Andre Cojoe*, IOL

The lone Texas commit on this list that TCU is a real threat for in the next few weeks is the underrated and towering 6-foot-7 and 340-pound Mansfield Timberview three-star interior offensive lineman Andre Cojoe.

Offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood and the Longhorns reeled in a commitment from Cojoe in the midst of that massive OL haul on the recruiting trail that this staff got in the 2023 class in late June. And from what we’ve heard regarding Cojoe’s recruitment in the last few months, he’s remained pretty locked in with the Longhorns.

That hasn’t stopped the Horned Frogs from pushing to flip the commitment of Cojoe this fall, though.

A report from Justin Wells of Inside Texas in late October (paid content) indicates that TCU continues to plan to push to flip the commitment of Cojoe through signing day. Cojoe also reportedly visited TCU for its win over Oklahoma earlier in the season.

From the trips we know he’s taken since then, he did make a return trip to Fort Worth to see TCU beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys in a big comeback overtime victory on Oct. 15.

There was some real buzz surrounding TCU and Cojoe throughout October. But some of that has died down in the last couple of weeks to start November.

There is an asterisk next to Cojoe’s name on this list for a reason. I don’t know if this win will continue to spark his interest in TCU. But the way that Texas’ offensive line faltered in this game, and the run that the Horned Frogs made late might be enough to draw his attention once again as TCU looks to round out OL recruiting in its 2023 class ahead of signing day.
