The four-star lineman chose the Longhorns over UCLA as well as offers from Alabama, Michigan and LSU among others.
The senior is the second offensive line commitment for Tom Herman and the Longhorns in the Class of 2018, joining Reese Moore from Seminole as the other commit in the trenches. He is commit No. 18 in the recruiting class and moves Texas just behind Ohio State for the best recruiting class in the country according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.
At 6’4″ and 290 pounds, Ghirmai is a prospect that has a lot of room to grow and has a chance to make an immediate impact on the field when he arrives in Austin.
After earning a second-team all-district selection in his first year of playing football, the senior lineman will look to anchor a Wolverine offensive line and team looking for even bigger things in 2017 after advancing to the regional semifinals in the Class 5A Division I playoffs.
Frisco Wakeland opens their season at home on September 1 against Frisco Liberty.
