The recruiting rivalry between the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners in the 2018 class will add one final chapter on Tuesday evening when Katy defensive tackle Moro Ojomo makes his announcement:

The 6’3, 280-pounder technically has a top list of Miami, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas A&M, Texas, and TCU, but that was released back on January 11, before Ojomo took any of his official visits.

In the weeks since, the late-rising prospect visited Oklahoma, Texas, Miami, and Oregon, though the Hurricanes and Ducks aren’t considered serious contenders.

Texas had the benefit of offering Ojomo in early December before his recruitment took off, with Texas A&M, Tennessee, Oregon, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Miami, and Alabama all extending offers after the Longhorns.

There were some twists and turns in Ojomo’s recruitment, however. After the Aggies offered, there was a surge of belief that Ojomo could end up in College Station. And following his trip to Norman, the Sooners surged in his 247Sport Crystal Ball rankings.

Leading into the official visit to Austin and in the weeks since, momentum swung in favor of the Longhorns and that hasn’t changed with mere hours remaining in Ojomo’s recruitment.

As it stands currently, Texas holds 79 percent of the Crystal Ball picks and every single one since January 18.

Ojomo is a consensus three-star prospect ranked as the No. 388 player nationally, the No. 27 defensive tackle, and the No. 55 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
