There are quite a few position battles to keep an eye on as TCU enters spring ball season. One of them, arguably the most important, is along the offensive line.
The most wide open area on the team is the offensive line. Four starters need to be replaced. Replacing left tackle Joseph Noteboom is the biggest concern. It will likely come down to Lucas Niang and Anthony McKinney, an early enrolled signee from Iowa Western Community College. Complicating matters is the loss of Sam Awolope, who left the program for undisclosed reasons.
Hicks spoke a lot about his own future, but he also gave Frog fans a glimpse at the future for TCU.
On Shawn Robinson likely becoming TCU’s starting quarterback: “Shawn is definitely ready. He has a lot of raw potential and a lot of raw talent, and I’m excited to see how he grows this offseason and getting ready to step into the quarterback role. I think he’s going to do a good job. I think he’s going to handle it well.”
The Frogs thumped UTA on Thursday after a thrice rain-delayed game finally took place. Now, they’ll turn around and play again Friday, as UC Irvine comes to town.
A quartet of multi-run innings helped No. 3 TCU stretch its win streak to three games as the Horned Frogs defeated UT Arlington 14-1 Thursday night at Lupton Stadium. Luken Baker and Josh Watson homered for the Frogs.
The Frogs postseason begins Saturday, as the Frogs take on the Sooners in Oklahoma City. TCU split the regular season series with OU.
The game will be televised on many FOX Sports regional networks, including FOX Sports Southwest Plus, with Ron Thulin, Brenda VanLengen and Missy Heidrick on the call. The game can also be heard on KTCU 88.7 FM in Fort Worth, as well as online via FrogVision, with Jeff Williams doing play-by-play.
