Revisiting TCU’s 2020 WR recruiting board | Horned Frog Blitz

Give me Mims!

Marvin Mims – Another four-star, Mims was last on TCU’s campus in the spring and has had TCU among his favorites for quite a while. Mims is projected as a slot receiver at the next level and TCU will definitely be in the hunt for one after missing out on Corey Wren, who recently committed to Georgia and Ja’Khi Douglas, who committed to Florida State on July 4th. No word has been given for when Mims expects to visit TCU again and some feel it’s a battle between two Pac-12 programs; Stanford and Colorado.


Finally, Dixon again playing with a full deck at TCU | PressBox DFW

This is the team Dixon has been trying to collect since he arrived at TCU three years ago.

“Hopefully we can play guys at positions that we actually intend them to play,” Dixon said. “Last year we had a completely different lineup than I anticipated. Kouat was playing a different position than I anticipated him playing. Desmond was really playing a different position. That kind of happens when you lose a couple guys.”

The Frogs are certainly closer to the model Dixon has in mind for the new era that college basketball is entering, where transfers and one- and two-year stints become more commonplace as growing numbers of players seek NBA inroads.

Report: Xavier transfer Keonte Kennedy leaves TCU for UTEP |

TCU Basketball needed to get the roster down by one, and it seems as though that has been accomplished.

Kennedy, a 6-foot-5 guard from Austin, Texas, averaged 2.0 points and 1.4 rebounds per game in 22 games during his only season at XU. He left the team for personal reasons on Feb. 20, and entered the NCAA transfer portal in March.

Kennedy committed via Twitter to TCU in April, and the Horned Frogs welcomed him to the family via Twitter shortly thereafter. It is not known when he left Fort Worth.

Around Campus:

One vision. Two universities. Three years of work. The payoff: A new medical school | The Star-Telegram

Not sports, but this is huge for the university on so many levels.

“We are truly excited — after three full years — of welcoming our class next week to the campus for the first time,” said Carlos Tapia, the medical school’s director of admissions. “They have been here for interviews, but I think now it is becoming real in a sense. They are excited and we are excited that they will be here.”

The opening of the medical school marks the fruition of a much touted partnership between TCU and the UNTHSC. These doctors-in-training will attend both campuses while also learning hands-on in professional clinics across the community.
