Why TCU fans should tune in

Some of the top recruits of the 2016 class have been practicing all week, and now they suit up in one of the best high-school showcases of the year, the US Army All-American Bowl. This year, one TCU commit is taking part, as running back Sewo Olonilua has done nothing but impress everyone since he donned his Army All-American uniform.

The athlete from Kingwood is rated as a 4-star running back/outside linebacker, but is likely to play running back at the collegiate level. He's been nothing but impressive out of the backfield this week in preparation for today's game.

Olonilua committed to TCU in early December, and has remained incredibly solid ever since. He also holds offers from Texas A&M, Houston, LSU, and Oklahoma, among others.

After the week of preparation for the game, Olonilua was also given the Glen Davis Award, recognizing the player of the West team who best epitomizes the Army's high standards of excellence in community service, education, and athletic excellence. The award is named after Glenn Woodward Davis, the 1946 Heisman Trophy winner.

Another name to keep an eye on during this game is Ross Blacklock, the defensive tackle from Missouri City. Once considered a Texas A&M lean, the 4-star defensive tackle is now expected to commit to TCU. He'll be making his announcement during the game.

Blacklock would be a massive addition to an already stellar recruiting class. TCU's 2016 recruiting class is currently without a defensive tackle, and with Davion Pierson graduating it's critical the Frogs get a big body in this class.
