Smithson Valley standout commits to TCU | My SA

This kid is a stud on both sides of the ball, and would likely be a household name if he played in a big city. TCU got a good one.

Moehrig-Woodard, who is 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, was selected as the all-purpose player on the Express-News All-Area Class 6A team after helping the Rangers finish 8-3 and reach the second round of the 6A Division I playoffs in the fall. He had four punt-return touchdowns, three kickoff-return TDs, four TD receptions, two rushing scores and also threw a touchdown pass.

Gary Patterson is going to have a difficult decision when it comes to what to do with his uber-talented freshman signal caller.

That suggests that a redshirt season is not a given for Robinson, the top quarterback recruit in TCU history, who enrolled early after leading DeSoto to an undefeated state championship season. Coach Gary Patterson said spring practice would be a “learning process” for the star recruit. Last week, he sounded an encouraging note about Robinson’s play.

Robinson played more snaps and completed more passes than any of the five quarterbacks in the spring game on Saturday, in addition to throwing the only touchdown pass.

I am really high on the defensive line, and it seems I’m not the only one. The rebuilt unit has no shortage of talent.

The Horned Frogs lost a lot of talent in the trenches, headlined by All-Big 12 DE Josh Carraway and DT Aaron Curry. Suggestions TCU will be vulnerable at the point of attack, though, might be greatly exaggerated. Ends Mat Boesen and Tipa Galeai and tackles L.J. Collier and Chris Bradley were productive in 2016, combining for 17.5 sacks. Plus, DT Ross Blacklock and DE Ben Banogu made plays throughout the spring, en route to spots on the first team. Banogu is a Louisiana-Monroe transfer who doesn’t look as if he’ll have any problems transitioning to a tougher conference.
