Funky Town 15 Gets Another Resident - Tre'Vontae Hights is a Frog

The small school athlete was an early commit, but TCU had to fend off interest from a certain rival to hold on to him.

At 6'2" and 175 pounds, Yoakum athlete Tre'Vontae Hights was a matchup nightmare for opponents throughout his high school career. Hights, who played QB and safety in high school, had over 3,000 yards of offense and 41 TDs his senior season, to go along with 87 tackles and five interceptions as a defender. A prototypical GP recruit, Hights starred on the offensive side of the ball and showed off his impressive athleticism as a dual threat QB, but will likely play safety for the Frogs. He fits the mold of Sam Carter - the likely NFL draft pick and TCU star who was also a great QB on the high school level.

With 4.49 speed, Hights could be a candidate for early contributions for the Frogs, who have several key pieces to replace on the back end of the defense. His strength and ability to change directions with speed and fluidity should serve him well as a cover guy, but he has shown the ability to make the big hit as well.

TCU was his first offer, though Baylor and other area schools showed strong interest. Coming from a small school may have hurt his profile, but this is definitely a kid with serious Frog Factor.
