Another huge day of offers for the Texas Longhorns on Thursday produced one for Trophy Club Byron Nelson defensive end Brandon Bowen, according to Horns247.

The 6'5, 220-pounder is a consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 267 prospect overall, the No. 18 weak-side defensive end, and the No. 37 player in Texas.

In addition to Texas, Bowen also holds offers from Baylor, Minnesota, North Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, TCU, and Texas Tech. Given his recent trajectory, that offer list should only continue to grow in the coming days.

So far there is only one prediction in his 247Sports Crystal Ball:

A quick-twitch athlete who played defensive end in the three-down looks for Byron Nelson, as well as wide receiver, Bowen is a fantastic athlete with reported 4.63 speed in the 40-yard dash.

He projects as a FOX end in the Texas defense if he elects to join the class. Opposing linemen often have difficulty getting their hands on him because he understands how to use his own hands and has a certain slipperiness to his pass-rushing arsenal.

When unblocked or pursuing plays, his athleticism shows in a major way -- he can both change direction and chase down plays well down the field with his top-end speed.

To put it simply, the upside for Bowen is significant because of his high-level physical tools, which make him a no-brainer offer.
