Many people are expecting TCU’s 2018 class to be one of the best in school history, and there is no reason to believe otherwise right now. The Horned Frogs landed another highly ranked three-star recruit late last nigh in, Trevon Moehrig-Woodard. Moehrig-Woodard is the fifth player to join the Horned Frogs 2018 class, and helps push the class to the 26th best in the country, and 3rd best in the conference.

THE MOEHRIG-WOODARD FILE
|Name||Hometown||Position||Position Rank||Star Rating|

Moehrig-Woodard’s commitment is a huge one for coach Gary Patterson and Co. He is a top 500 player overall, and is one of the fastest rising prospects in the entire country. He also helps fill a huge need for TCU: He is a defensive back with great skills in coverage. The Horned Frogs struggled greatly last season in defending the pass, and the need for new players in the defensive backfield is obvious. Moehrig-Woodard is the second defensive back in the class, but he won’t be the last.

Congradulating Moehrig-Woodward is Atanza Vongor, a 4-star safety, and the other currently committed defensive back. I don’t imagine this will be the last time we see these two interact, as they both want to act as leaders for the rest of the class.
If you were hoping for more four-stars, don’t let the star rating fool you, Trevon is one of the best defensive backs in the country, and I can all but guarantee that he’ll be a four-star prospect by the end of his senior season. To put t simply, this kid is a stud, and if it wasn’t for a lack of exposure, he’d be one of the top players in the country.
Part of what makes Moerhig-Woodard so exciting is his combination of size and athleticism. He’s 6-foot-2, and reportedly runs a 4.49 40 time, which, if you’re wondering, is very, very fast for someone with his size. He’s essentially a perfect fit for Gary Patterson’s defense, because of his rare combination of size and speed, paired with his aggressiveness and ability to tackle. His coverage is solid, though he depends on his size a bit too much, but he should be a great corner back or safety in Fort Worth in a few years.
