Tom Herman and the Texas Longhorns may be in store to add the 17th member of their 2017 class on Friday, as three-star Vista Murrieta (Cali.) cornerback Javelin Guidry is set to decide between the ‘Horns and the Utah Utes.
A 5’9.5, 180-pound prospect, Guidry was on the 40 Acres over the weekend for an official visit, and the ‘Horns have emerged as the frontrunners in his recruitment down the stretch, despite jumping into the mix late with a Jan. 10 offer.
Prior to his visit to Austin, Guidry officially visited Utah on Jan. 13.
Considering four-star LSU cornerback commit Vincent Kary stated Thursday morning that he would not be going to Texas, landing Guidry on Friday would be a welcomed addition to a class that may be in store for a solid finish by National Signing Day.
It’s worth noting that Guidry’s relationship with the Longhorns coaching staff dates back to their time at Houston, where he pledged to and later decommitted on Nov. 29 following Herman’s departure.
Guidry ranks as the nation’s No. 75 cornerback and the No. 76 player in California, per 247Sports Composite.
