Henderson (Texas) three-star defensive back Trestan Ebner, a long time TCU commitment, has opened up his recruitment. The senior announced his decision on social media Friday morning.
This season for Henderson, Ebner eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving, starting both ways for the Class 4A power. A chance to play receiver could be one of the biggest reasons for the decommitment. The Frogs already have three highly thought of wide receivers in the 2017 class and were wanting Ebner to play in the secondary.
"Ebner projects best as a playmaking receiver who can line up wide or in the slot," said Scout.com recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks. "Ebner flashes great short-area burst to separate in a hurry. He's also a tough tackle in close quarters and can make defenders miss to gain yards after catch. Ebner is especially dangerous in the jet/fly game, where his running ability is showcased."
With a National Signing Day decision coming, TCU might not be out of it, but the odds of a player recommitting to a school after a decommitment are never good.
The news is even more troubling than usual for TCU, because Henderson teammate Lakendrick VanZandt is also committed to TCU.
At this point we are still waiting to see who might be making a play for Ebner. Baylor was a recent offeree.
