The Horned Frogs have stabilized the future of their offensive line in the last two days, as three star guard Noah Bolticoff followed Jacoby Jackson in committing to TCU Football this weekend.

I’m officially ending the recruiting process. I want to thank all the coaches and programs.
I have made my decision.
I am beyond blessed to Officially Announcing my Committment to Texas Christian University #CarterBoys2021 #GoFrogs @blaizefoltz @coachlaw71 pic.twitter.com/kAyy94U1yz
Bolticoff, a native of Rose Hill, Kansas, committed to Kansas State last December, but de-committed in May after being offered by the Horned Frogs earlier in the month. A bit of an unknown, with just four offers to his name, the 6’5, 265 prospect is coached by former Frog Blaize Foltz, who likely got his name to Fort Worth. He was recruited by newly minted (again) offensive line coach Jarrett Anderson.
A three sport athlete, Bolticoff compares favorably to Lucas Niang, who starred at TCU before moving on to the Kansas City Chiefs. With a Power Five starters tool kit, the #4 prospect in the Sunflower State has a chance to be groomed into something special in Fort Worth. 247 recruiting expert Gabe Brooks has this to say about the newest commit for the Frogs:
Big-framed offensive line prospect with the playing experience and build that project to tackle. Possesses frame space to get to desired mass in college strength and conditioning program. Sets with good, wide base in pass pro. Shows encouraging hand placement as a pass blocker. Gets to the second level in the run game with relative ease. Quick off the ball. Can improve initial punch power at the point of attack. More of a catcher than a puncher at this point. Finishes blocks when opportunity arises, but will need to build overall strength, particularly in lower body, to continue development as a drive-blocker in the run game. Power 5-caliber offensive line prospect with tackle build, but potential to provide position versatility.
The trip to TCU will be a homecoming for Noah, who grew up in Flower Mound. Calling it his “dream school”, Bolticoff had been hoping for an offer from the Frogs ever since he began thinking about playing college football, according to Horned Frog Blitz’s Jeremy Clark. He announced his decision Saturday morning after informing coaches Friday night, saying that he has ended his recruiting process and is officially committed. He is the sixth commit in the class of 2021 and the second on the offensive line, joining Jackson; five of the six are on the offensive side of the ball for what is expected to be a small signing class.
TCU hopes to add a few more players to the offensive line in this cycle, as they will lose several more players at the conclusion of the 2020 campaign. The foundation is strong for a group that could certainly contribute early once they get to campus.
