Of TCU edge rusher Josh Carraway, an NFC director of personnel said: "You can't coach his speed."

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Carraway to Shaquille Riddick. "Several boxes go unchecked for Carraway, but his outstanding athleticism and potential as an edge rusher will provide draft value," Zierlein wrote. "His instincts are a long way off and he lacks the functional strength and toughness at the point of attack that most teams require on the edge, but a big combine could heat his draft stock up. He will require patience and much more technique work, but he does possess NFL traits as a developmental prospect." Carraway earned his second consecutive first-team All-Big 12 nod by posted 11 TFL and a team-leading eight sacks last season.

Scout.com's Greg Powers notes that "quicker linebackers in the college game could potentially give [TCU freshman G Wes Harris] some issue."

While Powers believes that Harris could have problems against college-level linebackers, he also writes that the 6-foot-4, 295-pounder "can run block and pass block effectively [and] should not be a liability in any one particular area." Scout ranked him as the No. 4 guard in the state of Texas. Rivals viewed him as the No. 204 overall prospect in the 2017 cycle.

TCU signed three-star 2017 DE Corey Bethley.

Bethley's final decision to side with TCU did not come until late in the 2017 cycle, as he took official visits to both Oklahoma and Texas A&M in January before settling on the Horned Frogs. ESPN ranks the 6-foot-1, 265-pounder at No. 271 on their 2017 master list, with the caveat that they believe that Bethley might already be close to his ceiling as compared with other similar prospects.

TCU QB Kenny Hill led the country with 38 dropped passes in 2016, according to Pro Football Focus.

Hill was criticized for an inconsistent first season in Fort Worth, but he wasn't done many favors by his inexperienced receiving corps. "We threw too many interceptions," TCU HC Gary Patterson said last week. "We all know that. And we were last in the NCAA in drops. So if we want to get better, we’ve got to do a better job of catching it and we’ve got to do a better job of throwing it to us. There’s no secret of the things we’ve got to get better at." Hill finished with 3,208 passing yards on a 61.1 completion percentage but led the Big 12 in interceptions with 13 and was 6-6 as a starter. Utah's Troy Williams, Idaho's Matt Linehan, Memphis' Riley Ferguson and Louisville's Lamar Jackson were the four other quarterbacks who had 33 or more dropped passes last year.

TCU signed three-star 2017 CB Noah Daniels.

Daniels was also eyeing Oklahoma, as he took a visit to Norman in early December, but he committed to the Horned Frogs a week later and has not looked back since. Applause for the 6-foot, 180-pounder in his development over the last year-plus. He had received little interest from FBS program heading into the early summer, but his recruitment took off after he turned in several impressive performances on the satellite camp circuit. And now he lands with on-again/off-again Big 12 contender TCU. Very nicely done. Scout.com's Gabe Brooks believes that in addition to his natural position of corner, Daniels also has potential as a safety.

TCU signed three-star 2017 G Quazzel White.

Looks like the Tacoma, Washington, native will be traveling a fair distance for his college career. The 6-foot-2, 285-pounder is a gritty, grinding offensive lineman who houses an ever-running motor.

The Arizona Republic's Jeff Metcalfe reports that Arizona State will not hire TCU offensive analyst Sonny Dykes.

According to Metcalfe, Arizona State had interest in Cal's former head coach as a replacement for OC Chip Lindsey (who just left for Auburn). However, pressing family matters for Dykes appear to have scuttled a would-be marriage between the two sides. As matters currently stand, Dykes is expected to remain on staff with TCU for the coming season.

TCU redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks was arrested on a misdemeanor public intoxication charge early Saturday morning.

Per the police report, authorities were called to a restaurant past 2:00 a.m. on Saturday after they received a call about a fight. Hicks, as well as former TCU players Bryson Henderson and George Baltimore, were subsequently arrested. No discipline has been levied against Hicks at this juncture, though that could still be in the works. The 5-foot-10, 210-pounder led the Horned Frogs with 1,082 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns this past season.

TCU OC Sonny Cumbie will call the offensive plays in 2017.

Cumbie has been the co-offensive coordinator with Doug Meacham for the past three years, but we're assuming he gets the title to himself now that Meacham left for Kansas. The Horned Frogs hired former Cal HC Sonny Dykes over the weekend, but that move apparently doesn't conflict with Cumbie's ascension to chief play-caller.

TCU hired former California HC Sonny Dykes for a role yet to be determined.

This is a nice get for Gary Patterson, who essentially replaces co-offensive coordinator Doug Meachum (who left for Kansas) on the staff with Dykes. Dykes, an Air Raid guru, went 19-30 at Cal and 22-15 in the three years before that as the coach of Louisiana Tech.

California fired HC Sonny Dykes.

The 47-year-old Dykes went 19-30 (10-26 Pac-12) in four seasons. The Bears regressed to 5-7 this season following the departure of No. 1 overall pick QB Jared Goff and his top six receivers. Speculation has the Bears targeting newly unemployed Chip Kelly, who wouldn't have to send the moving trucks far to get to Berkeley. Kelly went 33-3 in conference play at Oregon. Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports, who reported the firing, has also tossed out 31-year-old Cal OC Jake Spavital and Wisconsin DC Justin Wilcox as potential Dykes replacements.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 18 of 27 for 146 yards and two touchdowns as well as 72 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground in the school's 31-23 loss to Georgia.

Hill flashed the same promise early in this contest that he did with Texas A&M, but the Horned Frogs fizzled out. Georgia was able to use a spy in the second half and force TCU in unfavorable situations with tackles for loss. Hill should be TCU's starting quarterback next year.

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that he expects redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill (foot) to start against Georgia in the Liberty Bowl on Friday.

Hill continues to rehab a foot injury initially sustained versus Kansas State in the regular-season finale. "I don't think he's 100%," Patterson said, "but he's close." Hill has been incredibly up-and-down throughout the current campaign. Through 12 games, he has thrown for 3,062 yards (60.8% completions) with a 15/13 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 537 yards and nine additional scores.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill (foot) has returned to practice.

Hill injured his foot in a loss to Kansas State in TCU's final game of the 2016 campaign. Back in action now, with HC Gary Patterson saying, "He missed about the first half of [bowl] practices, and he’s been back a little bit. We’ll find out. He’s been running around." Foster Sawyer would draw the Liberty Bowl start against Georgia if Hill is not healthy enough to give that one a go on December 30.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill was 5-of-11 passing for 52 yards in Saturday's loss to Kansas State.

He also rushed for 50 yards on seven carries. Hill started this game on the sidelines, but Gary Patterson changed his tune after watching starter Foster Sawyer go 12-of-25 for 86 yards and an interception. And so Hill was inserted despite an ankle injury to predictable results. We'd guess Hill will close out the year as starter in the bowl game.
