Three days after TCU fell to Utah State in the first round of the NCAA tournament, Micah Peavy announced he is entering the transfer portal while also putting his name in for the upcoming NBA draft. A day later, JaKobe Coles followed suit.

Peavy started his collegiate basketball career at Texas Tech for the 2020-21 season and played 25 of their 29 total games. As a Red Raider, he averaged 5.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. Texas Tech appeared in the 2021 NCAA tournament, defeating Utah State in the first round where Peavy recorded seven points and two steals. He averaged a 45.1 shooting percentage from the field.

After his freshman season, Peavy transferred to TCU and played as a Horned Frog for three years. He appeared in over 90% of games throughout his time at TCU and averaged 8.1 points per game.

The 6-8 guard played in 64 of his 69 games throughout his sophomore and junior season. He averaged 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game.

Coles’ transfer announcement was another shock to the TCU basketball community as he played a pivotal role in TCU’s bench performance.

Starting his collegiate career at Butler University, Coles sustained a season-ending injury and only played in six games before transferring to TCU for his freshman season with injury eligibility. Coles played in all 34 games during the 2021-2022 season, averaging 2.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 8.6 minutes per game.

Moving into his sophomore season as a Horned Frog, Coles averaged four times the amount of points he did in the previous season at 8.6 per game. In TCU’s match against Jackson State University on Dec. 6 2022, Coles recorded his season-high 21 points shooting seven of 11 from the field and draining three of five from behind the arc.

Coles tied his season and TCU-career high points of 21 this past season against the University of Omaha on Nov. 9 2023. He played in 31 games in the 2023-24 season. He averaged 10 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. Coles led the Frogs in three-point shooting percentage with 42.2%.

Peavy and Coles have yet to announce where they will transfer to. Their contributions and dedication to TCU men’s basketball will always be remembered.
