A late signee in the 2019 cycle, almost TCU linebacker Dylan Jordan is headed to a junior college, according to his twitter:

Jordan, a three star recruit out of Kansas, chose TCU over eight other offers. It came down to the final week before signing day, when the Frogs managed to win out over Utah and Nebraska for the talented 6’3”, 215 pound linebacker - who was a top 30 player at his position and the fourth highest-rated recruit out of the Sunflower State.

I will let you all read the tea leaves when it comes to why he is not making it to Fort Worth, but will instead spend the next two seasons at Fort Scott Community College in Fort Scott, KS. The Greyhounds are coming off of a 2-8 season in 2018, so it is safe to assume Jordan will have a fair opportunity to contribute as a freshman.

Jordan made it clear that he is open to matriculating to the Horned Frogs and playing for Gary Patterson down the line, and I am sure TCU will continue to recruit him over the next two years. Jordan is fast, physical, and talented - exactly the kind of player that has thrived under GP.

One of just three linebackers to sign in the class of 2019, the Frogs will likely be aggressive in their pursuit of midline defenders in what is expected to be a smallish 2020 signing class. TCU has just one scholarship senior at the position on the roster, but is stocked with youth - with four redshirt or true freshmen in the fold.

TCU Football’s season begins on August 31st when they open at home against Arkansas Pine Bluff. Kickoff is set for 7:00pm.
