The Texas Longhorns received some welcomed news on Thursday as JUCO defensive tackle signee Jamari Chisholm is now set to arrive on the Forty Acres on Friday, according to multiple reports.
A three-star product out of Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, Chisholm’s absence throughout the offseason was of heightened concern, largely due to the ‘Horns lack of depth across the defensive life. In addition to Paul Boyette Jr.’s graduation, Oscar Giles’ group suffered offseason attrition in the form of a pair of may departures from Jordan Elliott and Marcel Southall.
Chisholm’s arrival just in time for fall camp will give Texas another big, experienced body in the trenches to compliment guys such as Malcolm Roach, Chris Nelson and Poona Ford.
Texas will report for camp on Sunday and preseason practices get underway on Monday.
In Chisholm, the Longhorns add a 6’5, 280-pounder who compiled 57 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks as a sophomore for Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.
