TCU Head Football Gary Patterson and the Horned Frogs football program on Wednesday, Feb. 5 announced the signing of five student-athletes, supplementing the 16 from December.

24/7Sports ranks TCU’s signing class third for a fifth straight year in the Big 12 and No. 28 in the nation.

The Horned Frogs have seven four-star signees: safety Bud Clark (Alexandria, La.), offensive lineman Garrett Hayes (Athens), cornerback Keontae Jenkins (South Norfolk, Va.), defensive tackle Patrick Jenkins (New Orleans, La.), wide receiver Quentin Johnston (Temple), defensive lineman Jaquaze Sorrells (Largo, Fla.) and wide receiver Savion Williams (Marshall).

Per 247Sports, Johnston and Hayes are the second- and third-highest rated signees in the 20 recruiting classes of the Patterson era. Johnston (No. 13) and Williams (No. 28) mark the second time in the last four years for TCU to sign two of the nation’s top 30 wide receivers.

The addition of Johnston (No. 58) and Hayes (No. 97) marks the first time TCU has signed two Top 100 prospects in the same ESPN 300 class.

Nine of the 21 signees are in-state products while a total of six states are represented. Three players are from Louisiana, Oklahoma and North Carolina, two from Virginia and one from Florida.

Thirteen signees are on offense, including five linemen, four wide receivers, two quarterbacks and two running backs. TCU’s seven defensive signees include three linemen, two linebackers, a cornerback and safety. Another signee, Tyler Guyton (Manor), is a lineman.
