The Frogs knew they needed to get bigger in the defensive backfield, and with the signing of Trevon Moehrig-Woodard today, they did just that.
The 6’2” defensive back hails from Smithson Valley High School in Spring Branch, Texas, where he had seven career interceptions - returning two for scores - as well as starring in the return game (eight total touchdowns across two seasons).
His size is a huge advantage defensively, but it’s his speed that makes him such a versatile weapon overall. Once the ball is in his hands - as a returner, a running back, a receiver, or on a pick - he’s incredibly hard to catch and tougher to bring down. He also packs a big wallop in coverage, and lays the lumber in a way reminiscent of Derrick Kindred.
Rated as high as a four-star recruit, Trevon Moehrig-Woodard is ranked as the No. 4 cornerback in Texas and No. 19 in the country. He is the No. 23 overall player in Texas and No. 193 nationally, and chose the Frogs over 18 other offers, including Georgia, Stanford, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Baylor, and Texas A&M.
