Meet The New Guys: Joseph Noteboom

Leading up to the 2013 TCU Football season, we will be profiling the newest Horned Frogs on campus who were all a part of the 2013 recruiting class. Next up is OL Joseph Noteboom.

NAME Joseph Noteboom
HEIGHT/WEIGHT 6'5" / 295 lbs.
HOMETOWN Plano, Texas
247 COMPOSITE STAR RANKING Three (***) Stars

Noteboom is relatively new to playing along the offensive line. He played tight end as a sophomore and switched to defensive end and guard as a junior. As a senior he played solely at left tackle. Noteboom weighed 255 at the end of his senior football season and since then he's gained nearly 20 pounds. If you're looking for a tackle that can move his feet, Noteboom is your guy. It should be noted that Noteboom was a club hockey player until he was 15.

Jeremy Clark,

- Noteboom, a former defensive end, was moved to offensive tackle this summer where his body and athleticism is a perfect template for a future stud. The tackle position has evolved over the years, from a power position to a speed position, needing guys with long arms and quick feet in order to shut down stud defensive ends. AKA, Noteboom.

- The offensive line position is an area of weakness for the Frogs as far as depth is concerned, with only one tackle position locked down in camp right now and none of the backup positions assigned. Will Noteboom play this year? He could, but a RS is looking possible if not likely.

- One note: Noteboom could move again. With the total number of offensive linemen coming into TCU in the 2014 class, Noteboom could see a position change again in the coming years, maybe back to TE or perhaps back to the defensive line. Or, if he takes to the offensive line position, he could provide depth for years to come. He is just another super athletic kid that Gary loves to have on his teams.
