Frogs add juco defender with commitment of DE/OLB Parker Workman

TCU got some much needed help when the Utah native announced his decision to come to Fort Worth.

Workman looks a little different than he did in 2014, but the kid can still ball.

TCU continues to attack areas of need on the recruiting trail, getting a pledge from Snow College OLB/DE Parker Workman on Friday night.

Workman, who raved about his visit earlier this month, was deciding between the Frogs and Hawaii, but seemed sold on Fort Worth and Gary Patterson’s system after seeing it in person just a week ago. “It was absolutely amazing. They treated me so well and had such great hospitality,” he told Jeremy Clark of 247 Sports. “The school is beautiful and so are the facilities. The coaching staff is one of a kind. They represent a very ethical hard working culture.”

Though it seemed Workman was a perfect fit for the Frogs, who lose both their defensive ends to graduation, who can blame the 6’3”, 240 pound player for taking his official visit to Hawaii, on the Rainbow Warriors dime?

Workman is the third commit at defensive end for Patterson in the class of 2019, joining Colt Ellison and Adam Plant Jr. He is the 22nd commit overall in the Frogs’ 30th ranked class - which currently sits third in the Big 12. He is coming off a season that saw him record 49 tackles and 11.5 sacks, and will be an early enrollee at TCU, meaning he will be eligible for spring ball. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
