TCU athletes are on the move this month, as three of Gary Patterson defensive stalwarts will head to the NFL Combine while a trio of men’s basketball players announced their intent to transfer.

Seniors Ben Banogu, Ty Summers, and L.J. Collier were all invited to Indianapolis for the annual combine, which gives players a chance to showcase their skills in front of NFL coaches, scouts and general managers.

The combine will be held from Feb. 26 to March 4.

Banogu and Collier will also participate in the Reese’s Senior Bowl later this month in Mobile, Alabama. The senior bowl is an exhibition game featuring the top seniors in the nation facing off in front of fans and NFL scouts. The game will be on January 26 with kickoff set for 1:30 p.m.

Three players to leave men’s basketball program

Angus McWilliam, Kaden Archie, and Yuat Alok have all announced their intent to transfer, according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.

All three had seen limited minutes so far this season, but their departures hamper the teams depth, especially in the post.

Alok was the nation’s #1 junior college prospect last season while Archie was the third highest recruit in the state of Texas.

The team returns to the court on Saturday when they face No. 23 Oklahoma.
