Max Duggan, who rose from No. 2 quarterback on TCU’s depth chart before the 2022 season to leading the Horned Frogs to the college football playoffs, announced Sunday that he will enter the 2023 NFL Draft.
Duggan passed for 3,321 yards with 30 touchdowns and 4 interceptions for a 64.9% completion percentage, while rushing for 404 yards and 6 touchdowns. The quarterback was his second in 2022 Heisman Trophy voting, behind USC’s Caleb Williams.
TCU and Duggan had an improbable run to the college football playoffs in head coach Sonny Dykes’ first year at Fort Worth. The Horned Frogs were undefeated in the regular season before losing to Kansas State in the Big 12 Championship Game.
Still, the College Football Playoffs Commission ranked TCU third of the top four teams in the playoffs, joining No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Michigan and No. 4 Ohio State. TCU said he will face Michigan in the Fiesta Bowl on December 31st.

If TCU beats Michigan, Duggan will meet Horned Toads in the playoff semifinals and possibly the Jan. 9 national championship game. However, he left for the NFL as soon as his TCU run ended, joining the likes of Ohio State’s CJ Stroud, Alabama’s Bryce Young, and Kentucky’s Will Levis, among other talents in the 2023 NFL Draft.
