Another wide receiver has officially joined the Frog fold, with Lubbock speedster TJ Steele signing his NLI Wednesday morning.
Steele, a three star prospect by way of Estacado High School, brings a ton of flash and toughness to a position that became a class of 2021 need for TCU Football after several receivers transferred out over the course of the 2020 season.
He should have no problems filling the void.
At 6’ and 180 pounds, Steele is lightning in the bottle, much in the mold of current star Derius Davis. He racked up big numbers out in Lubbock, but didn’t get much big time notice before committing to North Texas earlier in the year.
Thankfully, the TCU coaching staff took notice, and swooped in late with an offer that caused the big play machine to flip to the Frogs.
Steele has track speed and a history of production at the high school level, having recorded a sub-11.00 100 time and amassed nearly 2,000 yards from scrimmage and 25 touchdowns on the ground and through the air over the last two seasons for Estacado.
A straight line athlete, Steele will need to work on his route running and get in the weight room a bit to be successful at the next level. But the kid has an incredible work ethic and will certainly be willing to put in the time on and off the field to get better.
Get excited about watching him in purple for years to come.
