Among TCU's incoming wider receivers, there are some big names and highly regarded recruits. Michael Carroll isn't one of those household names - yet - but he hopes to make his mark in TCU's explosive offense. a 6'1" receiver out of Beavercreek High School in Ohio, Carroll played defensive back in high school, and also starred for his varsity basketball team as a shooting guard. A hard hitter who runs a 4.6 40, it will be interesting to see what he does on the offensive side of the ball.
TCU also sports a second #43, and he is a freshman as well. There is a pretty good lineage of linebackers that wear that number for the Frogs - could a local kid be the next great one? Linebacker Davis Devereaux comes to the Frogs from Parish Episcopal School in Dallas, and will look to see the field after taking a redshirt year a season ago. At 6'1" with good speed, Devereaux played a little offense (as a tight end) in high school as well, but was recruited for his defensive abilities. Davis is a good leader as well - he was a team captain and an Academic All-State choice his senior year. With some many changes in the middle for the TCU D, Devereaux hopes to find the field as he enters his second year with the Frogs.
Last year, the Frogs also had two #43s, and they mirrored the two incoming. Tight end Cliff Murphy and linebacker Jonathan Anderson wore the number made famous by Tank Carder a few seasons ago. And, since we are mentioning Tank... I will just leave this here:
Two #43s, one day closer to college football.
