Texas Football Recruiting Rumors: 4-Star Beason Interested In Texas, Targeting The Trenches, And More

The Early Signing Period was a success for the Texas Longhorns, as they signed 19 of their 22 commitments and hold the No. 3 recruiting class in college football. Their work is far from over because recruiting the 2018 class isn't done with traditional signing day just around the corner on Feb. 7. Three players (Keondre Coburn, Keaontay Ingram, Daniel Carson) are all currently committed and have yet to sign, but there are even more Texas football recruiting news and rumors you need to know.

Texas Re-offers Beason A Scholarship
Four-star prospect Marquez Beason from Dallas, TX is the 83rd-ranked recruit n the country, according to 247 Sports. Today, Beason told 247Sports that he plans on being a DB. He was first considered one of the best receivers in the country, but decided to become a defensive back and is now one of the top corners in the country.

“I am fully committed to being a defensive back,” Beason said. “I came out here to sharpen my skills and to keep getting at it. I feel like I bring so much to the table as a defensive player.”

Multiple schools, including Texas, have re-offered Beason a scholarship to play DB.

The long and athletic Beason stands 5-foot-11, weighing 173 pounds with great ball skills. He is raw in terms of understanding the position but has a high ceiling due to his athletic ability.

Other schools competing for his services are Oklahoma and Texas A&M, but Horns 247 writes that he is "trending to Texas."

Ojomo is visiting the Longhorns this weekend and with a successful visit, expect him to be lining up with the Longhorns in 2018.
