Chase opens up on the eve of his college decision | 247 Sports

The top TCU target will make his decision this evening between LSU and TCU. His latest interview, from the Elite 11 competition in Oregon, could be good for the Frogs.

"I think I made a decision. I am just thinking about it right now. I just have them in mind. For this morning, this is the only school that I’m thinking about. Until I start thinking about the other school, then my mind starts switching on me.”

Chase admits that TCU was the team to beat from the beginning of his process, with the Horned Frogs making him a big priority when they turned the page to start recruiting the current 2018 class.

"TCU is like a family,” Chase said. "I have been there four or three times. It’s just like a family, and they treat me well.”

Love that Hill is spending time at the Manning Passing Academy, and like his confidence heading into the season, as well.

While serving as a camp counselor last week at the Manning Passing Academy held at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, TCU senior quarterback Kenny Hill said college football fans can expect the Horned Frogs to leap back into national title contention this season.

“You can expect big things from TCU this year,” Hill said. “I think we’re going to have a really good team this year coming back. I think we’re going to be a lot better. We’re expecting to have a big bounce back year.”

This article doesn’t even mention Michael Onyemaobi. I think he’s starting before the end of the season. He and Daniels are a potent 1-2 freshman punch.

The secondary will continue to be held down with the return of Small, Gladney, Texada and Orr. Niko Small recorded 83 tackles, two interceptions and nine deflected passes last season. In the Liberty Bowl, he tallied 12 tackles and was named the defensive MVP. Ranthony Texada will also be an impact player once again for the Frogs. After returning from an injury, Texada tallied 73 tackles on the season and in the game against Baylor returned an interception for a 28-yard touchdown. Although these veteran players will make an impact, some true freshman also have the ability to see the field right away. Garret Wallow and Noah Daniels will be dangerous weapons for the Frogs. Wallow’s speed in the backfield and Daniels’ versatility in playing both sides of the ball, make them instant threats.

The former Frog has found a landing spot, after being kicked off the team following a fight. This article fails to mention why he left Fort Worth, though.

Tipa recorded 5.5 sacks at TCU and was on track to continue receiving big playing time. He did have to sit out a few games with injury last year but returned to the bowl game.

Tipa will likely step into a hybrid DE/OLB role at Utah State where he can utilize his knack for making big time plays.

Aggie fans will have to wait a year to watch him in real games but it is always good to add talent and especially the ability to rush the passer.
