“Texas Christian University is aware that one of its students was recently arrested for a reported domestic situation,” TCU said in a statement. “The university takes these types of reports very seriously and is continuing to gather information to determine next steps. TCU expects its students to behave in an ethical manner, abide by campus policies and adhere to state and federal law.

“The student also may face a charge of violating the University Code of Student Conduct, the results of which are independent and separate from any legal charges.”

The Horned Frogs have not announced a suspension for Turpin at this time. However, he may be facing one in the future.

Turpin is a senior on the football team. In seven games, he has 29 receptions for 410 yards and three touchdowns. He also has four carries for 32 yards.

He has 12 kickoff returns for 312 yards and a touchdown. He also has nine punt returns for 175 yards and another touchdown.

He just had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday.

Turpin is presently second in the Big 12 Conference in all-purpose yards per game. He is averaging 132.7 yards per contest.
