Jayhawks land commitment from 4-star Gardner-Edgerton running back Traevohn Wrench
Although March tends to be all and only about basketball around these parts, there is some decent-sized football news from Allen Fieldhouse today.
I just learned that Gardner-Edgerton running back Traevohn Wrench is in the building today and has orally committed to the Jayhawks.
Wrench, a junior and four-star prospect according to Rivals.com, was one of the top backs in the state of Kansas last season.
During a four-game stretch late in the 2012 season the 6-foot, 191-pound bruiser ran for 1,277 yards and 17 touchdowns, sometimes logging as many as 40 or 50 carries in a single game.
Here's the story our prep writer Benton Smith did on Wrench in advance of GEHS's meeting with Lawrence High in the first round of the Class 6A playoffs last fall.
We'll have more on the commitment in the near future. This is a big pick-up for the Jayhawks, as Wrench would come in at a time when the Jayhawks would be losing James Sims and Taylor Cox to graduation.
