On Monday, the Texas Longhorns received another commitment from a preferred walk on with impressive credentials, as Houston The Village School tight end Austin Hill announced that he will continue his football career on the Forty Acres:
After a crazy high school journey, I am blessed to be in the position I am today. I am very excited to announce that I have committed to the University of Texas! @CoachDWarehime @jmjonesUT #HookEm pic.twitter.com/j2klGUqELm— Austin Hill (@austinhill30) February 5, 2019
The 6’5, 225-pounder doesn’t report any offers, but has prototypical size for the tight end position, which is unusual for walk ons. Most walk ons aren’t rated, either, but Hill is a consensus two-star prospect ranked as the No. 114 tight end nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Hill reports a 4.8 40-yard dash, a 4.4 shuttle, and a 30-inch vertical leap on his Hudl page.
