The 2019 TCU recruiting class has seven commitments so far with less than nine months remaining until the early signing period.
The Horned Frogs are already adding big commitments to the class this spring as they look to follow up on one of the best classes in school history. TCU is going after some big-time targets, especially within the state of Texas, many of whom will begin making commitments in the next few months.
Here is where things stand for TCU with the Class of 2019.
Where the 2019 TCU recruiting class ranks
Latest news with the 2019 TCU recruiting class
The Frogs should be hearing soon on one of the top quarterbacks in the 2019 recruiting class, 4-star Max Duggan.
TCU is considered the favorite for the dual-threat passer from Council Bluffs (Iowa) Lewis Central. He visited Fort Worth in March and apparently really enjoyed his time on campus. He would be the third 4-star quarterback in as many years to pick the Frogs, following Shawn Robinson in 2017 and Justin Rogers in 2018.
Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Sonny Cumbie hasn’t had any trouble attracting top quarterbacks to the program. The question, if Duggan commits, will be: How will Cumbie manage to juggle all three quarterbacks over the next few seasons? Then again, that’s probably a good problem to have.

TCU recruiting: Top remaining targets
4-star QB Max Duggan, Lewis Central (Council Bluffs, Iowa) – Uncommitted
TCU is currently the favorite to land the country’s No. 7-ranked dual-threat quarterback, Max Duggan. Duggan is the No. 299 overall player in the country in the 247Sports composite rankings. If the Frogs get his commitment, he would be the third straight blue-chip quarterback to choose the Frogs in the last three classes.
4-star S Jalen Catalon, Mansfield Legacy (Mansfield, Texas) – Uncommitted
Jalen Catalon is one of the best defensive players in the Metroplex and in the state of Texas in the Class of 2019. TCU would love to keep the No. 8 overall safety in the country close to home. However, Texas is currently the favorite to secure his signature.
4-star WR Dylan Wright, West Mesquite (Mesquite, Texas) – Uncommitted
With Garrett Wilson trending toward Ohio State, one of TCU’s next biggest targets at receiver is Dylan Wright. The local prospect has spoken highly of the Frogs, but TCU will have to beat out Texas to land him. Listed at 6-foot-3 and 192 pounds, he is the No. 184 overall player in the country.
4-star LB David Gbenda, Cinco Ranch (Katy, Texas) – Uncommitted
Another in-state defensive star is expected to have the Frogs in heavy consideration when he makes his decision. David Gbenda would give TCU a star at linebacker, a position where the Frogs have major needs in this class with the upcoming departures of Ty Summers, Arico Evans and Jawuan Johnson after 2018. Once again, the Longhorns appear to be TCU’s biggest competitor for his commitment.
