The offensive line has already been a vital point for the Texas Longhorns throughout the earlier stages of the 2020 cycle.

Tom Herman landed his second commitment from Helotes O’Connor offensive guard Logan Parr in late October, and has offered a total of 13 offensive linemen from the 2020 class thus far.

Prosper offensive tackle Jake Majors is one of the latest to receive an offer from the Longhorns out of that bunch. Alongside Texas, Majors holds a total of 11 offers from the likes of Arizona State, Houston, Missouri, Oklahoma, Stanford, Utah, and Washington. He is thankful for the opportunities that have been presented to him early on the recruiting trail.

“In all honesty, the recruiting process has treated me well,” Majors told BON. “I’ve been lucky to be one of the guys introduced to it early during my sophomore year… At the moment the top schools standing out are Texas, Washington, Oklahoma, Stanford and Colorado.”

The three-star prospect had the honor of being offered by Herman during his visit to Texas when they defeated USC. What made that offer even more special to Majors was that it was presented to him by Herman himself on the field before the game had begun. It was an “amazing” experience for Majors and a very surreal moment.

The Texas coaching staff has made a massive impression on Majors and his family. Majors and Herb Hand are in contact with each other frequently, and he loves what he’s hearing from the Longhorns offensive line coach.

“What stands out to me is the relationships they want to build,” Majors expressed. “They are all about the players and their family and making sure they are taken care of. The first thing Coach Hand did when we came up was hug my mom and talk to her about what he thinks of me and it meant a lot to her.”

“I’ve mainly been in contact with Coach Hand,” Majors added. He’s been telling me he loves what he sees in me and believes that I’m a big time player and will help a lot in moving the program forward. He wants to coach me and I want to be coached by him.”

Progressing as a team is something Majors wants to see continue to happen with the Longhorns program. Majors believes that is the best way to reach supreme success.

At 6’4, 280 pounds, Majors is ranked as the No. 358 prospect in the nation, and as the No. 44 player in the state for the 2020 cycle, per the 247Sports Composite.
