TCU News: Pro Frogs making impressions in football and baseball

Big Game Howie and John Diarse have both turned heads as they move up the professional ranks.

Wide receiver John Diarse might be an undrafted gem for the Denver Broncos | Mile High Report

The former Frog has made a big impression on the Broncos - and their fans - early. We aren’t surprised.

However, Diarse was a name that kept showing up during Broncos OTA’s and if he can continue to keep his name showing up through training camp then he could end up a sneaky good pick up for the Broncos.

The Good

When he’s not turning his master’s degree into a startup venture called Young. Fresh. Free., Diarse is honing his craft as a now NFL wide receiver. His acumen for business has translated well to the field as a rookie, which is something he needs in order to catch onto an NFL roster as an undrafted free agent.

TCU football’s top 3 recruiting prospects for 2019 | The Star-Telegram

We will be out watching Duggan do his thing this weekend at the Elite 11 Finals in Frisco at The Star!

Of TCU’s 14 commitments, here is our look at the top three prospects:

Four-star quarterback Max Duggan (Council Bluffs, IA/Lewis Central): Duggan is currently the highest-rated commitment for the Frogs in 2019 and, by all accounts, it looks like he’s locked in with that verbal pledge. But that won’t stop other programs from pursuing the No. 10 dual-threat QB in the country, according to 247.

If this game lives up to the hype... hoo boy.

Like week 1, week 3 has some gems on the slate, but the one to watch is the non-conference matchup between Ohio State and TCU, two teams that have met just six times in history, the last coming in 1973. While it’d be way more fun to see the Buckeyes have to travel to Fort Worth, JerryWorld is the next best thing. This will be the first major test for Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State’s redshirt sophomore QB who showed some promise in relief for J.T. Barrett last season. TCU will almost certainly be taking a step back with the loss of QB Kenny Hill, but you have to think head coach Gary Patterson and his defense can keep the Horned Frogs in the game until Urban Meyer runs up the score like the coward savage he is.

Breakout minor leaguers for all 30 teams | ESPN

Big Game Howis making moves. It’s just a matter of time before the Former TCU Ace finds his way into a Big League rotation.

Oakland Athletics: RHP Brian Howard. Howard has average stuff, but his lanky 6-foot-9 frame creates awkward angles for hitters to deal with, and Howard is a polished pitch-sequencer. He was off prospect radars entering the season (including mine, until I saw him during the spring) but is a likely big leaguer, possibly even as a rotation piece.
