TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin was compared by NFL Media to Russell Wilson.
"As is typical for a college quarterback with his athleticism, Boykin doesn't hesitate to tuck the ball and do his damage on the ground when given the chance," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread. "Wilson, of course, scrambles more to throw. But if Boykin reaches the pros, he'll take on more of a sense of self-preservation in time." The 6-foot-2 Boykin is a bit bigger than the 5-foot-11 Wilson, though TCU has perhaps tacked an inch onto Boykin's measurements. The TCU prospect threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014. May 23 - 1:30 AM

NFL Media ranks TCU redshirt senior Trevone Boykin as their No.1 returning offensive player for 2015.

"He's the preseason favorite for the Heisman Trophy, and the reason TCU is poised to win the Big 12,"'s Chase Goodbread wrote. The TCU prospect was quite productive for the Frogs, throwing for 3,901 yards with 707 yards on the ground, while accounting for 41 touchdowns in 2014. There is no reason Boykin shouldn't be able to produce another impressive season.
May 21 - 2:16 PM's Mike Huguenin has TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin ranked as his No.1 Heisman Trophy candidate for 2015.

"Boykin was fourth in the Heisman voting last year and is the highest finisher to return to school. He also plays for a team that should be in the top five all season, which always helps when it comes to getting Heisman votes," Huguenin wrote. The TCU prospect threw for for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns, while running for 642 yards and eight more scores on the ground in 2014. If he can put together another dominant season in 2015, there's potential for a Heisman Trophy and a shot to go in the first-round of the 2016 draft.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin underwent minor wrist surgery on his non-throwing hand last month.

Boykin played with the injury last season. Perhaps no quarterback improved more last season than Boykin. he displayed the ability to win inside and outside of structure and has an arm to his throws at every level of the field. If his accuracy and movement become more refined, watch out.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin needs to show "more consistency and accuracy" to be a first round prospect, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Boykin is going to be a hotly debated prospect. I need to see more consistency and accuracy before he makes my 1st round," Brugler tweeted. In his first full year as TCU's starting quarterback, he finished fourth in the Heisman voting after putting up 3,714 yards passing and 30 TD passes. If the TCU prospect can refine his game, he has a shot to be a first-round prospect, as well as, a potential Heisman Trophy winner.

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin will undergo surgery in April to repair a fractured wrist.

Before Horned Frogs fans keel over, we should be clear on two things: Surgery will repair the injury to Boykin's left (non-throwing) wrist that he sustained in October, and the fracture is being described as small. He didn't miss a snap because of the injury, though he will miss a portion of spring practices while rehabbing, a process that is expected to take five weeks. Boykin, fortunately, is expected be 100 percent by voluntary summer workouts.

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin completed 22-of-31 passes for 187 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions in Wednesday's 42-3 blowout Peach Bowl victory over Ole Miss.

He added 10 carries for 65 yards. Perhaps nothing illustrated the breadth of TCU's dominance in this game quite as much as the fact that the school won by 39 points despite Boykin's struggles. Twenty-one of TCU's points came via five Ole Miss turnovers, making Boykin's job fairly easy. He finished off perhaps the nation's most impressive breakout season with 3,901 passing yards and a 33/10 TD/INT, along with 709 rushing yards and eight ground touchdowns. recently named Boykin as the No. 1 2015 Heisman contender. Are you going to argue?
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 08:17:00 PM 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sun, Nov 9, 2014 04:08:00 PM'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.

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's Bucky Brooks. Boykin is still developing as a quarterback and those accuracy numbers should continue to improve as he learns the position.
