“I would like to thank my family, coaches teammates, professors and the TCU fans for their unwavering support,” Hackett said in a statement. “Coming to TCU was an incredible opportunity that I will always cherish. I’ve dreamed of playing in the NFL for as long as I can remember, and I am ready to move on to the next stage of making that dream a reality.”
Hackett finished fourth on the team with 75 tackles in 2014, adding 3.5 tackles for loss and a team-high seven interceptions.
Moore tweeted Friday that he’d be leaving the university following three seasons with the Horned Frogs on the football field and on the track.
The Houston Chronicle and 247Sports are among the outlets reporting that Hill plans to transfer to TCU in time for this semester. If he redshirts the 2015 season, while Trevone Boykin finishes his career, Hill could suit up for the Horned Frogs in 2016 with two years of eligibility remaining.
"While Kenny is indeed planning on transferring, we have not committed to any school at this time," Hill's father told FoxSports.com. "We will begin meeting with schools on the 15th of January when the dead period is over. Any previous reports suggesting we are committed to any school is simply inaccurate."
"We've got to get over the hump. Got to get over the hump," coach Trent Johnson said. "It got physical, kids got tested. That's all part of it."
The Horned Frogs started the season as well as any team could, but after a 13-0 start TCU is 0-2 in conference. To talk a little bit about the team, we asked Andrew Felts of Frogs O' War a few questions.
Of course, no matter what the analytic magicians might contend, the chances of each exactly achieving the statistical scoring standards from the first two games of their respective Big 12 Conference schedules are much less likely happening than an earthquake in North Texas.
