The class of 2020 is starting to fill up, as the Frogs’ scored another commitment over the weekend in the form of Henderson wide receiver Caleb Medford.

Medford is a big target that can play both inside and outside receiver, standing 6’3” and weighing in at 185 pounds. A three star prospect, he chose TCU from among 19 offers, including Arkansas, Baylor, Texas Tech, and Boston College. He is rated as the #92 WR in the country and is a top 100 prospect in the state.
New TCU wide receiver coach Malcolm Kelly played a big role in bringing Medford to Fort Worth, as the rising senior grew up in church with the Frogs’ newest coach. As he told Jeremy Clark of 247 Sports, that relationship was a difference-maker. “I love Coach Kelly; his character is impeccable and he one of my favorites coaches I talk to during the process,” he said. “We grew up in church together and he just great to be around so we reconnected somehow; I hadn’t talked to him in years and it is crazy because who knew he would be recruiting me. That is all God and I praise him for that. I love him as a coach and a mentor throughout the whole process!”
While the newest TCU coach played a big part, so did the consistency of the rest of the staff. Medford says that the program made him feel at home, and that Coach P’s personality and honesty throughout the process had a big impact as well. “I feel the home environment and it is a very historical place. I love being there, I love what Coach P got going and how he keeps it real with you and the players made me feel at home. Our personalities are the same it makes me feel comfortable,” he said. “Overall, I’m enthusiastic about TCU and all it offers two from the house; I can’t get enough of that.”
With Jalen Reagor likely leaving for the NFL at the end of the coming season, and several other highly-rated targets having struggled with injuries, Medford has a chance to come in and play right away. He is the second wide receiver to commit in the class of 2020, joining Dajon Harrison of Hutton, and fourth player overall. The Frogs have taken just five wide receivers in the last two signing classes.
