Despite being considered a heavy LSU lean, the high-level cover corner maintains his openness.

The Texas Longhorns offered Metairie (La.) Archbishop Rummel cornerback Kristian Fulton on Tuesday evening, according to VarsityPreps.com.

The 6'0, 165-pounder is both highly-ranked and highly-coveted, as he's a consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 35 recruit, the No. 4 cornerback, and the No. 6 player in Louisiana. Fulton also holds 22 offers, including Arizona State, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, TCU, Texas A&M, Tennessee, UCLA, and Vanderbilt, among others.

Unsurprisingly, he's viewed as a heavy Tigers lean, with all 16 of the predictions in the 247Sports Crystal Ball in favor of home-state LSU. However, he maintained within the last several weeks that he's "pretty open" to the recruiting process, so the Horns could have a shot at getting him on campus if he's interested in the program. And, in fact, Fulton plans on visiting Texas.

Fulton recently visited Arkansas and LSU for their respective spring games.

At the Nike New Orleans Opening Regional at the end of March, Fulton either scratched his 40-yard dash time or didn't run, but he did earn an invitation to The Opening Finals after running a 4.29 shuttle and posting a 37.4-inch vertical leap. Despite his lack of mass, he's known as a good tackler with impressive instincts and ball skills who also possesses the reactive quickness and recovery speed necessary to become a high-level cover corner.
