How South Korean siblings have helped Max Duggan prepare to be future at QB for TCU | The Star-Telegram

I met Duggan’s family at the Elite 11 Finals, and they are wonderful people. Excited to have him in Fort Worth.

His dad taught him the fundamentals of football. His siblings are part of the reason he’s a natural leader in the locker room, understanding every team is comprised of players from various backgrounds.

“Having a brother and sister adopted from South Korea, you can be comfortable with other people’s personalities, other people’s traits, you’re definitely going to realize that not everyone is the same,” Max said last weekend as he came to Fort Worth for his official visit to TCU.

“That’s helped me a lot being able to relate and having those two helped me relate during the recruiting process and even right now being able to talk and be comfortable with a lot of people.

“As a quarterback, you’ve got to be able to talk to everyone and you’ve got to be able to communicate with everyone.”

It’s a great group, top to bottom.

TCU signed 21 members of its 2019 class Wednesday. The class included players from eight different states and five players from the junior college ranks. Three committed players -- Newton athlete Tamauzia Brown, Newton RB Darwin Barlow and Jacksonville S Deshawn McCuin -- did not sign Wednesday.

Hanging on to Coker was massive for the Frogs.

Coker is expected to push for playing time as early as next fall, particularly with the inconsistencies TCU’s offensive line showed throughout the season.

“Coker is one of the more underrated offensive linemen in the nation in my opinion,” recruiting czar and Horned Frog Blitz publisher Jeremy Clark said. “Prior to his senior season, he worked hard to lose weight and become more mobile. The hard work paid off as he lost nearly 40 pounds and his footwork improved dramatically. There’s a reason programs including Texas were trying to steal him from TCU late in the process.

“He will be a guy I feel that will remind folks of Matt Pryor. He will ultimately play tackle, but he’s got a big enough frame and he’s strong enough to play inside, just like Pryor did. TCU always wants to have at least eight to 10 guys that can fill its depth chart on the offensive line, and I feel like he will be one of those guys to have an immediate impact.”
