Texas Football Recruiting: 3-Star TE Wavering On Commitment, Looking At Other Schools

Three-star tight end Major Tennison (Bullard, TX) committed to the Texas Longhorns in October, calling it his "dream school." However, with the spread offensive system the Longhorns are implementing under new offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert, he is re-thinking his commitment a bit.

“I don’t know if I’d say I’m solid,” Tennison told 247sports. “They know where I stand. I’m looking around at other schools. I’m giving other schools a chance, and I’m going to take other visits. The staff understands that because I don’t know how the tight end is going to be used in the fall.

“From what I was told, there is going to be a lot more tight end usage this season. If I feel like I can help the team with the way Coach (Sterlin) Gilbert uses the tight end, then I’m all for it. But if it’s not the setup that will utilize my abilities, then maybe there is a better place for me.”

Tennison mentioned that he really likes Alabama, Arkansas and Michigan, but also wants to make unofficial visits to Georgia, LSU, Florida and Oregon. 

The 6'6", 245-pounder is ranked as the No. 16 tight end and No. 399 overall prospect in the country.
