Waxahachie wide receiver Jalen Reagor has decided to stay close to home, and that’s great news for Frog fans. The 5’11” burner will bring his 4.40 speed to Fort Worth next fall, as he announced Thursday evening via twitter.

Reagor, who committed to Oklahoma back in March, boasts 21 offers, including Texas Tech, Alabama, Texas, A&M, Baylor, Notre Dame, and a host of others. A four star prospect who is the 14th ranked receiver in the country and a top 20 recruit in Texas, Reagor will join current high school teammate Kenedy Snell and former QB Jordan Kitna in Funky Town. Recruited by superstar coach Curtis Luper, Reagor was also undoubtably influenced by those he knows on the team as well as the opportunity to play in front of his family and friends for the next four years.
Reagor becomes the highest rated recruit in the Frogs’ class, narrowly edging out his likely future QB, DeSoto’s Shawn Robinson. That combination will give opposing defensive players and coaches nightmares for the foreseeable future, while igniting the scoreboard often for TCU. An exceptional route-runner with speed to burn, Reagor has a chance to be special in Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meacham’s high flying offense. He has great ball-skills and sticky hands, with enough size and strength to handle physical coverage, though those that press tend to get beat. He is the fourth four star commit in the class of 2017, and should be a great recruiter in his own right for the program.
Reagor, an Under Armour All-American, made his official visit on October 1st, watching the Frogs take on the Sooners. Though TCU ultimately lost that game despite mounting a furious comeback, they won a different battle - on the sideline. Welcome to the Frog Fam, Jalen. This is going to be fun.
