Former Texas A&M commit Cameron Echols-Luper receives Texas offer

Erich Schlegel

A Texas native and victim of being recruited over by the Aggies is now on the Texas radar.

In the ongoing search for a speedy wide receiver to replace Marquise Goodwin, the Texas Longhorns extended a new offer recently:

When Florida wide receiver James Clark cancelled his official visit to Texas, it looked like the Longhorns might not be able to land another wideout to join Jake Oliver and Jacorey Warrick in the class.

The good news is that the 6-0, 195-pound Echols-Luper has ties to the state of Texas after being born in Ennis prior to moving to Alabama, where his stepfather, Curtis Luper, was an assistant coach under Gene Chizik at Auburn. Committed to A&M from August 21st until his decommitment on January 8th, a result of the numbers crunch from the Aggies basically recruiting over him by taking prep star JaQuay Williams, former Texas pledge Ricky Seals-Jones, and Florida product Tony Stevens.

Echols-Luper already has two visits set up to other Texas schools -- TCU on Friday and then Texas Tech the following the week, leaving time for him to make it to Austin if he wants to visit, which he apparently does. It appears that he has four official visits left, leaving Texas basically battling themselves for one of the last two spots, unless another school emerges in the coming days.

A consensus three-star prospect with a 5.7 ranking from Rivals (making him a borderline four star), Echols-Luper has listed 4.40 speed that looks believable from his film. Earlier in the process, he was willing to play defense, but has now decided that his future lies on the offensive side of the ball, where the Longhorns are surely recruiting him.

Unlike most of the other prospects Texas has looked at to replace Goodwin in recent months, many of those efforts were always longshots -- remember the brief interest in Laquon Treadwell? But Echols-Luper is pretty open and has those aforementioned ties to the state. And despite some recent losses on the recruiting trail, the Longhorns still don't lose many battles to TCU or Texas Tech.
