TCU lost a member of their highly regarded class of 2018 Sunday night, as highly regarded three star all purpose back Ta’Zhawn Henry made the decision to reopen his recruitment.
The talented runner out of Houston Lamar had been pledged to the Horned Frogs since August, choosing TCU over Iowa State, and held offers from Arizona, Baylor, Houston, and 20 other schools. He had been an active recruiter for TCU on twitter in the months since he made his initial decision.
Henry rushed for over 1300 yards each of the past two seasons for Lamar, scoring 35 times in the process. At 5’8” and 166 pounds he isn’t the biggest back, but has good speed (4.65 40) and is very shifty in space.
The Frogs now have 19 commits in the class, one that is ranked in the top 20 nationally and third in the Big 12 (behind Texas and Oklahoma). Henry was the only running back committed in the class, though Taye Barber, who is classified as an athlete, could be utilized in that role some in Fort Worth. The coaching staff has been after several big name backs, and Henry’s de-commitment could mean someone else has pledged. That being said, he has not ruled out the Horned Frogs, though it is unlikely he ends up signing with them at this point. If you would like to know who they may be targeting, check out Jamie’s post from earlier this week. If you want to know what the rest of the class looks like, we have that for you, too.
We wish Ta’Zhawn all the best and hope he finds the right fit for his collegiate career.
