Three-year starting running back Ed Wesley has decided to leave the TCU program due to family reasons.

TCU Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson has confirmed in an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that running back Ed Wesley has left the school for family reasons. Wesley was going to leave after the 2011 season and enter the the NFL Draft to assist his ailing mother, but at the time he decided to return to TCU.

This puts a dent in TCU's running back depth as Wesley was second on the team in rushing with 726 yards and he also had six touchdowns. Wesley also was a semi-finalist for the Doak Walker Award back in 2010. Luckily TCU is deep at running back and they still have Matthew Tucker who rushed for 702 yards and Waymon James led the tea in rushing with 875 yards.

During his three-year TCU career, Wesley rushed for 2,442 yards and scored 21 touchdowns. He also caught 22 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns.
