Kerry Johnson signs with TCU: National Signing Day 2017

The sleeper pickup is a great addition to the Frog Fam.

TCU commit Kerry Johnson made it official this morning, sending in his signed Letter of Intent to TCU. The two-star safety prospect out of Houston Westfield is your typical under-the-radar late addition to the class that we have come to expect from Gary Patterson.

While sometimes guys like this don’t work out, other times they do. Take, for example, late additions like Andy Dalton, KaVontae Turpin, and Jerry Hughes.

Johnson struggled with grades, but got eligible and received a big offer from the Horned Frogs on his official visit two weekends ago. He committed almost immediately, and has the chance to develop into an impact player for TCU.

Standing at 6-1, 180 pounds, he’s a brutal hitter and a good coverage guy in the defensive backfield, and reminds me a lot of Marvin White. Most importantly, though, it’s an absolute necessity to have depth in your secondary for a 4-2-5 defense, and Johnson absolutely provides that, as he joins secondary bunkmates Garret Wallow and Noah Daniels in this class.

Welcome Johnson to the Frog Fam, and check out his hudl below!
