Less than a week after adding three-star tight end Cade Brewer, another pledge at the position came on Thursday evening in the form of three-star prospect Reese Leitao.

A former Nebraska Cornhusker commit, the Jenks (Okla.) product picked up a Texas offer earlier in the month and followed up with an official visit to the 40 Acres on Dec. 9. Leitao then decommitted from Nebraska on Dec. 18 and as expected, he’s now a Longhorn.
Leitao now becomes the 12th member of Texas’ 2017 class and the fourth to commit within the last week. He ranks as the nation’s No. 739 player, No. 35 tight end and the No. 12 player in Oklahoma, per 247Sports Composite.
