TCU is closing strong as they put the finishing touches on their 2019 recruiting class. #CarterBoys19 got a lot stronger on Monday with the commitment of 4-star linebacker Dylan Jordan, from Pittsburgh, KS. He’ll be able to sign his NLI on February 6th.

Jordan committed to TCU over Nebraska. He went on an official visit to Lincoln over the weekend, but was visited by Gary Patterson on Sunday night.
Rated as the No. 14 OLB in this class, and the overall No. 196 player, according to 247Sports, Jordan also held offers from Auburn, Utah, Kansas State, and several others. Jordan is the third linebacker to join TCU’s 2019 class, joining signees Wyatt Harris and Zach Marcheselli
Standing at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, Jordan has a fantastic frame, and great lateral speed. He’s exactly the type of athlete that TCU’s defense has depended on at linebacker for years.
Getting quality linebackers was critical for this recruiting class, too. TCU loses Ty Summers, Jawuan Johnson, Arico Evans, and Alec Dunham to graduation this year, and will lose Montrel Wilson to graduation after next season.
Meanwhile, sophomore linebacker Garrett Wallow was forced to play safety for the last half of the season this year due to a slew of injuries. Making sure the Frogs are deep at linebacker moving forward was a priority for the staff.
With the addition of Jordan, TCU’s class moves to No. 28 in the country, up two spots from No. 30, while staying at No. 3 in the Big 12.
Welcome to the Frog Fam, Dylan!
