The TCU Horned Frogs men’s basketball team began assembling talent for its 2023-24 team as the NCAA’s early-signing period opened on Wednesday.
The Horned Frogs, led by coach Jamie Dixon, is coming off a 2021-22 in which it reached the NCAA Tournament and won a first-round game for the first time since 1987, when Dixon was the Horned Frogs’ point guard.
The Horned Frogs nearly beat No. 1 seed Arizona in the second round before losing in overtime. For that reason, the Horned Frogs have become a trendy Top 25 pick entering the season.
Before the signing period, the Horned Frogs had two commitments, including a Top 100 national player in forward Jace Posey out of Strake Jesuit in Houston, Texas. Posey is TCU’s fifth-highest ranked recruit in the history of 247Sports.com recruiting rankings.
The Horned Frogs announced the signings of Posey and of forward Isaiah Manning on Wednesday.

The early-signing window closes on Nov. 16.
