It’s decommitment season in college football recruiting. With coaches leaving, and the early signing period approaching, more recruits will be decommitting in the next two weeks or so than any other time of the season. A lot of it is because of the aforementioned early signing period. With schools putting the final touches on their classes, there could be some space opening at some schools, but in most cases, decommitments will be coming from a recruit realizing that his choice truly matters, and when someone isn’t confident in their choice, they almost always back out. That’s what happened today, as Ta’Zhawn Henry decommitted from TCU.

THE HENRY FILE
Henry’s departure gives TCU 19 commitments in their 2018 class, and only one running back in Taye Barber, though he’s more of an athlete and could end up in the slot or at h-back. That means TCU has a spot to fill with a true running back in their class, and the main names I’ve heard are Louisiana product Tony St. Julian and Mississippi State commit Fabian Franklin, both of whom have been in consistently contact with TCU recently.
Ultimately, this one came down to a little bit of TCU looking elsewhere and Henry not being convinced that TCU is where he wants to go. His home in Houston is nearly four hours from TCU, and with as many offers as Henry has, there’s no real reason for him to not look around at this point if he’s not convinced. Iowa State, Baylor, Houston, Arizona and Cal will all be closely involved until the end in this one.
