The vast majority of the current football roster comes from the Metroplex, and this week the staff placed a major priority on continuing that tradition in both the class of 2017 and 2018 with the creation of #FrogFrenzy this past week. All 9 of Coach Patterson's assistants were in the Metroplex this week, and with TCU being the only school in the area, keeping these supremely talented student-athletes home is crucial. Throughout the week various members of the staff have tweeted out the importance of the players already on the roster from the DFW area. Here are just a few of them:

Grant Delpit Commits to the Army All-American Game
While it is unknown when Delpit will decide where he will play his college football, he has announced his intention to honor his family members and compete in the Army All-American Game in January 2017. Delpit is a big-time target for the staff, and the 4-star S from Houston Lamar holds other offers from USC, Notre Dame, LSU, and Alabama among several others. According to 247Sports, he is a top-five S nationally, and a top 60 player overall in the country.
Kary Vincent Visit/New Offer
Kary Vincent Jr. is one of the top targets on the defensive side of the ball for Coach P and the rest of the staff. Vincent was on campus last weekend, and while he has been reserved about the status of his recruitment, getting him on campus was huge, especially for two days.
Earlier this week, he picked up his 25th offer from Arizona. The rest of his list includes schools such as Florida, Michigan, Texas, and Ohio State.
Next week, Frogs O' War will have a Thursday article going in-depth on the top 15 remaining targets, and the chances the staff has at landing each one. To any readers in Houston, prayers have been sent your way this week from the state of Ohio, and they will continue to come this weekend. #FrogFam
