The 'Horns now have three short stops in their No. 11 nationally ranked class.

David Pierce and the Texas Longhorns are locking down the future of the middle infield, as the 'Horns have landed 2018 shortstop Greyson Lembcke.

Lembcke joins top 100 recruit Bryce Reagan and Underclass High Honorable Mention All-American Alec Carr as the third shortstop taken in the class.

Of the three prospects, Lembcke is the least likely to head to the pros out of high school.

Lembcke is not ranked by Perfect Game, but the recruiting service did write a scouting report on him in June 2015 and gave him a seven out of 10 ranking.

In that report, Perfect Game wrote about Lembcke's potential, stating that he "projects well physically" and "has the frame to keep improving".

Lembcke is a two sport athlete, as he also plays quarterback at Klein High School (Tx.).

Pierce has taken several two sport athletes in his recruiting classes — former three-star QB Kamron Fields, who committed to Texas as a center fielder, is a prime example.

Pierce was likely not only interested in the 5'10, 190 pound prospect because of his athleticism. The right-handed can also pitch, throwing a sweeping curve and occasional change.

It's also worth mentioning that Lembcke is a 4.0 student.

The Longhorns now have 16 commits for the 2018 class, and hold the No. 11 ranked class in the nation.

The addition of Lembcke helps Texas' depth in the middle infield, as the 'Horns lost freshmen shortstops Andres Sosa and Austin McNicholas to transfer at the end of last season.
