Malcolm Kelly and co put the full-court press on one of their top targets in the class of 2020 as Early Signing Day drew near, and it paid off with the signing of Quentin Johnston today.
It's official, @MrJohnston____ is a Horned Frog!! Welcome to the Bomb Squad... #TCU20for20 #NSD20 pic.twitter.com/fw4pw8fw4R— TCU Football (@TCUFootball) December 18, 2019
Johnston, the highest-rated player in the Frogs’ 2020 class, is a huge get for TCU, adding a big-framed body to a receiving corp that loses their best player with Jalen Reagor’s decision to go pro after his junior year. At 6’4” and 180 pounds, the lanky receiver is a powerful athlete who is also a high-level basketball player in Temple, TX.
Choosing the Frogs from 11 offers, the top 100 player (#69 overall, nice) had been committed to the Horns since August, but had a change of heart Monday night when he flipped to the Frogs. He was also recruited by the likes of Baylor, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, and Arizona.
Johnston is one of four wide receivers committed in the class of 2020, joining juco superstar Danny Gray and high school standouts Caleb Medford and Blake Nowell. After a disappointing 2019 from that unit, adding a talent like Johnston can only serve to improve the passing game. TCU will roll out what should be an impressive group for Max Duggan next fall, with proven talents like Taye Barber and Pro Wells, and young guys like Tevailance Hunt and John Stephens showing flashes over the course of last season.
