Evaluations in the 2018 class continue to produce offers from the Texas Longhorns, with the latest going out to Alief Taylor wide receiver Brennan Eagles on Wednesday evening:

The 6’3.5, 202-pounder is one of numerous talented wide receivers in the 2018 class in the Lone Star State. As a result, Eagles already holds 15 offers, including Baylor, Georgia, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, TCU, Tennessee, UCLA, and USC.
By the end of the spring evaluation period, that number could easily double.
Head coach Tom Herman offered Eagles while at Houston, so the staff already has a relationship with the nation’s No. 16 wide receiver. Since Eagles hails from the Houston area, this will be a Corby Meekins special, with assistance from position coach Drew Mehringer, and the deep ties Meekins has in the area should benefit the Longhorns.
One of the reasons Eagles has so many offers is because he’s an elite athlete, especially for his size — he ran a 4.43 40-yard dash last spring at a Nike event, in addition to posting a 4.14 shuttle and 35-inch vertical leap.
The athleticism translated to the field at Taylor last fall, as Eagles recorded 55 catches for 1,069 yards and 13 touchdowns, an average of 19.4 yards per catch.
