Just hours before National Signing Day officially got underway, the Texas Longhorns offered three-star JUCO defensive tackle Jamari Chisholm and subsequently, have earned his commitment on Wednesday morning.

Chisholm officially visited the Forty Acres on Jan. 13, but didn’t add an offer at the time, as Texas was still pursuing other defensive tackle options such as Ole Miss commit Larrell Murchison. After missing on all option, though, the ‘Horns last-ditch effort to land its first defensive tackle commit of the 2017 class off paid off.
A 6’5, 280-pound prospect, Chisholm ranks as the nation’s No. 161 JUCO product and the No. 23 defensive tackle.
