Since being hired at Texas, head coach Tom Herman has made the Houston area a top focus on the recruiting trail.
On Monday night, the Longhorns claimed a major victory in one of the most fertile recruiting areas in the country by picking up a commitment from ESPN 300 wide receiver Brennan Eagles.
Eagles, the No. 94-ranked prospect in the class of 2018, committed to Texas over Clemson, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma and others, providing even more momentum for the Longhorns’ top-10 class.
Eagles joins wide receiver Al’vonte Woodard and defensive back Jalen Green as ESPN 300 commitments from the Houston area in the past 10 days, and now gives the Longhorns four ESPN 300 commitments from that area led by the Lone Star State’s top-ranked prospect — safety B.J. Foster.
