TCU Recruiting 2015: J.F. Thomas Flips to Texas Tech

The 4-star wide receiver out of South Oak Cliff was going to have a very hard time qualifying.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Well it's not great news, but it's not totally unexpected. 4-star wide receiver J.F. Thomas,'s 39th best receiver in the 2015 class, has switched his commitment from TCU to Texas Tech. The receiver out of South Oak Cliff High School was going to struggle to qualify academically for TCU, and still may not qualify for Tech. Obviously, it isn't outside the realm of possibility for him to get a qualifying test score, but it would be surprising if that happens.

Despite all of that, Thomas has had a lot on his mind lately. The kid's mother has been very ill over the past year, and I can't imagine what that would be like as an 18 year old. My prayers go out to J.F. and his family, and I hope his mother recovers.

Thomas stands at 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds and runs a 4.55-40 time. If he does qualify for Tech, he's going to be a force for the next few years.

Best of luck, J.F.
