Thank goodness.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas – Due to extreme foggy conditions in Huntsville, the TCU-Sam Houston State baseball game has been canceled. No make-up date was announced. The Horned Frogs return to the diamond Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. against Houston in the Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

TCU needs to probably win two of their next three and at least one in KC to have a shot at the Dance.

The Horned Frogs had had some moments recently, including a sweep of Iowa State, but have also picked up their two worst losses of the season in the last two weeks. TCU could use another big win or two, and they will get some chances at home against Texas Tech and league-leader Kansas State.

TCU in strong pursuit for 4-star QB Haynes King | 247 Sports

You can never have too much talent in the QB room, and King would be a GREAT add.

“The coaching staff has no secrets around them; it’s just one family and they get the job done together,” King said.

In addition to Anderson, who recruits east Texas for the Frogs, King has also built a solid relationship with offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie. King says he’d feel comfortable with Cumbie if he ultimately chooses TCU.

“He knows the game for sure; if I decided to go there I know Coach Cumbie knows the game and he’ll try to get you to the next level.”

King has not set a timeframe for when he wants to make a decision just yet. He plans to visit Arkansas on March 9th and Tennessee on March 10th. As for what he’s looking for in a program, the coaching staff will be a huge factor.

“I’m looking at the consistency of the coaching staff and the degree plan and the support within that degree plan. I’m looking at the offensive style and the quarterback development. I believe I fit in with a lot of offensive styles. Wherever I decide to go I’ll do the best I can do.”

Mims echoes what we hear from a lot of recruits.

“Every time I go up there they treat me like family; I really do love it,” Mims said. “The loyalty with them is really strong. When I go up there I feel at home. They just got Max Duggan which is a main pitch and it’s good because they’ve got an elite level quarterback that can throw up there.

“It’s just a good atmosphere up there especially with the recruiting coordinator Rachel (Phillips); she does a really good job up there. I really like it.”

Last season Jalen Reagor was among the top productive receivers in the nation. The dynamic athlete set some school records along the way as he hauled in over 1,000 receiving yards. Unfortunately for TCU fans, 2019 could very well be Reagor’s last season as a Frog as some feel he could leave school early and declare for the 2020 NFL Draft; he will certainly be high on draft boards.

That could mean instant production for Mims if he chooses TCU. Mims says the TCU coaches have told him they’d utilize him in a similar role they do Reagor which is something that he is familiar with.
