Texas commit Lorenzo Joe invited to The Opening

Lorenzo Joe at the Dallas NFTC - Wescott Eberts (SB Nation)

One of the last invitations went out to another Texas commit on Monday night.

When asked at the Round Rock SQT several weeks ago about a potential future invite to The Opening, Texas commit Lorenzo Joe told SB Nation Recruiting that the folks at Student Sports had kept in contact and asked for highlights. Flash forward several weeks later and the Abilene Cooper wide receiver finally secured one of the final spots:

Despite earning the positional MVP award at the Dallas NFTC among a strong group, it was Louisiana wideout Malachi Dupre who nabbed his Golden Ticket on that day. Joe had to wait, but he'd probably say it was worth it. A quarterback during the season and during 7-on-7 now for Cooper after replacing Texas Tech signal-caller Clayton Nicholas last fall, Joe still spends time working at wide receiver, but his workouts aren't the same as getting live reps.

Those live reps that he'll get during 7-on-7 play at The Opening will be the best that he gets until he signs with Texas and arrives on campus for passing drills next summer. Of course, Joe could earn an invitation to the 2014 US Army All-American game after a nomination about a month ago, but that invitation hasn't gone out yet.

Unfortunately, the odds of Joe ending up on the same team as quarterback pledge Jerrod Heard isn't entirely likely, though the two did benefit from their first real work together at the June 2 camp as they started to establish a rapport for the future.

In any case, Joe will have the opportunity to take a free trip to Oregon and get better as a football player. Not a bad deal.
