The class of 2018 is shaping up to be TCU’s best yet, and Wednesday night’s verbal commit only served to improve it. Smithson Valley junior cornerback Trevon Moehrig-Woodard, considered a four star recruit by some services, announced his intentions to be a Horned Frog via twitter:
Moehrig-Woodard has excellent size for his position, clocking in at 6’2” and 190 pounds. He has an impressive offer list, choosing the Frogs over 18 other schools, including Texas A&M, Georgia, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, Stanford, and Baylor. A fast riser on the circuit, Trevon was present at Saturday’s Spring Game, and came away impressed enough to commit just a few days later. Rated as a top 40 corner and top 60 player in state, Moehrig-Woodard is one of the best players in the state according to 247, and is likely to see his stock rise with a solid senior campaign. Though he doesn’t play in a big city - Smithson Valley is in Spring Branch, TX - he has made a name for himself with his aggressive play, versatility, and willingness to go make a play on either side of the ball (he plays wide receiver as well). A big, physical player, Trevon is a perfect fit in Gary Patterson’s defense, and will make a wicked 1-2 punch with fellow class of 18 defensive back Atanza Vongor. Both players are capable at lining up at corner or safety, and have the strength to attack the backfield as well as the speed (4.49 40) to be an exceptional cover guy. He has good footwork and exceptional feel for the game - the way he reads and diagnoses plays at the line is pretty impressive for a young guy. And, if he gets the ball in his hands - whether via turnover or as a special teams contributor, he is capable of taking it all the way home, showing a variety of moves and the willingness to run opponents over.
Moerig-Woodard is the fifth commit for the class of 2018, joining Vongor and Ochaun Mathis on the defensive side of the ball. While it goes without saying that big name programs won’t stop calling Trevon, he seems firm in his commitment to TCU at this time. Check out his highlights below, and welcome Trevon to the Frog Fam!
