A question mark a season ago, the cornerback position has been a pleasant surprise this spring, led by converted receiver Tony James. On the other side of the ball, even with several major 2015 contributors sitting out, the wide out crew looks stacked.
the Horned Frogs had no problem putting talent on the field at receiver for the spring game. Led by reigning Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year KaVontae Turpin, this figures to be one of the better units in the Big 12 once again.
The Frogs were so good the last two seasons on the home run ball, led by the speed of Kolby Listenbee, the ball skills of Josh Doctson, and the cannon of Trevone Boykin. It's a work in progress this spring, but GP says thats par for the course, and the same thing his recent graduates had to go through. It will be interesting to see if Kenny Hill or Foster Sawyer lead summer workouts, like Boykin once did when trying to win the QB job himself.
“You’ve got to get used to the guys you’re throwing with, their speed, their contact, their abilities, what they can do,” Patterson said. “That just takes time. That takes a lot of throws. It’s no different than what Kolby Listenbee and Josh Doctson and Trevone Boykin did. Now it’s going to be Kenny and Foster with all the rest of those guys, finding their niche, how they make it work.”

While most fans seem to think it's a given that Kenny Hill will be the starter come fall, there are some rumblings that Sawyer may have the early lead.
Early reports are that Sawyer might have a slight edge on Hill, but when Patterson said it will take a while to determine the starter he was not simply paying lip service to the pair.
He didn't play in today's 3-2 Rangers win, but we are likely to see hometown hero Bryan Holaday on the field soon enough.
Bryan Holaday gets to play at home this season.
The former TCU catcher will suit up for his first game as a Texas Ranger on Monday. The Rangers acquired Holaday from the Detroit Tigers on March 29.
