Less than a week after TCU received the commitment from Chazten Gonzales, they went back for another QB to be the 10th member of their 2011 recruiting class, landing West Mesquite's Trevone Boykin on June 17th.
Boykin, listed at 6'1" 205lbs with a 4.5 forty time, is listed by Rivals as the #23 dual-threat QB in the country. As a senior, he led West Mesquite to an 8-2 regular season and then two playoff wins throwing for 2,930 yards and 28 TDs and adding another 1,799 yards and 30 TDs on the ground. Let that sink in...he accounted for about 364 total yards and 4 and a half touchdowns every game. How do you score a half a touchdown? I don't know, I'm not Trevone Boykin. For his career, he accounted for over 9,000 total yards and 100 TDs.
As was the case with Sam Carter last year and the other two QBs in this class (Dominic Merka and Gonzales), Boykin could very well end up leading the Frogs' offense in the coming years from behind center but is athletic enough to impact the team from any number of positions. Watch:
