The only thing hotter than the weather in Austin may be Tom Herman and the Texas coaching staff on the recruiting trail. On Monday night, the Longhorns secured arguably one of the biggest gets in the state as elite wide receiver Brennan Eagles became the newest commitment to the Texas Longhorns.
The Alief Taylor star chose the Longhorns over offers from Alabama, LSU, Ohio State and Texas A&M among many others who were vying for one of the most highly-touted receivers in the country. Eagles is ranked as the No. 28 player nationally and the No. 3 player in the state of Texas according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.
He also becomes the third Houston area product to commit to Texas within the last 10 days that includes Houston Lamar receiver Al’vonte Woodard and Houston Heights cornerback Jalen Green, who committed on Friday. The Class of 2018 for the Longhorns is now ranked fourth overall in the country and currently includes five of the top six recruits from the Lone Star State (247 Sports).
Eagles had a great season last year in 2016 for the Lions, finishing with 55 catches for 1,069 yards and 13 touchdowns. At 6-3 and nearly 215 pounds, the four-star receiver presents a big frame and a tough matchup for opposing defenses.
The rising senior was scheduled to make his commitment on July 17 but Eagles’s commitment was pushed back due to what he called at the time “technical difficulties”. No matter what the reason was for the delay, Longhorn coaches have to be thrilled to secure one of their biggest wins on the recruiting trail so far.
