4-star running back Fabian Franklin has signed with TCU, and with that received NLI, the Frogs have landed every current commit expected to sign today.

Franklin, a long time Mississippi State commit, flipped to TCU earlier in December, once Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen left for Florida. Franklin is an incredibly strong runner, and while he lacks elite speed, he has incredible elusiveness.
At 5-11, 207, he’s also a bigger back, something TCU was in need of with this class.
Franklin is rated as the No. 14 running back in the 2018 class, and is the No. 2 recruit from the state of Mississippi. Beyond the Frogs and Mississippi State, he also held offers from Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Tennessee, and Ole Miss.
