Meet the Commits: George Baltimore

George Baltimore, what an awesome name. One of the newest Frogs is already a baller in my eyes.

Baltimore fits the mold of a TCU safety; good size, speed and smart. Baltimore was one of the top safeties in the country out of Mansfield, where he was a three-year starter at safety. He'll start his career at TCU likely in the weak safety spot. Look for Baltimore to redshirt his freshman year and make a serious contribution beginning in 2014.

-Baltimore, a 3-star guy out of Mansfield, picked the Horned Frogs over 16 other offers, including schools like Arkansas, Baylor, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.

From Wescott Eberts:

Capable of turning opportunities into interceptions due to his instincts -- and interceptions into touchdowns due to that aforementioned playmaking ability -- Baltimore is known as the type of player who plays fast in pads, though his overall speed even in pads is just above average for his position. In short areas, Baltimore is excellent, but in the open field, he doesn't have the extra gear that defines the best athletes in the secondary or at the offensive skills positions.

In run support, Baltimore is a physical player willing to take on ballcarriers, wrap up and get his legs churning to discourage yards after contact.

- Ultimately though, the most important part of Baltimore's game is the strength of his name. I could see myself voting for him, should he ever run for president or something. I mean seriously, George Baltimore for President just feels right, doesn't it?
