Eight offers went out to prospects around the country.

The Texas Longhorns coaching staff has clearly been busy evaluating prospects from around the country, culminating in one of the biggest offer days in recent memory, as eight mid-week offers went out on Wednesday.

Here's a look at each prospect:

  • Woodbury (Minn.) East Ridge quarterback Seth Green (Oregon commit) -- One of two committed players on this list, Green pledged to the Ducks last October. The 6'3, 210-pounder is a bit raw as a passer, like Xavier Gaines, but he's a great athlete and the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback nationally. It's hard to imagine Texas flipping a quarterback prospect committed to a school with a record of development at the position like that of Oregon.
  • Grandview quarterback Zach Smith (Baylor commit) -- More evidence of Baylor's early recruiting prowess, Smith committed last summer upon receiving his first and only offer until Wednesday. Now a consensus four-star prospect and top-20 recruit in Texas, Smith is big (6'4, 215) and may have the strongest arm in the state for 2016. The guess here is that he sticks with the Bears.
  • Lucas (Texas) Lovejoy quarterback Bowman Sells -- Offer analysis here.
  • Plano running back Brandon Stephens -- Offer analysis here.
  • Houston King all-purpose back Trayveon Williams -- Offer analysis here.
  • Hope (Ark.) defensive end McTelvin Agim -- A consensus four-star prospect and top-10 strong-side defensive end, Agim is a fan of the Sooners and Longhorns, so there's a solid chance that he ends up somewhere other than with the home-state Razorbacks. Currently listed at 6'2.5 ad 247 pounds, he could grow into the type of four-tech defensive end that Strong covets for his 3-3-5 looks.
  • Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy cornerback Khalil Ladler -- A legit 4.47 40 at the Atlanta NFTC last year provides credible evidence of the 5'10, 168-pounder's speed. Ranked as a top-10 cornerback nationally, 247Sports Crystal Ball picks are in for LSU, Georgia, and Florida State.
  • Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy cornerback Saivion Smith -- The 6'1, 175-pounder fits the classic Strong mold for a cornerback and is also the nation's No. 6 prospect and top player at his position. Florida State, Clemson, and LSU are considered the teams to beat at his point.
