TCU Football was faced with replacing a pair of offensive tackles heading into spring ball, with the graduations of Lucas Niang and Anthony McKinney. Saturday night, they got some reinforcements when former Colorado State OT TJ Storment made his announcement for the Frogs.
A former 2* commit out of North Carolina, Storment began his career at Old Dominion, where he spent two years (one as a redshirt) before transferring to Fullerton College, a community college in California. From there, he matriculated to Colorado State, where he started all 12 games for the Rams.
Having graduated from CSU, Storment elected to look for a new home for his final year of eligibility. Initially committing to Purdue just two days ago, Storment reversed course of the weekend and decided to make Fort Worth his next home, choosing the Horned Frogs from among 20+ interested schools. He will have just the 2020 season to play out his eligibility.
At 6’7” and 310 pounds, Storment is a big, experienced offensive lineman that could slide into the starting lineup next to Quazzel White, Austin Myers, or Andrew Coker. At the very least, he provides depth at a huge position of need for a unit that has struggled on and off the last few seasons and is going through a coaching change to boot. Getting him to become a Frog is a massive victory for Gary Patterson, Jarrett Anderson, and the TCU Football staff.
He may have taken a winding path, but it appears Storment has found his future home. Welcome to the Frog fam, TJ!
