Jalen Reagor shines one final time in a TCU uniform | The Star-Telegram

Reag and Ross got one last chance to shine in purple.

TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor had the best hands in the 2020 State Farm All-Star Challenge on Monday at AT&T Stadium.

Reagor had an impressive showing during his individual drill, hauling in every pass thrown his way by Kansas quarterback Carter Stanley. He had no drops on the day, including the individual and team portion.

Reagor won the “hands competition” by going through a number of routes in 15.9 seconds, one-tenth of a second better than Washington running back Salvon Ahmed and a half-second better than Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy (16.4).

Could Reagor reignite the Pats offense?

Whether it’s Tom Brady throwing passes in 2020 or someone else, the Patriots need a receiver who can separate down the field. Reagor is an explosive athlete who can put a jolt into a lifeless offense.

Closing on Williams would be a cherry on top of a really strong class.

The 6-foot-4.5, 205-pounder has become the most coveted receiver prospect in the state as we draw closer to the second signing day. Williams released a final three of SMU, Arkansas and TCU earlier this month. But, a new school entered the mix with Texas offering Williams early last week.

Williams has become a huge priority for the Frogs as they try to load up on as many talented outside receivers as they can for the 2020 recruiting class. Leading the way for the Frogs’ recruiting efforts is Malcolm Williams, who is an east Texas native out of Longview.

‘We tried to mimic his moves.’ TCU players, coaches saddened by Kobe Bryant’s death | The Star-Telegram

This is a generation who literally grew up watching Kobe.

“That was a tough one, man,” Samuel said on Monday. “I had no words at the time. Just seeing Kobe had passed … it was crazy. It’s not like something you’d expect to see in a headline. It was just kind of tough.

“He was somebody I really looked up to growing up in the Caribbean. At that time I was a Celtics fan, but I had watched Kobe and some of my friends were Kobe fans, so it’s something we always talked about — being like Kobe, trying to go out on the basketball court and mimic his moves.”
