The Texas Longhorns have now filled both special teams spots in the 2022 recruiting class with Tuesday’s commitment of Austin Regents School kicker Will Stone.
Stone picked up his offer from Texas on Monday and only needed a matter of hours before announcing his decision to remain in his hometown to kick for the Longhorns. A 6’1, 180-pounder, Stone also held an offer from Michigan State and recently attended a camp at Georgia.
Kohl’s Professional Camps ranks Stone as the No. 15 kicker and the No. 33 punter nationally, including a five-star rating as a kicker.
Here’s the evaluation of Stone:
Stone recently attended a May 2021 Kohl’s Showcase. The prospect showed well on kickoffs and field goals, as well as punting in the pocket. Stone has a bright future in both kicking and punting. Stone is a talented lefty with an athletic frame. He will have the opportunity to compete at the next level early in his college career. In 2020 at the National Scholarship Camp, Stone scored 23 points on field goals and had an impressive score of 104.18 on kickoffs. Stone has made nice gains as a punter and that should help him with schools looking for a kicker that can punt well!
Here’s a few field goals from 62 yards, 60 yards, and a front angle. @NKR_Camps @KornblueKicking @RecruitsCenTex @RSA_Athletics @CoachBrydon @HKA_Tanalski @coachBrian_Egan @CoachBAllen pic.twitter.com/BjYTT5xN6z— Will Stone (@_willstone_) April 19, 2021
Stone is the 11th commitment in the 2022 recruiting class for Texas, joining Arizona deep snapper Lance St. Louis as the special teams additions. The group currently ranks No. 7 nationally and No. 1 in the Big 12, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
