Entering the Big 12 in 2012, the TCU Horned Frogs knew they had to upgrade their recruiting. They have been an excellent program for some time but to compete with teams like the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns, they needed even more talent.
On Thursday, the Horned Frogs landed a huge commitment in the class of 2016, earning a pledge from 4-Star quarterback Brennen Wooten. Wooten took a visit to Fort Worth last week, then hit Austin to camp with the Texas Longhorns. He was back at TCU on Thursday and announced his commitment.
“It was a perfect fit for me and I feel at home there,” he explained via Blake Monroe of 24/7 Sports. “It just felt right. They did a great job of recruiting me. I believe TCU is going to continue to do great things and I want to be a part of that. I think I can help that process along. I feel like there is a lot of opportunity there for me.”
In the end, the TCU coaches played a huge part in his decision.
“They played a huge role in my decision,” said Wooten. “I like Coach Cumbie and Coach (Gary) Patterson a lot. I like what Coach Cumbie and Coach Meacham bring to the table. The football program is on the rise in the Big 12 and I prefer the new fast tempo offense that they’re bringing to TCU.”
The 6’2, 180-pounder is from Marble Falls, Texas and attends Marble Falls High School. He is ranked as the country’s 10th-best pro style quarterback, the 19th-best overall prospect from the state of Texas and the 151st-best overall prospect in the class of 2016 according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Wooten also holds offers from the Boise State Broncos, Clemson Tigers and Houston Cougars, among others.
