It’s a difficult reality that this TCU baseball team isn’t at the level of the past for seasons, but there’s undeniable talent on the team. It just hasn’t all come together yet.
TCU (14-10, 3-3) was swept in the three-game Big 12 series, losing 7-6 in 11 innings Friday night, 12-7 in Saturday’s first game and 9-8 in the series finale, a game TCU led 6-0 at one point.
Pro Wells is a JUCO TE transfer from Northwest Mississippi C.C. and he’s already making an impact this spring, thanks to his receiver skills.
He may not have the speed of a wide receiver, but Wells certainly has the soft hands of one. Known for making one-handed touchdown grabs in high school, he has above average finesse skills. Good field vision and sense of balance allows him to play downhill after the catch.

Chuck Carlton, insider: Plan on Oklahoma, West Virginia and TCU probably being the top three teams in the Big 12 in some order. So if you’re looking for a darkhorse, there’s Kansas State, based on Bill Snyder always having the capacity to surprise. If you want to go out on a limb, Texas Tech has 10 defensive starters returning and it’s entire offensive line back. If Kliff Kingsbury can find a quarterback, good things could happen. And there’s the continuing conundrum of Texas. A whole lot of talent exited to proclaim that Texas is back. But some people undoubtedly will.
