TCU signed four-star 2018 WR Tevailance Hunt.

Hunt (6'1/185) was committed to Kansas for a stretch last summer before backing off that pledge in July. He's not the fastest of wideouts, but offers up plenty of quickness and is particularly sharp in terms of his routes. That route-running prowess is key to his creating separation given that he lacks the wheels to simply run past the field. On the ESPN 300, Hunt checks in at No. 277 overall.

TCU signed three-star 2018 JUCO sophomore TE Pro Wells.

Wells (6'5/230) signed on with Marshall as part of their 2016 class, but never played a down with the Thundering Herd. He spent the 2016 season with preparatory school Milford Academy before linking up with JUCO outfit Northwest Mississippi for the 2017 season. On the ESPN JC50, Wells lands at No. 44 overall for the 2018 cycle.
Feb 8 - 3:24 PM

Football Scoop reports that TCU has hired Mountain Pointe (AZ) DC Brian Hernandez to serve as a defensive analyst.

Hernandez has experience coaching on both sides of the ball, having earlier spent two years as offensive coordinator for JUCO outfit Pima Community College. This gig in Fort Worth will be his first with an FBS team, albeit in an off-field capacity.

TCU received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 LB Jacoby Simpson.

Simpson (6'1/220) had been an Arizona State pledge up until the program cut ties with HC Todd Graham at the end of the most recent campaign. He then proceeded to reopen his recruitment. Texas Tech was also vying for his commitment after he backed off the Sun Devils, but it's fellow Big 12 combatant TCU which emerges victorious. The Horned Frogs are up to 21 commitments for their 2018 class and on the Rivals team rankings board, they sit at No. 24. Their class is the second highest-rated in the conference, but still trails No. 6 Oklahoma by a significant margin heading into National Signing Day.

Former TCU WR Kolby Listenbee is suing the school as well as the Big 12 for what he alleges was a "pattern of abuse and harassment."

Listenbee is alleging that HC Gary Patterson, former OC Doug Meacham and others "continuously pressured, humiliated, and harassed" the wideout in an effort to get him to play after he sustained an injury against SMU on Sept. 19 of the 2015 season. That supposed incident occurred during his senior campaign. He was subsequently drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth round, but was cut at the end of the 2016 campaign. This story just broke courtesy of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and as of yet, neither TCU nor the Big 12 have released statements regarding Listenbee's claims. We'll update as information becomes available.
Feb 1 - 5:53 PM

Football Scoop hears that TCU defensive analyst Jeremy Modkins will be promoted to cornerbacks coach.

Modkins has been working with the Horned Frogs for the past four seasons. The upcoming campaign will be his first as a position coach in Fort Worth. He played corner at TCU during the mid-2000's.
Jan 31 - 5:41 PM

TCU signed four-star 2018 JUCO T Anthony McKinney.

McKinney (6'7/330) has excellent size and strength. He opted for the Frogs -- who are losing four OL starters -- over an offer from Big 12 champion Oklahoma. "McKinney is a big body that can get his hands on and control defenders," reads his ESPN scouting report. "[Has the] tools to compete as a quick contributor, particularly as a RT." McKinney is ESPN's No. 1 JUCO tackle, and its No. 12 overall JUCO transfer.

TCU QB Kenny Hill completed just 2-of-5 passes for 18 yards in a 23-0 loss to the National squad on Saturday in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

This was ugly, in a game that featured lots of ugly. Hill also lost a fumble, and he missed badly on a couple of his incompletions. Despite showing flashes of brilliance at both Texas A&M and TCU, it's very unlikely that Hill is an NFL prospect, unless someone just falls in love with his athleticism.
Jan 20 - 7:34 PM

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill accepted an invitation to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Hill (6'1/212) has always tantalized teams with his talent, but a silly pass/decision was never far behind. He finished 2017 with a solid 23-to-8 touchdown-to-interception ratio, and also ran for 326 yards and five scores. Because of his inconsistent play it's unlikely he'll be an NFL prospect, but he'll get his chance to show he can play at the highest level, starting with the Collegiate Bowl.
Jan 12 - 9:10 PM

TCU redshirt senior T Joseph Noteboom accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Noteboom is one of several players who have accepted invites to play in both the Senior Bowl and the East-West Shrine Game. He was part of an offensive line that kept Kenny Hill upright all season, and right now projects as a Day 3 selection by analysts.
Jan 4 - 8:40 PM

TCU redshirt junior DE Ben Banogu will return to school for the 2018 season.

Banogu (6'4/241) transferred over to TCU from UL-Monroe prior to the start of the 2016 campaign and subsequently sat out the year due to NCAA transfer regulations. Playing his first season with the Horned Frogs during the 2017 campaign, Banogu made an immediate impact with 55 tackles (16.5 for loss), 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. His return is a clear boon for HC Gary Patterson. Had he declared for the draft, he would have been in play for a first-round selection.
Jan 4 - 4:05 PM

TCU freshman WR Jalen Reagor caught five passes for 174 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 39-37 win over Stanford in the Alamo Bowl.

Reagor (6'0/189) showcased sizzling speed in this one, no more so than on his 93-yard touchdown grab on a lovely deep ball from Kenny Hill in the fourth quarter. After the true freshman caught the ball, he turned it up and easily pulled away from the Cardinal defense. The former three-star recruit ends his first year of college ball the owner of a 33-581-8 receiving line. It was an enticing campaign that portends great things for 2018 and beyond. We wouldn't be surprised if Reagor threatened 1,000 yards next year.

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed 27-of-40 passes for 314 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while adding 60 yards and a touchdown on the ground in Thursday's 39-37 win over Stanford in the Alamo Bowl.

Hill had himself a miserable first half, throwing a pair of interceptions and having at least two more potential picks dropped. The Horned Frogs hit the locker room at the half trailing 21-10. Whatever HC Gary Patterson said at the break worked, because they looked like a completely different team through to the end of the game. Hill's highlight-reel moment came when he uncorked a perfect deep ball down the right sideline to Jalean Reagor, who caught the ball in stride before racing into the end zone for the 93-yard score in the opening seconds of the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Hill will now call it a collegiate career. It was an adventurous one which he closed out with arguably his best season as a passer, throwing for 3,152 yards (67.2% completions) with a 23/8 TD/INT ratio this year. Don't expect him to get much of a look from the NFL, but it was fun while it lasted.

TCU sophomore RB Darius Anderson (leg) will be a game-time decision for the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 28.

Anderson (5'11/205) sustained a right leg injury against Oklahoma on Nov. 11, a leg injury which sidelined him through to the end of the regular-season campaign. Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson has been pleased with his progression in rehab during the lead-up to the team's bowl showdown with Stanford, saying, "Every day he gets better." Prior to suffering the leg injury, Anderson had rushed for 768 yards (6.0 YPC) and eight touchdowns. If he can't play versus the Cardinal, Kyle Hicks and Sewo Olonilua would see the bulk of carries come Dec. 28.
Mon, Dec 25, 2017 02:13:00 PM

TCU redshirt senior T Joseph Noteboom accepted an invite to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Noteboom has started the last three years for the Horned Frogs, and he's been named to the Academic All-Big 12 during that time as well. He's currently projected to be a late round draft pick or undrafted free agent, but his size and smarts could see him become a Day 3 pick if he performs well at the event.
