It's always cool to see guys from TCU on lists like these.
The Horned Frogs' Trevone Boykin was the team's quarterback. USC's Cody Kessler, Mississippi State's Dak Prescott, Michigan State's Connor Cook and Ohio State's J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones all had claim to the spot. None, however, had a better 2014 season than Boykin, who topped all of the above in total offense while quarterbacking the Horned Frogs to a record of 12-1. Boykin also has nine other offensive starters returning around him. And in his second season operating the Doug Meacham/Sonny Cumbie spread offense, Boykin could be poised for an even bigger campaign this season.
One of the best hitting catchers TCU has had comes back. We should all be excited to see what he can do with Skoug and Plunkett behind the plate.
Elander hit .333 in 169 games for the Horned Frogs, hitting 18 home runs and driving in 114 runs. He hit .356 as a freshman on the 2010 College World Series team.
Elander will be a student assistant.
“Josh is one of the truly great former TCU Baseball players,” said head coach Jim Schlossnagle. “He performed at a very high level on and off the field and was a tremendous leader, living out the core values of our program daily. He is going to be a great resource for our current players and I have no doubt will be a great addition to our staff.”
Alex Rybakov, from Coral Gables, Florida, is a major get for the TCU tennis program.
Rybakov, a 6-foot-1 lefty from Coral Springs, Fla., becomes the fourth member of the 2015 recruiting class and will join the team in January 2016 after spending the fall playing in the professional circuit.
Jennifer Fazioli will take over for the Frogs.
Fazioli coached VMI’s distance runners for the past three years. She helped the VMI men finish third at the Southern Conference cross country championships last fall.
