The Texas Longhorns may not have a defensive 2019 commit yet, but head coach Tom Herman and the 'Horns are establishing an emphasis on the trenches for the class.
The program offered three-star Huntsville strong-side defensive end T'Vondre Sweat on Thursday, according to Sweat's Twitter.
The Texas native is ranked as the No. 559 overall player in the class of 2019, the No. 38 SDE, and the No. 73 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
The interest Sweat is garnering from high-major programs, however, suggests that the 2016 first team All-District selection could be an underrated prospect.
The team to beat at the moment appears to be Texas A&M, as the Aggies hold all four predictions on 247's Crystal Ball.
Other prominent offers include Ole Miss, Houston, and Baylor.
Sweat may be somewhat raw, but at an athletic 6'3 and 249 pounds, there's no reason to believe he can't be molded into a high-level college player.
The Longhorns certainly have room to add several defensive linemen in the upcoming classes, as the defensive trenches are currently a thinner spot in the scholarship breakdown.
