In the wake of a visit to the Forty Acres last Tuesday, Gilbert (Ariz.) Williams Field deep snapper Lance St. Louis committed to the Texas Longhorns on Monday.

I had an amazing day with the Longhorn family! I am excited to announce that I got an offer from the University of Texas!! @CoachJCros @WFCoachCampbell @WFFootballTeam @Coach_Casper @CoachSark @CoachJeffBanks pic.twitter.com/BkYccnp3oG— Lance St. Louis (@LanceStLouis2) June 2, 2021
The addition of the 6’1, 215-pounder gives special teams coordinator Jeff Banks a key addition to the 2022 recruiting class — St. Louis will serve as the potential replacement for current deep snapper Justin Mader, who will be a senior in 2021. Typically, special teams players on scholarship do not return for a fifth season, though Mader could use another year of eligibility due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s what Kohls says about St. Louis:
St. Louis continues to display why he is one of the best in the country and has the talent to play for any program in America. He has a rare combination of athleticism and snapping talent. St. Louis recently competed at the Kohl’s Western Showcase and finished the day with an average snap time of .66 seconds. He followed up his strong charting performance by running a 4.75 second 40-yard dash. St. Louis has the talent and drive to play the position for a very long time. I can’t wait to see which program is fortunate enough to add him to their roster.
