The TCU Horned Frogs have picked up another verbal commit for their 2013 recruiting class. The latest is Fort Worth (Texas) All Saints Episcopal tight end Charlie Reid. Reid is the sixth commitment for TCU this recruiting season and second tight end in less than a week to commit.
Reid held 12 offers before making his decision, including Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Iowa State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, North Texas, Oregon State, UCLA and Utah.
Reid became interested in TCU when they out of the blue invited him to their junior day back in February, and he was offered at the end of the camp. A pair of his high school coaches went to TCU, and Reid had been a fan of the Horned Frogs growing up.
When making his choice Reid always kept coming back to TCU as his top school:
"I've gone to other places and seen everything. I've gone to camps and have seen campuses," Reid said. "I've enjoyed everywhere, but with every place I liked, I kept looking back at TCU. I did the pros and cons, and I thought about it. I just realized TCU was where I wanted to be. It has everything I want."
Here is a scouting report or Reid by Burnt Orange Nation:
Reid will see the field in multiple positions as a slot receiver, fullback and a second tight end. Currently Reid is listed at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, so he will need to add on some bulk before he can become a full time tight end.
