As spring practice kicked off for the Texas Longhorns on Tuesday, Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton tight end Brayden Liebrock was in attendance on an unofficial visit:
The 6’5, 220-pounder was at his first stop on a countrywide tour of college campuses — in the following days, Liebrock will visit Colorado, Ole Miss, Ohio State, and Notre Dame.
The latter two schools are currently among his top group, along with Arizona State and California, with the Buckeyes holding both of his early 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions. Almost 20 programs have offered Liebrock in total, making him one of the hottest prospects in the Southwest over the last several months.
Texas offered less than two weeks after National Signing Day and Liebrock is now one of eight tight ends to hold an offer from the Longhorns. With the visit coming within weeks of receiving the offer, it’s possible that head coach Tom Herman’s program could emerge as a legitimate contender for his services, but it’s too early to tell whether that will be the case.
Clearly, Liebrock is interested.
A consensus three-star prospect, he’s ranked as the No. 399 player nationally, the No. 13 tight end, and the No. 7 player in Arizona, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
