Less than a week after flipping wide receiver Troy Omeire from the Texas A&M Aggies, the Texas Longhorns received some positive news from another top target at the position, as Gardena (Cali.) Junipero Serra standout LV Bunkley-Shelton released his list of top schools:

As expected, Texas made the cut for the consensus four-star prospect, along with Arizona State, Michigan Nebraska, USC, and Washington.
The Longhorns offered Bunkley-Shelton in early June and hosted him for the first time in late July. He’s expected to take an official visit to Austin this fall before making his decision at the All-American Bowl in early January. Nebraska is set to host him for an official visit this weekend as the Cornhuskers host the Buckeyes in Lincoln.
The 6’0, 180-pounder is the top target for Texas at the H position following the brief commitment of Missouri product Mookie Cooper, who is now pledged to Ohio State. Bunkley-Shelton is considered the No. 194 prospect nationally and the No. 34 wide receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
