TCU flipped a defender to the good guys on Wednesday, when Kansas commit Khari Coleman switched his pledge from the Jayhawks and signed with the Horned Frogs.

Coleman, a Louisiana native, is rated as the #27 weak side defensive end in the 2020 class, holding offers from Tennessee, Navy, Kansas State, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, and others.

He originally committed to Les Miles and the Jayhawks in June, but had been listening to overtures from TCU for quite some time. It’s hard not to when you’re a defensive player, and you look at Gary Patterson’s track record.

Coleman is the second defensive lineman in TCU’s 2020 class, joining fellow Louisiana native Patrick Jenkins in the trenches. Technically Jaquaze Sorrells could be on this list too, but he doesn’t count towards TCU’s 2020 class.

Standing at 6-2, 217 pounds Coleman has some bulking up to do, but he should have time given TCU’s depth at defensive end currently includes Ochaun Mathis, Colt Ellison, Adam Plant, Brandon Bowen (who I still believe will be a difference maker at some point) and Parker Workman.
