TCU coach Jamie Dixon continues to make headlines since arriving in Fort Worth in March, landing his fifth recruit in Keller High School standout R.J. Nembhard.

Nembhard, a four-star guard according to Rivals, announced his commitment to the Horned Frogs via Twitter on Thursday.

The 6-foot-3 senior is the fifth recruit to sign or commit to TCU under Dixon, who spent his first 13 years as a head coach with Pittsburgh.

Dixon has landed two players for the 2016 season, two for the class of 2017 and one for 2018.

Nembhard was named District 5-6A MVP and was selected to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches All-Region team for 6A Region I after averaging 21 points, five rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. He was also named first team to the Star-Telegram Super Team this past season.

“I’d like to thank my friends and supporters within the Keller community and everywhere else for believing in me at all times, whether they were good or bad,” Nembhard said on Twitter. “Thank you to all my coaches and teammates I’ve had the chance to play with up to date.”

Nembhard chose TCU over offers from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas State and Baylor.
