Everyone knew that TCU was in need of another quarterback on the roster, and now it appears they got one.
Kansas State quarterback Alex Delton has announced his plans to transfer to TCU. He’ll be on campus starting this week.
Man I am so blessed for what I’ve learned through this game & how it has shaped me. I’m proud of what I’ve done but I am not done yet... Change of plans. I will be finishing my final year at TCU. Excited to get started!!! @TCUFootball pic.twitter.com/is55VZtZdY— Alex Delton (@adelton005) January 16, 2019
Delton was originally planning to transfer to UTEP, but TCU came calling and he changed his plans.
The Frogs only have three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster for 2019: Justin Rogers, Mike Collins, and early enrollee Max Duggan. Delton will come in and compete for the starting job.
Delton threw for 1,202 yards and five touchdowns in two seasons at Kansas State (as a part-time starter), while also running for 868 yards and 11 touchdowns over that time span.
The Frogs were also rumored to be in the running for Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, but that ship seemed to head in a different direction over the weekend, when Hurts visited Maryland and Oklahoma, then passed over TCU to visit Miami.
TCU had also had conversations with potential Oklahoma transfer QB Austin Kendall.
So, the Frogs get their fourth quarterback, and the spring will be interesting to see who sets themselves apart in the race to be the starter.
