Surge of TCU pitching rotation a reminder of this time last year | Fort Worth Star Telegram

I’m trying to tell y’all, if this staff gets going like they can, the Frogs are in good shape.

“When you do well, obviously it builds confidence, and you can build off of that, and when you do things positively, you just continue to get better,” Traver said after his seven-inning outing in a semifinal elimination game against Texas. “I think the timing is great, but I was just really excited how the guys pitched this weekend. I think that there are a lot of positives we can take away. For me personally, I’m definitely in that group.”

Strong and Weak: TCU Horned Frogs | ESPN

Jake Trotter breaks down the strongest and weakest positions for TCU as we get closer to college football season. I was pretty surprised by his picks.

Strongest position: Linebacker

In Travin Howard and Ty Summers, the Horned Frogs boast one of the best linebacker duos in the country.

Howard topped the league with 130 tackles last season before becoming a first-team All-Big 12 selection. Summers was a second-team pick after finishing with 121 tackles, second in the league only to Howard.

Stalder helped the Horned Frogs go 22-5 this season and advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA team championship for the second time in three years. They won their second straight Big 12 regular season and tournament championships.

Recruiting

TCU QB target Justin Rogers to decide Wednesday night | Scout.com

Justin Rogers is arguably the No. 1 recruit on TCU’s board for the 2018 class, and he decides between the Frogs, LSU, and North Carolina on Wednesday night. The sense is that he’ll be a Horned Frog by day’s end.

As a junior, Rogers accounted for 3,828 total yards and 42 total touchdowns. Rogers threw for 3,021 yards, 31 touchdowns, and eight interceptions while rushing for 709 yards and 11 touchdowns.
