Recruiting is in full swing as the TCU Horned Frogs gear up for the upcoming football season.

TCU has already seen quite a bit of action surrounding their recruits, with one player decommitting and another local star joining the Frogs.

Chris Jimerson Jr., a North Crowley football star, announced on June 19 that he decommitted from the TCU team.

In a statement made via X, Jimerson said he decided to decommit to pursue other opportunities to play as a quarterback at the collegiate level.

“I would like to express my gratitude to Coach Meacham and the entire TCU coaching staff for believing in me,” stated Jimerson on X.

“I also want to thank the entire TCU community for their support over the past year. After careful consideration, prayer, and discussions with my family, I have made the difficult decision to decommit from TCU as an athlete to pursue my opportunities as a Quarterback at the collegiate level,” he continued. “While this decision was tough, I believe it is the right one for me.”

Jimerson had a successful junior season at North Crowley, where he led his team to the 6A-Division I state semifinals, as reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He threw for 3,031 yards and completed 40 touchdowns, with only three interceptions. Jimerson also rushed the ball for 1,089 yards and had 12 rushing touchdowns last season, according to MaxPreps.

At 5 ’10, Jimerson is classified as a three-star prospect, ranked the No. 83 athlete and the No.166 prospect for the state, per 247Sports composite rankings. Jimerson has several offers from other universities, such as North Texas, Texas State, UTEP, and Arkansas State.

Despite the loss of this quarterback recruit, TCU was able to land Julius Simms, a three-star safety from Whitehouse, Texas, on June 17. At 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Simms is highly sought after and held offers from other prominent schools, such as Kansas State, Michigan, and Houston, as reported by Frogs O’ War.

In the Class of 2025, Simms ranks No. 92 for safeties and No. 168 as a prospect in the state of Texas. Last season, he had 56 tackles, three tackles for loss, one forced fumble, and one interception, as reported by 247Sports.

Like many of the TCU recruits, Simms is also a multi-sport athlete. He ran a 23.90 200 and participated in the 4×100 and the 4×200 relay races for Whitehouse High School, FWST reported.

Despite Jimerson’s decommitment, TCU’s recruiting class of 16 ranks No. 1 in the Big 12 conference and No. 13 nationally, per FWST.
