New, 7 comments

There are no shortage of quarterbacks interested in TCU right now, but Brennen Wooten has been a solid commit for the Frogs since summer of 2014.

Probably my favorite thing about Brennan Wooten is that he shares a last name with a guy who was one of my favorite bass players as a kid, Victor Wooten. But Brennan has a lot of other great qualities too. For example, it's nice to have recruits that are recruiters for your school themselves.  Brennen Wooten, a 6'1", 188 pound quarterback from San Angelo Central has been that for TCU.  Since committing to TCU back In July of 2014, he's been active on Twitter in reaching out to other TCU commits and targets.  By all accounts he has also been a vocal advocate at camps like the Friday Night Lights mini camp that was held at The Carter on July 24th.

Wooten played his junior year at Marble Falls High School, about an hour West of Austin, where he threw for 3,218 yards and 24 touchdowns.  Recently, Wooten's family moved to San Angelo and it has been announced that Brennen will play for the San Angelo Central Bobcats this fall.  He should get even more exposure playing for a 6A Texas high school which Dave Campbell's Texas Football picked to finish second in their district behind Odessa Permian.

There have already been 13 schools to offer Wooten and 25 total schools that have been active in recruiting him.  The schools that have offered include Boise State, Houston, Clemson, Oregon State, Utah and Washington State.  It's safe to say that he already has a lot of options, but he has also been recruited by the likes of Alabama, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Michigan, UCLA and fellow Big 12 schools Texas, Oklahoma State, Baylor and Oklahoma.

The fact that Brennen has been verbally committed to TCU for over a year, and that he has been so solid in that commitment, has probably kept some of these other heavy hitters from extending an offer.  I would expect that if he has another great season as a senior, some of these programs could still make a push for him.  Luckily for us, it really seems like Brennen wants to be a Frog.

He is listed on 247 Sports as a pro-style quarterback and he is really good at doing the things that you expect a pro-style guy to do. In his highlights below, he's very accurate on the deep ball and does a good job of putting the ball where only his receiver can get it on throws in the corner of the end zone.  He also reads defenses well and can throw accurately into tight windows over the middle.  What's surprising is that he runs 40 time of 4.6, which makes him mobile enough to both be effective as part of the running game and to extend plays in the passing game.
