TCU has reached a new threshold in its recruiting.
The Horned Frogs gained their first five-star commitment ever when Louisiana quarterback Justin Rogers was upgraded in the 247Sports composite rankings, according to a tweet by Matt Jennings of DieHards.com.
Rogers, a dual-threat quarterback from Bossier City Parkway High School, committed to the Frogs in May as a four-star player, opting for the Big 12 team after a pitched recruiting battle against LSU.

The rating signals confidence by the recruiting service that Rogers will recover completely from a leg injury suffered in August during a game. It caused him to miss the rest of the season, but TCU remained firm with its scholarship offer. Rogers attended the Frogs' game against Texas four weeks ago.
Nationally, 247 ranks Rogers as the 26th-best player, the second-best dual quarterback and the second-best player in Louisiana.
TCU has signed 40 four-star recruits in the past nine years, but never a five-star. The Frogs' latest four-star signees include another quarterback, freshman Shawn Robinson of DeSoto, who has played in six games and started one. He projects to be the TCU starter next season when Rogers is on campus.
