Hallelujah praise Jesus. Rogers has been working out with a guy he worked with in high school, Jeff Harper. Here’s part of what Harper had to say.
“He looked really, really good,” Harper said. “He does not look like he’s coming back from an injury at all. We talked about the whole issues he was having with his foot, the injury he had was so severe that the nerve has taken a lot of time to regenerate.
“But he looked really, really good. He wasn’t hesitant or worried about his legs. I put him through a battery of drops and directional movements, throwing off platforms, multiple arm angles where he couldn’t set his feet … I didn’t see any evidence that he is not ready to go.”
TCU will hire Kelly to be the outside WRs coach, while Rusty Burns will move to an analyst position. Kelly’s popularity has been on the rise recently, and it seems like TCU got a good one.
Kelly has had a whirlwind the last couple of months. He was initially set to join Stephen F. Austin as its receivers coach before being hired by Arkansas State in mid-January. Now he’s flipping to TCU a little more than a month later.
Gladney will be a cornerstone for TCU’s defense in 2019.
Gladney emerged as one of the leading defensive backs in the Big 12 last season, shutting down wide receivers such as Texas Tech’s Antoine Wesley and Oklahoma State’s Tylan Wallace en route to 30 solo tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble. His 13 pass breakups were tied for the second most in the Big 12.
With Russell Barlow banged up, TCU may roll with a seven-man rotation tonight in Morgantown.
”We’ll see,” Dixon said. “We’ll see. Seven-man sounds like a lot right now, but every day ... I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Just keep going with what you have and we’ve done a pretty good job of that considering all that’s been going on.”
