TCU Recruiting: An Uptick

New, 9 comments

After a slow start, things are heating up pretty quickly for TCU recruiting.

USA TODAY Sports

Last week I wrote about how gut wrenching it was to watch to commits flip to Texas, and then watch a homegrown hogmollie march off to Minnesota. Watching us lose recruits was similar to taking one in the shorts, over and over again.

Oh what a difference a week and a half makes.

Since I wrote my piece last week, which I believe caught the eye of Gary Patterson (sorry, Gary), TCU has added several big assets to the recruiting class of 2014.

Here's how the class of 2014 currently breaks down (courtesy of HornedFrogBlitz.com):

The latest additions of Nick Orr and Frank Kee are especially huge.

Nick Orr, a cornerback from Desoto, committed to TCU on Monday, choosing the Horned Frogs over Baylor, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State. Orr is expected to play safety at the next level, and a lot of people are hinting that he could be the next Elisha Olabode.

JUCO OG Frank Kee committed to the Frogs on Wednesday, and is rated the #1 JUCO OG in the country. Kee was recruited by TCU in high school, but didn't qualify academically. He's finishing his time at Tyler JC this fall, and will be on campus in the spring. Kee committed to the Frogs over Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Baylor and Oklahoma State.
