As the Texas Longhorns pursue graduate transfer offensive tackles, the staff is also looking to add at least one more interior prospect in the 2018 class, extending an offer on Friday to Asa College offensive guard Johncarlo Valentin:

The 6’3, 330-pounder is originally from Philadelphia and currently holds offers from Baylor, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and others.
Prior to the dead period that just ended, Valentin took an official visit to Knoxville days after receiving his offer from Tennessee and also plans on visiting Baylor this weekend. He’s also visited Missouri, leaving him with two official visits remaining. Prior to Valentin’s trip to Waco, the Bears are considered the leader.
Valentin is a consensus three-star prospect ranked as the No. 37 junior college prospect nationally and the No. 2 junior college offensive guard.
