This kid has a chance to be an absolute gem for the Frogs.

“I thought it was really big that a Power 5 school was able to offer me at QB,” Eli said. “I was confused as to why other schools were offering me as an athlete, so that really stood out that TCU was going to be the one for me.”

Eli said it was almost instant that he felt at home with TCU. The new facilities, including upgrades to Amon G. Carter Stadium, were impressive. Nevertheless, the Horned Frogs never questioned where they wanted Eli to play, and they made it clear from the start.

TCU would love to win this recruiting battle.

A native of Germany, the 6-foot 7, 290-pounder is ranked as the No. 1 JUCO offensive tackle in the nation and No. 10 overall player. Zierer has nearly 20 offers on the table including the aforementioned three programs and Oregon, Utah, Arizona State and Washington State among others.

New coaches, new QBs... the Big 12 has lots of questions.

Baylor, Oklahoma State and TCU make up the mid tier in the preseason poll. Obviously, they all have questions, from Baylor’s defense to quarterback battles with the Pokes and Frogs. But they have playmakers, too. Baylor’s Denzel Mims, Oklahoma State’s Tylan Wallace and TCU’s Jalen Reagor are first-team All-Big-12 caliber types, and they’ll all be welcome additions to media days.
