TCU Recruiting 2015: Final Touches on a Great Class

New, 47 comments

TCU has put together an incredible 2015 recruiting class, but with a few spots left there's still an opportunity to land some more great kids.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

TCU's 2015 recruiting class has the potential to be the best one yet, and with National Signing Day three weeks away it's crunch time. The recruiting dead period ends tonight at midnight, which means we should hear a lot of news starting tomorrow morning.

In preparation for that, let's take a glance at where the class of 2015 currently stands, and a few remaining targets that TCU could get.

This 2015 class is currently headlined by a trio of commits already on campus. 4-star cornerback Deshawn Raymond (6'1", 180), and 3-star linebackers Alec Dunham (6'1", 213) and Mike Freeze (6'3", 220) are already on campus and attending meetings. Raymond, a Scout Top 300 player, was a highly coveted recruit, holding offers from Arkansas, Florida State, Mississippi State, Georgia, Nebraska, Kansas State, and a handful of others.

Freeze is currently recovering from shoulder surgery, so it's unknown if he'll be able to participate in spring ball, but having him and Dunham on campus a semester early should do wonders for the depth at linebacker in 2015.

Two other four star recruits are also committed. South Oak Cliff wide receiver J.F. Thomas (6'4", 185) is the No. 5 wide receiver in the state of Texas. Defensive end Breylin Mitchell (6'4", 255) was TCU's first commit for the 2015 class, pledging back in July of 2013.

Here's a look at the full class as it stands today:

TCU still has a few slots left in this class, and maybe a few more than expected due to the departures of Chris Hackett and Jordan Moore. Here are a few targets to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.

5-Star DT Daylon Mack, Gladewater, TX

Daylon Mack is arguably the biggest recruit uncommitted at this point. Holding over 20 offers, Mack has narrowed his choices down TCU, Texas A&M and Auburn. The Frogs are currently the leader, according to Mack, but with an official visit Texas A&M on the docket, TCU needs to make the most of Daylon's unofficial visit to Fort Worth on January 31.

Mack is rated as the No. 9 recruit in the 2015 class, according to Scout.com, and has the size (6'1"/330) and skill set (check out his HUDL) to contribute as a true freshman.

3-Star ATH Keith Washington, Prattville, Alabama

TCU just offered Washington earlier this week, and while it's unclear what position he'll play at the next level, it would be wise for whoever he commits to to find him a spot on the field. At 6'2"/170 Washington has the height to play QB at the collegiate level, but with his 4.30 speed, he may be better utilized at either wide receiver or cornerback.

3-Star WR Terrell Chatman, Baton Rouge, LA

Chatman is currently committed to the University of Miami, but the 6'3" receiver from Baton Rouge has an official visit to TCU scheduled for January 16. He also has official visits to Arizona State and Miami scheduled for the following weekends. Chatman would be the 6th wide receiver commit in the 2015 class, but as we've seen in this offense, you can never have too many big guys on the outside.
