Former TCU basketball player Kenrich Williams was added to the Denver Nuggets summer league roster on Monday.

Williams, who averaged 13.2 points and 9.3 rebounds as a senior for the Horned Frogs, went undrafted in last week’s NBA draft.

Williams will compete for the Nuggets in the NBA Summer League July 6 through July 17 at UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Predicting TCU’s Next Five Commits For The 2019 Class | Horned Frog Blitz

Ellison is high on my wish list for the Frogs.

Colt Ellison – The defensive end out of Aledo is very close to making a decision. He has taken official visits to TCU and Washington the past two weekends and visited Ole Miss unofficially two weeks ago. Ellison told HFB last week that following his visit to TCU that a decision would be coming soon. Sources have told HFB that TCU is in great shape but nothing is set in stone just yet for the 6-foot-4, 240-pounder. The good news is Ellison told HFB that Washington would be his last official visit before making a decision.

3-star offensive tackle, former TCU commit Justin Osborne commits to Auburn | AL.com

So, he committed to Auburn... de-committed. Committed to TCU... de-committed. And then re-committed to Auburn, which he knew was the place for him. Recruiting, man.

“After some thought on where I was going to go next in life, I knew deep down in my heart Auburn was the right place for my family and I,” Osborne wrote. “I am proud to say I am recommitting to Auburn University.”

Osborne is rated as the No. 40 offensive tackle in the class, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He is also considered the 55th-best player in Florida and the No. 428 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Hearst Hopes To Receive TCU Offer | 247 Sports

The Frogs are certainly looking for more playmakers in the class of 2019, and a local receiver could fit the bill.

“It would be good, it’s like a dream school because I’m right down the street,” he said. “I’d be straight. Their offense is built for receivers so I feel if I went there that I could get the ball quick.”

Although distance won’t play a big factor in his decision making, Hearst admits that he’s taking a harder look at the schools closer to home at the moment.

“I’m looking at other states but I’m focusing really on Texas schools first,” he said.

Hearst is rated as the No. 104 receiver in the nation and No. 109 overall player in Texas according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He hauled in 47 catches for 898 yards as a junior in 2017.
