Former LSU WR John Diarse transferring to TCU

First Doug Meacham says "no" to College Station, now a great addition to a brilliant corps.

You may have gone to bed last night and thought Man, I'm glad Doug Meacham stayed and snubbed A&M. There can't possibly be an icing on the cake for this. Well, I'm thrilled to tell you that you can have that icing on that cake; that icing is now former LSU WR, John Diarse.

Diarse was a highly-touted recruit out of Louisiana, and one of the more highly-touted WRs in the country in the 2013 class. The 6'1" receiver will be immediately eligible, as he graduated and will be pursuing his Master's Degree at TCU. He will  fit in brilliantly as an outside receiver on a team that lost some great ones–Josh Doctson, Kolby Listenbee, and Jajaun Story.

The kid from Monroe and former ESPN 300 recruit had TCU among his initial choices for colleges before deciding on his home state's most prolific school. Out of high school, Diarse's biggest attributes were big play potential, solid speed and his blocking ability, but after some SEC time under his belt, he's bulked up and should thus bring an even more physical side to Fort Worth as well. Above all things, Diarse is just another good sign for TCU in 2016; it's a reload, don't rebuild mentality.

Frog Fans should be very happy for this. Credit Horned Frogs Blitz's Jeremy Clark for being on the money as usual and getting the story first. Now the real question–will he wear No. 9?
