According to a 247Sports report, Brenham inside linebacker and former Houston Cougars pledge Marqez Bimage is now down to just two final options — Texas and Baylor.

Tom Herman and the ‘Horns initially started seeking a flip with a Dec. 11 offer and Bimage later set an official visit to Texas for Jan. 13. Bimage will then take an official visit to Baylor on Jan. 20 and per 247Sports, he’ll make his decision soon thereafter. Considering the bulk of the staff he committed to at Houston is now in Austin, it would appear the Longhorns are the favorites in his second recruitment.

A hybrid pass-rusher prospect who played plenty of defensive end for Brenham, Bimage would be an intriguing prospect in Todd Orlando’s 3-4 defense. Hence, why the previous staff coveted his services at Houston.

The 6’3, 233-pounder plays with a tenacity and pursuit similar to Texas true freshman standout Malcolm Roach — another former three-star recruit.

Ranked as the nation’s No. 25 inside linebacker and the No. 100 player in Texas, Bimage compiled 57 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks as a senior.
