Coy McMillon Signs with TCU: National Signing Day 2017

A big, versatile playmaker joins the Frog Fam.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Texas Christian Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

TCU got itself a player all the way from the moon!

Just kidding. He’s from Abilene.

(Although on Twitter he lists his location as “the moon.” That goober.)

Either way, it’s officially official. Three-star tight end Coy McMillon signed his NLI on Wednesday, joining the Frog fam from — not the moon — but Abilene High School.

Regardless of where he’s from, he’s certainly a big get for the Frogs. A really big get. At 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds, McMillon is versatile player who may wind up playing offensive tackle, despite being listed as a tight end. TCU’s offense doesn’t traditionally rely on tight ends much, so a position change will be anything but surprising, as Frog fans know.

McMillon has experience playing defensive tackle as well — another pressing need for the Frogs. During his senior year, he totaled 68 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and three sacks.

What’s funny is that McMillon almost didn’t become a Horned Frog. He was committed to Tulsa at first, turning down offers from schools like Abilene Christian and Arkansas State. But after a first-hand visit to Funky Town, he switched his commitment to TCU on Jan. 15. Since then, he proudly took to Twitter and pinned a photo of himself in a TCU jersey throwing up the Frog sign, being anything but “coy” about his college choice.

So he’s not from the moon, but his decision to become a Frog certainly sends us over it.

Welcome to the Frog fam, Coy!
