Signing Day is Here

As fans, we look ahead to National Signing Day quite a bit. It's fun to see the next wave of stars who will hopefull bring more conference championships, more BCS bowl trips and possibly even that elusive national title. As big a day as it is for us, though, imagine how big a day today is for the young men signing on to officially become Horned Frogs. For them and their families (like Blake Roberts and his family last year in the picture above), it's the culmination of a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

A lot of you out there have been following recruiting from the beginning, and some of you for the past few weeks. But there are plenty of those out there, I'm sure, that are checking into recruiting for the first time today. And that's OK- we're here to cater to all kinds of Frog fans.

Barring any last minute suprise additions or subtractions, these are the 26 players we expect to be introduced at TCU's signing day press conference this afternoon:

-Quincy Aldridge, DB from Whitehouse, TX
-James Bailey, DB from Everman, TX
-Trevone Boykin, QB from Mesquite, TX (West Mesquite HS)
-LaDarius Brown, WR/DB from Waxahachie, TX
-David Bush, WR from Tyler, TX (John Tyler HS)
-Jamie Byrd, DB from Dade City, FL (Pasco HS)
-Brandon Carter, WR/DB from Euless, TX (Trinity HS)
-Brady Foltz, OL from Rose Hill, KS
-Travoskey Garrett, DB from Lufkin, TX
-Deryck Gildon, LB from Arlington, TX (Martin HS)
-Chazten Gonzales, QB from Del City, OK
-Kolby Griffin, DB from Houston, TX (St. Pius X HS)
-Chris Hackett, DB from Tyler, TX (John Tyler HS)
-Chad Hedlund, K from Argyle, TX
-Chuck Hunter, DT from West Monroe, LA
-Jon Lewis, DT from Klein, TX (Klein Oak HS)
-Dominic Merka, QB/TE from Crosby, TX
-Jamelle Naff, OL from Del City, OK
-Davion Pierson, DT from Oklahoma City, OK (Millwood HS)
-David Porter, WR from DeSoto, TX
-Laderice Sanders, LB from Arlington, TX (Arlington High)
-Austin Terry, LB/DL from Lago Vista, TX
-Bobby Thompson, OL from Midland, TX (Midland Christian HS)
-Jason Verrett, DB from Fairfield, CA (Santa Rosa JC)

As someone who really did not keep up with the recruiting at TCU, I really enjoyed all of the breakdowns in the articles. Great stuff and thanks for putting so much time into it. Already really pumped for football season. Go Frogs!!

P.S. Excited about baseball season as well. It is going to be a great year.

Nice pic...why can't all players sign this way -- the theatrics of the "real school" hat under the "just kidding" school hat is getting old (or maybe I am getting old). I blame it on ESPN because they will put it on SportCenter.

Spit Purple said...

Add to the list:
Jamie Byrd
Chuck Hunter
Travoskey Garrett

Brady Foltz
Laderice Sanders
Bobby Thompson

Still waiting on:

Lyle Lanley said...

Dirty rumors about LaDarius Brown possibly pulling a last-minute switcheroo on us. Really hope they're not true.

SuperSweet HornedFrog said...

i heard chad hedlund might switch....please dont be true

Lyle Lanley said...

Hedlund is not switching. Since he is planning on grey-shirting, rivals is going to count him as part of the 2012 class.

Spit Purple said...

All in except for Pierson.

Riff Ram said...

Hedlund is no longer on the list of TCU commitments on Rivals. Can't find anything about him switching though.

Spit Purple said...

Hedlund is apparently going to greyshirt.

Spit Purple said...

It sounds like Pierson will still sign. GP keeps alluding to a defensive tackle that we've signed but he can't mention yet because the LOI hasn't been finalized due to weather.

Slay Purple said...

Pierson is signed according to rivals

Tanner said...

so we got everyone, including brown? just wanted to make sure.

Texas Secede said...

Yep. We got Brown locked in.
