TCU basketball lands a ‘tough, physical’ combo guard from Memphis | The Star-Telegram

He has a chance to pop off in Fort Worth.

One source described Baugh as a “high-level combo guard.” A few adjectives attached were “tough, physical, athletic.” Baugh is listed at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds.

Baugh started 25 of 31 games as a true freshman during the 2019-20 season, averaging 4.1 points and 3.6 rebounds. He also had 86 assists, which ranked second for the Tigers that season.

He started only four of the 26 games he played in this season, averaging 3.4 points and 2.6 rebounds a game.

Baugh is the fourth transfer TCU has landed this offseason, along with Maxwell Evans (Vanderbilt), Shahada Wells (UTA) and Xavier Cork (Western Carolina). The Frogs also have one incoming recruit in Navarro College’s Souleymane Doumbia, the top-rated JUCO big man in the country.

This is a really cool story.

“After I came back from overseas, I really wasn’t comfortable playing basketball. I could still score and move, but I wasn’t comfortable,” he said. “I just decided to take my size and see what I could do on a football field.”

He wanted to try out for the XFL last season, but by the time he was ready the league folded. He found a semi pro team in Dallas to play for, and now he’s with the Bulls.

He’s not doing this for the money. This league is not exactly flush with cash. Players typically make make $100 to $250 a game, plus meals.

A TCU graduate, he currently lives in Keller with his fiancee. He works in Carrollton for a plumbing supply company.

TCU S Ar’Darius Washington to Cowboys “Come and Get Me” | SI.com

AD wants to stay close to home.

TCU safety Ar’Darius Washington was one of the premier talents at the position in college football during his time in Fort Worth, and now, he is taking his talents to the NFL where he hopes, Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys will be waiting.

“If you want a ballhawk, come and get me,” Said Washington in an interview with 105.3 the Fan’s Nosebleed Seats on Thursday night.

A ballhawk is exactly what the Cowboys need, and Washington is one of the best at that in the entire 2021 NFL Draft class.
