TCU's offensive line took a surprising hit on Thursday, as junior right tackle Tayo Fabuluje left the team for personal reasons, Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Fabuluje's exit makes a thin position even thinner right before the start of fall camp. The Horned Frogs were set to return only three starting offensive linemen, but the loss of Fabuluje leaves senior center Eric Tausch and sophomore tackle Aviante Collin as the only players coming back from last year's starting unit. Sophomore Halapoulivaati Vaitai and senior James Dunbar will likely compete to replace Fabuluje.

Fabuluje started 12 games last season, including 10 at left tackle, but had been listed as the starting right tackle on TCU's recent depth chart. Fabuluje originally signed with BYU in 2010 before transferring to Fort Worth prior to the 2011 season, which he sat out due to NCAA transfer rules. He earned All-Big 12 honorable mention honors in 2012.

TCU opens the season against LSU in Arlington, Texas on Aug. 31.
