Ja'Juan Story Transfers To TCU

The TCU Horned Frogs received a fairly high-profile addition on Tuesday, as former Florida Gators wide receiver Ja'Juan Story elected to transfer to TCU.

Story, a former four-star recruit who redshirted in 2012, chose TCU over the Central Florida Knights. He will sit out the 2012 season and have three years of eligibility remaining.

At 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, Story has great size for a receiver and is the type of recruit who could make a big impact for the Horned Frogs as they jump from the Mountain West to the Big 12.

The presence of quarterback Casey Pachall, a 6-foot-5, 225-pound junior who emerged as a star in his first year replacing former Horned Frogs star Andy Dalton, may have made Story's decision easier, as he'll have the opportunity to work with an NFL-bound QB for at least one season in Fort Worth.

The move to the Big 12 has clearly lifted TCU's national profile, as Story is the latest former four- or five-star recruit to join head coach Gary Patterson's program in the last few months, following RB Aaron Green (Nebraska) and CB David Jenkins (LSU).
