The Junior Day for the Texas Longhorns on Saturday produced a morning offer for Texas A&M commit Mannie Netherly, a wide receiver from Crosby:
The 6'2, 180-pounder committed to the Aggies in November, but his visit is evidence that he's still rather open to the recruiting process. A prediction for the Longhorns also came in to Netherly's 247Sports Crystal Ball on Saturday after the offer, so there may be some momentum here for Texas as new wide receivers coach Charlie Williams looks to add another high-level prospect to join Tyler John Tyler wide receiver Damion Miller in the 2017 class.
Texas also has an advocate in Netherly's immediate family:

A consensus four-star prospect, Netherly is the No. 219 player nationally, the No. 29 wide receiver, and the No. 31 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He also holds offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, BYU, Colorado, Georgia, LSU, Michigan State, Missouri, Nebraska, TCU, Texas Tech, and Utah, among others.
As a junior, Netherly threw for two touchdowns, ran for four touchdowns, and caught 60 passes for 1,002 yards and 18 touchdowns. Oh yeah, he also scored a touchdown on a kickoff return. Kid can ball.
