According to multiple reports, the Texas Longhorns recently extended an offer to Mansfield Legacy safety Jalen Catalon, a member of the 2019 recruiting class.
The 5’9, 180-pounder has been on the recruiting radar of college programs since recording 196 tackles and nine interceptions in a breakout 2016 season as a sophomore.
As a result, Catalon picked up an offer from Oklahoma in January and now holds 15 total, including Arkansas, Clemson, Missouri, Ohio State, Stanford, and TCU.
Clemson is regarded as the early leader with the only 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction cast so far, but Catalon is still in the midst of his junior season and it seems clear that there isn’t any consensus in the industry about where he’s leaning.
The Mansfield Legacy product is a consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 109 player nationally, the No. 6 safety, and the No. 15 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Catalon is the second in-state safety in the 2019 class to receive an offer from the Longhorns, along with Dallas Bishop Dunne’s Brian Williams, currently ranked as the top safety in the 2019 class.
