Texas Football Recruiting: Longhorns A Finalist For 3-Star WR, 3-Star LB & More

National Signing Day is less than a month away, and as such, Tom Herman & Co. are scrambling to put together a competitive recruiting class. That means there's plenty to get to around Texas football recruiting. Here are all the latest Texas recruiting news and rumors you need to know.

Longhorns a finalist for 3-star WR
Three-star wide receiver Jordan Pouncey (Winter Park, FL) released his top four schools on Twitter, and Texas made the cut:

Pouncey decommitted from Notre Dame last week, which happened to be eight days after Texas offered him a scholarship. He is scheduled to make an official visit to Texas on Jan. 20.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder is ranked as the No. 107 wide receiver and No. 717 overall prospect in the country.

Texas also a finalist for 3-star LB
The Longhorns are also a finalist for three-star inside linebacker Marqez Bimage (Brenham, TX), who is down to either Texas or Baylor. Bimage was committed to Houston, but decommitted once the Longhorns offered him. 

The 6-foot-3, 233-pounder will make a visit to Texas on Jan. 13 and to Baylor on Jan. 20. Bimage is ranked as the No. 25 inside linebacker and No. 704 overall prospect in the country.

Longhorns eyeing Houston OL commit
Herman has made a point to recruit players that committed to play for him at Houston and try to flip them to Texas, and it appears he will do the same with three-star offensive tackle Samuel Cosmi (Humble, TX). The Longhorns have been showing a lot of interest in him and are expected to offer a scholarship over the course of the next few weeks, and if they do, Cosmi will flip to Texas.

“As a kid, that was my dream school,” Cosmi said. “I was always with the Longhorns growing up. Even when they were doing bad, I was still rooting for them. It’s just something about Texas.”

The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder is ranked as the No. 151 offensive tackle and No. 1,680 overall prospect in the country.
