2016 TCU Horned Frogs Preview


I had a chance to preview the Washington State Cougars over at The Student Section. Check it out here.

Here’s an excerpt from the preview…..

4 Key Players

Kenny Hill, QB – When he debuted for the Aggies, Kenny Hill looked like he was going to be the next Heisman Trophy winner for Texas A&M. Ultimately, things did not work out for Hill in College Station but during his stay he proved he has a boatload of talent. If Gary Patterson can harness the Kenny Hill that we saw early in 2014, then TCU could be in for a fantastic ride in 2016.

KaVontae Turpin, WR – Turpin is not going to replace Josh Doctson. That’s okay for the Frogs because the two players are completely different. The Frogs would love to find a player in the mold of Doctson to pair with Turpin but if they don’t, they shouldn’t worry too much. Why? Turpin will impact multiple facets of the game for the Frogs. He will return kicks, he will get some hand-offs, but mostly he will be a load for any opponent to try to handle in the slot.

Kyle Hicks, RB – TCU doesn’t need an All-American at running back. What the offense does need is someone that they can rely on. Hicks should be able to fill that role this year and it’s very important that he does. With the offensive line losses the Frogs have, Hicks needs to be able to get positive yardage when called upon and needs to be able to give the Frogs a change of pace.

Josh Carraway, DE – Carraway had nine sacks in 2015 and should be even better in 2016. If Nebraska transfer Aaron Curry can give him more support from the other end position…..watch out!
