TCU athletics held its annual "Meet the Frogs" event on Saturday. Football players and coach Gary Patterson interacted with fans, as well as the volleyball and soccer teams.

TCU coach Gary Patterson can’t talk about recruits by name, but it’s no secret this weekend’s matchup against Ohio State is important from the recruiting standpoint.

ESPN’s “College GameDay” is broadcasting live from campus, and the hope is it further boosts the profile of every program.

Several football targets are expected to attend the game at AT&T Stadium, and Patterson knows the No. 1 way to get them more interested in his program.

“You want to play well,” Patterson said. “That’s always a key for people. I’ve had kids reach out, here this week after last week, maybe we were off their radar, now we’re back on their radar and we haven’t even played [Ohio State] yet.

TCU coach Gary Patterson addressed the big-time Ohio State matchup after Friday's win over SMU. The Frogs coach doesn't think Urban Meyer's suspension is "an advantage."

“That’s one of the reasons you play Ohio State.”

It’s not just a big weekend for football, either. The men’s basketball team is hosting a couple recruits as well.

Jalen Hill, a small forward out of Ed W. Clark High School in Las Vegas, and Damion Baugh, a combo guard out of Tennessee Preparatory, are in town this weekend and will be attending Saturday night’s football game.

Hill is a four-star prospect while Baugh is a three-star, according to 247Sports.

TCU basketball coach Jamie Dixon still has high expectations for his team as the regular season comes to a close.
