Ronnie Baker, a senior TCU track and field star and the defending NCAA champion in the 60-meters, took home the Big XII indoor title in that race with a school record time of 6.51 seconds.
That time makes him the 8th fastest man in NCAA history, and is the 2nd-fastest time run in the world this year.
His run was captured on camera here:

While former TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson is no longer playing in the purple and white, he had a stellar day at the NFL Combine.
The consensus first-team All-American for 2015 clocked a 4.5-second 40-yard dash, which was a good number for him, as he’s generally considered a possession receiver rather than a speed target.
He also had an impressive mark in the standing long jump, with a 10’11” leap.
It was his performance in the catching drills that really caught the eye of the scouts, however, as Doctson showed off his elite hands with highlight-reel catches like this one:
