TCU recruiting has broken the seal on the 2020 class, as cornerback Jahade Barron is the first commit to #CarterBoys20.
After a great talk with my family I’m excited to announce that I’m committed to Texas Christian University thank you to my coaches, teachers, and support team for helping me make this dream a reality. #Carterboys20 #Gofrogs #Rep512 pic.twitter.com/z4ehT2QGIo— Jahdae Barron (@daeloading) March 7, 2019
Barron hails from Pflugerville, Texas, just outside of Austin, and he commits just days after being on campus. Barron was in Fort Worth this past weekend for a big Junior Day, where TCU hosted a ton of recruits from all over the state, and some from out of state.
Standing at 5’11”, 175 Barron fits the mold of a TCU cornerback. He’s rangy with good speed, and has the ability to stick to a receiver in man coverage. He reacts quickly when the ball is thrown, and is capable of putting a big hit on a receiver as well. It also helps to get Barron in the fold because cornerback is a need for TCU in 2020, as they’ll lose Jeff Gladney, Julius Lewis, and Keenan Reed to graduation after the 2019 season.
It’s not always easy to become the first commit to a school, but hopefully Barron has opened the floodgates for TCU’s latest class.
