4-Star Running Back Trayveon Williams De-commits from TCU

TCU lost its second 4-star commit since last week.

On Monday night, four-star runningback Trayveon Williams announced on Twitter that he has de-committed from TCU. 

The C.E. King Panther tweeted that he decided to open his recruitment back up after speaking with his parents. He thanked TCU's coaching staff for his offer and Frog fans for their support.

As the Horned Frog Insider reported before, it seemed he could bail from the 2016 class after Williams visted Texas A&M last weekend for the Aggies game against South Carolina. We believe that Texas A&M is his leader. 

Last Monday, four-star wide receiver prospect Courtney Lark de-commited from the Frogs, due to grade issues. Lark was one of many wide receivers in the 2016 class; Williams is the lone runningback. 

Now with Williams gone from the 2016 class, it's likely that TCU's coaching staff will persue more options at running back since the Frogs will only have two experienced tailbacks, Trevorris Johnson and Kyle Hicks, returning to next years squad, and starter Aaron Green graduating.

William's de-committment leaves TCU with 15 verbal commits in its 2016 recruiting class.
