TCU received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 LB Ben Wilson.

Wilson (6'2/215) opted for the Horned Frogs over Cal, Washington State, Louisville, Arizona State, Vanderbilt and Utah. While high school numbers should be taken with a grain of salt, Wilson posted some eye-popping stats as a junior at Sumner Senior High (Washington), registering 201 tackles (16.0 for loss) and 8.5 sacks. Former NFLer Reggie Jones, who now works at Rise Football Academy, said of Wilson, "Fearless physicality and he's a true student of the game. His game is universal." Jones added the juicy note that he believes that the TCU commit has the potential to play in the NFL down the road.

Former UL-Monroe redshirt junior DE Ban Banogu is now eligible for TCU.

Banogu started all 13 games for the Warhawks in 2015, recording five sacks and 14.5 TFL. He sat out last season due to NCAA transfer rules. Banogu will be relied upon heavily in 2017 with TCU having lost pass rushers Aaron Curry and Josh Carraway, who combined for 13.5 sacks in 2016.

TCU received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 WR Chase Van Wagoner.

Van Wagoner indicated that TCU OC Sonny Cumbie was instrumental to his recruitment. The three-star wideout ranks as Scout.com's No. 21 receiver in the state of Texas for the 2018 cycle. During his junior season at Lovejoy High School (Texas), the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder registered a 41-759-10 receiving line.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 ILB Ben Wilson named Cal, TCU, Washington State, Louisville, Arizona State, Vanderbilt and Utah as the seven finalists for his pledge.

A native of Sumner, Washington, Wilson ranks as Scout.com's No. 13 inside linebacking prospect in the 2018 class. Outlet analyst Greg Biggins notes that the 6-foot-2, 215-pounder is "a huge hitter who can fill a gap, get in the backfield and make plays from sideline to sideline." He believes that Wilson has the temperament and presence to develop into a team captain at his eventual program.

Rivals notes that TCU four-star 2018 verbal QB commit Justin Rogers "put on a very consistent and impressive performance" at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge.

"Rogers continues to develop and tap into some of the potential that helped him debut as Rivals100 prospect last year despite limited experience," the outlet notes, adding that "[t]he TCU commit looks to have the potential to be a future star." They slot him into their master list at No. 59 overall. He has seen his recruiting stock skyrocket over the last year-plus.

TCU four-star 2018 verbal QB commit Justin Rogers received an invitation to The Opening.

247Sports' Luke Stampini loves the marriage of quarterback and future offense, writing that Rogers is "capable of getting TCU back to its [A]ir [R]aid ways with a big arm" and then adding that "[t]he scary part about Rogers is the fact he still looks to be improving and on an upward trajectory as a player." The 6-foot-4, 180-pounder's ascension is very evident in his rise up the Rivals ranking board, with the outlet tagging him as the No. 279 prospect in the 2018 cycle last summer before subsequently bumping him all the way up to No. 59.

TCU four-star 2018 verbal QB commit Justin Rogers was named the position MVP at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in New Orleans.

"He was praised at that event by quarterback guru Steve Clarkson, who compared him to former first round draft pick E.J. Manuel," writes Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack. The 6-foot-4, 180-pounder earned an invitation to the Five-Star Challenge based on his strong output in the Louisiana camp. Rivals ranks him as the No. 59 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. A sign of just how much his recruitment has hit the turbo button over the last year -- the outlet ranked him as the No. 279 prospect in the class late last July.

TCU junior CB DeShawn Raymond will transfer.

Raymond was a four-star recruit for the 2015 cycle -- Scout.com ranked him as the No. 223 overall prospect in the class -- but his career with the Horned Frogs simply never took off. He recorded five tackles in 11 games as a special teams piece during the 2015 season and didn't play in a game during the past campaign. Now transferring out, the 6-foot-1, 188-pounder would be required to sit out the 2017 season if he moves on to another FBS outfit. In that case, he would have two years' eligibility remaining to his fair name starting in 2018.

TCU freshman WR Jalen Reagor won the gold medal in the Texas state long jump with a leap of 24 feet, five inches.

Reagor was a three-star recruit for the 2017 cycle, but is also a track standout, as evidenced by his gold medal jump. He had actually bested that 24-5 mark with a jump of 26 feet in an earlier meet. The 6-foot, 189-pounder is hoping that he can make an immediate impact on the football field, saying earlier this spring, ""I like to compete and I’m a playmaker. If you can play, you should put the best eleven on the field." ESPN's Jake Trotter would not be surprised if he made a name for himself early on, as the 6-foot, 189-pounder has the athletic chops to potentially develop into a No. 1 wideout down the road.

ESPN's Jake Trotter believes freshman WR Jalen Reagor could turn into TCU's go-to option sooner than later.

Head coach Gary Patterson apparently has been pleading for a No. 1 option, something TCU missed last season after Josh Doctson departed. Reagor is obviously different than Doctson's game, but he could be fed early.

TCU redshirt junior RB/WR Shaun Nixon (knee) returned for TCU's spring game.

Nixon missed all of last season with a knee injury. With the ability to play RB or WR, the speedy Nixon should quickly reassert himself as a valuable part of TCU's offensive gameplan this fall. We assume Nixon will primarily be used as a wideout in 2017.

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed 3-of-9 passes for 15 yards and two interceptions in the team's spring game.

Oh dear. This was a poor showing for Hill, but more than that, it was simply a dirge-like performance for the TCU offense on the whole. They failed to score on 15-of-16 possessions. Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson addressed both of Hill's interceptions, saying, "One was a good play (by the defense). The other one, he just threw it to us. We’ve got to be better than that." Hill led the Big 12 in interceptions with 13 this past season and decision-making remains an issue in his game, but he will be the likely starter come the open of the 2017 season unless the wheels completely fall off in August.

Vikings signed TCU OT Aviante Collins.

Collins (6’4/295) made 37 starts in five years with the Horned Frogs, missing most of his fifth-year junior season with a leg injury before returning to start all 13 games as a senior. Collins dabbled at left tackle early in his career but settled in at right tackle in 2016. He got a significant bump at the Combine, blazing a freakish 4.81 forty with 34 reps on the bench. Collins’ long history of injuries and inconsistency make him a project whose versatility and movement skills will work in his favor.

TCU junior WR KaVontae Turpin participated in the team's spring game after sitting out the bulk of spring practice to focus on academics.

Turpin had some classroom issues to shore up, but with those issues now in the rearview mirror, he should be a full participant come the start of August camp. An injury to his leg limited to just eight games played last season. One of the most dynamic all-around players in all the land when healthy, Turpin totaled 1,675 yards and nine touchdowns between receiving, rushing, punt returns and kick returns as a true freshman in 2015.
May 2 - 6:24 PM

Titans selected TCU OLB Josh Carraway with the No. 227 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Carraway (6’3/242) made 33 starts on the TCU defensive line, tallying 27.5 career tackles for loss, 19 sacks, and three forced fumbles and earning first-team All-Big 12 in each of his final two years. While Carraway’s size falls well short of NFL edge-player standards, he has long arms (34 1/4") and displayed impressive first-step burst and explosiveness as an outside rusher and pursuit player at TCU. Carraway is unlikely to develop into an every-down player, but he has a chance to become an impact sub-package force.
