TCU running back Ed Wesley will leave TCU because of family reasons.Waymon James and Matthew Tucker will pick up the slack for the Frogs, and Nebraska transfer Aaron Green will be ready to go in 2013, but losing James is still a big gut punch. The senior was a leader, and accounted for 120 carries in 2011. James and Tucker will have to handle more of the load.
Coach Gary Patterson confirmed Wesley's exit, which leaves the Frogs with two 700-yard rushers entering fall camp in August.
Wesley was second on the team with 726 yards and six touchdowns in 2011. The Irving, Texas native was the Mountain West Conference freshman of the year in 2009 and earned all-conference honors in 2010. He was a semifinalist for the Doak Walker Award as the nation's top running back and would have been a senior in 2012.
