Manor has produced a steady stream of purple people for TCU Football.

“I’m blessed to have the opportunity to play the game I love,” Lemear told HFB. “I appreciate the coaching staff at TCU for seeing something in me and taking a chance with me.”

The 6-foot, 175-pounder joins German quarterback Alexander Honig for the Frogs’ 2021 class. In addition, once Lemear arrives on campus he will become the third player from Manor to play for the Frogs; Ochaun Mathis will be a sophomore defensive end next year and the Frogs signed one of Lemear’s teammates from the 2020 recruiting class; Tyler Guyton.

A legacy offensive lineman could be a great addition to the Frogs’ class.

“It felt great,” Jackson said of receiving the offer. “I’ve been a fan of TCU since I was a kid so getting the offer felt so unreal.”

Jackson grew up a fan of TCU football largely because his father, Cedric, played for the Frogs in the early 90’s and ended up getting drafted in the 8th round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions.

The younger Jackson says his father was also excited to get the long awaited offer.

“He was very excited too,” Jackson said. “He’s also been waiting for this moment.”

With Jackson being a fan of the program, he’s seen up close the development of the offensive linemen that have played for TCU. As a tackle, it’s something that has impressed Jackson.

“I think they’re amazing at developing tackles and they’re the perfect place to go if you want to play in the next level,” he said.

The Horns are focused on Bane, but Samuel has been dominating the last couple games, too.

“I think the biggest thing is defending (Bane) as a team,” Smart said. “First off we’ll obviously have a matchup on him, but a lot of different guys will guard him over the course of the game. He comes off a ton of screening action both on and off the ball so it’s a five-man endeavor, it’s everyone working together.

“Bane is really, really good shooting the ball so not letting him get great looks from outside, making sure everything’s contested, making him put the ball down on the floor. And understand that if he does make a tough one that shouldn’t take away from our plan or our commitment to what we need to do and just making him earn everything he gets.”

Water line burst causes flooding, evacuation of King Hall | TCU 360

Whoops.

Video footage by Dawson Kundysek, a resident of King Hall, shows the weight of the water bursting through the ceiling.

“I was concerned at first. Then the ceiling collapsed and I freaked out,” Kundysek said. “The water was fast and filled our common space and I started to panic.”

All students were evacuated immediately and sent to the BLUU Auditorium for further instruction.

“The housing staff in King Hall learned about the leak minutes after it happened and took immediate action,” said Craig Allen, the director of Housing and Residence Life. “We are most concerned about the students impacted and the safety of all the residents.”
