After a brief quiet period this past spring in which they received no commitments, the TCU coaching staff got back to adding to the recruiting class of 2012 in June when they received the pledge from Rashodrick Linwood, a 5'9" 180 lb running back from East Texas.
"Shock" Linwood was a bit of a do-everything player for quite a while at 2A Linden-Kildare, having amassed over 1,000 total yards and 16 TDs as a sophomore in 2009. As a junior, he eclipsed the 1,500-total yard plateau and scored 20 TDs. That was enough to earn him a place in Dave Campbell's Texas Football's Texas Top 300, a three-star evaluation from Rivals and a scholarship offer from TCU and Baylor amongst others.
As a senior last fall, Linwood rushed for 2,103 yards and 25 TDs while lining up mostly at quarterback for the Tigers- also throwing for 729 yards and 5 TDs. His efforts were rewarded with 2nd Team 2A All-State honors from the Associated Press.
