TCU football recruit will announce choice at gravesite | The Star-Telegram

The four star defensive lineman out of Louisiana has TCU, Alabama, and LSU in his final three, but will announce today in a unique way.

Mathis, instead, will make his choice known at the gravesite where Tyrell Cameron is buried. Cameron, 16, died in September, 2015, after breaking his neck while covering a punt for his Franklin Parish High School team.

Mathis attends neighboring Neville High. Cameron’s death shook schools and communities throughout northeast Louisiana.

In an under the radar signing, the Frogs reached out to California to sign a top rated tight end. What’s a tight end you may ask? I guess we will find out what Sonny Cumbie has planned this fall.

Williams, 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, had been committed to Fresno State. Fullerton was ranked as the national junior college champion in 2016 after being selected No. 1 or co-No. 1 in final rankings.

During the 2016 season, Williams had 22 catches for 392 yards and 5 touchdowns, according to HornedFrogsBlitz.

The Frogs could see their class rise to a top 25 national ranking in the next two days, as they have closed as strongly as anybody in the country over the past few weeks.

The Frogs will have to beat out LSU and Alabama to get him, but they got the last word; Mathis was on campus in Fort Worth this weekend. Offensive guard Quazzel White, safety Elijah Walker and cornerback Michael Onyemaobi are also possible late additions that could push TCU’s class closer to the top 25.
