Texas has been recruiting exceptionally well over the past three years. They’ve had a top ten recruiting class since 2018, and 2021 already looks like they could make it four years in a row. In order to maintain that top ten ranking The University of Texas just offered out a slew of scholarship offers to some of the best prospects in the country.
Hal Presley, Wide Receiver, Mansfield Summit High School
Hal Presley is a three-star wide receiver who was offered by Texas on March 9th. Presley is 6’3” and 190 pounds. He recently helped Mansfield Summit reach a 7-4 record last season.
In his junior season for the Jaguars, Presley doubled his production in every way from his sophomore year. He finished with 45 catches for 874 yards and eight touchdowns, all of which were team-highs for the Jaguars.
“Just working on things that I know I have to get better at every day,” Presley said on what he contributes his success too.
Presley has 20-plus offers from schools all over the country from USC to TCU to Ole Miss. Texas became the most recent program to give Presley an offer as he begins to prepare for his final season at Mansfield Summit.
“It’s really cool because I use to dream about it and now it’s happening,” Presley said on the offers he’s received.
Ketron Jackson, Wide Receiver, Royse City High School
Another wide receiver that Texas recently reached out too is 4-star receiver from Royse City, Ketron Jackson.
Jackson already holds offers from Alabama, Auburn and Ohio State among others but Texas just recently threw their hat in the mix on this star-studded athlete.
The Bulldogs had an impressive 9-3 season this last season. Being primarily a running team, it’s impressive to see what Jackson did with limited opportunities. He finished the year with 61 catches for 889 yards and nine touchdowns. He ended up on the receiving end of about 50% of the team’s total passing yards.
What’s even more impressive is how he got better as the season progressed. In his last three games of the year, he totaled 25 catches for almost 400 yards, including nearly 200 against the eventual state champions in 5A D2, Aledo.
Bryce Langston, Weak Side Defensive End, Vanguard High School
Despite announcing a top-five back in October, Texas made an offer to the four-star defensive end from Ocala, Florida.
While The University of Florida seems like the most logical choice for Langston, anything can happen. As a junior for Vanguard High School last year, Langston racked up 51 total tackles, 10 for a loss in 12 games. He also recorded two sacks and led the team in quarterback hurries with three.
Bryan Allen Jr, Safety, Aledo High School
A big reason Aledo won a state record ninth championship, was due to sophomore defensive back transfer Bryan Allen Jr.
As a Sophomore last season he led the Bearcats in tackles, interceptions and forced fumbles with 122, three and two respectively.
Allen Jr. who already holds offers from Florida, TCU and Arkansas among others, just visited Texas a week ago.
“My family and I loved UT I will be going back,” Allen Jr. said on the experience.
Allen Jr. transferred to Aledo after starting in his freshman year at Southwest High School and has put in the hard work to be considered a leader on Aledo’s defense.
“It’s humbling but I wasn’t surprised. I’m dedicated to my craft so I know it’s coming I just have to keep grinding,” Allen Jr. said on what it’s like to receive so many offers already.
Allen Jr. still has two more years at Aledo though and has a list of things he still wants to accomplish.
“Winning state two more times, Academic All-American, number one safety in the nation might are just some of my goals.”
Shawn Murphy, Inside Linebacker, Stonewall Jackson High School
Shawn Murphy is a five-star inside linebacker from Manassas, Virginia and is considered one of the best players in the 2022 class.
Over the past month, he’s received offers from Texas, Texas A&M, Arizona State, and Arkansas.
The 6’2” 220 lb. soon to be junior can do everything on the field and hasn’t even peaked athletically.
If Texas can land Murphy it would be one of the biggest signings of the 2022 class.
Justin Medlock, Linebacker, Manvel High School
Medlock was the anchor behind a Manvel team that allowed only 19 points a game and finished with a 13-1 record.
This sophomore is a tacking machine and was the only Maverick to finish with over 100 tackles. He also recorded five passes defended, two fumble recoveries and three and a half sacks on the year.
Medlock recently visited the UT campus and received an offer while he was there.
“The visit was great. It was a great atmosphere and everyone made me feel at home as soon as I walked in.”
The 6’1” 200-pound linebacker has received offers from SMU, Nebraska, and Baylor among others and is set to visit the campus of the defending national champions, the LSU Tigers.
“It’s a blessing but it just makes me hungrier and want to go even harder,” Medlock said on the number of offers he has received.
Medlock still has two more seasons at Manvel and looks to accomplish more before making a decision.
“I want to win a state championship before I leave. That’s my main focus right now before committing anywhere and leaving high school.”
Brandon Inniss, Wide Receiver, University High School
The lone offer Texas made in the 2023 class was Brandon Inniss, a wide receiver from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Inniss, who just completed his freshman season, is an absolute machine. He’s already received 20 scholarship offers from the likes of programs including LSU, Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida.
“It feels good to have all these offers but I feel like I have way more stuff to accomplish before I commit to a college, but it feels good to have them,” Inniss said.
In his freshman season at University High School Iniss had 27 receptions for 520 yards and 10 receiving touchdowns. He also ran in a touchdown and recorded 12 tackles and two interceptions on defense.
“I workout with the seniors because I feel like they will push me harder than anybody in the weight room, and they do. My teammates push me hard because of all the attention I am getting, they don’t want me to let up. I give credit to Ricardo Hallman, Robert Floyd, Deion Small, Fredrick Cage and Max Balthazar for pushing me in the weight room and on the field. They are my brothers and we fight for each other,” Inniss said on what he credits his success too.
Inniss still has three years left at high school before he’ll be playing D1 football on Saturdays.
“I want to accomplish having over 5,000 all-purpose yards and over 50 touchdowns throughout my career. I would also love to win a state championship before I commit to a college.”
