Now, he's one of the fastest rising prospects in the state.
Now rated as a four-star and nation's No. 32 cornerback prospect, Mbanasor is humbled by the recent attention he's received on the recruiting front. He's not about to stop working hard at being the best.
"I'm still as humble and hungry for success as I was before," he said. "The grind doesn't stop to be honest. I've been blessed with a couple opportunities. I'll work endlessly to be the best."
Despite the new interest, Mbanasor remains solid in his commitment to TCU. In fact, he attended his second TCU junior day in three weeks last weekend. The visit with his parents was another good experience.
"It was good, my parents had a good time," he said. "They were pleased with what they saw."
While on the visit, Mbanasor had a chance to meet with fellow commitments from TCU's 2015 class.
"They were pretty good kids, smart and talented football minded athletes," he said.
As for other top uncommitted prospects who were in town?
"I just asked them what their top schools were," he said.
