He's become a human highlight reel. Or, maybe, he has simply transformed into a human joystick.
Better yet: Jalen Reagor is simply that good.
The TCU sophomore continued his record-setting season Saturday to seemingly single-handedly — with the help of a stellar defensive effort against the sixth-best offense in the nation — carry the Horned Frogs to a 16th bowl appearance in 18 seasons under head coach Gary Patterson.
Above the records, Reagor told TCU Athletics and reporters after the game that becoming bowl-eligible was "real big" for the program.
"We're trying to make sure we send the seniors out the right way," said Reagor after he accounted for 233 all-purpose yards in the Horned Frogs the 31-24 victory Saturday at home against Oklahoma State. "Making the bowl game and extending the season to have an extra month with my brothers is great."
He added, "We are resilient, we persevered and now we are going bowling. This is nothing out of the ordinary. We came back to work Sunday and made sure we gave the seniors the best season. We're just trying to be one point better and hold them to one point less. The way it played out we scored a lot of points and got on a roll."
Reagor rushed for a career-high 121 yards and one touchdown on four carries, which included an 83-yard scamper with 13:47 to play in the third quarter to put TCU up, 21-3. He also caught a 6-yard touchdown pass with 1:09 to play in the first quarter for the first Horned Frogs touchdown of the afternoon and finished with 91 receiving yards on eight catches.
According to statistics compiled by TCU Athletics, the performance did a little more than punch the Horned Frogs ticket to a bowl, too.
Reagor now has 1,061 receiving yards on the season, making him just the third Horned Frog to break the 1,000-yard receiving plateau. He joins Josh Doctson (2014, 2015) and Reggie Harrell (2003) on that short list. The yardage mark also puts Reagor second behind the 1,327 receiving yards in a single season recorded by Doctson in 2015.
"That was a big goal for me," said Reagor of the century mark. "It was one of my goals at the beginning of the year to get 1,000 yards. To get it in a game like this it means the world. After the Alamo Bowl, my goal was to get 1,000 yards and to make a bigger impact than I did as a freshman. I want to win the Biletnikoff and continue to build this program and win."
The first-quarter touchdown moved Reagor alone atop the list of consecutive games with a scoring grab, breaking a tie with Doctson (2015). It was also the 17th of his career to tie him with Cory Rodgers (2003-05) and Mike Renfro (1974-77) for third place on TCU's all-time list.
Need more proof?
Reagor now has 104 career receptions in 26 games in which he has caught at least one pass in 25 of those contests. He has also pulled down a pass in 17 consecutive games, which is the longest active streak among TCU receivers.
Oh, and his 84-yard touchdown run was the sixth-longest in TCU history. It also spurred the play-by-play announcer, Tim Brando, to coin a new Reagor-esque catchphrase.
Still don't believe just how big of an impact Reagor has had on the Horned Frogs offense? FrogsOWar.com, the official TCU blog on SBNation, is now selling a "You're not gonna catch him" T-shirt in honor of Reagor's "incredible season and TCU's bowl berth."
He's simply that good, folks.
"The bottom line is he's a good player," Patterson told TCU Athletics after the win Saturday. "Four or five weeks ago he started to mature."
TCU safety Niko Small added, "That dude is a baller. I don't know how else to explain it. Some things you just can't teach, and he has the things you can't teach: speed, agility, vision and playmaking abilities. He has a switch and when he wants to turn it on, he turns it on."
