Arkansas “Plays Best Game” In Beating TCU | Razorbacks.com

Not a bad loss for the Frogs, but a win on the road out of conference would have gone a long way come March.

TCU jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead and Razorback head coach Eric Musselman called a timeout. Arkansas responded with an 8-2 run. TCU battled back and grabbed a one-point lead (11-10) with 14:56 remaining in the half. The teams combined to score just seven points over the next three-and-a-half minutes as the teams were tied, 14-14. Whitt got a steal and fastbreak dunk with 11 minutes left to put the Hogs up two (16-14) and Arkansas never relinquished the lead the rest of the game.

“I thought, overall, this was our best game of the year,” Musselman said.

TCU’s Darius Anderson shows off his jets at the Senior Bowl | The Star-Telegram

Jet made himself some money last weekend.

Anderson went on to lead the North squad with 87 yards receiving on two receptions. He also had 43 yards rushing on seven carries.

Showcasing his receiving abilities ranked as one of Anderson’s top priorities at the Senior Bowl this week. He did that, as well as handled himself well in pass protection drills.

All of it made for a memorable week for Anderson, who helped his draft stock in Mobile, Alabama.

TCU football players already going pro can earn some bucks at this All-Star challenge | The Star-Telegram

Interesting concept and great opportunity for these future pros.

The teams are broken into the Power Five conferences, plus a “wild card” team comprised of players outside of the Power Five conferences.

Reagor and Blacklock are the first TCU players to appear since quarterback Andy Dalton in 2011. Among notable players who have taken part in this are Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, Patrick Mahomes, Von Miller and Reggie Wayne.

Players have an opportunity to earn money based on how they perform individually and as a team. Individual events include things such as a quarterback accuracy competition, an obstacle course, a strength challenge and a hands competition.

Reagor and Blacklock are early entrants into the NFL Draft. Reagor is considered one of the top receivers in a loaded WR class, and Blacklock is among the top defensive tackles.

Big names expected for TCU’s second Jr. Day | Horned Frog Blitz

The Frogs will need to restock the D in 2021.

Keith Cooper | LB – An athletic prospect out of Dickinson, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Cooper is getting heavy interest from the Frogs. Surprisingly, Cooper holds offers from just TCU and Illinois but more are sure to come throughout his recruitment.

Deuce Harmon | CB – The 5-foot-9, 185-pounder out of Denton Guyer is rated as the No. 27 cornerback prospect in the nation according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Harmon currently holds offers from ten programs including Houston, Mississippi State, Notre Dame and TCU among others. TCU offered Harmon last summer following an impressive camp performance.

Lyrik Rawls | DB – The safety prospect out of Marshall currently holds offers from Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Missouri and Texas Tech among others. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder is currently rated as the No. 29 safety prospect in the nation by 247Sports. TCU has not offered Rawls.
