Early Friday somebody with knowledge of the recruitment of Brandon Parrish described his situation as "both feet are in the boat, but not quite off the dock" when it came to TCU.
Minutes later, the 6-foot-5 wing from Arlington (Texas) Seguin went ahead and set sail with the Horned Frogs.
"It feels good, I'm pretty relieved to have all of this recruitment over with," Parrish told Rivals.com. "It really felt right because I really like the coaching staff at TCU."
Parrish had pondered taking at least one more visit, but the three-star who ranks No. 140 in the class decided that things had gone to well in Ft. Worth to wait any longer.
"The visit went rally well," said Parrish. "I didn't want to waste anybody elses time because I knew that TCU was where I wanted to be so I made the decision."
A wing with size, Parrish's biggest asset is that he is a knockdown shooter. He shoots with range, hits pull-ups and doesn't take many bad shots either.
"I want to get my ball handling to be a much better aspect of my game," said Parrish. "I think I bring a good size to the two position and the ability to knock down shots."
At the end of the day, though, when it came time to decide whether or not to get off the dock with TCU, head coach Trent Johnson was the difference maker.
"I saw a lot of his accolades and see what he's done similar to me like Marcus Thornton and Landry Fields," said Parrish. "I feel like he oould develop me into a guard and he likes to win. It has to be about winning."
Parrish is the first member of TCU's 2013 recruiting class. He is also a summer teammate of major Horned Frogs target, four-star big man Karviar Shepherd.
