NCF On The Trail: DeMonte Ruth

It’s been a big week for the Red River rivals as they’ve each hosted a top 2015 recruit on an unofficial visit. Those recruits as well as TCU’s continued ability to recruit top-end defensive talent are some of the top storylines around the Big 12 this week.

When the Longhorns hosted several of their top targets on July 27 for their inaugural Texas Stampede, they were keeping their fingers crossed that ESPN Junior 300 cornerback Kendall Sheffield (Fort Bend, Texas/Marshall) would be in attendance.

Cornerback De’Monte Ruth (Dallas/Wilmer-Hutchins) committed to Iowa State and joined four-star receiver Allen Lazard (Urbandale, Iowa/Urbandale) in the 2014 class. Ruth, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound defensive back, chose Iowa State over an offer from Sam Houston State.
