TCU basketball picks up big-time commitment from 4-star point guard

TCU men’s basketball coach Jamie Dixon picked up a big-time commitment on Tuesday.

Four-star point guard Francisco Farabello has committed to the Frogs as part of the 2019 class. Farabello is the third hard commit for TCU, joining 4-star guard P.J. Fuller and 4-star forward Diante Smith. TCU now has the No. 8-ranked class in the country, according to 247Sports.

Farabello, a 6-foot-2, 165-pounder, announced his commitment on Twitter. He is rated as a 4-star guard by 247Sports.

Farabello had interest from Cincinnati and Davidson. He visited Cincinnati before making his official recruiting visit to TCU last weekend.

Farabello, who is from Argentina, plays for the NBA Global Academy. He impressed coaches last summer playing for Argentina in the FIBA u18 Americas Championship, averaging 8.3 points, 5.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds a game.
