Continued evaluations in the 2018 class produced a Texas Longhorns offer on Monday for Houston Heights cornerback Jalen Green:
The 6’1.5, 175-pounder is already closing in on nearly 30 offers, including Arizona, Baylor, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas A&M, and USC, among others.
Unsurprisingly, head coach Tom Herman and his staff offered the local product while at Houston, so even though Texas is offered after numerous top programs, area recruiter Corby Meekins already has a relationships with Green.
Now the hope for the ‘Horns is that Meekins can leverage that relationship to recruit the city as well as he did for the Cougars.
The only current prediction for Green in the 247Sports Crystal Ball is to LSU.
A consensus four-star prospect, Green’s rankings match his impressive offer list — he’s the No. 62 player nationally, the No. 11 cornerback, and the No. 8 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
The Longhorns don’t currently hold any commitments in the 2018 class, but are well positioned with the top defensive backs on the recruiting board, including Houston Lamar cornerback Anthony Cook and Angleton safety BJ Foster.
