2014 Preview: White Keys Cornerback Position

Aug. 9, 2014


FORT WORTH, Texas -- GoFrogs.com continues its preview of the 2014 TCU football team with a look at the cornerbacks.

With the graduation of two-time All-American Jason Verrett, Kevin White (5-10, 174, Sr.) is now the veteran leader of the unit.

White received honorable-mention All-Big 12 honors from the conference coaches last season. He placed second on TCU with eight pass breakups and three interceptions while posting a team-best three fumble recoveries. He allowed just one touchdown pass on the season.

The 27 career starts by White rank as the most among active Horned Frogs.

Travoskey Garrett (6-1, 190, Jr.) entered fall camp behind White. Garrett played in four games last year after being sidelined his first two seasons due to injury.

Ranthony Texada (5-10, 160, RFr.), who redshirted last season, began fall drills in a No. 1 position opposite White.

Fellow 2013 redshirt Cyd Calvin (6-1, 175, RFr.) was No. 2 on the depth chart behind Texada when spring drills closed.

A pair of true freshmen in Torrance Mosley (5-10, 160, Fr.) and Nick Orr (5-10, 166, Fr.) will look to push for immediate playing time.

Corry O'Meally (6-0, 170, Jr.) also figures prominently in the mix. He was a second-team NJCAA All-American last season at Ellsworth Community in Iowa. The Miami, Fla., native intercepted three passes with a team-best nine pass breakups as a sophomore.

BY THE NUMBERS:

1 - Touchdown passes allowed by Kevin White last season

2 - Current Horned Frogs (Kolby Listenbee, Steve Wesley) coached by TCU cornerbacks coach Kenny Perry during his time as head coach at Arlington Bowie High School

4 - TCU cornerbacks (Rafael Priest, Jason Teague, Greg McCoy, Jason Verrett) in the last five seasons to either be drafted or sign NFL free-agent contracts

5 - Blocked field goals by Ranthony Texada during his senior year at Frisco Centennial High School

27 - Career starts by Kevin White, the most among active Horned Frogs
