TCU head men's basketball coach Jim Christian announced on Tuesday (June 17) that Detroit standout Kavon Rose (Detroit, Mich./Finney H.S.) has joined the Horned Frogs' program and will join the roster for the upcoming 2008-09 campaign.

The 6-2 Detroit standout concluded his final campaign at Finney High School by averaging 22.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 6.0 steals and 5.0 assists per game en route to securing Detroit Free Press First Team All-City honors.

The newly-inked Horned Frog was also cited as a Detroit Public School League All-Star member as well as an all-state selection.
