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, 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.

Great get at a position that needed more depth for next season.

I assume you mean the 2014 season? He's a junior in high school this year. It's a great get, or more like a reload to replace Sims.

I should've said the 2014 season. Obviously got caught looking ahead there.

Reggie Mitchell is the man! This guy is his ideal RB, just like Rashard Mendenhall was. He will be All-Conference and maybe All-American under Mitchell.

Great get!

Boom! This is the way you win. You follow a solid recruiting class with the start of an even better one. My prediction: KU has a top-20 recruiting class next year.

This is a HUGE get for KU!!

Let's hope this is just the beginning of a long line of HUGE gets for KU!

Welcome to Jayhawk Nation Traevohn!!

Our rb depth will be low with Pierson being a senior when he comes. I presume Bourbon has been moved to fullback so this is a huge get. Charlie is starting strong! This could be a class high in high school kids to develop while sprinkling in a few juco players.i always recalled he could recruit and with a year under his belt he's still proving to be good. Now lets win next season!

The safety from the Dallas area has already been switched to RB, Collin Spencer. He's fast.
