TCU freshman Cameron Norrie’s run at the NCAA Championships ended on Saturday with a 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 loss in the quarterfinals to No. 9-ranked Quentin Monaghan of Notre Dame at the Hurd Tennis Center in Waco.
“Cameron played a good match,” coach David Roditi told Gofrogs.com. “We all knew it would be a hard-fought battle between two very competitive players. Quentin raised his energy level in the middle of the third set, got the break and we almost got it back.”
Norrie becomes the second freshman to earn All-America honors for TCU following David Pate, who was a singles and doubles All-American in 1981. Norrie went 28-11 in singles and won 12 of his final 13 matches this season.

Ford picks A&M
Former Oklahoma Sooners running back Keith Ford told 247Sports he will transfer to Texas A&M after making an unofficial visit Thursday.
Ford, who will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out next season, was suspended indefinitely by OU in March for academic and team rules violations.
He was Oklahoma’s top rusher and one of the Sooners’ top receivers last season before he broke his right leg in the third game against Tennessee and missed the next five games.
