TCU gained a massive addition to the #CarterBoys17 on National Signing Day, when athlete Michael Onyemaobi committed to the Horned Frogs over Nebraska, and Iowa State. The 38th ranked athlete for the class of 2017, Onyemaobi was originally committed to Cal, prior to the firing of head coach Sonny Dykes. but decommitted after Dykes’ firing to open his recruitment back up.

Eventually, the choices for Onyemaobi narrowed to TCU, Nebraska, and Iowa State, with the defensive back taking official visits to TCU and Nebraska to close out the recruiting period. He admitted to being blown away by his visit to TCU, but seemed to thoroughly enjoy his trip to Lincoln as well. His committment is a big win for the Horned Frogs, as his 6-1,190 pound frame adds some more size and speed to TCU ‘s secondary.

Over the course of his recruitment, Onyemaobi received 21 offers, from schools like TCU, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Arizona State, UCLA, Cal, Colorado, and Arizona, making him a very coveted piece of the puzzle for a lot of schools.

Onyemaobi’s speed and size are what set him apart in the secondary, as he has the ability to keep up with the fastest receivers, while also matching up with big outside receivers in size.

No doubt, Onyemaobi is a huge addition to the recruiting class of 2017. Welcome to the Frog Fam!
