Which TCU players will hear their name in the 2018 NFL Draft? | Sports Day

It’s a potential powerhouse of a senior class this coming season, loaded with star power, especially on the defensive side of the ball. This is an interesting list - certainly not the top five guys I would expect to be listed. It disregards Ranthony Texada, Nick Orr, and Ty Summers (who will be a workout warrior, just wait), as well as offensive players like Emmanuel Porter, Joe Noteboom, and Austin Schlottman. They are high on Sammy Douglas though, a player who has battled injuries throughout his career.

Douglas played in all 13 games this season, starting four. On the season, he totaled 60 tackles - 34 solo and 5 for loss. In the game against Arkansas, he posted 17 total tackles (10 solo and 3 for loss), a career-high for him. He also recorded his first pass breakup in the game against Virginia.

7th-round pick Josh Carraway leaves TCU with something to prove | The Star-Telegram

Soft isn’t a word I would use to describe Carraway, though we probably didn’t see him at maximum potential.

He made himself into that player after redshirting his second year on campus. That came after he got into four games his freshman year.

“That was very humbling,” Carraway said. “I had three roommates, and all three of them were playing. So when they’re gone Friday nights; Saturdays watching them play, that didn’t sit well with me.”

Women’s Basketball:

TCU basketball guard AJ Alix will play for Florida State as grad transfer | The Star-Telegram

This is pretty surprising news, and a huge blow to a TCU program that has been trying to turn the corner. Coach Pebley will have to find some production elsewhere.

Guard AJ Alix, who led the TCU women in points and assists last season, will play for Florida State next season, the Seminoles announced Monday.

Florida State said Alix, two-time all-Big 12 honorable mention, will use the graduate transfer rule and be a senior. The 5-foot-6 Houston native, who averaged 13.1 points and 4.6 assists last season, will join a backcourt that lost two players Brittany Brown and Leticia Romero to graduation.
