The Horned Frogs have been on a roll Wednesday as far as recruiting, adding three four star prospects on the first day of the Early Signing Period.
Their most recent? Wide receiver Quincy Brown out of Destrehan, Louisiana.
Brown is a great get for the Horned Frogs, a player not many had on TCU’s radar leading up to Wednesday’s signing. A 2020 graduate, Brown initially planned to sign with Mississippi State out of high school, but backed off of his pledge late and was expected to go the juco route this fall. He never surfaced at Copiah-Lincoln in Natchez, MS, though, a program that was able to play just three games due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Holding 14 offers as a high school senior, including the Bulldogs, Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, and Georgia, Brown is described as “Tall, long, lean outside receiver with great height and a large catch radius. On the narrow side, so bulking potential may be limited but height and length are there. Go-up-and-get-it wideout with serious red-zone ball-winning ability. Very good leaper with verified 37.9-inch vertical as a sophomore. Goes after fades and jump-balls like a rebounder. High-points well. Shows encouraging ability to adjust in the air to the ball. Makes catches in traffic. Comes back to the ball when needed. Generally does a good job keeping ball away from his body. Speed-builder with adequate to above average long speed relative to size. Can improve lateral mobility and short-area explosion. Has not been asked to get open in short-to-intermediate range much to date. Must add bulk/strength. Legitimate high-major wideout prospect with impact potential in college and long-term NFL Draft ceiling,” by recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks.
He doesn’t have super-elite speed (4.67 40) at the position, but plays far faster than that in pads and brings a lot to the table as a more polished, physical receiver that can make the tough catches and provides a big target (6’3.5”) in the red zone and across the field.
He’s the kind of player that the Frogs have been looking for in the last several classes but haven’t seen pan out, when it comes to the mix of size and strength (think what we all wanted John Stephens, Jr to become).
Brown is the 14th commitment in TCU’s class of 2021, and the fourth four star — all making their commitment and signing today — of the group. He becomes the second-highest graded player of a group that has been steadily rising in the rankings all morning. You can check out his film below — welcome to the Frog Fam, Quincy!
