I fully am aware that after an 11-22 season nearly nobody cares about TCU men's basketball. But everyone loves recruiting, so ...
* The Internet machine is abuzz that TCU will add 6-8, 250-pound forward Adrick McKinney (right), a transfer from Angelina Junior College. A TCU source confirmed McKinney has committed. He played his high school ball at Trimble Tech. He averaged 15.1 points and 8.4 rebounds per game last season at Angelina. He immediately adds muscle to a team that desperately needs it.
Will this work? TCU last season whiffed badly on a pair of JC transfers, namely Sammy Yeager and Andre Clark. Both were kicked off the team during the year.
* The other player of note TCU is pursuing, and according to multiple sources has a very good chance of signing, is 6-10 forward Ryan Rhoomes out of New York. He recently took a recruiting visit to TCU that apparently went well. Of course, those visits always go "just great".
Rhoomes, who began playing ball when he was an eighth grader, was offered scholarships as a senior in high school from West Virginia, Cincinnati and Virginia Tech. He elected to attend prep school. Depending on what you believe, TCU's switch to the Big East has Rhoomes interested.
TCU has five scholarships for next season.
