Thursday was a busy day for TCU head coach Gary Patterson.

After spending the morning going through ESPN’s “car wash” of programs in Bristol, Conn., Patterson rushed home to make the start of TCU’s women’s football clinic by 6:30 p.m.

However, before he could make his way to the Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility for the event, Patterson was sidetracked by a unscheduled meeting.

Waiting in his office was Marble Falls junior quarterback Brennen Wooten, who made a surprise trip to Fort Worth to pledge his commitment to TCU’s 2016 recruiting class.

“They really did a great job recruiting me,” Wooten said. “I’ve really developed a great relationship with Coach [Sonny] Cumbie and Coach Patterson. I think Coach Cumbie is a great coach and they have a great offense that they’re installing. I think they have a bright future and I loved the atmosphere at TCU so I wanted to be a part of it.”

Wooten is ranked 109 overall on ESPN’s Junior 300 and third nationally at his position.

Wooten shed some light into what he has been told about the Horned Frogs’ new up-tempo, pass-happy offense that has yet to be seen.

“I think the pass game and the run game are going to be different than what they’ve seen and I think it’s going to be great,” Wooten said. “It’s a new life to the TCU offense. I think it’s going to be awesome.”

Wooten chose TCU over offers from Clemson, Kentucky, Boise State, Houston, Rice, Akron and Tulsa and said he is firmly committed to TCU.

“I’m done with recruiting. I’m going to be a TCU Horned Frog,” Wooten said.
