HFB.com Countdown of TCU Impact Players #3

HornedFrogBlitz.com continues our countdown of TCU impact players for the upcoming season.

TCU 2012 Top Impact Players

With the start of the 2012 season just days away when the Frogs report to camp on August 6th, HFB.com takes a look at the top 11 impact players that are vital to the Frogs success in their inaugural season in the Big 12.

In at #3 on the list is junior runningback Waymon James. Since we first saw him as a senior at Sherman, Frog fans couldn't wait to see him making big plays for their team. 2011 was just the start.

#4 Waymon James

JAMES PROFILE
Position: WR
Class: Junior
Ht: 5-8 | Wt: 203

What makes James an impact player?
We all knew that when they signed the dotted line on signing day, the 2011 class was going to be special, especially on offense. Casey Pachall made his mark last year, Josh Boyce has for two years and the other highly anticipated coup of the class, James, made his mark in 2011. And it's just the beginning. James averaged an amazing 7.2 yards per carry last year and he'll be the key back carrying the ball in 2012 with Ed Wesley off to the NFL. A majority of Frog fans have wondered why James hasn't received more carries, well, they'll get to see plenty of him in 2012 and he has all the tools to become the Frogs first 1,000 rusher since Robert Merrill accomplished the feat in 2003. The Frogs have had nine players rush for 1,000 yards in school history, James should be the tenth.
