Kavontae Turpin is Electric

Speed. Agility. Big play ability. All of these words describe TCU’s offense under Gary Patterson, and led by Trevone Boykin the last few years. However, all of these words also perfectly match with Kavontae Turpin. The 5-9, 153 lbs, rising Sophomore is an absolute joy to watch. As a Freshman, Turpin managed 45 receptions for 649 yards and 8 TD. He was also brilliant in the return game, where he was a Freshman All-American, and added another TD. What stands about Turpin is not the stats he put up, it is the way in which he put up those stats. KT weaves through defenses with ease, juking opponents left and right, while blazing straight ahead. With Texas A&M transfer, Kenny Hill, the presumed starter, TCU’s offense should be able to be dynamic once again. For a short time with the Aggies, “Kenny Trill” appeared to be a star in the making, and a change in scenery should help him reach that potential. There are some college players that become must see television, every time they step on to the field. Denard Robinson. Reggie Bush. Darren Sproles. I would not be shocked if Kavontae Turpin soon enters this category. Watch out, Big 12. Watch out, NCAA. Kavontae Turpin is coming, and you should remember the name.
