Prospects attending 2023 MLB Draft |
TCU's all-time home run leader is a projected first round pick and will be attending the draft in-person in Seattle

Brayden Taylor, 3B, Texas Christian (No. 15): Taylor set TCU’s single-season and career home run records, setting the stage for him to become the program’s first first-round position-player pick. He’s one of the best college bats available, and is younger and more projectable than most college hitters.

The Athletics have been linked to college bats all spring, basically anyone with a chance to go in the first round, and the rumors are strong enough that passing on Jenkins would not be a surprise. Taylor finished the season very well with the Horned Frogs after stumbling out of the gate, well enough that he's now back in the mix for a top 10 pick.

Norrie downs Machac in four sets to set second round meeting with Eubanks | Britwatch Sports
TCU's Cameron Norrie's 2nd Round match at Wimbledon will be this morning vs. American Chris Eubanks

Norrie will look to be aggressive on return and will need to keep Eubanks guessing throughout the match. Meanwhile the American will look to use his serve to dominate the tempo of the match and use his forehand to take Norrie’s attacking options away. This will be a tough match for Norrie but the best of five set format should suit him more and his experience will be vital here.

Reds' Brandon Williamson: Hurls three shutout innings |
The Reds are hot and TCU's Brandon Williamson had another solid outing in a Cinci win

Williamson made it through just one inning before the game was delayed nearly two hours due to rain. However, despite the long break, the right-hander still returned to the mound to complete another two innings of work and actually struck out the first two batters he faced following the delay. Williamson has now allowed three earned runs or fewer in five consecutive starts and has not surrendered a home run in either of his last three.

Five programs positioned for regression seasons in 2023 | On3
Can TCU pull off the impossible again in 2023?

The Horned Frogs had a magical, historical, aberrational one-in-a-generation 2022 season. As much as Sonny Dykes doesn’t want TCU labeled as a one-hit wonder, repeating such an outlier season isn’t just unlikely — but perhaps impossible.

Horned Frogs First Person: Major Everhart | TCU Athletics
The dynamic RB-turned-WR Major Everhart is ready for his time to shine

I chose TCU because it felt like home. I have a lot of family here. My grandma and aunt are 10 minutes from TCU, so it’s nice to go over and share a meal with them. My parents plan on moving down to Fort Worth one day, too. I knew that being in a place surrounded by family and friends would build me up as a person. They put a smile on my face, and always let me know that I’m not alone.
