Saturday afternoon TCU landed its first commitment in the Class of 2016, and the Horned Frogs now have a player who should be quite familiar with the program.
6-foot-5 small forward Josh Parrish announced via Twitter that he’ll play his college basketball for Trent Johnson. Parrish is a local product as well, as he attends Seguin HS in Arlington, Texas and played for the Urban DFW Elite grassroots program on the adidas Gauntlet circuit.
“Thanks to all the schools that have ever recruited me, but I am blessed to say I’ve committed to TCU,” Parrish tweeted.
Next season Parrish will join his older brother Brandon, currently a junior guard, on the TCU roster, and he held offers from Fresno State, SMU and VCU. At the adidas Uprising Summer Championships in July Parrish averaged 10.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game, shooting better than 58 percent from the field.
With Parrish’s older brother and Kenrich Williams (who’s out for the season with a knee injury) both being juniors, adding another slasher for the future is something that will benefit TCU from a depth standpoint. TCU has just one scholarship senior (power forward Devonta Abron) on its current roster, but they have room to add a few more players in the Class of 2016.
