Momentum keeps picking up for the TCU men's basketball program, as 2016 4-star point guard Jaylen Fisher has committed to the Horned Frogs.
Fisher was originally committed to UNLV, but quickly opened his recruitment back up once then-UNLV assistant coach, now TCU assistant coach, Ryan Miller left the program. It was widely speculated that Fisher would look at TCU because of his relationship with Miller, but quite a few other programs had reached out to the Bolton, Tennessee product to gauge his interest.
Ultimately, his relationship with Miller won out, and Fisher will be a Frog.
Fisher is rated a 4-star recruit by pretty much every recruiting service, and he becomes the highest-rated recruit to ever commit to the Horned Frogs. He beat out former 4-star center Karviar Shepherd by just a few rating points (.9743 to .9714), according to 247Sports.com
Fisher joins a TCU program that desperately needed help at the point guard position, after the platoon of Chauncey Collins, Michael Williams, and Dalton Dry struggled at the PG position. This will allow Collins to move to his more natural shooting guard position, where he'll be able to focus more on his shot, while Fisher can facilitate the offense.
This is a huge, huge pickup for Jamie Dixon and Co. who seem to already be making waves in the recruiting world.
We'll have more on the basketball recruiting front coming up later this week, but for now let's all welcome Jaylen to the fold.
