TCU Bolsters Defensive Line with Commitment No. 22

Trinity Euless (TX) High School senior defensive end Tipa Galeai ended his recruitment Thursday by officially committing to TCU.

Galeai announced his decision to don the purple and white via Twitter on Thursday night.

Gary Patterson has added another key piece to his 2015 class with the addition of Galeai, a three-star weak side defensive end from a Trinity Euless program which consistently produces top D-1 players.  The Frogs are no stranger at the school, having recruited and landed wide receiver Brandon Carter and offensive tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (Big V).

The 6'5, 220 pound Galeai is a cousin of Vaitai and while I don't know how much of a role that played in the commitment of Galeai, it had to help.

Galeai chose TCU over 12 other offers, including Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Washington and Mizzouri.

When watching Galeai on film, the aspect of his game which sticks out to me is his length and quickness. He will definitely need to add some bulk but that shouldn't bee too difficult to do with a redshirt season under head strength coach Don Sommer.

TCU now has 22 commitments for the 2015 class, which includes 10 players slated for the defensive side of the ball. Galeai will likely join defensive Breylin Mitchell and defensive tackle Joseph Broadnax on a defensive line which should continue the tradition of excellent play.
