Four-star QB Sawyer Robertson likes what he sees in TCU | Horned Frog Blitz

One of the last visitors to TCU, he holds 16 offers already.

On the visit Robertson spent most of the time with TCU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Sonny Cumbie. Robertson had already built a good relationship with Cumbie and feels he would be in good hands if he chose the Frogs.

“He’s amazing and I really like the way he coaches and develops his quarterbacks,” Robertson said.

Robertson is ranked as the No. 9 pro-style quarterback in the nation according to the industry-generated 247Sports composite rankings. The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder has had a huge high school career, throwing for over 7,700 yards with 88 touchdowns.

The signal-caller says Cumbie has told him he’d be a great fit for the Frogs’ offense.

“Our offense is very similar to one that they run so I think I’d fit in well,” he said.

Frogs QB commit Alexander Honig disappointed he can’t visit TCU | Horned Frog Blitz

Hopefully Honig will get a chance to visit soon.

Honig was looking forward to competing against other top quarterbacks; he recently won MVP honors at a camp in New Orleans.

“It is very sad. I wanted to go out there again and compete against the best; especially after winning the MVP in New Orleans,” Honig told HFB. “But, I think it is correct to not underestimate the virus and if that is a precaution that has to be made in order to keep a lot of people healthy than that’s okay.”

Honig was not only looking for the chance to compete against other top quarterbacks at the Elite 11, he was also going to be on TCU’s campus for the first time since last July. The previous visit was with his mother and this time around his father was going to get to experience what TCU has to offer.

“I had such a great time the last time I had been on campus; so I was really looking forward to see all the coaches again,” he said. “I wanted to show my dad around and introduce him to the coaches. So I’m really disappointed not being able to do that.”

Vikings Draft Profile: Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU | Vikings Territory

With Diggs traded, the Vikings will be looking for an explosive talent. Reag fits the bill.

Reagor participated at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, and recorded the third best overall broad jump and the fourth highest vertical jump. He also ran a 4.47 second 40-yard dash, but his three cone was a mediocre 7.31 seconds and his 20-yard shuttle was a very pedestrian 4.46 seconds.

Comparing him to Stefon Diggs, Diggs is taller at 6’0” to Reagor’s 5’11”. Diggs also ran a ever so slightly faster 40-yard dash at 4.46 seconds. Diggs ran a faster 3-cone and 20-yard shuttle, but Reagor’s vertical and broad jumps were significantly better than Diggs’. Reagor also has ten pounds on Diggs in weight.

When you watch Reagor’s tape, you see just how electric he can be. He changes directions very well with the ball in his hands and can turn on the jets at a moments notice to help him mess with defenders angles. You can also see his jumping ability in the number of balls he snatches out of the air when his quarterback gets it in a position where only he can reach it.
