After evaluating Richmond George Ranch weak-side defensive end Peter Mpagi for the past year, the Texas Longhorns finally put an offer on the Thursday.
Mpagi’s Texas offer pushes his total to 24, with invitations stemming from Baylor, Arkansas, Nebraska, Houston, TCU, and Texas Tech, among a variety of others.
However, the Longhorns will likely emerge as the team to beat in short order now that an offer is on the table. After making a pair of trips to the Forty Acres for the Longhorns Junior Day in February, and later for the spring game in April, Mpagi named Texas in his top eight on May 27, despite being without an offer at the time. He then made it back to Austin over the weekend for Texas’ mini-camp, which ultimately helped Mpagi earn his Texas offer.
With Mpagi aiming to announce his commitment prior to his senior season, the Longhorns appear to be in the driver’s seat down the stretch. Texas currently holds all three of his Crystal Ball projections.
A 6-foot-4, 227-pound edge rusher, Mpagi totaled 33 tackles, nine sacks, and five tackles for loss as a junior. He’s ranked as the nation’s No. 68 weak-side defensive end and as the No. 120 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.
