TCU picked up its 10th commitment for the 2017 recruiting class when cornerback Noah Daniels went with the Horned Frogs over Oklahoma.
Daniels, 6-foot and 191 pounds, of League City Clear Creek is rated three stars by 247Sports.com. He rescinded a commitment to Baylor last month and had taken an official visit to Oklahoma last week when the Sooners won the Big 12 title.
“Big recruiting win for TCU,” said Billy Wessels, publisher of PurpleMenace.com on the Rivals scouting network. “He picked the Frogs over Oklahoma and Arkansas. He’s a big body that can cover the tougher receivers you’ll see in the Big 12 and isn’t missing any speed.”
Daniels made his commitment announcement at TheRecruitDigest.com, writing, “Since I was a child, I have always wanted to stay in Texas and play for TCU. I feel as though I am a great fit in their defense and TCU is simply where I need to be for the next three or four years.”

The commitment means another member to a TCU class expected to reach 14 to 18 players by National Signing Day in February.
“With his frame he’s got a lot of upside and will likely be a guy the staff can put on an island down the road,” said Josh Harvey, publisher of HornedFrogInsider.com on the Scout network. “Don’t be surprised to see him make an appearance in the final Scout.com national cornerback rankings.”
Daniels is rated the 96th overall best prospect in Texas by 247Sports.com.
“He gives the Frogs a great player at a much-needed position for depth, and with the Big 12 being such a pass-happy, up-tempo offensive league, Frog fans should be seeing plenty of Daniels over the course of the next four years,” said Jeremy Clark, publisher of HornedFrogBlitz.com on the 247Sports network.
