V Wells was recently featured on TCU’s Athletics Blog!
Where are they now? Although his son, Vernon Wells, III, might be more famous right now as a three-time All-Star currently with the Los Angeles Angels, don’t forget that Vernon Wells, Jr. was a standout wide receiver for the Horned Frogs in the mid-1970s. His 204 yards receiving on 10 receptions against Tennessee in 1976 still ranks third all-time at TCU. He currently owns V. WELLS SPORTS ART (vwellsart.com) in Haltom City, Texas. After 35 years of painting pro athletes, he is considered the most commissioned artist ever for ballplayers.
