TCU News: “Athletically, Reagor will have few peers in the 2020 NFL draft class.”

Jalen Reagor makes the Freaks list, and his numbers are turning heads.

Reagor is THAT DUDE. I mean… 4.29 40? That would have been the best time at the NFL Combine this year! (also, big ouch with the Kansas crack, Bruce).

He led the conference in percentage of his team’s receptions at 30.1 (72-of-239). The 5-11, 195-pound junior clocked a blazing 4.29 40, and his power numbers are also impressive: a 620-pound squat, a 380-pound bench and a 380-pound clean.

Well, duh.

“I have a complete open mind. Obviously, Alex Delton has played the most football out of everybody that we have here. But I was really happy with our freshmen. Justin Rogers is healthier, probably not completely. Mike Collins didn’t go through the spring, so his competition will start here in the fall. But I think the quarterback position is in better position than we were a year ago.

If the Frogs get competent QB play, everyone will be talking about Reag by November.

“Athletically, Reagor will have few peers in the 2020 NFL draft class. He’s a true one-stepper — he gets to full speed instantly — and has fluid change-of-direction skills and flexibility. He doesn’t have to gear down before making sharp cuts. He’s a stud in the open field and once he gets behind the defense, he’s gone.”

Wimbledon? U.S. Open? French Open? TCU All-American has sights set on grand stages | The Star-Telegram

Rybakov is trying to follow in the footsteps of another former Frog, Cameron Norrie, who is blazing his way up the world rankings.

Last week, Rybakov played in a tournament in Orlando, Florida with a chance to earn a spot in a U.S. Open qualifier, but lost in the finals.

Still, those who know Rybakov best are confident in his abilities and drive to reach the highest level, starting with TCU assistant coach Devin Bowen.

“What sets Alex apart from most players is his discipline,” said Bowen, who spent 12 years as a professional in the ATP following a standout college career at TCU.

“Alex is a great athlete but there are so many amazing tennis players on tour, it is his work ethic and attitude that will give him a huge edge in his career.”
