Updated: Highest-rated TCU 2020 commit still on board with Frogs

Newton defensive end James Sylvester is still committed to the Horned Frogs.

Sylvester, the highest-rated commitment for Gary Patterson’s progam in 2020, had sent out a tweet on Sunday afternoon announcing his decommitment, and then quickly deleted the tweet.

Sources tell the Star-Telegram he is still committed, as he has been since May.

Sylvester is a four-star prospect, according to 247Sports, and drew interest from powerhouses such as Alabama, LSU, Florida State and Texas A&M before initially committing to TCU.

The NCAA’s early signing period for the 2020 class runs from Dec. 18-20.
