Jamie Dixon on Ernest Udeh Injury: ‘It’s All Up to Him Now’

TCU head coach Jamie Dixon.

The TCU Hornes Frogs could be without a key player on Saturday vs. Cincinnati, with sophomore center Ernest Udeh Jr. dealing with a leg injury.

Udeh Jr. went down awkwardly in the Horned Frogs 75-72 win over Kansas State and is questionable to suit up against Cincinnati.


Dixon updated media members on Thursday about Udeh’s health ahead of the Cincinnati game, saying, “It’s all up to him now.”

Udeh has been a solid player for the Horned Frogs this season, averaging 4.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game on 60.7% shooting from the field in his second season of college basketball.

Coming out of high school, Udeh was listed as a four-star prospect by the 247Sports index and checked in as the nation’s 32nd-ranked prospect. He also checked in as the fourth-ranked center in his class and the seventh-ranked player in the state of Florida.

Udeh’s biggest game of the season came against Texas A&M Commerce on January 1st, where he recorded 13 points, 18 rebounds, and three blocks.

While Udeh’s status for Saturday’s game remains up in the air, the team will take the court with or without their starting center on Saturday, February 24th, at 2:00 PM CT.
