The Horned Frogs landed another big man for the class of 2016 on Monday, as 3-star OT Lucas Niang made his announcement.

Niang selected TCU over Miami and Auburn, who were both pushing hard for his services. He is coming off of an official visit to Miami this past weekend, prior to which he noted he would be making his decision early this week.

At 6'6" and nearly 300 pounds, Niang is a big body on the offensive line who isn't afraid to get physical, possesses good footwork, and projects to be a very good tackle or possibly excellent guard. Niang is rated as the No. 3 recruit out of the state of Connecticut, and the No. 48 offensive tackle recruit in the country, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Niang is the fourth offensive lineman in TCU's 2016 class, joining JUCO transfer Chris Gaynor, and commits Austin Myers and Kellton Hollins.
