49ers 2023 Roster Breakdown: Linebackers | 49ers
The Niners have high hopes for former Frog LB Dee Winters

“(Linebackers coach) Johnny Holland was a huge Dee Winters fan,” Lynch said. “We trust Johnny’s eye a lot. Our scouts like Dee Winters a lot... Dee kind of fits who we are. He is a player who drew some comparisons. Comparisons are dangerous because you have to go do it, but he has similar traits to Dre Greenlaw. A similar suddenness to his game... He’s another captain and the unequivocal leader for that defense and the voice of that defense. That carried weight as well, and ultimately, we felt like Dee was just a guy we needed to bring in. We’re really excited to take him.”


Arkansas Fans Simply Are Not Ready for What's Going to Happen at TCU | Best of Arkansas Sports
With its former offensive coordinator and a former QB commit (who happens to be the son of a former head coach) leading the offense in Fort Worth, Razorback fans can continue to despise the Frogs into football season after TCU eliminated the Hogs in the NCAA Baseball tournament

Not only did Kendal Briles leave the Razorbacks to become the Horned Frogs’ offensive coordinator this offseason, but Chandler Morris – the son of former head coach Chad Morris – is set to take over as their starting quarterback.

TCU may not be on Arkansas’ schedule this season, but the presence of Briles and Morris will make the Horned Frogs appointment television in the Natural State – even if only for hate-watching purposes

Horned Frogs First Person: Jonathan Bax | TCU Athletics
The true freshman Edge/LB has already made an impression in Fort Worth; he has the mentality & work ethic to be great

Playing for TCU means you have a target on your back. We're always getting overlooked as a small school in Fort Worth, Texas, but when you put that helmet on, people know we're coming and they don't want to miss it. We're different. We're the only school with purple, black, gray and red in our swag, and we have the best jerseys, the best unity, and the best people. We had a big year last year, and we aren't going backwards. I pull from the energy and discipline of the older guys, and I know there is no room for error. We have a hunger and determination to get back to the natty, but with a different outcome – one where we are holding the trophy up.

TCU HC Sonny Dykes discusses departures of Texas, OU, new additions to Big 12 | 247Sports
During his time as a panelist at this week’s THSCA conference, Coach Dykes praised the depth and quality of the Big 12

“I truly believe the Big 12 may be the only conference in college football that the champion of our conference could get beat by the worst team in our conference. I really believe that this year. We were 11-0 and playing Iowa State who was the last place team in our league last year and I was incredibly concerned about that football game. Iowa State could beat anybody. And so, I think our league is unique that way. It makes it incredibly competitive and makes it fun to watch, makes it fun to be a part of the league.”
