TCU swaps RBs with Oregon
By Jeff Caplan
With the majority of its starters returning, TCU added depth Wednesday, signing 18 players, including two rated as 4-star recruits and nine rated as 3-star by ESPN's Scouts, Inc.
Defensive tackle David Johnson (6-2, 250, Argle, Texas) and Sam Carter, a 6-1, 205-pound athlete out of Sugar Land, Texas headline the class, along with running back Ethan Grant (5-8, 167) out of Coconut Creek, Fla. Grant decommitted from Oregon in December and had considered several Big 10 schools. Grant rushed for 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns, averaging 9.4 yards per carry his senior season.
Oregon got one back on TCU though when running back Josh Huff, a three-star recruit out of Aldine Nimitiz (Texas) backed out of his TCU commitment and signed with the Ducks.
