TCU has had some success in the transfer portal landing some big-time names and also, unfortunately, had some good talent leave as well. Losing some top names on the offensive side of the ball and a few other positions. We go into depth on the players transferring in from the portal and who transferred out.
Shadrach Banks, LB, Texas A&M
TCU lands one monster of a player in former North Shore standout Shadrack Banks. Originally committed to Texas A&M, Shadrach entered the transfer portal just 4 months into being enrolled at the college station.The formerly decorated high school standout who played on the offensive side of the ball at receiver will be taking his talents on the defensive side and has added more mass to his fame because of that. He has massive amounts of talents and will no doubt be a productive player for TCU

Obinna Eze, OT, Memphis
TCU landed a big 6’6″ offensive tackle that will contribute right away from the University of Memphis. Eze was a four-star prospect coming out of high school in Nashville, Tennessee for Davidson Academy. The former tiger was also a starter at Memphis and played all 14 games for the Tigers in 2020. He secured the starting left tackle spot for TCU after a strong showcasing during the spring camp.

TJ Carter, DB, Memphis
TCU landed another player from the University of Memphis in star defensive back TJ Carter. Carter was a three-star prospect in high school and very highly recruited. He shoed he could lock down the best of receivers and cover the entire field with his terrific speed and agility. As a four-year starter for the tigers, Carter compiled 187 tackles, 7 interceptions, and 4 fumbles recoveries. He will be competing for the starting spot going into this season. But he brings a ball-hawking presence with a relentless motor and purist to the ball.
Darwin Barlow, RB,USC
The star running back took his talents to Southern California to okay for the Trojans. Barlow will be sorely missed by the frogs because he was a strong contributor on offense. The Trojans get an explosive back who can make big plays look routine. He’s got some good lateral speed and can make some nice moves out in space to make defenders pay.

Atanza Vongor, S/DB, TBD
Former four-star DB going out of Garland was a hard-hitting DB who could cover the run just as well as the pass. He just didn’t get started on the right foot at TCU as a true injury bug hit him as he tore his ACL at his first camp at TCU. Where ever he lands they are receiving a hard-hitting DB who isn’t afraid to come downhill and lay down the lumber. Vongor also shows he can cover against the pass very well too.
