247Sports just released their top 10 players in the Big 12. While names like Chuba Hubbard, Sam Ehlinger, and Tylan Wallace shouldn’t surprise anyone. They also had plenty of praise for the TCU defense.
The TCU defense was well represented. No. 10 S Ar’Darius Washington, No. 8 LB Garret Wallow, and No. 6 S Trevon Moehrig all came in ranked top 10. Washington and Moehrig were not only the best safety duo in the Big 12, they were the best in the country. Washington only allowed five catches all season. Moehrig was graded as the best safety in college football and the third-highest grade by PFF ever. Wallow was impressive as well. he led the Big 12 with 125 tackles and added in 18 tackles for loss.
While they may have missed out on the national praise last year, there is no denying how talented they are. TCU has a three-headed attack in 2020 and they could shock the country.
It is no secret that I am very high on TCU in 2020. 247Sports helps back that up. TCU leads the entire Big 12 with the most players on the top 10 list as well. With the addition of Zach Evans, the maturation of Max Duggan, and a defense that could become elite, the Horned Frogs are back.
Now Gary Patterson just has to put it all together and break out of the slump. While 2020 isn’t going to be the year that TCU wins a Big 12 title. However, they are going to bounce back and put the conference on notice.
