You’ll want to stay plugged in as TCU commit Max Duggan competes with and against some of the top players in the country.

Team Dynamite has quarterbacks Max Duggan and Ty Evans, running backs Sean Dollars, Chris Tyree, and Austin Jones, wide receivers Bru McCoy, Braedin Huffman-Dixon, Maurice Massey, Marcus Washington and Jameson Williams, and tight end Michael Martinez. On defense it’s linebackers Shammond Cooper, Lance Dixon and Tristan Sinclair, cornerbacks Jeffery Carter Jr., Jeremiah Criddell, Elias Ricks, and Mykael Wright, as well as safeties Nick Cross and Jalani Williams.

Games against Maryland, TCU among most critical for Texas | Horns 247

Is this the year Texas is back? Frog fans will form an opinion in week four.

Last year’s 24-7 loss for Texas was closely contested with TCU holding a 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Longhorns, unfortunately, couldn’t advance the football and struggled to do so throughout the night to the tune of season-low marks for rushing yards (nine on 26 attempts) and total yards (263, 3.76 yards per play).

Considering the success Gary Patterson’s program has enjoyed against the Longhorns since the Horned Frogs joined the Big 12 (TCU has won five of the six meetings since 2012), a victory for Texas should be something that gets celebrated. If victory comes by way of the offense being able to do something of note against what (other than Texas’ defense) might be the best defense in the Big 12 led by a defensive guru in Patterson, it will be a tangible sign that the offense is headed in the right direction.

LOL even the Kansas site ranks Kansas last. Also, they don’t seem to realize that Kyle Hicks graduated.

3 - TCU: Running back Kyle Hicks is an exciting playmaker and the Horned Frogs should be tough on defense, but they’re breaking in a new staring quarterback in Shawn Robinson, who will be protected by an offensive line that lost four starters.

Kimber On TCU’s Radar | 247 Sports

TCU needs help on the edge, and Kimber could be a good fit. He would be excited to get an offer.

“They’re telling me to be patient and my time will come,” Kimber said. “They told me to keep doing what I’m doing; they want me to come up to some of their games and keep in touch. They’ve given me some good feedback and have told me that Coach Patterson offers defensive guys later but they love what they see. They just tell me to keep doing what I’m doing and be patient.”

In addition to being close to home, Kimber says he is intrigued by TCU’s defense. As a cornerback who likes to play on an island, he feels he would fit in well with the Frogs’ scheme on defense.

“I love TCU,” he said. “Their defense is the style I like to play; it’s good.”
