NFL.com named TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin as the No. 1 2015 Heisman contender
"He made huge strides this season under the tutelage of new co-coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie," wrote Mike Huguenin. "If he makes the same kind of strides next season, monster numbers await. And he put up some eye-catching numbers as it was this season, throwing for 3,714 yards and 30 TDs and running for 642 yards and eight more scores. Hmmm -- what about 4,000 yards and 35 or so TDs through the air next season, along with 750 rushing yards and at least 10 TDs? He finished fourth in the Heisman voting this season and probably will be the highest finisher to return to school." Boykin is followed in the rankings, in order, by Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett, Mississippi St. QB Dak Prescott, USC QB Cody Kessler and Michigan State QB Connor Cook. Dec 15 - 7:59 PM

Date:

TCU and Ole Miss will play in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 31.

Both teams use a number of non-seniors who will soon be prospects, but are not yet discussed on the national radar. Few quarterbacks have developed more than Trevone Boykin since last season, as he now wins inside and outside of structure. TCU linebacker Paul Dawson might be a top three prospect at the position, but does not receive enough attention.
Dec 8 - 10:38 AM

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin completed 30 of 41 attempts for 460 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the school's 55-3 win over Iowa State.

Boykin added another 44 yards on the ground and caught a touchdown on a 55 yard grab and go. Boykin's lone interception was on a lofted pass in the endzone, but he continued to display the development he has shown all season. The excellent athlete is winning inside of structure and obviously has the athleticism and arm to win outside of it.
Dec 6 - 3:40 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin completed 20 of 34 attempts for 233 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the school's 48-10 win over Texas.

He added another 50 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Boykin is one of the most improved passers in the country this season, showing an ability to win inside and outside of structure as well as having a vertical arm. Now, those traits do not show up on a consistent basis, so until they do Boykin is merely a developmental type prospect.

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin completed 26-of-36 passes for 330 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 34-30 win over Kansas.

The Horned Frogs struggled with a frisky Jayhawk team, but managed to escape with a win. Boykin was coming off of one of the more athletic displays by a quarterback with his 219-yard passing/123-yard rushing effort against Kansas State last week, but he was relatively quiet on Saturday. He hit a 27-yard touchdown pass three minutes into the game, but did not put it in the endzone again. Kansas held him to just two yards rushing. Boykin is as athletic as any quarterback in the country, but he's still in the process of refining his pocket passing.
Nov 15 - 8:20 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin threw for 219 yards and rushed for 123 on 17 carries in Saturday's romp over Kansas State.

Boykin put on one of the most impressive displays of athleticism of any player this season, highlighted by a somersaulting run into the end zone in the third quarter.''I can do, like, back flips all day. Well, I can't do a forward flip, but I did today," Boykin said. "I can't necessarily do that on an everyday basis." We're with you Trevone, we're with you. We can't do that on an everyday basis either. Boykin still needs to improve his pocket passing and poise, but it's hard to deny his pure athleticism.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt compared TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin to Russell Wilson, but "faster and taller."

Well, that is high praise. We think Boykin is one of the most improved players in the country, but he is not nearly the passer Wilson was at Wisconsin, specifically in structure. That is not to say Boykin does not win in the pocket and in rhythm, because he absolutely does. The TCU quarterback struggled against WVU and did not put nearly as much velocity on his passes thanks to the weather.
Nov 8 - 10:17 AM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote that "although [TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin's] accuracy can be streaky," the quarterback acted as the catalyst for the offense.

This season, Boykin is completing 57% of his passes. Even with the accuracy issues, Brugler wrote that Boykin, "us[ed] his arm and legs to move the ball and beat defenders." He's rushed 94 times 424 yards so far. Brugler went on to say that the junior "does a great job spreading the wealth among his receivers, especially [Josh Dotson]." As a prospect, Boykin has "freakish athleticism and sensational arm talent" according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks. Boykin is still developing as a quarterback and those accuracy numbers should continue to improve as he learns the position.

TCU redshirt junior Trevone Boykin passed for 168 yards and a touchdown in TCU's 31-30 win over West Virginia on Saturday.

The Trevone Boykin bandwagon had been traveling at approximately 100-mph after last week's 82-point showing by the Horned Frogs. That bandwagon slammed into a brick wall against West Virginia on Saturday. Boykin completed just 12-of-30 passes for 168 yards. He threw a 47-yard touchdown to Deante Grey in the first quarter, but did more or less nothing after that. He was also picked once. On the positive side, Boykin did manage to rush nine times for 49 yards and a score. It'll be interesting to see how he bounces back form this one. Boykin had passed for fewer than 280-yards just once prior to the Saturday struggle. He's a stud athlete who is still learning the position and should only get better. Games like Saturday's are to be expected from time to time as he continues to grow and mature.
Nov 1 - 7:31 PM

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks TCU redshirt junior Trevone Boykin's "freakish athleticism and sensational arm talent has helped the Horned Frogs become the top scoring offense in the nation."

"Boykin's freakish athleticism and sensational arm talent has helped the Horned Frogs become the top scoring offense in the nation. TCU is averaging 55 points per game in Big 12 play, with Boykin's ability to connect with Josh Doctson, Kolby Listenbee and Deante Gray on an assortment of short, intermediate and deep throws setting the tone for the unit," Brooks writes. The TCU prospect has already thrown for 2,306 yards and 21 touchdowns with just three interceptions, while running for 374 yards. Brooks notes that Boykin "is one of the most explosive athletes in college football, as evidenced by his ability to play quarterback, running back and wide receiver during his collegiate career."

According to NFL.com's Charles Davis, TCU redshirt junior Trevone Boykin is a legitimate prospect given the way that NFL teams are using dual-threat quarterbacks.

"He looks like he has more than enough arm strength, and I think he's a legit prospect with the way dual-threat QBs are hitting the league," wrote Davis of Boykin. This season, the TCU star has exploded, leading to some big upsets and gaudy stats. He's thrown for 2,306 yards and 21 touchdowns against just three interceptions, while running for 374 yards. On top of that, writes Davis, "[Boykin] still has another year of eligibility remaining and should continue to grow in the position, as he's still very young in terms of his career as a QB. He's dynamic and impresses me more and more each time I see him."

TCU HC Gary Patterson pointed to redshirt junior Trevone Boykin letting the offense run itself as the QB's biggest improvement.

We'd argue no quarterback outside of Everett Golson has improved more this season. Boykin actually looks like a legitimate NFL prospect, making quick decisions when necessary, improvising on other plays when pressured, and using a ridiculous vertical arm to test defenses at every section of the field. TCU faces one of their top tests of the season in WVU this Saturday.
Oct 29 - 9:54 AM

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin's "profile is certainly growing within the scouting community," reports NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

"TCU has become one of the most explosive offenses in college football with the ultra-athletic Boykin at quarterback," Brooks wrote."The 6-2, 205-pound junior has compiled a 21:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio in seven games and tormented defenses with his dynamic skills as a dual-threat playmaker." Boykin has passed for 2,306 yards and posted a 20/3 TD/INT rate while rushing for at least 25 yards in every game. Brooks ranks him as the No. 5 Heisman candidate right now, adding that Boykin "could walk away as the surprise winner at the end of the season."

ESPN's Kevin Weidl notes that he was impressed with TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin's pocket presence, and his willingness "to sit in and beat blitz" with his arm.

"Watching TCU offense tonight. Been impressed with Boykin's pocket presence. Willing to sit in and beat blitz with arm," Weidl tweeted. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Boykin completed 22-of-39 attempts for 433 yards, seven touchdowns and no interception versus the Red Raiders on Saturday.
Oct 28 - 3:03 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin "has taken his game to the next level," writes ESPN's Todd McShay.

"The results on offense have been clear, with 185 points in the past three games, including 82 in the Horned Frogs' win over Texas Tech on Saturday," the analyst wrote. Boykin completed 22-of-39 attempts for 433 yards, seven touchdowns and no interception versus the Red Raiders. An NFC personnel director told NFL.com last week that Boykin, a former WR, has the style of play that the "league is looking at right now." The Heisman hopeful has passed for 2,306 yards and posted a 20/3 TD/INT rate while rushing for at least 25 yards in every game.
