Tuesday was move in day for some of the newest members of the Frog fam, as several members of the class of 2021 made their way to Fort Worth.
UCF transfer Kenny Turnier, one of the newest and most critical members of a small but talented class for TCU Football was the first Frog in the fold, and was quick to hit up TCU Athletics’ game room once he got to campus.
Following quickly behind the defensive tackle was a quadrant of offensive freshmen who are expected to be big stars, when quarterback Trent Battle (Alabama), wide receiver Chase Jackson (Oklahoma), offensive lineman Noah Bolticoff (Kansas), and tight end/offensive lineman/defensive lineman Jaspar Lott (Texas) made TCU officially their home.

Lott played tight end in high school, was expected to try offensive line at TCU, and list TE/DE in his bio. So we will see.
Two other players are expected to be on campus before or at the start of TCU’s academic semester, quarterbacks Sam Jackson (Illinois) and Alexander Honig (Germany). Jackson has one last high school class to finish and is expected to be in town on January 21st, while Honig should be arriving this week as well.
The Horned Frogs signed 13 players during the Early Signing Period and have accepted three transfers (Turnier, Obinna Eze, and Chandler Morris). TCU Football has a handful of remaining scholarships available in the class of 2021 after losing ten players to the transfer portal over the last several months. Their next opportunity to sign players will be February’s Signing Day.
TCU’s academic semester begins on January 19th.
