Texas Longhorns offer fast-rising 3-star WR Tyrell Shavers

A monster performance at the Dallas The Opening regional camp has sent the Lewisville wide receiver's recruitment into the stratosphere.

Who says that camps don't matter? Don't tell that to Lewisville wide receiver Tyrell Shavers, who is one of the hottest prospects in the country after posting insane testing results and showing out against his peers at the Dallas The Opening Regional camp a little more than a week ago.

On Tuesday, Shavers picked up an offer from the Texas Longhorns as a result:

The 6'6', 202-pounder is now closing in on 20 offers after many high-profile programs have joined his recruitment in the last 10 days. In fact, here's the list just since the Dallas camp on March 13 -- Miami, Texas A&M, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Stanford, Missouri, and Florida State.

At Coppell High School, Shavers posted an incredible SPARQ rating of 138 by running a laser-timed 4.38 40-yard dash, posting a 4.09 shuttle, and registering a vertical leap of 36.3 inches. Any of those numbers would be impressive for any prospect in any context, but considering that Shavers is 6'6 and 200 pounds makes his testing results rather otherworldly.

So far, the rankings haven't changed to reflected his burgeoning stock, so he's still a consensus three-star prospect ranked as the No. 381 player nationally, the No. 56 wide receiver, and the No. 55 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. However, expect to see him make a major leap when the services update those rankings.

It's not like Shavers failed to produce on the field as a junior, either -- he caught 36 passes for 667 yards and 10 touchdowns, providing evidence that he's not a workout warrior.

And the good news for Texas is that his recruitment took off so recently that there are not yet any 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions yet, indicating that he may still be pretty wide open.
