GoFrogs: TCU Duo Named Preseason All-Americans

FORT WORTH -- TCU wide receiver Quentin Johnston and cornerback Tre'Vius Hodges-Tomlinson have been named Preseason All-Americans by Phil Steele.

Johnston is a second-team selection with Hodges-Tomlinson on the third team.

Johnston was First-Team All-Big 12 last season. The junior from Temple, Texas, led the Horned Frogs in receiving yards (634), yards per reception (19.2) and touchdown catches (six) while placing second in receptions (33). He topped 100 yards receiving on three occasions, all in his final five games. He had a career day at Oklahoma with seven receptions for 185 yards and three touchdowns, including the No. 2 Collegiate Play of the Year on ESPN's You Got Mossed. The 185 yards receiving were the most by a Horned Frog since Taj Williams had 210 versus Oklahoma in 2016. He was also the first Horned Frog with three touchdown catches in a game since KaVontae Turpin had four against Texas in 2015. Johnston had five catches for 142 yards and a touchdown in the 30-28 win over Baylor.

Hodges-Tomlinson is a two-time First-Team All-Big 12 recipient and a 2020 All-American by the Associated Press and Pro Football Focus. Despite teams consistently throwing away from him last season, Hodges-Tomlinson had a team-best seven pass breakups and two forced fumbles. He also tied for the TCU lead with two interceptions, including one returned 29 yards for a touchdown in a win at Texas Tech which helped him earn Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week honors. He was sixth on TCU in 2021 with 42 stops, more than his first two years combined (34). Exclusively a cornerback in his TCU career, he moved to safety midway through the Texas game when the Horned Frogs became thin at the position. He responded with a career-high 10 tackles while forcing a fumble.
