TCU Football Countdown: 16 Days

Another beast from The Boot highlights our daily countdown.

The #6 corner in Louisiana and an all-district running back brings us 16 days from kickoff - TCU's Torrance Mosley played his best game of the season against Minnesota and hopes for more of the same in just over two weeks. Along with current and then teammate Corey McBride, Mosley got it done on both sides of the ball for Dutchtown High School in Dutchtown, LA.

Though not the biggest guy on the field at 5'10" and 160 pounds, Torrance has none the less made a name for himself on defense, rising to the starting spot opposite fellow sophomore Ranthony Texada on the outside. With four star freshman DeSahwn Raymond close on his heels, it will be up to the DB to prove he can matchup with the big, physical receivers that dot the landscape of the Big 12.

With 4.42 speed, it was expected that Mosley may end up on the opposite side of the ball as a wide receiver, but he showed the fire and drive that GP looks for in defenders. An explosive running back in high school who scored the district title winning touchdown in the FIFTH OVERTIME on a ten yard run and averaged almost nine yards per carry as a junior in high school, Torrance can certainly make some plays with the ball in his hands - so look for him to be aggressive on defense when the ball is in the air and on the ground.

After impressing in the spring, to the point that Coach Patterson actually complimented him:

"Torrance and Ranthony have been our bright spot," Patterson said last week. "And another guy that I think will help us, O’Meally, has gotten bigger and gotten a lot stronger."

Mosley is looking to hold on to that top spot in the last two plus weeks remaining before the Frogs begin their quest against Minnesota. The rubber will hit the road, 16 days from now!
