TCU's odds for 2016 received a major boost on Thursday evening with 4-star quarterback Brennen Wooten committing to the Horned Frogs. The Marble Falls High School standout tweeted out his decision:

According to 247Sports' composite ranking, Wooten is the 10th-best pro-style QB in the class of 2016 and 150th-ranked recruit overall. He joins fellow 4-star recruit Jonathan Marshall in giving TCU the No. 12 class in the country in 247Sports' early team rankings.

ESPN.com's Max Olson called Wooten a "great get" for the Horned Frogs:

Tyler Donohue of Bleacher Report tweeted out the signal-caller's impressive stats from his sophomore season:

Wooten was one of many talented quarterbacks to take part in the Rivals Camp Series. The event posted a Vine of the Marble Falls, Texas, star in action:

TCU had recently been one of the best non-AQ schools before moving to the Big 12. Although the school is coming off of its first losing season since 2004, it's not hard to see why Wooten would be tempted by what the Horned Frogs have to offer.

According to Danny Davis of the Austin American-Statesman, he believes the program is going in the right direction:

Although Wooten isn't the kind of generational recruit who will single-handedly take TCU to the next level, he has the potential to capably lead the offense down the line and help make the Horned Frogs one of the top teams in the Big 12.

This is the kind of player Gary Patterson needs if he wants to get the program back into a bowl game once again.
