TCU lands two more commits for 2020 class, including top-rated JUCO dual-threat QB | The Star-Telegram

Neither are big names, but they could be big-time players in the future for TCU.

“I like this pick up a lot for the Frogs,” said Jeremy Clark, recruiting expert and publisher of 247Sports’ Horned Frog Blitz. “He fits their system perfectly as a dual-threat. We’ve got him ranked as the No. 1 JUCO dual-threat in the nation for a reason — he throws the ball well, especially vertically, and he makes a lot of good plays with his feet. He can improvise on the go to make plays.

“For the Frogs to get this type of player this late is a big steal for them. I think Brown has a high ceiling.”

Miller, meanwhile, is rated as the No. 122 athlete in the country by 247Sports. He played quarterback at Mount Enterprise, but posted impressive rushing numbers with 2,508 yards and 34 TDs.

He is the second running back of TCU’s class, joining Dominic Richardson.

“This is another hidden gem the Frogs,” Clark said. “Miller comes from a tiny East Texas town, but for those that have followed recruiting over the years, no matter the size of the town, East Texas produces players.

He’s the #1 juco QB in the country.

“It’s always been my dream to play in such a prestige environment, the coaches are not only great football coaches but great men,” he said. “I want to be a part of that and help the team in any way I can.”

“It’s a dream come true.”

Brown told HFB prior to his visit that there would be a good chance he would make a commitment. His decision only solidified basically from the moment he stepped on campus.

“I loved everything about the visit, from the coaches hospitality, and the way the treated my family,” he said. “The family oriented culture they have is special.”

During the visit Brown had the opportunity to speak and get to know head coach Gary Patterson and offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie more. Brown spoke highly of both coaches.

“They were outstanding, they showed a lot of love and support and talked to me about life not just football,” Brown said.

A great athlete from a small town? GP has had lots of success with those in the past.

Miller is the second running back commitment for the Frogs, joining three-star Dominic Richardson. Although Miller is rated as an athlete, he had most of his success running the football for Mount Enterprise. Playing quarterback, Miller rushed for 2,508 yards and scored 34 touchdowns while earning district 10-2A-II Most Valuable Player. Miller helped his team improve from 5-6 in 2018 to 10-2 in 2019.

In addition to TCU, Miller also held offers from Wyoming, Southern Miss and UTSA. Miller visited UTSA one week ago and that’s where many felt the athletic player would land before TCU offered last Sunday.

Miller will join an athletic group at running back for the Frogs, however there isn’t much experience. On the roster are redshirt freshmen Daimarqua Foster and Darwin Barlow and junior Emari Demercado. Only Demercado has more than three games of college experience.
