U.S. Army All-American OL Derek Kerstetter flips commitment to Texas

The in-state product couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play in Austin.


The Texas Longhorns 2017 class continues to grow with yet another flip; this time in the form of San Antonio Reagan offensive lineman Derek Kerstetter.

Committed to Oklahoma State since June, the U.S. Army All-American added a Texas offer on Dec. 16, and just 10 short days later, the 6’5, 280-pounder becomes the 12th member of Texas’ 2017 class and the fifth to join since Tom Herman was named head coach. Kerstetter now becomes the first offensive line commit to join the ‘Horns in this cycle.

A three-star prospect, Kerstetter is ranked as the No. 90 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 134 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.

Texas’ 12-man class now ranks 26th in the nation and No. 2 in the Big 12.
