The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Drew Davison reports that the Senior Bowl would have been interested in TCU QB Trevone Boykin if he had agreed to exclusively play wide receiver.
Per Davison, while Boykin's open to the idea of switching to wideout at the NFL level, he's focused on quarterbacking right now. Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage addressed the former Horned Frog dynamo's absence from the roster. "I’m not sure, I don’t want to speak for him," Savage said, "but I don’t think he’s ready to make that full-fledged switch to wide receiver." He cited that the 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete played QB in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and went on to indicate that the Senior Bowl chose to look at those committed to the position of wideout. In the aforementioned NFLPA performance, Boykin had a rough day, completing just 1-of-3 passes for six yards and an interception while rushing for 15 yards on a pair of carries. Jan 26 - 6:57 PM

TCU QB Trevone Boykin completed 1-of-3 passes for six yards and an interception while rushing for 15 yards on two carries in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Ouch. Just ouch. This was supposed to be Boykin's springboard back onto the national scene after he sat out the Alamo Bowl following an arrest, but it just didn't happen. He looked skittery in the pocket at times and just didn't flash the sort of upside that we're used to seeing from the 6-foot-2, 205-pound. Boykin's draftability--especially at quarterback--was already in question. Saturday's game didn't help much. While he's hoping to stick it out at QB, a position change is not out of the question.
Jan 24 - 12:50 PM

TCU QB Trevone Boykin spoke out about his early January arrest, saying that he felt "hurt and devastated" that he couldn't play in the Alamo Bowl.

"I was so hurt and devastated for the simple fact that I couldn't be out there with my team," Boykin said. "Watching the game hurt even more, but I was so proud of them the way they fought back [overcoming a 31-0 haltime deficit to Oregon]." The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder indicated that most of the questions he's received from scouts and NFL teams in this week's lead-up to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl have been of the football variety, rather than the off-field species. While he's willing to go through drills at other positions, he'll be participating in Saturday's bowl as a quarterback. He's also signed up for the combine at the same position. As for the ramifications of his legal troubles, Boykin's slated to make a court appearance on February 17 (per the Fort-Worth Star Telegram).

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that he hopes that an NFL team "at least give[s] [QB Trevone Boykin] a chance at quarterback."

While he's hoping Boykin will get a shot at quarterback, Patterson also vouched for Boykin's ability as a return man, wideout and running back. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound jack-of-all-trades has been one of the most dynamic players in college over the last two seasons, but his reputation took a huge hit after his involvement in a bar fight in early January. He'll look to put on a good face over the next three months, starting with the NFLPA Bowl. CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler wrote that scouts will be looking for "improved mechanics, timing and accuracy during NFLPA Bowl practices."

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that the suspension of senior QB Trevone Boykin following Thursday morning's run-in with authorities "wasn't even a conversation between him and I."

Said Patterson, "It's unfortunate for him because Trevone has meant so much to TCU. We love him. But he understands. It wasn't even a conversation between him and I." Patterson added the fatherly note that "everybody makes decisions." Boykin's been charged with assaulting a public servant, resisting arrest and public intoxication following his role in a bar fight early Thursday morning. He'll be depriving the universe of what should have been a juicy potential shootout against Oregon graduate QB Vernon Adams and the high-flying Ducks. In a very related note, Patterson wouldn't commit to either senior Bram Kohlhausen or redshirt freshman Foster Sawyer as his starting quarterback for the Alamo Bowl. "For me, it doesn't make a difference which guy starts," he said.
Jan 1 - 6:38 PM

In a released statement, TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin apologized for the Thursday morning bar fight that ended in his arrest.

Boykin faces a third-degree felony charge after allegedly striking an officer during a bar fight on late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior released a statement, which read in part: "Words can't describe how sorry I am. I truly let down my family, teammates and the TCU and Fort Worth communities who have supported me so much. I have no excuses for my very poor decision, and I'm embarrassed about it." He's been suspended for Saturday's Alamo Bowl showdown with Oregon. Co-offensive coordinator Doug Meacham has indicated that the Horned Frogs are currently leaning toward starting senior Bram Kohlhausen in Boykin's place.

Starting TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin has officially been suspended for Saturday's bowl game against Oregon.

Boykin was arrested on a third degree felony charge for striking an officer following an altercation outside of a bar. ESPN's Mark Schlabach reported that Boykin was in his hotel room at midnight when coaches completed curfew checks, but went back out afterward. Junior receiver Preston Miller was also suspended. Boykin and Josh Doctson were set to play their final game together, but now it could be difficult for the Horned Frogs to take advantage of a poor Oregon secondary and passive defense. Boykin has committed to play in the NFLPA all star game.

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin was arrested early Thursday morning following a fight outside of a bar, where he is accused of hitting a patrol officer.

Bar patrons apparently recognized Boykin, and the quarterback allegedly swung at them after an argument. He missed and hit a bar employee instead. Then the group was escorted out, when the argument continued. Boykin apparently missed again and this time hit an officer. TCU will play Oregon on Saturday, and Boykin was the projected starter at quarterback.

The No. 15 Oregon Ducks (9-3) will play the No. 11 TCU Horned Frogs (10-2) in the Valero Alamo Bowl on Jan. 2.

This game is a pick 'em or close at all books. This is a close matchup, especially since TCU WR Josh Doctson was ruled out with a left wrist injury. That loss hurts against this horrific Oregon secondary. Trevone Boykin ( 2,928 yards with a 28/5 TD/INT rate while rushing for 524 yards and six TDs) will target WRs Kolby Listenbee and KaVontae Turpin more often. While Oregon isn't good defensively outside of a very strong line, the offense is superb, averaging 48.6 points and beating Stanford, USC and Arizona State over the last five games. Since QB Vernon Adams returned from injury on Oct. 17, Oregon has ripped off six straight wins with Adams throwing for 1,865 yards, a 21/4 TD/INT rate and an FBS-high 195.2 rating in that span. RB Royce Freeman (1,706 rushing yards, 16 total touchdowns) is the real offensive star. Oregon is No. 6 in the FBS with an average of 548.2 yards per game.

TCU sports information director Mark Cohen said, "We anticipate a sea of purple [at the Alamo Bowl]."

The Horned Frogs sold out their allotment of 12,000 tickets within two days, while Oregon's yet to even sell all of their 6,000. A Ducks official indicated that he expects those tickets to sell before the game kicks off. TCU fans own a definitive travel advantage here, as the game's being played in San Antonio. That's a long way from Eugene, Oregon, but just a four-hour drive from Fort Worth. Cohen's certainly aware, saying "The TCU Horned Frog nation was very excited to see us in San Antonio."

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin will play in the NFLPA all star game.

Boykin joins Liberty's Josh Woodrum, Utah's Travis Wilson, Northwestern State's Stephen Rivers and Bowling Green's Matt Johnson. Some are still wondering if Boykin plays quarterback in the NFL, as he lined up as a receiver early on at TCU. We think Boykin has shown enough inside and outside of structure to warrant a look at quarterback, and that journey begins at this all star game.

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin's ankle injury is almost completely healed.

Nothing huge here. Boykin was already indicating in late November that he expects to be 100% by the time of the Horned Frogs' bowl game. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior's still on track for that. While his ankle should be fine barring an unexpected setback, the status of senior WR Josh Doctson (wrist) won't be determined until Doctson's cast is removed later this week. In what could be one of the more offensively explosive bowl games of the season, TCU will tango with Oregon in the Valero Alamo Bowl on January 2.

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin said he "feel[s] like [he] should be 100% by [TCU's bowl game]."

Boykin's been plagued by an ankle injury for the last few weeks. It sidelined him for the entirety of TCU's 30-29 loss to Oklahoma on November 21 and while he did play against Baylor on Friday, he was noticeably slowed. Granted, the game was played in a torrential downpour and included 22 combined punts, but still, noticeably slowed. The dynamic 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior's confident the ankle will heal up over the next month.

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin (ankle) completed 18-of-33 passes for 148 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 28-21 2OT win over Baylor.

The 49 total points scored might seem on the low side for these two teams, but even that final score is underselling just how ugly Friday's game turned out to be. TCU punted 12 times, Baylor punted 10 times and after a five-yard touchdown run by Baylor back Devin Chafin near the end of the first quarter, neither team scored an offensive touchdown until the first overtime. Oh, and the game was delayed by lightning for almost an hour and was played in a constant downpour. For his part, Boykin looked noticeably tentative in his running (14 carries, 16 yards, touchdown) at times thanks to the tender ankle that kept him out of last weekend's loss to Oklahoma. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior finishes the 2015 regular season campaign with 3,575 passing yards, a 31/10 TD/INT ratio, 612 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns.
