Darrion Flowers Inks With Football and Track

Speed kills and TCU added more of it, with the speedy receiver/corner/returner Flowers signing on.

TCU Football and TCU Track will be celebrating together over the signing of Arlington Sam Houston's Darrion Flowers, an electric athlete who will have a chance to make a difference for both programs next year. At 5'9" and 160 pounds, with legit sub 4.4 speed, Flowers will follow in the footsteps of Kolby Listenbee and Cameron Echols-Luper, both of who have shined on the field and the track for the Frogs in recent years.

Flowers, who chose TCU over over several P5 programs - including Missouri, Nebraska, Illinois, among others - relished the opportunity to play close to home and sign with a school that had successful teams in both of his sports. He is the nation's fastest high schooler, having posted a best in the nation 10.27 100m dash and is the reigning 5A champion at that event. His track speed translates well to the football field, where he was used all over at Sam Houston, racking up almost 700 yards and 6 touchdowns as a senior.

With Listenbee and Gray nearing the close of their collegiate careers and CEL moving to the defensive side of the ball, it's awesome to see another exceptional athlete come in to the fold. Part of a stacked wide receiving class, Flowers could be a candidate for a redshirt, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him find his way on to the field much like Desmon White did this past season.
