The Texas staff handed out a slew of offers over the weekend and they didn’t let off the gas today to open up the week.
Three new offers went out to prospects that reside outside the state’s borders today and all three were on the defensive side of the ball.
The first offer went out to Smael Mondon Jr. out of Paulding County high school in Georgia. Mondon Jr. is a four star linebacker and the 37th ranked player nationally per 247Sports’ composite rankings.

Mondon Jr. already holds offers from all the heavy hitters in the Southeast region of the country, as he has already piled up close 40 offers to date.
The second offer of the day went out to the East coast, as four star pass rusher Aaron Armitage out of Blair Academy in Blairtown, NJ. Like Mondon, Armitage also has north of 30 offers already on his resume and already has the likes of Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Penn State hot on his trail.

Armitage is ranked 150th nationally according to 247Sports’ composite rankings and is the second ranked player in the state of New Jersey.
The final offer of the day brings us to Omaha, NE, as Avante Dickerson of Westside high netted an offer from the staff. Dickerson is rated 78th overall nationally per 247Sports composite rankings and is listed as the 8th ranked cornerback prospect in the country.

Dickerson holds offers from LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, and Oregon already, but the early Crystal Ball forecasts favor the in-state Huskers as things sit today.
The Texas staff is continuing their national approach for the 2021 cycle and it is clear they are not being hesitant about throwing their hat into the ring for elite prospects from regions near and far.
