Potential Big 12 football breakout players in 2017; when you can look for CFP expansion | Sports Day

Turpin a breakout player? TCU bouncing back? Carlton thinks so.

The Horned Frogs were a young team but experience alone won't solve some of the problems, including inconsistency in the passing game with QB Kenny HIll but also his receivers too. As you mentioned, was hardly recognizable by TCU standards. It will be interesting to the see the themes that Gary Patterson will emphasize in the spring.

Likely a defensive lineman in the future, Lott was a first-team all state selection in Oklahoma as a senior. He’s an intriguing prospect, that has the makings of another Gary Patterson diamond in the rough find - and an exceptional work ethic to go with enormous potential.

“Tyreece has been a tireless worker throughout his career,” Ardmore coach Josh Newby said. “He's been a three year starter and hasn't missed a game. He never missed a practice in four years.”

With a strong showing at the NFL Combine, Carraway could rise to a day two selection.

- The latest in a long line of great defensive line prospects from the Horned Frogs factory. He has the athleticism to play both outside linebacker and enough power to slide down to end on certain downs. Frame is ideal to add on more weight as well. Hidden gem of the class as TCU had a "retooling" year. Projects as a outside linebacker due to frame. Had a decent showing in the Liberty Bowl but disappeared at times.

This young man certainly seems to have the Frog Factor. It will be interesting to see if TCU stays at the top of his list, but with education one of his main concerns, it certainly appears likely.

"(I'm) amazed and honored to receive it from them today," Anderson said of the Frogs offer. The rising lineman says that the Frogs are out in front for his services at the moment. He says TCU's education is a big reason why the Frogs are a big factor in his eyes."They have a very outstanding education program and I like the way they run their offense," he said.

Overshown doesn’t have a significant offer list yet, but with Patterson on board, it’s likely just a matter of time before others catch on to the relatively unknown star, who is currently a junior.

The 6-foot-4, 196-pounder had a huge season in 2016, racking up 173 tackles with 3 interceptions as he helped the Tigers to a 12-3 record and just one game away from reaching the Class 3A state championship game.

Overshown is rated as the No. 36 safety in the nation by 247Sports.

The Frogs need help along the defensive line, and are setting their sights high in trying to steal one from the Aggies.

Johnson, who committed to the Aggies in late August, is rated as the No. 30 defensive end prospect in the nation. He recorded 11 sacks as a senior and also participated in the Under Armour All-American game last week.

No moral victories we know, but the Frogs acquitted themselves quite well in one of the toughest environments to play in across the Big 12. There’s a lot of reason to believe Dixon’s Frogs can compete nightly in the conference.

The Horned Frogs would open the second half on a 7-0 run to cut into the Mountaineers lead but a Brandon Watkins basket would stop the bleeding and put the home team back up 41-35.

The very young Lady Frogs are learning about competing in one of the toughest conferences in the country on the fly.

The Frogs, who entered the game shooting a Division I-leading 42 percent for the season on 3-pointers, were a woeful 4 of 24 (16.7 percent) against the Longhorns (10-4, 4-0). Texas was 34 of 68 from the field for 50 percent as it won its eighth straight.

TCU has been without freshman guard Amber Ramirez, a 3-point specialist, since mid-December because of an injury.
