TCU added signee #21 Wednesday night when Deshawn McCuin of Jacksonville made it official to the Frogs.
“Deshawn is a versatile, athletic player with a high football IQ. He was a two-way player on offense and defense who will make the transition to play safety at TCU.” #CarterBoys19 pic.twitter.com/bt5kJOEFHP— TCU Football (@TCUFootball) December 20, 2018
McCuin is a 6’0”, 177 pound three star prospect out of Jacksonville High in Jacksonville, TX who played both sides of the ball in high school. He had six offers, but TCU was one of only two FBS opportunities, making him a classic Gary Patterson defensive find.
An exceptional athlete, McCuin brings 4.5 speed to the defensive secondary along with a 39” vertical. He committed to TCU back in June, saying “that’s been my dream school since 6th grade. Their family atmosphere just [drew] me to them and just being there in the family atmosphere will be good for me in the next four years.” McCuin played cornerback, quarterback, and receiver for the Indians, earning the 9-5A Division 2 Utility Player of the Year.
Deshawn joins Donavann Collins, Nook Bradford, and Tony Wallace in the defensive secondary in the class of 2019. TCU returns starters Innis Gaines, Trevon Moehrig, and Vernon Scott next season, along with a host of young players. Welcome him to the Frog Fam!
