Dallas Colleges: Marshall Newhouse
offensive tackle Nic Richmond is headed to the San Diego Chargers.
When combined with draft picks Jerry Hughes (first round, Indianapolis Colts), Daryl Washington (second round, Arizona Cardinals) and Marshall Newhouse (fifth round, Green Bay Packers), TCU will have six players from its 2009 team in NFL camps this summer.
In his nine seasons as TCU's head coach, Gary Patterson has had 47 players sign NFL contracts.
Gresham, from Corpus Christi, is the latest addition to that group (he accepted his invitation Friday) and probably the least known. He's been the short and long snapper in every game the last three seasons. He started his career at Oklahoma, but transferred to TCU. He was a walk-on before earning a scholarship.
TCU already has a recent long snapper in the NFL in Jared Retkofsky, who just finished his second season with the Steelers. He attended the NFL combine in 2007.
Newhouse has started all but one game for TCU over the last three seasons in becoming a critical member of the Frogs' offensive line.
Newhouse isn't the only Frog playing in some of these postseason games. Jerry Hughes and Daryl Washington are playing in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 30.
