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:

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.
