The TCU Horned Frogs made it four football commitments in three days with a late-night nod Saturday from Van High School offensive lineman Kris Dike. to the class of 2018.
Scout.com said Dike chose the Frogs over offers from Houston, Colorado, SMU and Oklahoma State.
He’s another three-star-rated player, as the other three have been this week, but again one seen with a lot of upside.
Dike gives TCU 11 commitments in its #Carterboys18 class who will be freshmen in 2018.
Never miss a local story.
At 6-foot-5 and 285 pounds, Dike can pack some more pounds on his frame. He is ranked 84th best at offensive tackle nationally and 128th overall in Texas by 247Sports Composite.
“Dike consistently finishes blocks in the running game and moves well in open space when asked to pull,” Scout.com recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks. “Dike owns an above average frame and will get bigger in college. When engaged, he can sometimes get loose in his body control, but his strength is evident in his ability to overwhelm most matchups.”
Last season, Van, about 75 miles east of Dallas, lost to Kennedale 34-28 in the UIL Class 4A Division I quarterfinals.
Of the flurry of four verbal (nonbinding) commitments, two are from Texas, northeast or east, and two from Louisiana. The four are receiver John Stephens Jr. from Logansport, La.; cornerback Eddie Smith from Slidell, La.; receiver Chase Van Wagoner from Lucas Lovejoy; and Dike.
