Can anyone plea Josh Carraway as tip frog on a TCU roster?
May 20, 2016 - Finding Carter
5. Kenny Hill / youth / quarterback / Just how good is Hill? For an analysis of how a former Texas AM quarterback has finished in a TCU module given his transfer, Gary Patterson had this to contend to Carlos Mendez of a Fort Worth Star-Telegram recently: “He’s been awesome.” While a starting pursuit isn’t guaranteed to go to Hill, he positively creates a best box for it on paper. The former Southlake Carroll star started a initial 8 games of a 2014 deteriorate during AM, including a school-record opening (511 yards) in a opener opposite South Carolina. He finished with 2,649 flitting yards and 23 touchdowns, yet a three-game losing strain cost him a starting job. With a weapons during his ordering in Fort Worth, Hill — if he is to be a starter — could be primed for a lapse to a inhabitant spotlight. Right now, though, he is still in a foe with Foster Sawyer for that starting job.
4. Kyle Hicks / youth / tailback / Like each actor in a tip five, Hicks (Arlington Martin) is a product of a D-FW high propagandize football machine. With Aaron Green out of a picture, Hicks, who showed a lot of guarantee in spurts via a season, should have a inside lane to winning a starting tailback pursuit this spring/fall. He suffered a vital knee damage during a finish of his comparison deteriorate during Martin and redshirted in 2013, yet it was apparent final deteriorate — quite in a season’s second half — that Hicks is returning to a form that done him a four-star recruit. He played in all 13 games final deteriorate and carried a round 55 times for 262 yards and 3 scores. He will be approaching to play a lot of snaps with Green in a NFL now.
3. KaVontae Turpin / sophomore / far-reaching receiver / If a charge was to arrange pound-for-pound rankings, a 5-9, 152-pound matchup calamity would be during a tip of a list. Turpin played in each diversion and started five, including a four-touchdown opening opposite Texas in October, and he led a group with 1,675 all-purpose yards. He ranked 27th nationally in all-purpose yards per diversion (128.9). Big things wait a bomb Turpin. He will be a reserve valve for whoever wins a TCU starting QB pursuit — if a QB can’t find anyone else, Turpin will be there, anticipating a approach to get open and make plays.
2. Ranthony Texada / junior / cornerback / Of a players TCU mislaid early final deteriorate to injuries for a poignant volume of time, Texada competence have been a biggest loss. A still cornerstone of a invulnerability in 2014 (13 starts as a redshirt freshman; Scout.com second-team Freshman All-American), Texada was set for a breakout-type deteriorate in 2015 as a Horned Frogs’ No. 1 cornerback. Instead, a Frisco Centennial alum suffered a season-ending knee damage opposite SMU in Week 3 — one that’ll keep him out of open practice. A healthy Texada would be a outrageous further for TCU’s secondary, that has a need for some-more assistance during a cornerback position.
1. Josh Carraway / comparison / defensive finish / After appearing in all 13 games as a redshirt beginner in 2014 (seven starts included), a Flower Mound Marcus ex kicked it adult another nick in 2015 on his approach to first-team All-Big 12 honors. Carraway was a buttress on a defensive line, and one of 4 defenders to start each diversion final season. The 6-foot-4, 250-pounder purebred 47 sum tackles, 11.5 for detriment and 9 sacks. There is no doubt he is a best and most-feared member of a TCU register during this indicate in time.
