TCU-ex Boykin indicted in assault before Alamo Bowl

Former TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has been indicted on a charge of assault with bodily injury in a brawl outside a bar that led to a suspension for his final college game in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio last season.

Bexar County court records show Boykin, who signed with Seattle after going undrafted in April, is set for arraignment Aug. 1. That’s two days after the Seahawks open training camp in Renton, Wash.

Boykin originally faced a felony charge of assaulting a police officer in the fight outside a downtown bar two days before the Horned Frogs beat Oregon in the Alamo Bowl. A spokeswoman for Bexar County prosecutors didn’t return messages seeking comment.

Boykin, a senior from West Mesquite, was a top college player, having finished in the top 10 in the Heisman Trophy voting twice. After becoming TCU’s full-time quarterback in 2014, he was 22-2 and has set school records for passing yards and touchdowns.
