In less than two full seasons at TCU, Raegan Pebley is already finding unparalleled success on the recruiting trail. With four ESPNW Top 100 recruits committed, her 2016 Class currently ranks 15th in the nation. Now, Pebley is trying to make her mark on the Class of 2017.
The Frogs picked up some great news yesterday as four-star wing Lexi Gordon trimmed her list of prospective schools to four: Baylor, Connecticut, Texas, and TCU. Pebley and the Frogs find themselves among three other schools that have claimed 11 of the last 16 National Championships.

Gordon is currently a junior at Fort Worth's L.D. Bell High School, less than 20 miles from the TCU campus. She is ranked as the 34th best prospect in the nation by ESPNW, as well as the 5th best at her position. Gordon is the daughter of two Horned Frog basketball greats. Her mother, Kim Altman, played at TCU in the early 1990's while her father, Myron, competed under Moe Iba at the same time. In fact, Lexi wears #34 at L.D. Bell to honor her father, who wore the same number during his time at TCU.
There's no question Pebley is putting the pieces in place for the Frogs to compete at a high level for years to come. The addition of Gordon could elevate TCU to new heights. Stay tuned as we near closer to Gordon's decision date!
