  Through the first seven practices of fall camp, TCU has stuck to its process of rotating quarterbacks with the first-team offense everyday. That changed Wednesday when Chandler Morris took snaps with the first-team offense in back-to-back days. Morris has also been the primary first-team quarterback in the installation part of practice that occurs before warmups. Head coach Sonny Dykes said he hoped to see some separation this week between Morris and senior quarterback Max Duggan. The decision to let Morris take all of the first-team reps in the open media portion seems like a significant development as the Horned Frogs get deeper into fall camp.

Morris capped the first-team series with a nice completion to tight end Geor'Quarius Spivey near the endzone. Dykes downplayed the decision to let Morris lead the first-team offense in consecutive days. "I don't think so," Dykes said when asked if it was an indication he was close to making a decision. "I wasn't even aware, I think it's just we're rolling through the stuff and getting guys reps. I think we'll have to start to narrow some stuff down pretty quickly. I don't think that's any indication of anything." - Fort Worth Star

  Senior linebacker Marcel Brooks has had quite the journey. From a five-star recruit to promising freshman at LSU to having to switch positions at TCU. Brooks has been through it all. The former blue chip recruit is back at linebacker and looks to have added on some much needed weight to his frame. Brooks is listed at 194 pounds on the roster, but could be closer to 200 after committing to the strength and conditioning plan. Brooks ran with the second team during 11-on-11 and brought Blair Conwright down for a nice tackle. - Fort Worth Star

  When it comes to the looming quarterback competition, TCU head coach Sonny Dykes has a clear vision for what he wants from the winner. "I always thought that playing quarterback is like playing point guard. You're distributing the ball to other guys and your job is to make them look really good. The guy that makes everybody look the best is typically the best player," said Dykes, the first-year coach who opens camp next week. There are currently five quarterbacks on the roster with Max Duggan and Chandler Morris expected to be the primary contenders for the job. All of them, including redshirt freshman Sam Jackson, will be starting with a clean slate as Dykes searches for his field general. "I'm not concerned at all with the politics of any of it. I don't care who the starting quarterback was in the past, I don't care who was the highest-rated guy is, I don't care who has the highest ceiling," Dykes said. "I don't care about any of that, I care about who gives us the best chance to win." There many factors Dykes will consider in that regard like ball security and decision-making.

However, the most important might be confidence. "Tom Brady is Tom Brady because he can walk in the huddle and everybody in the huddle believes this guy is going to figure out a way to help us to win this ball game. That's what you're looking for, a guy that commands everybody's respect. Somebody that everybody believes in," Dykes said. Whoever emerges as the winner will be in the line to be the latest quarterback to thrive under Dykes. His track record is well known as he coached No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff and fellow NFL quarterback Davis Webb at California. - Fort Worth Star

  2022 PRESEASON RAY GUY WATCHLIST: Jordy Sandy - TCU,...Another graduate of the ProKick program in Australia, Sandy (6-3, 216) was an All-Big 12 selection in 2020. His career-high 43.3-yard average last season was the best by a Horned Frog since Ethan Perry's 44.5 mark in 2012. Thirteen of Sandy's 43 punts went inside the 20, including six inside the 10, with just three touchbacks. Opponents were held to 10 punt return yards on the season. He averaged 50.4 yards on five punts in the 34-32 win over Cal. Included in that effort was a 64-yard punt, TCU's longest since 2014. He also had a 62-yard punt downed at the 1-yard line versus Texas, one of his eight punts of at least 50 yards on the year. His love for the game originated in his hometown of Victoria, Australia, where he played Australian rules football, similar to rugby. He was trained for American football punting in Australia's ProKick program, rated No. 1 in the country and was offered a scholarship by TCU. - TCU Football
