It took a while, but the Longhorns are now officially in the mix for the top-100 prospect.

Only three prospects in the state's top 20 recruits entered Friday without an offer from the Texas Longhorns, but that changed when Aldine Macarthur defensive end Isaiah Chambers finally received one from the Texas staff, according to multiple reports.

It's not clear what took the staff so long to extend the offer -- the 6'4, 252-pounder isn't exactly new to the recruiting radar, ranking No. 98 overall, No. 9 among strongside defensive ends, and No. 16 in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. As expected for a top-100 recruit, Chambers holds 26 offers, including Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, Florida State, Georgia, Houston, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon, TCU, Texas A&M, and Washington.

The Aggies are currently the major leader in his Crystal Ball:

Chambers visited Baylor and TCU during the spring after taking in a Junior Day in College Station. Two trips for games last fall help provide further optimism about Texas A&M eventually landing the state's No. 2 strongside defensive end. Back in March, he said that he would have interest in Texas, but that he hadn't received much contact from the staff.

So it remains to be seen whether entering his recruitment late will make a difference.
