TCU football’s successful Saturday in the transfer portal included a commitment from former Memphis safety Cameron Smith, who was the third player to share his pledge to the Horned Frogs on social media during the day. Smith appeared in 31 games over three years with the Tigers, recording 74 total tackles as well as 10 passes defensed and three interceptions over that span. Smith’s strongest season came in 2023, when he totaled 57 tackles as well as nine passes defensed and three interceptions over 13 appearances.

The 6-foot, 180-pounder from Whiteville, North Carolina is the second safety transfer added by the Horned Frogs this offseason, joining former Tulsa defensive back Jaise Oliver. Smith will compete for a starting safety role at TCU this coming season, as the Horned Frogs are seeking to replace starters Mark Perry and Millard Bradford. TCU also lost multiple safeties including Randon Fontenette, Chace Biddle and Javeon Wilcox to the transfer portal.
