With interception, TCU cornerback Texada looks full-speed again | Fort Worth Star Telegram

He’s had a really good past four games, after a shaky start to the season. Now, Texada is leading a surging TCU defense.

Patterson has praised Texada’s play the past three games, which lines up with the return of cornerback Julius Lewis on the other side. Lewis was expected to miss the season with an Achilles injury from January, but his early return has finally given the Horned Frogs their top two cornerbacks.

TCU building towards strong 2017 campaign, but focus is finishing 2016 strong | Sports Day

Newy Scruggs held a chat with folks to talk about college football, and there are some good TCU nuggets in it. Including this quote:

Gary Patterson is building up a very good 2017 squad. Kenny Hill has not been as good as I thought he would be but hopefully he will take that next step. The Frogs defense is finally coming around. The bigger issue is finishing 2016 well enough to make it to a bowl game. TCU has games against Oklahoma State, Texas and K-State to end the season.

TCU gets commitment from JC power forward | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Andre Pierce is expected to sign today, during college basketball’s early signing period.

The TCU men’s basketball program has received a commitment from Andre Pierce, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Lee College in Baytown. Pierce, a Jacksonville, Fla. native, averaged 7.7 points and 3.9 rebounds per game during the 2014-15 season while making 48.9 percent of his shots from the field. He redshirted last year while adding weight to his 6-9, 215-pound frame.
