  UC-Davis saw him and recruited him to play DE/OLB.  He spent one season there redshirting and learning the position and the coaching staff got fired so he left and went to a JUCO.  UC-Davis is a very good school academically so he's not your typical JUCO who couldn't qualify and will have problems once he's at TCU.  This kid could be the steal of the recruiting season.

Jordan Allen commits

Since it became public he was going to visit TCU, he received offers from Ole Miss, Arkansas and Iowa St.  Like I said before, he has 3 seasons of eligibility and will be here in January.   I think this kid will be a huge addition with us losing Boesen after this season.

In terms of needs, this might be one of the biggest commits yet. Allen's upside is enormous. He is an insane athlete. Great find and get by this staff.

Help vote Frog commits Ben Wilson (LB) and Tevailance Hunt (WR) into the Under Armour All-America game!

 

 

 

BUMP. Keep voting y'all!!! Let's help get another Frog in the All-America game.

 

Unfortunately, they are on the same side of the bracket, so both cannot go. But let's make sure one does.

You can thank his momma, she was a big factor in his commitment to TCU.

He had offers from Ole Miss, Arkie, and ISU, with Oregon and WashSt close to offering.

 

Really excited about this guy.

 

Yeah, his recruiting was about to blow up.  He got four Power 5 offers between 10/2 and 10/10 and was about to get a lot more based on only 4-5 games worth of JUCO film.  Remember, he redshirted as a freshman at UC-Davis and never played defense in high school so this guy was about as under the radar as they come.  We may have to fight off some big boys out west (UW and USC) for him before it's all said and done but mama appears to be in our corner and he obviously loves his mama.

Jordan Allen just got rated a 4* by 247.  He was previously not rated because no one had seen him before this season.  His rating makes him the #10 JUCO player in the country and the #1 JUCO DE.  And, we get him for 3 years instead of just 2!

Well that didn't last long. Jordan Allen decommits. Committed not even a month ago (23 days).

18 year-old kids. They don't know what they'll be doing this time tomorrow, much less next year.

I have a friend that was married for only 15 days

 

I had a friend who got married and my wife refused to buy the wedding gift because she said we had 6 months to do it and she was going to wait and see if it lasted that long.  It didn't.
