The Longhorns were aggressive on the recruiting trail Wednesday.

The Texas Longhorns extended the first offer to another in-state 2017 prospect on Wednesday when Houston Episcopal offensive tackle Walker Little became the newest recruit to officially land on the recruiting radar:

The Longhorns offered Texarkana Liberty-Eylau defensive end Lagaryonn Carson earlier in the day and the Crimson Tide followed promptly thereafter.

Little is a 6'7, 300-pounder who is teammates with key 2017 defensive tackle target Marvin Wilson and visited with the consensus five-star prospect in early April. Currently unrated by the services, Little received a visit from defensive backs coach Chris Vaughn on Wednesday before receiving his offer.

The quick reaction from Little?

The offer should be the first of many for Little based simply on his frame, movement ability, and natural punch, so entering his recruitment now looks like an excellent move by the Texas staff.
