TCU added another defensive line talent to their 2019 recruiting class, just days after landing two defensive ends. JUCO defensive tackle Soni Misi pledged to the Frogs on Sunday night.
Misi hails from Santa Rosa Junior College, the same JUCO that produced TCU talents Jason Verrett and Mike Tuaua, and he fills a big need for the Frogs. As it is currently constructed, there are only five returning defensive tackles for the Frogs in 2019, one of whom is 295 pound freshman Izaih Filikitonga, another of whom is Ross Blacklock, who just missed all of 2018 with an injury.
At 6-foot-2, 305 pounds, Misi will have four years to play three at TCU, and he joins Karter Johnson as the two defensive tackle commits for this class. The Frogs also have three defensive ends in this class, and they’re probably not done taking defensive linemen.
247 Sports rates Misi as a 3-star DT, and the No. 15 JUCO DT in this class, but no other services have him rated. That matters incredibly little to TCU, though, and it shouldn’t carry much weight with TCU fans, either. Gary Patterson is known for going above and beyond to find guys who have what it takes to play in his 4-2-5 defense.
Misi also held offers from New Mexico and San Jose State.
Welcome to the Frog Fam, Soni!
