Purdue fans are mad, but this makes so much sense for TJ and TCU.
The Horned Frogs lost their top three tackles — all seniors — from last year’s team (starters Lucas Niang and Anthony McKinney and swing tackle David Bolisomi).
“I feel that God has blessed me with the ability to help this team win games at offensive tackle,” said Storment, who is 6-foot-7, 315 pounds.
Outside of the football reasons, Storment added: “The other important thing that drew me to TCU was my faith in Jesus! I’ve been rooting for the Frogs for a while!”
Among other schools interested included Texas, Miami and Florida State.
There were concerns with his primary recruiter leaving, but Dom seems excited about the new staff member.
Despite finding out not long before signing day that Luper would be leaving, Richardson stayed true with his decision and signed with the Frogs. He admits he was upset at first knowing he’d be coached by someone other than Luper, but knows he stuck with the Frogs for the right reasons.
“It was a big upset for me and a lot of pressure on what I was going to do, but I realized I fell in love with the program and loved how the coaching staff treated my family; so therefore TCU was home for me,” he said.
Although he has spoken with Cumbie before, Richardson says Thursday’s visit helped ease any questions he had.
“Coach Cumbie is a great individual and great coach, I felt like we connected very highly and what he had to say to me today was great,” Richardson said.
Put some respect on his name! Also, how cool is it that so many TCU coaches are getting these opportunities?
Patterson isn’t the only TCU head coach set to take over a presidency position in 2020. According to Donati, fourth-year TCU men’s basketball coach will be named the president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches in April, while women’s golf coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin will be named the President of the Women’s Golf Coaches Association later in the spring. Baseball head coach Jim Schlossnagle is also serving as the third vice president for the American Baseball Coaches Association.
TCU smothered the Cowboys.
The Pokes did defend holding TCU to 33 percent shooting. But with just over five to play, Desmond Bane hit a triple to put the TCU lead up to 16 and pretty much end all hopes of a comeback. He had 20.
OSU lost 52-40 and fall to 9-6 (0-3). The Cowboys 181 points combined through conference play so far is the fewest in a a three game stretch to open Big 12 play since 1967.
