Trevone Boykin entered the spring atop the TCU quarterback depth chart and brings the ability to do a little bit of everything to the party – run, pass and receive. He’ll be counted on to be an impact player as the Horned Frogs continue to acclimate to their new surroundings in the Big 12.
Boykin came out of Mesquite, Texas as the No. 24 ranked dual threat quarterback in the nation in 2010. He was an honorable mention all-state selection as a senior after rushing for 1,799 yards and 30 touchdowns and adding 2,930 yards and 28 touchdowns through the air.
After redshirting during 2011, he got into the action in a big way in 2012, appearing in 12 games and starting the final nine. He earned some national all-freshman team honors after throwing for 2,054 yards and 15 touchdowns. He was also the team’s third-leading rusher with 417 yards and three scores.
Boykin started the first seven games of 2013 before finding himself pressed into running back and receiving duties for the rest of the season. Became the first player in TCU history, and the only player in the nation, to record a 100-yard rushing and receiving game along with a 200-yard passing game. In fact, he was just one of seven players in the nation to record a 100-yard rushing and passing game in 2013.
Enters 2014 as the presumptive starter and will need to throw for more than 1,198 yards and seven scores for the Horned Frogs to be competitive.
