Meet the Future Frogs: Bonus Edition

A day before the TCU recruiting class of 2011 signs their letters of intent, we take a look at two other athletes that will be joining the program: BYU transfer Tayo Fabluje and JUCO preferred walk-on transfer Chris Yeakey:

Fabuluje, a 6'6" 260lb behemoth from Arlington Oak Ridge, has realized the error of deciding to attend a college where drinking Dr Pepper isn't allowed and left BYU to become a Horned Frog. He was listed as the #36 defensive end in the nation last year before picking the Cougars over scholarship offers from all over the country, but it's not certain what position he'll play in Fort Worth. He could stay at defensive end, move inside to tackle or move over to the offensive line. Either way, he'll be a beast on the TCU scout team for a while: he's already enrolled in school and will participate in spring practice, but will have to sit out the 2011 season due to transfer rules. He'll be a sophomore in 2012, but here's a preview of what you can look forward to from Tayo:

There's not a whole lot of info out there about Yeakey, who was a teammate of Jason Verrett at Santa Rosa JC in California- but if you can find any, please share it with us. We do know that he's a 6'3", 215lb safety originally from St. Helena, California. He was offered a preferred walk-on spot at TCU, and will be looking to earn a scholarship starting this fall. It's kind of suprising that, given the lack of information about the kid out there, that he'd have a highlight tape on youtube. But here you go:
