After last weekend's spring game.festivities, expect the recruiting process to heat up in the coming weeks.

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

While I personally wasn't able to make it to the spring game this past Friday, plenty of recruits were able to make it to campus, and several 2016 signees and 2017 commits were among the list of visitors. This upcoming weekend, several recruits for both 2017 and 2018 will be on campus, which we will go into detail with here shortly. Next week, we will take a look at 17 remaining targets to complete the class, and while it will be a smaller class, I fully expect it to be the most talented class Patterson has signed in his time here at TCU.

Baron Browning Releases Top 10

As was released last night, Browning dropped his top ten, and it is LOADED. Along with the Horned Frogs, the list includes Alabama, LSU, Texas, Michigan, USC, Notre Dame, UCLA, and Oklahoma. Browning has been adamant about it being an open competition, and as we said yesterday that Texas was his leader, the on-field performance of both Texas and Texas A&M will effect greatly the ability that TCU will have to close strong, as Bud Elliot mentioned earlier this week

Spring Game Reaction and Visitors

I spoke to 2017 commit RJ Sneed about what he thought of the spring game this past weekend. Sneed was excited to see the way the ball was spread out, and he is just as intrigued to see where the QB competition ends up as y'all are.

As for visitors, Aaron Moffitt, Drue Jackson, and Justin Rogers highlight a strong list of visitors from this past weekend. Rogers and Jackson are both class of 2018, while Moffitt is a 2017 DE from Louisiana, who Coach Fitch is very high on, but is yet to offer.

Visitors for the Weekend

Visiting this weekend we have fast-rising 2017 CB Adam Beck. Beck has had an impressive camp circuit, and I would not be surprised to see him get an offer while he is on campus.

As for the Class of 2018 visitors, the list is loaded. Starting with Ta'zhawn Henry, the list also includes a large group of talent from Houston Lamar HS, including Al'Vonte Woodard, Anthony Cook, D'Shawn Jamison, and Joshua Landry will all be on campus tomorrow.

Miscellaneous Notes

Kobe Boyce, a recent Texas commit after blowing up with several P5 offers in a matter of days, would still love to have an offer from the Horned Frogs.

Xavier Newman, another recruit who has recently seen his stock skyrocket with offers from both Texas A&M and Texas Tech, has told me that TCU would "be a big offer for me." He is scheduled to be in College Station this weekend.

Kary Vincent Jr., a 4-star CB from Memorial HS in Port Arthur, TX is planning on visiting next weekend.

While Alex Perry was unable to make it out this past weekend for the spring game, Perry fully plans on getting back on campus in the coming weeks/months.

Recent Offers

Hunter Echols (6'4 220)

Echols is a DE from California who is currently committed to UCLA. Echols would fit in beautifully with the defense run at TCU with his versatility and athleticism.

Damion Daniels (6'1 315)

Daniels is a DT from Bishop Dunne HS in Dallas, and would be a huge get for TCU. Daniels has other reported offers from Oklahoma State, Baylor, LSU, and Michigan among several others.

Joel Honigford (6'6 250)

Joel is an offensive lineman from Ohio, and with me being nearby I was able to get in contact with him. He has visited several schools such as Oklahoma, Auburn, and Penn State just to name a few. He has made plans to visit the Horned Frogs in the summer, but doesn't have an exact date picked out yet.

Colten Blanton (2018)

Blanton is another big-time offensive lineman, and plays for Cypress Ranch in Cypress, TX. He has other early offers from Texas A&M and Oklahoma, with several others showing interest
