TCU landed yet another Top 100 player in the state of Texas on Wednesday, when offensive guard Brannon Brown signed his NLI.

Brown, rated as the No. 90 player in the state, and the No. 44 offensive guard in this cycle, has been committed to TCU since early March. He also held offers from Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, and was hearing from Notre Dame, Oregon, and Washington before shutting his recruitment down.

Standing at 6-5, 290, Brown has been a first-team all-district guy since he was a sophomore. His older brother, Baylen, played at Texas Tech, but Brannon decided to cut his own path at the collegiate level.

Brown is the only offensive guard in TCU’s 2019 class, but that just means he’s all the more important. TCU has a handful of capable guards on the roster, but they lose Chris Gaynor and Trey Elliot to graduation, leaving them with Cordel Iwuagwu (who spend most of 2018 injured), Wes Harris, and current freshmen Ian Burnette and Esteban Avila.

Welcome to the Frog Fam, Brannon!
