The positive momentum for #CarterBoys2020 continued Thursday evening, as three star offensive tackle Tyler Bailey chose TCU.
Bailey, who plays for Robert Vela High School in Edinburg, TX, is a 6’4”, 280 offensive linemen who chose the Frogs from among ten offers. Chris Thomsen and TCU beat out LSU, Missouri, Texas Tech, and Houston, among others, for his services. According to an interview with Jeremy Clark of 247 Sports, the choice was easy. “TCU by far has the best facilities and coaches out of any school I’ve visited,” Bailey said. “They also have an amazing business college that really caught my attention when I visited last Friday. I also really liked the academic advisors planning and preparation that they do for the athletes. The small enrollment and small class sizes was another thing that really caught my attention.”
Bailey joins Michael Nichols as recruits to announce to the Frogs this week, and is the third offensive lineman to have committed in the class of 2020, joining Altrique Barlow. He is the tenth commit overall for the Frogs’ now 40th ranked class.
An all-district selection a season ago, Bailey is a good athlete at his size with room to add to his already robust frame. He has great hands and is a powerful blocker, finishing at the line of scrimmage and showing the ability to pancake would-be pass-rushers. In his highlight film, he is often seen finishing his blocks well down the field, he gets outside well for wide runs, and is capable of pulling. He seems to have all the tools.
We look forward to seeing this key piece of the trenches on campus a year from now!
