2012 TCU Football Recruiting: Class Signees List At 23, Third Best In Big 12

When the TCU Horned Frogs joined the Big 12, they knew that competing against the bluebloods of the conference would be the constant grind. Texas and Oklahoma consistently have some of the top recruiting classes in the nation every single year and 2012 would be no different.

However, Gary Patterson and his coaching staff was able to secure the No. 3 overall recruiting class ahead of other formidable programs like Oklahoma State and Texas Tech and even over the newcomer in West Virginia. Three four-star recruits will do that for a program.

Here are the 23 commitments who have signed a letter of intent to the Horned Frogs in 2012:
