Following an official visit to Baton Rouge last weekend, LSU Tigers wide receiver commit Mannie Netherly announced on Tuesday that he is no longer considering other schools:

The Texas Longhorns have continued the school’s long-term pursuit of the 6’2, 183-pounder under new head coach Tom Herman, as tight ends coach Corby Meekins visited Netherly last week:

However, the school will not receive an official visit from the consensus four-star prospect.

Texas originally offered Netherly in late February during a Junior Day visit, but he committed to LSU in July over more than 25 other schools.

Netherly is the No. 259 prospect nationally, the No. 36 wide receiver, and the No. 40 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

At the position, the ‘Horns currently hold a commitment from Tyler John Tyler’s Damion Miller and remain in pursuit of TCU commit Omar Manning and Oklahoma pledge Charleston Rambo, who picked up his offer from Texas last week.

With 11 scholarship wide receivers already in place for the 2017 roster, the Longhorns likely have one more spot remaining.
