Texas B-backer target Prince Dorbah sets commitment time

The Horns are about to enter a crucial period of recruiting for the 2020 class.

The Texas Longhorns are still working to add defensive prospects to the seven-man 2020 recruiting class and head coach Tom Herman and his staff could secure a big piece on Tuesday when Highland Park outside linebacker Prince Dorbah makes his decision:

A 6’2.5, 208-pounder who would project as a B-backer in defensive coordinator Todd Orlando’s scheme, Dorbah included Texas in his top five in late March, along with Arkansas, LSU, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State. The Longhorns have been in heavy pursuit of Dorbah, from the coaching staff to former standout defensive end Charles Omenihu, who pitched Dorbah on continuing the line of great Nigerian defensive ends on the Forty Acres.

Last month, Dorbah used his lone official visit on the Longhorns and Texas possesses all six of the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions, so there are plenty of signs that primary recruiter Oscar Giles will be able to close with the key target.

A consensus four-star prospect, Dorbah ranks as the No. 111 player nationally, the No. 7 outside linebacker, and the No. 17 prospect in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
