Meet the Future Frogs: Quincy Aldridge

The Frogs ended the year on a high note both on the field and off- finishing the regular season 12-0 and receiving a bid to the Rose Bowl, and landing LaDarius Brown as their last commitment of 2010. They obviously continued in both regards as the calendars turned to 2011- winning said Rose Bowl and landing the first commitment of 2011 (and the 21st of this class) in Whitehouse safety Quincy Aldridge.

Aldridge, who's listed at 6'2" 195lbs, was most likely headed to whatever big state school he wanted after being named 3rd Team All-State by Dave Campbell's Texas Football as a sophomore in 2008. But he missed much of his junior season- generally the most important year for high school players to impress recruiters- with an MCL sprain. That left him with some ground to make up as a senior this fall, but he didn't disappoint- picking off four passes and being named 1st Team All-District and 1st Team All-East Texas by the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

He is certainly not the first Frog to come from Whitehouse under Patterson's watch- the winning touchdown in the Rose Bowl that came just eight days before Aldridge's commitment was scored by Whitehouse alum Luke Shivers. He may not be the last, either- his younger brother Jonathan as also 1st Team All-East Texas at wide receiver as a junior this year. Before you start looking ahead to the Aldridges sitting alongside the Schobels and Brocks as a TCU football dynasty, check out the one brother who is already committed to the purple & white:
