TCU saw its quarterback depth tested during the 2023 season, when the Horned Frogs once again lost starting signal caller Chandler Morris to a knee injury. Redshirt freshman Josh Hoover filled in admirably over the second half of the season, but after Morris went into the transfer portal earlier this offseason, TCU was left with only Hoover as a scholarship quarterback with starting experience. That changed on Thursday, when former Vanderbilt signal caller Ken Seals announced his commitment to the Horned Frogs on social media.

Seals appeared in 28 games and started 22 games over his four-year career with the Commodores, throwing for 4,292 yards and 28 touchdowns with 22 interceptions. Arguably his best season at Vanderbilt was this past fall, when he threw for 11 touchdowns and just four interceptions over six starts. Seals holds a career 60.5 completion percentage and has rushed for three touchdowns. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder from Azle, Texas played his high school football at Weatherford and was a three-star recruit by Rivals, 247Sports and ESPN.

Seals started nine games as a freshman, throwing for a career-high 1,928 passing yards with 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Seals started seven games as a sophomore in 2021, firing for 1,181 passing yards and five touchdowns. After not seeing game action during the 2022 campaign, Seals returned in 2023 and played in 10 games, starting six. Seals currently ranks seventh in Vanderbilt history with 4,292 passing yards and ninth in program history with 28 touchdown passes. His highlights from the 2023 season include a strong effort against Missouri, where went 20-for-30 for 259 yards and three total touchdowns.

Seals is the 15th overall player and the first quarterback to transfer to the Horned Frogs over this offseason. TCU currently has the third-ranked transfer class in the nation by 247Sports.
