Texas misses the cut for 4-star RB Brandon Campbell

New, comment

The Horns do remain in the mix for several other top targets at the position.

The priority targets for the Texas Longhorns are starting to separate from the group of offers at the running back position. On Monday, that separation process included Rosenberg Lamar Consolidated running back Brandon Campbell leaving the Horns out of his top six schools.

The school remaining under consideration by the 5’10, 190-pounder include Alabama, Florida, LSU, Penn State, TCU, and USC. Campbell is a consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 325 player nationally and the No. 22 running back, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Of his 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions, one is for Virginia Tech, which didn’t make his list of final six schools, and the other is for USC.

Texas offered Campbell last June, but in recent weeks other running backs have emerged as priority targets for the Horns — consensus five-star Camar Wheaton, who visited two weeks ago, No. 4 running back LJ Johnson, who is friends with commits Jalen Milroe and Hayden Conner, Virginia TreVeyon Henderson, who planned an official visit to Austin this spring, and Hallettsville’s Jonathon Brooks, who received his first offer from the Longhorns.

So there are still plenty of targets left on the 2021 board for Texas running backs coach Stan Drayton, who is looking to land two players at the position after taking only one in the 2020 class.
