Class of 2015 Kicker Jonathan Song Joins Up

The Fort Worth All Saints player will join former teammate Foster Sawyer at TCU, spending 2015 as a gray shirt.

Having another cannon leg loaded up for after Jaden Oberkrom's graduation is great news for TCU, which is just what they have in Fort Worth All Saints kicker Jonathan Song. Song might be my favorite unheralded recruit of all time, as he is a smallish guy with a HUGE leg. While Oberkrom looks every bit the part of a great kicker, Jonathan is just 5'9" and 160 pounds, but let me tell you, he can BOOM it.

Though he wasn't asked to kick for three very often by All Saints, who have dominated teams in the Southwest Preparatory Conference the past several years, when he was asked to, he put on a show. He hit from 60 and 50+ as a senior, and I saw him miss a 67 yarder by *that much* that had plenty of distance, but swung just wide at the tail.

A 2* recruit, he is the #18 ranked kicker in the country, and will be an excellent replacement for Oberkrom when he graduates. While not the sexiest position on the field, we have seen how important a strong and accurate kicker can be, and Song fits that profile to a T.

Jonathan had offers from SMU and Tulsa, but stuck by his pledge to the Frogs, even though he will gray shirt. He is another excellent addition to the class of 2015, and I have a feeling we will all be singing his praises (sorry, I couldn't resist the pun) a couple of years from now!
