Turpin didn't receive nearly as many accolades as he deserved, but this is a pretty good one.
Turpin averaged 27.0 yards on 27 kickoff returns in 13 games for the Horned Frogs, second only to Kansas State senior Morgan Burns, who averaged 33.5. On punt returns, Turpin averaged 10.6 yards on 17 chances, including a touchdown return.
The Frogs class got bigger with the latest addition. Literally.
TCU landed a big commitment on Saturday from four-star DT Ross Blacklock, who chose the Horned Frogs over Texas A&M and Houston at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Blacklock should develop into a huge 330-pound run stuffer in Gary Patterson's defense.
It's just one game, but it could be the start of something bigger.
“Obviously, we’ve been coming close against good teams in this league,” Johnson said. “There’s a lot more good teams in this league, there’s a lot more games to play, so we need to learn from it. We’ve had two good halves versus two good teams in league play at home.”
This is a must read, penned by former TCU swimmer Cooper Robinson.
