On Saturday following their final mini-camp of the offseason, Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman and his staff extended offers to several prospects throughout a two-hour stretch.
2022 Lewisville wide receiver Armani Winfield became the first of the bunch to take to Twitter to announce his latest offer.
“This was a big offer for me, Texas is a school that I was looking for,” Winfield told BON.
The Longhorns join 20 other programs in pursuit of the 6’2, 180-pound pass-catcher, as Alabama, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and Tennessee are among the other programs that have offered the soon-to-be sophomore. As a freshman, Winfield caught 27 passes for 376 yards and three touchdowns.
Herman personally presented the offer, making Winfield the first and only 2022 wide receiver with a Texas offer thus far.
Just minutes after Winfield announced his invitation to take his talents to Texas, 2022 Beaumont West Brook safety Bryce Anderson did the same.
Anderson’s Texas offer became his seventh, with Texas joining Oklahoma, LSU, Texas A&M, Georgia Tech, Baylor, and Southern University in the mix.
He’s now just the second safety in his class to notch an offer from the Longhorns, alongside Argyle Liberty Christian product Christian Driver.
Moments later, Pearland running back Brandon Campbell became the first 2021 prospect to announce an offer from Texas on Saturday.
WOW,Business is Booming! EXCITED AND BLESSED TO SAY I HAVE RECEIVED AN OFFER FROM (MY CHILDHOOD DREAM SCHOOL) THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS!!! BIG THANKS TO THE @texasfootball Coaching Staff For HAVING CONFIDENCE IN ME‼️ @StanDraytonUT #HookEm pic.twitter.com/d5fYjSv9CS— Brandon (BC) Campbell 4 RB (@2021BC) June 15, 2019
The four-star ball-carrier has made multiple visits to Austin this offseason, including a trip for the spring game, and he now joins three other running back talents on Texas’ big board. Ranked as the nation’s No. 14 running back, per 247Sports, Campbell holds 18 total offers, including invitations from Washington, USC, and Arkansas.
As a sophomore, Campbell compiled 676 yards and five scores on 131 carries, and caught 13 passes for 198 yards and two more touchdowns.
Another defensive back is now officially on Texas’ big board, as Denton Ryan standout Billy Bowman announced an offer from the Horns.
The four-star talent is among only a handful of prospects at his position with a Texas offer in hand, but he now owns 26 overall. Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, Oregon, and TCU are among the others seeking his services.
Last season, the top-300 national talent was honored as an AP Class 5A first-team all-state selection after tallying 30 tackles, eight pass breakups and five interceptions — three of which were returned for touchdowns — on defense, while also contributing as a pass-catcher, hauling in 53 receptions for 553 yards and eight scores.
2021 New Caney outside linebacker Derrick Harris Jr., too, took home a Texas offer.
The four-star talent is nothing short of a star in the making after totaling 83 tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, and six pass breakups as a sophomore. Such a showing last season is largely why Harris becomes one of the earliest outside linebackers the Longhorns have offered, as only Texarkana Texas High product Clayton Smith and Upland (Calif.) product Jonathan Flowe have earned Texas offers before Harris.
Ranked as the nation’s No. 10 outside linebacker, Harris now holds seven offers, as Baylor, Miami, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, SMU, and Tulsa are also involved.
The final offer of the evening went out to Jaeden Roberts, a 2021 offensive guard set to suit up for Houston North Shore next season.
Originally an out-of-state recruit, Roberts last played for Lenexa (Kan.) St. Thomas Aquinas before moving to the Houston area. At North Shore, Roberts will enjoy as much exposure as possible, but he’s hardly needed it, as the 6’5, 338-pound prospect has already garnered offers from Alabama, LSU, Georgia, USC, Texas A&M, and Nebraska, just to name a few.
Roberts joins Katy Taylor star Bryce Foster as the only 2021 offensive guards with a Texas offer to date.
