Seals coming to TCU

Former Roo expected to battle for starting QB spot


The TCU Horned Frogs spent the entirety of the 2023 football season looking for the heir apparent to Max Duggan, who quarterbacked them to the national championship game as a junior.

They still haven't found him.

Now, going into the 2024 campaign, former Weatherford Kangaroo and Vanderbilt Commodore Ken Seals has added himself to the mix of those vying for the job. Seals entered the transfer portal following his senior season in 2023 and will join the Horned Frogs as a graduate student.

"Blessed to announce I'm committed to TCU," Seals posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Chandler Morris started seven games for the Horned Frogs in 2023, posting a 4-3 record. However, a knee injury kept him out of five games in which they posted a 1-4 record.

Morris entered the transfer portal after the season.

During the 2023 season, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Seals played in nine games and started six for the Commodores (2-10). He was named the starting quarterback against Missouri to replace AJ Swann who suffered an injury.

He finished the season completing 98 out of 170 passing attempts for 1,122 yards and 11 touchdowns against four interceptions. In his college career, Seals passed for 

Seals played in and started nine games as a freshman, followed by starting the first six games of his sophomore season before getting injured. He did not see game action as a junior.

Seals became only the third true freshman quarterback to start a season opener in the Southeastern Conference since 1972. He also set a Vanderbilt freshman record with 1,928 passing yards and is only the third true freshman to throw for over 1,000 yards in a season for Vanderbilt. He passed for 12 TD opposite 10 interceptions.

In his entire career for the Commodores, Seals appeared in 28 games and started 22, throwing for 4,292 yards and 28 touchdowns with 22 interceptions. He completed 61 percent of his passes.

Seals also made news when he signed a name/image/likeness deal with the cryptocurrency company FTX. The company has also signed several high profile professional athletes to their brand, including NFL quarterback Trevor Lawrence and former NFL QB legend Tom Brady.

Seals grew up in Azle and attended Azle High School before transferring to Weatherford High School during his sophomore year making him ineligible for that season. He then led the Kangaroos to the postseason both as a junior and senior.

In his high school career, Seals completed a school-record of 5,714 passing yards and 53 passing touchdowns for Weatherford. He also had 187 carries with 712 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns.

Seals had numerous college offers, including Boston College, Cincinnati, Florida Atlantic, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana State, North Carolina State, Nevada, Princeton, Rutgers and University of Texas-El Paso.
