For the very first time, Tom Herman and his staff have offered a high school prospect hailing from Massachusetts, as the Texas Longhorns latest offer goes out to Boston (Mass.) Milton Academy outside linebacker Kalal Mullings, he announced on Twitter.
Ranked as a top-125 prospect nationally and as the eighth-best outside linebacker that the 2020 class has to offer, per the 247Sports Composite, Mullings is owner to 27 offers, with opportunities stemming from the likes of Clemson, Michigan, Ohio State, Stanford, Northwestern, and Notre Dame, to name a few.
The four-star talent is fresh off of a weekend official visit to Northwestern, and he’s scheduled to officially visit Wisconsin in the coming weeks on June 7. That, along with Michigan, Stanford, and Ohio State already looming as major factors, places pressure on Texas to get Mullings to campus in the very near future if the Horns hope to emerge as a true option in this recruitment.
Stanford, where Mullings unofficially visited in early March, currently stands as the favorite for his services.
The top-ranked recruit in Massachusetts, Mullings is becomes the first-ever Massachusetts high school prospect to add an offer from the Longhorns. Texas did offer Badara Traore, an eventual LSU signee who originally hailed from Hyde Park (Ma.) Matignon, though the offer didn’t come until after Traore took his talents to New York and joined the JUCO ranked.
Mullings is now one of seven uncommitted outside linebackers with a Texas offer in hand.
