Jamie Dixon and the TCU Horned Frogs have landed Trey Tennyson over fellow finalists BYU and Western Kentucky. The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi transfer guard announced his decision Tuesday on Twitter, confirming earlier reports of the move.
Tennyson is a proven commodity at the collegiate level, averaging more than 12.0 points per game each of the last two seasons in south Texas. That’s while shooting it at over a 40% clip overall and not too far from a 40% clip from the outside.
This past season, Tennyson averaged 15.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game for the Islanders. He hit a career-best 43.7% of his shots, including 40.2% from 3-point range.
Both years in Corpus Christi, Tennyson was a starter on teams that won the Southland Conference Tournament and qualified for the NCAA Tournament in the process. So, not only does he have the aforementioned college experience, but he has it in the Big Dance as well.
Before he played at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Tennyson also spent a year at Central Connecticut, then at Ranger (Texas) College. In the former of those, he averaged 4.4 points and 1.0 rebounds per game.
Tennyson is a Mansfield, Texas, native and joins guard Jameer Nelson Jr. and center Essam Mostafa as additions in the TCU transfer class. Dixon’s Horned Frogs finished with a 22-13 record and NCAA Tournament second round exit in the 2022-23 season.
