It’s been a solid couple of weeks for the TCU Football staff heading into tomorrow’s National Signing Day, as the Frogs closed their 2019 class with a solid run of talented players - especially on the defensive side of the ball. The latest commitment is likely the last, as Kee’yon Stewart’s announcement puts the Frogs at their scholarship limit for this year.
Stewart is a talented defensive back out of North Shore in Houston who chose TCU from 21 offers, including Louisville, Houston, Washington, and Baylor. His final two came down to TCU Texas Tech, and Utah, with the Frogs winning the battle over the Red Raiders and Utes for the defensive standout.
At 6’0” tall, Stewart is a bigger player in the secondary, though Patterson and co will certainly want to add to his 160 pound frame. With 4.41 speed and a championship resume, he is the kind of player GP loves to add late in the cycle. He has excellent ball skills, really exceptional closing speed, and great instincts. He can rock the hit stick, too. He should thrive in Fort Worth.
With his commitment, TCU currently sits at 27 commits, three of which are cornerbacks - he joins Donavann Collins and Tony Wallace on the outside, as well as Trevius Hodges Tomlinson, Deshawn McCuin, and Nook Bradford at safety. The Frogs have 14 commits on the defensive side of the ball in all.
With 21 players signed, sealed, and delivered in this year’s class, TCU is just waiting for six players to put ink to paper Wednesday. Stewart is expected to do so at 11:00am, with RB Darwin Barlow, DE Earl Barquet, LB Dylan Jordan, and Hodges joining him. The only question mark surrounds Tamazuia Brown, a wide receiver from Newton, who is unlikely to sign tomorrow - instead being rumored to go the juco route at this time.
Congrats to Keeyon on his commitment!
